Neil made us very welcome on our 6th day of the WHW. We were offered Whiskly on arrival and felt at home, playing cards in the sitting room. Our 3 bed room was a good size and we had the best WIFI connection of the whole walk. Breakfast was superb.

We arrived a hour early for check in and took a wonderful walk in this town. We met some folks who were in the middle of their 2-week, 10-mile-a-day hike who happened to be staying at the same place. They had stayed there before and had a wonderful experience, thus their second time back. Likewise, we had a comfortable visit and a great deal at the restaurant just a block away. The guest house is definitely kid and family friendly. There is a market close by. Glad we stayed here.

We stayed here for a night making our way south from two weeks in the Highlands and could not have done better! Our rooms were very nicely arranged, fresh and spotlessly clean. Beds and linens were very comfortable so we slept perfectly. Strong wifi and nice in-room setup for media (TV) if you need that. There is also a comfortable lounge. Ample on-premise parking.

Especially nice touches in the comfort/convenience area: 1) the rooms were set up with USB charging points making it easier to keep our electronics running and 2) the heat has individual in-room controls so we weren't dependent on a whole-house system. This latter was a real plus as heat at the last dozen places we stayed in the U.K. came on at the host's timing, often leaving the bedroom or bath stuffy or too cool. These points really add up.

Neal is a very agreeable host and took great care of our group of two couples. His dining recommendation of the Laroch across the street led us to one of the best meals of our holiday.

The full Scottish breakfast was delicious - our eggs were piached perfectly. A great start for a full day of travels.

While Neal explained that renovations were progressing, we found the whole place fine as it is. If he makes more improvements it will just be that much more attractive.

Ballachulish is a charming village with quite an interesting history of slate quarrying. Great access to the area and much quieter and less commercial than Fort William.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely book here again.

We had a night here as part of our walking experience on the West Highland Way. Neil took one look at us after we had walked Ranoch Moor in the wind and rain and promptly offered us a whisky on arrival.
Boots, wet clothes and dinner booking were dealt with efficiently. The rooms are well laid out with everything you could want and immaculately clean. Fabulous pub over the road with good local food.
Brilliant breakfast, comfortable beds and friendly hosts.

Very good setting. Grocery store right next door. The host was gracious to educate us about drying our boots in his drying room. This was a lesson we appreciated. The room had all the amenities. Breakfast was awesome. We would return.
