We checked in here (thanks to Loch Ness Inn recommendations) after we were supposed to be staying in The Lovat (but they gave us a room smelling of dogs and wouldn't change it without charging us alot more for an upgrade). The decor in Thistle Dubh is not some modern luxury highland fling but is homely and absolutely spotless (more...

Been coming here for a few years with work. Margaret goes out her way to make sure you have a great stay. Breakfast is hearty and she will make sure you are set for the day. Rooms are massive with everything you need. If walking the great glen, in the village for work or just passing through, I'd recommend Thistle...

My family recently stayed at this B&B while on a three day tour of Skye and the Highlands. We had a wonderful stay at this charming house. The proprietress was lovely and the breakfast was outstanding. The location was good -- a short walk into town with nice running routes nearby. We would definitely recommend this B&B.

Rooms are very cute, owners are very friendly and helpfull, breakfast is excellent and bathroom has all you need and even more. What else would you need?! We came quite late which was not a problem after informing them.

The friendly proprietress Margaret was attentive & sensitive to one of the guests allergy. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean. The breakfast was plentiful and very good and there was also provision for the more diet conscious. Within easy walking distance to Loch Ness and restaurants.

A great place to stay if you want to explore Loch Ness for the day. The B&B is a 5 min walk from town, the rooms are comfy and clean, hot showers and fab breakfast! A win in my books. The staff were really friendly and gave us recommendations of where to eat etc. Thank you for a lovely stay

My husband and I stayed here in this modern, new home for two nights. Margaret was ironing our sheets when we arrived--that is how conscientious she is about making sure her guests have perfection! She was a joy to be around and chat with. We know she was exhausted because she had no help with the chores; however, her husband...

We stayed at this inn for one night with our 14 year old daughter while hiking the Great Glen Way. We loved our experience at this inn. Margaret went out of her way to accommodate us. She drove us to dinner (at her suggestion) because it was raining and even offered to pick us up when we were through!! Our...

Walking the West Highland Way and now the Great Glen Way, we have stayed in many B&Bs. This one rates the lowest in my opinion. Walking to Fort Augustus I developed a painful Achilles tendon. We reached our B&B, Thistle Dubh, an hour before check-in time (our error). We were rudely told to walk back down to the village and...
