    A small, cozy little BnB very near to the Urquhart Castle and next to Loch Ness. We chose to stay here as it was out of the way yet very close to food, Loch Ness, the castle. etc. The owner/manager was very friendly and helpful.

The Glen Bed and Breakfast is a small family business located in the heart of the pretty village of Drumnadrochit within easy walking distance of local tourist attractions, restaurants/cafés and Loch Ness. We welcome visitors keen to explore the Highlands and enjoy our wonderful scenery and rich heritage.
Hi I'm Juliet, I love hiking, biking, kayaking and just getting out there in the wilds - so the Highlands of Scotland is a perfect place to live.....but every now and then I get the travel bug . Welcoming guests into my home is a wonderful experience as I enjoy meeting new people. Everyone is unique and filled with unique experiences.
Located on the shores of Loch Ness, Drumnadrochit is an ideal base for exploring the Highlands. Nearby attractions include Urquhart Castle, The Loch Ness Exhibition centre and ancient Corrimony chambered cairns. Travelling a little further afield you can visit the Caledonian Canal, scenic Glen Affric, the Highland capital Inverness and also Fort George and Culloden Battle field. Day trips to the beautiful Isle of Skye and exploring the North Coast 500 route are recommended. The local area has some fantastic walking paths and is on the Great Glen Way and Affric Kintail long distance walking routes.
