Warm and homely B&B in the heart of Fort Augustus.
We have three double ensuite rooms and one twin room with private facilities which offer superb views of the Caledonian Canal, Loch Ness and the surrounding hills. All our rooms are well equipped with Freeview TVs, tea and coffee making facilities, complimentary toiletries, hairdryer, boot tray, playing cards and torch as well as an informative guest information folder and a little book of Nessie.
We offer a wide choice of Scottish breakfasts including a continental platter, full Scottish or our ever-popular Scottish smoked salmon with scrambled eggs.
Being located mid-way along the 73-mile-long Great Glen Way running from Fort William to the Highland capital of Inverness makes Lorien House B&B the perfect base for exploring the Scottish Highlands, famous for both stunning scenery and rich history. You never know, you might even catch a glimpse of Nessie during your stay!
Bikers, cyclists, canoers and walkers are welcome. Lockable cycle/equipment storage is available, please enquire. Please visit our website for room rates.
Lovely B and B in excellent location with superb breakfast but what makes it special are the wonderful hosts Lin and... Tom who really do make you feel at home (Without any of the chores). Had two nights here but could have happily stayed longer. If we get back to Fort Augustus then I know where we will be staying. Highly recommended. Steve and Teresaread more
Beautiful, tastefully decorated and furnished quality accommodation. Lin and Tom, the owners, give a warm welcome and... really do want to make sure their guests enjoy their stay. Excellent choice of hearty cooked breakfasts with lighter options and freshly-brewed coffee or teas. I would stay here again without hesitation.read more
Lin & Tom immediately made us feel at home, they are so helpful and friendly and made our stay a wonderful experience.... The bedrooms are comfortable with lots of added extras like ear plugs, bottled water, etc. They went the ‘extra mile’ with birthday cake and banners, making my birthday a little more special - and we’d only just met them. Breakfast was cooked to perfection and was delicious. We will definitely be staying again! Thank you Lin & Tomread more

Our hosts were very very kind and they had thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The... spread at breakfast was amazing. Everywhere was so clean and the bed was so comfortable. It made travelling with Covid distancing in place worry free.read more
Great stay at Lorien house. Tom and Lin were very welcoming and friendly. Room was lovely and comfortable with a nice... ensuite bathroom. Very nice cooked breakfast in the morning with help yourself fruit and cereal. Couldn't fault the service, accommodation or location. Right next to a series of locks leading into loch Ness. Recommend The Lock Inn for a drink and food.
Highly recommended accommodation, you will not be disappointed. Highest rating in the area for a reason.read more
Absolutely faultless. Tom and Lin are natural hosts, and the B&B is extremely well appointed. Playing cards, books, a... great tea tray, flashlight, earplugs, etc. in the bedside table in a lovely, clean space. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the chance to have breakfast due to an early departure, but Lin packed us a lunch to go instead. We hope we get the chance to come back, and couldn’t be happier with our stay.read more

Excellent night spent here, Lin and Tom could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. My room was spotless... and very comfortable, I am vegetarian and the breakfast was spot on. I would highly recommend staying if you are in the area.read more
Tom and Lin are lovely people who own run this Guest House perfectly situated in central Fort Augustus where you can... walk to everything. Both were quick to offer helpful suggestions about what to see, where to eat, and helped with some tips about further travels in Scotland. Professional and warm hosts. The rooms are very clean and cozy and breakfast was excellent. We chose to sleep with the window open and the street noise began early. We could also hear guests in other rooms but earplugs fixed that. Would highly recommend a stay here. We thought there was a lot of value in what we received.read more
Lin & Tom are wonderful hosts, very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in the Caledonia... Room, overlooking the actual canal - very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.read more
