Lovely friendly couple beautiful rooms and grounds. Breakfast included in the room was lovely and we where also advised on local places to go by the owners. Great place to stay in that neck of the woods, very peaceful. Very happy with our stay

Sums us up pretty well, thank you for your kind words! Please remember when booking your next stay to check our availability directly with ourselves, as we do not sell all our rooms through online travel agents during the summer months. Cheers, Rory

Outside grounds beautiful they have a lovely garden. Rooms ok but you do hear bathroom noise from next door rooms. Breakfast only ok and small portions and you can only have what you put on the form the night before, one couple forgot to fill there's in so they had to just have toast.

I am sorry to hear you would not stay again! To all future travellers please note the positive response's outweigh the negative, and there is always a reason for the negative!

We stayed on 21st August for a short one night stay only. Both the rooms we took were decent and stuffed with the essentials. One named Skye.. the other's name I don't remember. The tilted room-windows were neatly placed and perfect to enjoy the scenery around. In-room tea n coffee maker with many choices really helped us in that rainy...

We stayed at the top room which I believe was called skye. We had been walking on the Great glen way. It was ideal for what we wanted. Good breakfast. I would recommend this stay for those in the area or just passing through.

Just read some other reviews and can not understand what went wrong. Part of the charm of staying in a B&B is being welcomed into someone's home. Instead when we arrived there was a note telling us to call someone else. Thankfully we are English speaking otherwise this would have been very difficult. We do understand that sometimes owners might...

The area around Drumnadrochit has a wealth of walks and is situated on the Great Glen Way and Woodlands is an Excellent Haven to rest up for the night.
