This is an excellent B&B. The owners are amazing! They are so friendly and incredibly helpful in figuring out what you want to do in the area. We definitely recommend the Jacobite train and walking to the falls! The breakfast is amazing with more options than most hotels have! They put a lot of effort into making breakfast exactly what...

I was happy with the young couple running this guest house. They were very helpful with plans, had excellent breakfasts, and had clean, comfortable rooms. Best of all, they were at the eastern end of a row of guest houses, making the trip easier to visit Loch Ness, Beauly, Inverness and the northeast of the Highlands. They were also close...

The room was comfortable, love the decor around the guest house of Scottie dogs. The breakfast was delicious and Steve & Cathy were really welcoming. A great guest house, lovely people in a lovely location, only a short walk into city centre Would most definitely recommend.

We were very warmly welcomed by Steve on our arrival in Fort William. The guesthouse is immaculately clean with a very comfortable bed and good shower. There was room for us to spread out our luggage in our room which was handy as we were re packing after walking the WHW. Steve was very helpful with drying our washing and...

Thank you for your lovely review. We are really pleased that you had such a pleasant and comfortable stay. We are very lucky with our location. Nicely situated at the end of the west Highland way, but also in touching distance of Ben Nevis, and the town centre, only 10-15minute walk away.

We have stayed in this wonderful guest house for two nights during our trip to Fort William. Our room was very nice, comfortable and clean. Steve and Cathy were fantastic hosts. A highlight was the breakfast. The day before you can choose from a large selection of different things which will be freshly prepared for breakfast. Delicious, especially the porridge...

We arrived quite late in the evening, after driving up from North Wales. Steve greeted us and showed us our room. Tastefully decorated, clean and very comfortable room indeed. I loved the little touch of having a "wee Scottie dog" toy on the bed. The breakfast was excellent, fruit, yogurt, cereal, full cooked with toast. WOW! Steve and Cathy. Our...

My boyfriend and I stayed here this weekend for 2 nights while we climbed Ben Nevis. We were immediately 'wowed' when we walked in by how beautiful the place was.

The room was very comfortable, with good facilities. The breakfast was fantastic. The whisky porridge has to be tasted to be believed! I really enjoyed my stay. Steve and Cathy had lots of advice on places to visit, which was helpful as I hadn't been to the area before.
