I was made completely at home in Mavisburn as soon as I arrived. It is superbly comfortable, with a lovely breakfast. The situation is peaceful yet within easy reach of Fort Augustus and the beautiful country around. What marks it out is the exceptional kindness of Elaine and John.

We stayed at Mavisburn after our first days cycling on the great glen way. Elaine was amazing from the moment she opened the door. What a lovely person. Elaine welcomed us into her home and showed us around the lower part of the house before taking us to our room. She then told us that after we had freshened up...

We lodged for two days. The house and the surroundings are beautiful, and comfortable. The house is surrounded by a beautiful yard which is surrounded by woods. The place is somewhat remote from Fort Augustus (10 minutes by car) which can be an added value for the people seeking a quiet place to stay.

We greatly enjoyed our recent stay here. The B+B is located in a lovely quiet setting in the forest but is only about two miles from Fort Augustus, which has anything you may need such as shops, pubs, restaurants. The drive to the B+B through the forest is wonderful and the road well maintained. Our room was tastefully decorated, spotlessly...

A warm welcome awaits you at this B&B. Lovely bedroom on the first floor. This B&B is in a forest area of Fort Augustus, maybe for some people difficult to find, but well worth the effort.

Well maintained, nice rooms. The hosts are lovely, very kind and helpful. We had cycled there and they stored our bikes away for the night and gave us a lift to and from Fort Augustus (2 miles away) for dinner. I was so relieved by this kind offer - I really didn't want to get back on the bike again...
