When booking our trip this B&B didn't actually show up on search/compare websites, so we ended up here completely by chance. There was a problem with our previous booking, which was a huge panic as we were travelling on foot. Caroline very kindly picked us up from the nearby town and even offered us lifts in and out of Fort Augustus for the duration of our stay!
Finding this place was beautiful serendipity. Welcoming, immaculate, comfortable. We were placed in the double room (room 1) and greeted both mornings by breathtaking views of the Summer mist over the loch. The rooms had everything we needed, including a spotless en-suite shower room and little shortbread biscuits! They don't have locks on the doors, which we found a little odd, but it wasn't really a problem. Beds and pillows were fresh, soft and warm, and Caroline gives the room a quick tidy each day.
Breakfast was fantastic. We chose what we wanted and it was ready for us the next morning. We met the other current guests over breakfast, all in equally as good spirits. I think we ended up taking almost 2 hours to have breakfast, laughing away with other guests, being brought more toast, jam and coffee.
The price was £30 per person per night, which we were very happy to pay. We had a lovely peaceful weekend, popping into Fort Augustus for lunch, boat-rides, ice cream and typical tourist shopping.
The owners keep a couple of lovely friendly dogs who adored our fussing but didn't disturb us at all.
Thank you so much!
