The place is beautiful, set above the road overlooking the loch. Our room was very well appointed right down to the homemade shortbread in a glass container for an evening snack. The breakfasts were varied, from smoked salmon to haggis to eggs, sausages, and bacon. Homemade scones and award-winning marmalade. Ian and Sheila are welcoming hosts. We have stayed in...

The location is a little bit outside of the village but you can enjoy a impressive silence and you get an extraordinary sight on the loch. The rooms are in a top condition. There are tea and biscuits in the room and also a booklet with recommendations in the neighborhood. Lovely and helpful owners.

We stayed at The Heathers and used it as our base for the bank holiday weekend. Perfect location is handy for both Fort William and Loch Ness. Ian and Sheila couldn't have been more welcoming, offering us tea and shortbread in the lounge when we arrived, with views over the loch. The room was immaculate, with crisp bed linen and...

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I am sorry about the internet reception as we are on a satellite service and we do appreciate it can be a bit intermittent or worse. We hope that one day the powers that be will see fit to give us an improved service.

My wife and I and a friend spent three nights at The Heathers and enjoyed superb accommodation and hospitality. Sheila and Ian were the most wonderful hosts at their handily located B&B in the Western Highlands. Sheila's cooking was a standout.

We stayed at The Heathers for 3 nights and I don't think I have had a nicer experience of a B&B ever. The rooms were lovely - so clean and comfortable, and we were made to feel extremely welcome by Ian and Sheila.
