“Very welcoming and helpful B&B, free wifi, large room with TV”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

We were walking the Great Glen Way and were so exhausted by the time we got to Fort Augustus (and this seems like the bright lights compared to where we'd been earlier). We rang Margaret to say we were on our way once we'd eaten and Gordon picked us up. Fantastic, we were so grateful.

We got a massive room with TV and en suite, breakfast was delicious and generous. We didn't feel under pressure at any point, it was all great. We didn't get the joke about the name of the B&B for a while, you need to know that Dubh is pronounced "Doo"..... :-)

We have stayed in Fort Augustus before and we love it, this was the first time we used the Thistle Dubh and what a treat ! the room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. With a spacious residents lounge. Breakfast was very nice copious tea and toast ! a real home from home we will be back.

Very lovely place, great room seems to be very new and comfortable, tea and coffee which is lovely after and long walk on The Great Glen Way. Great shower and nice breakfast. TV in room and free Wi-Fi. Had a pleasant stay and would recommend a stay here. Had a homemade ham and cheese sandwich for the walk next day - tasted very nice.
