The accommodation is perfect for exploring Loch Ness, Fort Augustus and the Ben Nevis gondola. We enjoyed walks around the Glentruim Estate in the evening. The area is stunning and the accommodation is amazing, clean and comfortable. We were very lucky with the weather. I could only wish we had more time in Highlands.

Thank you for your very kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time here with us.
