I can confirm everything that has been said before about this B&B, spacious clean and comfortable rooms, good and plentiful food at breakfast. Hospitality is excellent and well above average. Anne was lovely and could not have been more helpful and accomodating. Would not hesitate to recommend Carn a Chuilinn and its owner to anyone.
Important to us was ample onsite off road parking. The place was easy to find and even though on the main road, the house is well set back and quite private. A lovely spot and despite all the clouds and rain on our trip, it was great to see such a lovely view every time you look out of the window. We had the room upstairs which I think has the best view with a double aspect. Although when we booked we were too late for the king-size room (on ground floor) we had a huge room with 2 single beds and were offered them put together, but not necessary for us and we slept like logs.
The walk to the village is not that bad actually, took us 15-20 mins only.
We travelled miles around the highlands from here, Fort Augustus was a very good central base, we even got up as far as Lairg and Loch Shin to see friends, and having a lovely B&B to come back to after each long day, and at a very reasonable prices, was a big bonus for us. (We have paid a lot more a night for some B&B's and not been half as satisfied.)
We recommend the Lock Inn in the village for a pub meal, the food was very good.
Try the walk from just down the road by the B&B it goes through the old graveyard and follows the river up and then back down to FAug and Loch Ness, nothing too strenuous but pretty.
Finally do NOT even bother to read the "grumpies" review (2008) sounds like sour grapes from unreasonable guests.
