“Wonderful; one of the very best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

Ideal, quiet, tranquil, location near to village & Loch Ness, lovely breakfast, Julie & Clive are friendly, helpful & obviously very caring hosts - what's not to like. We've stayed here many times, always book Tigh Na Mairi 1st (and sometimes 2nd & 3rd) when visiting Scotland and keep returning, so something must be right. Can't reccomend enough, easily 5/5.

We were traveling around Scotland as a family of four and tried to find b&b that could give us comfortable stays at not too much expense. In Fort Augustus we found this in the absolute lovely b&b Tigh Na Mairi. Nice rooms, very nice bathrooms, good breakfast and the very lovely view of the beautiful canal, away from houses and trafic. And on top of that our lovely hosts Julie and Clive. Thank you. We will be back another time.

We stayed here from 2-6 July for a much needed break. We had a warm welcome from Julie. First impressions weren't good as new windows have been fitted some time ago and the grey plaster is still visible on the outside. We had a choice of 2 rooms and chose the first floor double for the lovely views. The bed was comfortable and we slept well until sunrise when the room became too bright to sleep.

The decor in the room and indeed the whole house is of a poor standard with lots of work needing to be done. One thing which worried me was that there was no smoke alarm in the room and no sign of any fire procedure.

The breakfast was well cooked but became very repetitive with the only option being fried or scrambled eggs. Three cereals and some fresh fruit was available as was orange juice.

The location is beautiful and with quite a bit of work this place could be stunning but fell short of our expected standard.

Would we return.... Sadly no, as when we go away we expect the standards of home or greater.

Clive/Julie,

Thank you both so much for a wonderful long weekend in Fort Augustus once again. Myself and Jo were reluctant to leave for home but have both fully recovered from 1200 miles of mostly fantastic weather and scenery and are planning a return before the Autumn.

Kind regards,

Ian and Jo.

The b&b is situated on the Caledonian Canal with breathtaking views. The hostess was simply fabulous. She is very kind and well informed on the surrounding area. Returning back to the B&B every night felt like returning home.

I stayed here with my sister and mother this past June for 3 nights. The couple that run this B&B are the kindest people you could ever hope to meet and were very accommodating. There was construction being done on part of the building at the time, so they gave us the option of taking the 3 bed room that we had booked, or taking one of the empty chalets in the park adjacent to the hotel. Needless to say we went with the chalet were we could each have our own room. We were still providing with a delicious and varied breakfast each morning and were given advice on where to sightsee in the area. I can't say enough good things about our experience.

Room Tip: to enjoy really enjoy the area, rent a car
