We've stayed with Julie at Tigh Na Mairi many times and it is always our first part of call when visiting Scotland. We know we will receive a warm friendly welcome, stay in a lovely room and be filled up with a delicious breakfast. Ideal location, adjacent to the Caledonian Canal, is ideal for long peaceful walks and very convenient... More

Located at the top of the locks on right hand side. Great views of locks. Stunning place to be. Even at night the views are stunning. Spend a few minutes watching the boats go through the various locks. Great engineering! The house is very comfortable, guest lounge, beds were comfortable. Breakfast was good, but then I do like my breakfast!... More

Right on the tow path, just a few feet from the Caledonian Canal, just above the Fort Augustus locks, and a couple of hundred yards from the town and all it's amenities, this B&B is in a truly stunning location. The two upstairs rooms have views out over the Canal, while the downstairs one (which we were in) has views... More

Tigh Na Mairi is in a wonderful location - right beside the canal, on the edge of Fort Augustus. We had an upstairs room, with a great view in both directions along the canal. It takes just a few minutes to walk into the village to a pub or restaurant. Our room was quite small, but very clean, and had... More

I stayed here recently for 1 night whilst walking the Great Glen Way. The room was smallish but well appointed and quiet, with a comfortable bed, overlooking the canal. The B&B is a 5 minute walk from the town centre. The host is friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was excellent.

I had booked this B&B on the very last minute, and was pleasantly surprised by it. Julie is a very warm host, she made us very comfortable at her place. The house is located just opposite to the canal and the view from the upper rooms face the canal. Though the rooms are very well maintained but there might be... More
