We arrived by motorbike, rather earlier than arranged but our landlady Margaret took us in and showed us our room and the breakfast area. And what a breakfast it turned out to be. A vast quantity and variety of fresh fruit as well as cereals and a great cooked breakfast. The landlord, whose name escapes me, asked if I wanted... More

That was a last moment booking via http://www.visitscotland.com/accommodation/ but we couldn't have booked a better place to spend our night in Fort William. Margaret welcomed us very warmly and showed us a nice twin room and a large bathroom at the next door. The room was very clean, with TV, tea kettle, tea, milk and biscuits. Beds comfortable. We could... More

Where to start?! This wonderful B&B is run by a lovely woman (I wish I caught her name) who really made our stay in Fort William rather special. Reasonably priced with stunning views of Loch Linnhe and the mountains beyond! The bedroom was modern, immaculate and extremely comfortable. And it was only a quick drive or walk into town. Highly...

Great place. Nice view of the loch. Hostess was pleasant and very accommodating. We slept well and enjoyed a great Scottish breakfast. If you're looking for low-key, this place is great! On a side note, the carpeting is also plaid!!!

Enjoyed the pretty view from our room. The bathroom wasn't actually en suite, but just next door, and was totally private. Very pretty decor, and a lovely breakfast room with a delicious breakfast. Sorry that I never asked what the name Alt-an means. Perhaps Margaret will post an answer. Very much enjoyed our stay - the night following our day... More
