A warm and friendly greeting awaited my arrival in Spean Bridge. The room was spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and a decent power shower! Breakfast came to order with host Phillipe advising on the surrounding area, happy to share his extensive knowledge. If you are considering a stop over in Spean Bridge then I can fully recommend The Braes.

We stayed here as the first night before our NCS500 trip. The house and surrounding are beautiful, the room was very spacious and comfortable, very clean with a private spacious bathroom. The breakfast was very nice as well. We are very glad that we pick this guest house for our stay! Highly recommended!

The drive is gravel which isn't great for motorcycles, but he allowed us to park them under a car port which was very handy. Once we'd parked up Philippe just couldn't... More

Theresa showed up to whisk us the 6K to... More
