“Excellent 6 night stay, excellent value for money and excellent hospitality.”
Reviewed 1 July 2011

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.

Room Tip: Ask for the upstairs twin room for best view

We were en route between Lands End and John O Groats, this was our last but one day. After staying in travelodges (absolute cr@p) Anne provided a warm welcome, excellent food, and even helped by washing AND drying some clothes for our next days riding.
Recommend to anyone wanting a quality residence in a lovely area of the country!

A bit outside Fort Augustus in a wonderful surrounding. The rooms are very spacious, nicely decorated with modern bathrooms, TV, etc. The lounge is cosy and makes you feel at home. Breakfast was just delicious and Anne is the most wonderful host a traveller can ask for.
I very much enjoyed my stay!

A first class B&B. We have stayed twice in the last month. The welcome was very warm, room very clean and extremely spacious, a sitting room is provided and the breakfast was top-class. One of the best we have stayed in. It was very quiet too giving us excellent sleeps. We would recommend this one to anyone visiting Fort Augustus and we doubt you'd find a better.

Room Tip: Roon 3 was great but so will the others be.

My friend and I travel annually and 2011 was Scotland. We rent a car and after a couple of nights, prebooked prior to landing, we take off to see the world. We take our chances on B&Bs and this one was a winner. The room was spacious, the bathroom newly redone and everything was spotless. The location was quiet and the hostess very accommodating. It is very near the town of Ft Augustus and we ate at a restaurant/pub there with great food. She offered to fix anything we'd like for breakfast and then visited with us as we ate to point out places of interests, sights to see, etc. I would recommend this to anyone for a great place to spend the night while seeing Scotland.

Carn a Chuilinn is a lovely house on the edge of Fort Augustus, just a nice walk to the pubs and restaurants around the locks. Our hostess Anne was very friendly and helpful and served a wonderful cooked breakfast. There was also a wide selection of cereals, yoghurt, fruit and fruit juices. The room was very comfortable and spacious with a large power shower. We would recommend this accommodation to anyone planning a trip to this area.
