  • "Beautiful boat house!"

    Epic setting! Hard to fault.

  • "Lovely cottage, good base for many walks."

    My only suggestion is that they replace the (non- functional) upper oven with a microwave oven. Otherwise it’s hard to find fault.

  • "The boat house was excellent, location and the house was truly excellent; I would recommend this accommodation."

    We had a fantastic holiday in Invergarry and the Highlands. Loch Oich is stunning and weather was superb. Everything in boat house was too a great standard. Can't wait for another visit in near future. Garry and Mirella

  • "An absolute joy staying 30th Jun for 7 nights."

    Ample room for 2 people.Spotlessly clean and all you need for your break. So peaceful and surrounded by nature which suits us fine. First day for example had a visit in front of us at lochside of a kingfisher sitting waiting for a fish which was caught and returned to its perch plus many sightings including pair of black throated divers. Plenty walks around the grounds and places of interest easy driving with breathtaking scenery. Hotel serves fab scones and coffee/tea and delicious dinner ( best to book ahead for dinner). Janetta is on hand for any problems or advice .Although we didnt require any assistance always good to know she was there for us. So thank you for your service and giving us the most relaxing break in the Boathouse Dave & Chris

  • "The Boat House was situated in a perfect location."

    Area has a really nice peaceful feel right on the lake with deer being seen in the evenings right from the balcony. House has everything that is needed with the bonus of a fire place. Very easy bookings process and easily to find based on directions given. One of the nicest places I’ve stayed so far and I hope to return one day. I would definitely recommend Boath House to anyone.

    A great location and a very helpful host (when we lost our key!)

    Hidden away beside the loch, it is a beautiful place to escape from everyday life. We’ll hopefully be back again some day.

    If you are hesitating about booking the Boat House don’t it was perfect for us and I’m sure you will feel the same.

  • "The boat House is lovely, a really peaceful location, with amazing views and wildlife all around."

    We had a truly relaxing break, a shame the weather did not allow us to use the bedroom balcony as much as we would have liked, but the view into the dark sky at night was wonderful. Very good finish to the whole property, nice warming log fire. We only discovered Fort Augustus late in the day, but it offered great eating and views of the loch ladder from Lochness. Would highly recommend a stay in this lovely location. With an afternoon tea at the local invergarry castle hotel. Look forward to a return visit.
