    Our stay at the Dell was fantastic! It's location in Fort Augustus provided my family and I with very easy access to the shopping and attractions in the town. The house itself had everything we needed, and we particularly enjoyed the modern bathrooms and the AGA. My children (and the teenager!) are very keen to make a return visit this winter and we hope that we can pull it off with holiday schedules...

    OK place to stay for a week, but the terrace need mending. Impressive AGA.

    The weather helped in making our week memorable but The Dell is comfortable and roomy for 8 and well situated for exploring the Highlands - east or west coasts. Fort Augustus is large enough to have local amenities without being too busy and the Caledonian Canal locks provide endless entertainment.

    A fantastic property, this was our second visit and already booked for next year. Really warm welcome and a great base for a week of walking or touring the area. Superb.

    The Dell is a potentially lovely house which is in need of a little extra care and some refurbishment . On stripping beds we were saddened to discover that some mattress covers were not very clean; this also applied to the mattresses themselves. Most of us found the beds uncomfortable and thought replacement mattresses were required. There was a problem with one lavatory in an ensuite backing up. This was a problem that had been reported previously. A very helpful handyman left a plunger and a bucket with us. The same handyman attempted to rectify a fault with staircase lighting:the switches at top and bottom of the stairs did not work properly which was worrying as one of our party was a frail lady in her 80s who would have had difficulty in navigating an unfamiliar landing and staircase in the dark. We felt that, for the price, the front garden was not well tended and that the decking outside the kitchen door was dirty with moss balls in places. There was plenty of coal and wood provided and we were grateful for this as it was cold when we stayed. The central heating was effective when on. Although the lovely bright dining room had a fire laid in the grate the chimney refused to draw and probably needs attention. The kitchen is always delightfully warm because of an Aga range appliance. The kitchen is well equipped. One of our party had been to the Dell on two occasions before and during her last visit, in Autumn 2017, had reported some of these problems. On discovering that they had not been addressed she has cancelled the booking they made for this coming Autumn. The setting of the house is delightful leading to the pretty falls of water and the small but adequately stocked supermarket and local butcher. If all the matters we have mentioned are addressed the Dell would make a comfortable base from which to explore this delightful part of Scotland.

    Response on behalf of the owner; I’m saddened to read your review. I have spoken to the relevant people with regard to your concerns and asked for explanations and actions that may be required. You can imagine my surprise at receiving this give only last week The Dell received a Customer Satisfaction Award for 2018. I do hope that this experience will not deter you from visiting this part of the world again. It is a truly beautiful place with lots of options for accommodation. Thanks for your review it was constructive and helpful.

    Lovely big house that we returned to yet again this year, and plan on returning next year. Only a few things that need seeing to, main one is the decking, especially right at the back door, really dangerous as feel it would't take much to fall through it, really needs to be removed. Having mobility issues this was a huge issue for me. Otherwise had a fab time as always, thank you!!!
