Great stay great place with superb hosts, they couldn't do enough for us. Spotlessly clean and great food, will be back to do more walking soon. Placed just outside fort William, nice and quiet and away from any crowds, a real getaway place.

It is a great place to stay for climbing, walking, boat-tours, shopping etc. The rooms are clean, big enough, the breakfast is delicious and You have a choice (from simple toast and fresh fuit to Scottish specialties). The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The 4stars are earned.

Mika is fantastic, she'll do everithing about you're comfortable in her house. The bedroom is very clean, and Mika is th best cooker. There is private parking for the guest, and the B&B is in a very quiet neighbour. We'll go back there again if we go to Fort William
