We have four letting rooms. Two comfortably sized double ensuite bedrooms on the ground floor and two family rooms on the first floor each with private bathroom. All bed rooms are available with tea/coffee making facilities, hair dryer, Freeview TV and free wifi Internet access as standard.

We welcome children and can provide cot and toddler booster seat for infants.

The Glen is an ideal location to use as a base to explore the Highlands including the Highland capital, Inverness, the west coast of Scotland, Isle of Skye, Applecross, Loch Ness, the far north and whisky country.

Being on the Great Glen Way, it is also an ideal base for long distance walkers and cyclists and a short drive will take you to fantastic hill walking and climbing in nearby glens.

Rooms & Prices

Our two ground floor en suite double bedrooms are spacious with comfortable sofa areas. These rooms are ideal for couples or families with young children as they can also accommodate our quality folding bed and cot.

One of our first floor rooms offers a double and single bed. The other first floor room offers three single beds. Both these rooms are ideal for couples, families or friends. Please note that the two private bathrooms for these rooms are on the ground floor, but due to this we aim to keep the price very reasonable.

Places to visit while staying at The Glen Bed & Breakfast, Drumnadrochit, Loch Ness

The Highlands of Scotland are tremendously rich with history, heritage and stunning scenery. Here are just a few of many of our local attractions.

Urquhart Castle - a scenic thirty minute walk
The site of a bronze age fortress, it was visited by St Columba in the sixth century.
A natural progression was the building of a medieval castle in the thirteenth century which was destroyed and rebuilt many times until it grew into the third largest castle in Scotland.
Finally destroyed by the government to prevent it becoming a Jacobite stronghold in 1692, today it is a romantic ruin with some fascinating features.

Highland Cattle - a gentle ten minute walk
These much photographed cattle can be seen on a local farm. This one is called Taggart. They love people, but just beware those horns if they shake their heads.

Glen Affric - stunning twenty mile drive
A stunning glen which lets you see what the Scottish Highlands looked like 8,000 years ago. Magnificent Scots pines and native woodlands surrounding lochs and fast flowing burns.
Some excellent woodland walks.

Corrimony Prehistoric Stone Circle - just seven miles
Try to imagine this standing stone circle and burial cairn as it was four thousand years ago. A must see!
As you walk around it, picture it with white and pink stone facings on the mound and surrounded by a shelf of seashells. When it was opened in the nineteen fifties, the cremated remains were found of a lady who had been interred nearly four thousand years previously.

Inverness Castle - sixteen miles
This stunningly located castle is modern by Highland standards, only one hundred and fifty years old.
However, it stands on the site of what might have been a Pictish fort, then perhaps one of Macbeth's castles before becoming a medieval stronghold. In the eighteenth century the Hanoverians built Fort George here and Bonnie Prince Charlie's Jacobites blew it up.
Today the castle is the local courthouse so you can't visit the inside unless you get arrested! Well worth a picture though.

Fort Augustus - Gateway to Loch Ness
A lovely tourist (and local) pastime is to sit outside a Fort Augustus bar or restaurant with a drink or meal spending a lazy hour or two watching the boats passing through the series of locks on the canal.

Contact & Location

We are located right in the centre of the charming village of Drumnadrochit, monster capital of the world. Within one hundred metres there are five restaurants and coffee shops, a delightful village post office shop and a tourist information office.

A courtesy coach runs from just outside the door to a boat trip on Loch Ness. Buses to Fort William, Fort Augustus, Inverness and Cannich pick up within 50 metres.

We are on the Great Glen Way so perfectly located for walkers and cyclists too.
