I visited with my husband, brother and sister in law. We had walked the Northern half of the West Highland Way and wanted a place for comfort and recovery and a starting point to climb Ben Nevis. This fit the bill beautifully! On approach everything looked clean and well maintained. We were welcomed by Janet who offered us an alternative...

We were warmly welcomed by Graeme on arrival, after a 10+ hour car drive from the south. Shown to a double room overlooking the conservatory eating area and carpark, we were politely shown around and then left to relax, for which we were very grateful. Breakfast was simple and easy to request for the next day, and the quality was...

About 20 minutes walk from the trail up Ben Nevis and 10 minutes walk from the town centre, this is an ideal location, particularly if you don't have a car. Rooms are comfortable and the cooked breakfast is excellent and generous. The couple who run it are very friendly, helpful and informative.

While walking the West Highland Way (again) we stopped over here on our arrival in Fort William. This is the second time we have stayed here and the excellent high standards of accommodation are as we remembered from our first visit. The owners could not be more helpful in ensuring that everything is done to make your stay a pleasant...

We stayed in this Guest House for one night at the end of January. We received a lovely welcome from Janet and Graeme and were made to feel very comfortable. Our room was fine - the decor is slightly dated but the bed was comfy and the room was spotless. Good shower (although there was no shower gel/ shampoo etc...

We have stayed with Janet and Graeme for many years now on regular trips to the north of Scotland. This is a friendly, comfortable, clean and up together B&B. The bedrooms are not particularly large, but are all of good quality. Breakfast is excellent and is served in the conservatory. The B&B welcomes walkers. I would unreservedly recommend this B&B...

Stayed here for a few nights while visiting Fort William. Good base to walk up Ben Nevis, close to Steall Falls (well worth the walk!) and not too far from the city centre. Room was en suite, clean and well presented with towels and tea/coffee facilities. Proprietors were friendly and a good source of local knowledge although we sometimes felt...

Had a great time at this bed & breakfast. It is a great location very close to the Glen Nevis area (definitely take the path to Steall Falls), the train station if you take the Jacobite Steam Train, and the town centre.

The beds might not be kingsize but the house feels cozy and they make a good breakfast. I definitely check if they have a room available the next time I go to explore Ben Nevis. The hosts are wonderful people, willing to help you out with directions and finding nice walking paths.

Very good location, walking distance from downtown, and on the road to Glen Nevis. Good breakfast. Friendly owners. Only "minus" would be the carpet in the bathroom, and a "plus" would be more soap and shampoo available. Wifi impossible from rooms overlooking the street.

“We were in a double room and it was such a good size for us. We had space for our bags and plenty of room for all my girly things. When we arrived we could see in the vacant rooms and they all looked of an equal standard. We were on the top floor and I loved looking out our window to the little creek in the garden which also gave a natural lullaby during the night.”
