My husband and I had a great experience staying at Braeside. Paul and Aileen are fantastic hosts, cook a wonderful breakfast, and have great suggestions for things to do and where to eat. The house is very clean and quiet and is in an ideal location. It's an easy walk into Fort William for supper every night, and walking along...

I stayed at Braeside House at the end of the West Highland Way and can highly recommend it. Paul and Aileen we very friendly and hospitable, good facilities and far enough away from the centre of Fort William to be quiet yet able to access the town easily.

My wife and I stopped here with our springer spaniel and border terrier to climb Ben Nevis over a weekend. The accommodation was immaculately clean and big enough for us and our dogs pop up kennel. Breakfast was freshly made with a good choice of fully cooked "Scottish" or cereals yoghurt etc. All served in the conservatory overlooking the loch,...

We had a wonderful stay at Braeside House! The owners Paul and Aileen were fabulous hosts. Paul gave us some great suggestions for local food and beautiful walks in the area (Steall Falls is a must!). Braeside is perfectly located-- only a five minute walk from the center of town. Our room was warm and cozy with a beautiful view...

I stayed at Braeside House for just one night while travelling to Mallaig to catch the Calmac ferry to the Isle of Eigg. I primarily booked with Aileen and Paul because they were rated as dog friendly, (I had my Border Terrier in tow,) and they were reasonably priced with breakfast included. The first lovely surprise was Aileen waiting for...

Stayed 5 nights and had a wonderful time (also helped by the weather). Paul and Aileen were excellent hosts and very informative about the local area (and further a field) and recommended some brilliant places to visit (should have stayed longer!) Breakfast excellent as well.

The Braeside House is in the perfect location in Fort William. It is close enough to the center of town to walk easily to restaurants, shopping, and attractions, but far enough from town to be quiet and serene. A delicious breakfast with a wide variety of offerings was served in a wonderful sun room with beautiful views of the loch...

We stayed here for 2 nights are the end of our roadtrip through Scotland. Paul and Aileen are wonderful hosts. Our room was clean, comfortable and cozy. Breakfast is fabulous. I can especially recommend Paul's pancakes. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Fort William.

Once again we arrived late at night and Paul was waiting to invite us in. He sacrificed a night out with Aileen to be there for us. That is dedication to his customers. The couple are wonderful and nothing is to much trouble, the breaky is very generous and of good quality. The best haggis I have ever tasted. Once...
