We reached this B & B at the end of a long day's walk and at first, didn't enjoy the climb up out of Fort William to reach it. However, we swiftly changed our minds when we saw the view from the front patio, which was stunning. Aileen and Paul were very welcoming and Paul's breakfast was amazing. First place...

We've stayed here twice and on both occasions it's been lovely. The rooms are small but are cosy and are very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and Paul & Aileen are very friendly and welcoming. It's just a short walk down the hill to the main street in fort william.

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.

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...
