“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

We stayed just for one night. We came a little bit late (at 19.00) and Tom welcomed us (later when we had internet connection we found a letter from Tom, who was worried if we got lost and sent us information about their location and contacts).
Lynn welcomed us with snacks and scones, which were exactly what we needed, because we came very hungry.
Everything was perfect, we slept well. We were the only guests that night.
In the morning breakfast was served at exact time we asked before. The dining room has a nice view over LochNess.
Lynn and Tom are great hosts. It was really pity to leave their house so early. Hope to come back again some day (even if they have a B&B in another town :)

My partner and I stayed in the King room for three nights.
It was our first time away since having our son so was the perfect place to stay.
The room is amazing! It has the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in.
The bath is massive, I could've stayed in it for hours.
Luxury throughout!!
The room has a lovely view over Loch Ness, unfortunately we didn't spot Nessie :)
Tom and Lyn were the perfect hosts.
They made sure that we were happy during our stay.
Lyn is an amazing cook. She makes the best breakfast and dinner!
The biscuits/ cakes in our room were well needed after a long day of walking & water sports.
Because we flew up we didn't have the car.
Luckily, we didn't want to do too much so managed without one.
Fort Augustus is 4 miles south and Invermoriston is 2 miles north.
The Great Glen Way is accessible through the back garden so walking wasn't a problem (during the day).
Tom was kind enough to pick us up a couple of times. There is also one taxi driver in the area.
We'll be recommending this B&B to all of our friends and will return again one day :)

How can you not want to stay more nights? We arrived tired, and hungry, to find Lynn bearing delicious fresh scones, cream and jam, plus other snacks, tea even. Tom was most helpful with a dinner location nearby. And the bedroom was comfortable, modern, tidy, maybe a little cluttered in a homely and nice way. Beautiful bed. A great bathroom. Just the thing for my partner and me. The breakfast was equally wonderful. Well worth finding this haven. Thank you, Lynn and Tom.

The hosts were very helpful and friendly. We were greeted with some lovely treats, which was perfectly timed as we hadn't eaten in hours prior!

The room itself was one of the best bedroom decors I've ever seen. So much effort and love has gone into decorating this room. I spent ages just looking around!

Stacked with your usual Coffee/tea, however additionally, a nice change to have included hot chocolate and Ovaltine!

Views overlooking Loch Ness, although from our room it was quite blocked by the trees (Naturally).

Fort Augustus is just a short drive away, so that's a plus! Lovely secluded, romantic getaway, just absolutely ideal if you want to be as near to Loch Ness as possible.

Breakfast was lovely and the views from the breakfast room, you just can't fault this place. Thoroughly recommended to anyone!

We loved it!! Lyn and Tom have made this a real gem of a place to stay. We loved the atmosphere of their home - lots of candles!! The room was superb and the bathroom perfect! We had a good nights sleep and super breakfast. The whole presentation was first class and they were such nice people. We did not want to leave and intend to return!

Our second night in scotland, and of course Loch Ness needed to be included in the trip. We arrived in the early evening at the B&B, and were immediately welcomed by the owners, we got some canapes and were shown to our room (we booked the 'king' room), and it was a really very nice room with a great bathroom. We booked here for 1 night.

Small deception although : we thought we would be really at the edge of the loch with the B&B, when in fact there is a road in between the house and the Loch, when looking afterwards a bit better at the pictures on the website, we realized we took too literally 'at the shores of the Loch'..

We went out for dinner to Fort Augustus at the Boat house as recommended by Tom and Lyn, the food was not bad , just a pitty that they don't serve any food outside after 6pm, inside is a bit more noisy and more family/group orientated.

Once back we were quite tired and wanted to go immediately to bed, this although proved to be a bit more challenging as we could hear the guests next door as if they were in our room ( to be fair, Tom insisted, at check in, on the fact to make as less noise as possible at night) we now know why, the walls are not really sound proof, and even if guests make minimal noise, it still is like they're standing next to you in your room, at least for us it seemed so..

Breakfast went on quite quickly, we had to pre-order the day before, and our eggs benedict arrived almost before we were sitting down (we like to eat first our yoghurt and fruit), anyway this felt a bit like rushing through breakfast, which made that we left for our next destination quite quickly ....

Overall a place we could advice, just to beware for the less soundproof walls !

Lyn and I read your review yesterday and its content has really hurt us. We would never 'deceive' people about our location. When our guests book with booking.com they can clearly see on the map a road between us and the loch. On our website under 'location' we tell people we are on the other side of the road from the loch. The loch is only 65 steps from our front garden and it can be accessed by a small footpath.

We are sorry that you felt we were trying to rush you at breakfast. We believed that having your breakfast on the table quickly was an important part of our efficient service. A lot of our guests would agree. If only you had told us you wanted cereals first, we would have served your hot breakfast later. We would never rush our guests because we treat them the way we would like to be treated.

You are correct in that our soundproofing is not perfect, we explained that and asked you very kindly to keep noise levels to a minimum unfortunately the guests in the next room to you didnt. The soundproofing has never really been a problem as can be seen in over 100 booking.com reviews.

The content of your review gives people a bad picture of Lyn and I and our Bed & Breakfast. We are sorry if we have done something wrong to deserve that.

We would like you to consider either taking your review off Tripadvisor or amending it because it doesnt give a true picture. We are sorry we have had to reply to your review on Tripadvisor, this is because you didnt respond to our personal email to you.

As at 11th September Loch Ness Highland Cottage is in the top 5 out of 367 accommodations in the Scottish Highlands in booking.com. It has over 104 guest reviews which put us there because of our service, quality, breakfast, decor of rooms and location.

You and your family or friends will always be welcome here.
