We stayed at this Guesthouse for one night around Easter. The room and ensuite were modern and clean and our host welcomed us warmly and had some great tips for the area. If Fort William is a stop on your Scotland trip I can 100% recommend staying here!

We stayed at the MacLean Guest House for two nights after finishing hiking the West Highway Way and were exhausted. They immediately made us feel at home and very generously helped us when we were in a pickle. We were trying to get tickets to the Jacobite steam train but had no electronic devices to purchase tickets (as there was...

We stayed here one night on a 4 day tour with Rabbie's. The guesthouse looks rather new and was very nice. The room was very nice, the bed very comfortable, and the whole place was very clean. The breakfast was very good. There were juices and fresh fruits available, as well as cereal and the fresh-cooked hot breakfast. The location...

This is a gem, mainly due to the owners Mark and Brandi, plus the whole guest house is comfortable and spotless. We were allocated a family room on the top floor. The room was very comfortable, with snowy white linen and towels, lovely bathroom with brilliant shower. Fantastic customer service, very accommodating. We arrived early on the sleeper train, and...

Stayed here for two nights at the end of the West Highland Way. We arrived soaking wet but we're warmly greeted and shown the drying room. Plenty of old newspapers for stuffing wet boots. The room was immaculate, with a large modern ensuite. The free WiFi gave a fast and strong signal, with the added bonus of being able to...

Stayed one night before walking the Great Glen Way. The owner greeted us and was very helpful and welcoming. Our room was at the front of the building on Belford Road only 5 minutes walk from the railway station. There can be a lot of traffic using this road but the noise was not troublesome. Our ensuite room was spotlessly...

Lovely new facility with a very nice owner and warm hospitality. Good breakfast.. love the fresh fruit option after all the heavy meals eaten on the West Highland Way. It was a comfortable way to spend two nights after the hike.

This newer guest house is clean and attractive. It is well decorated with taste. Rooms are not large but very comfortable. The bath towels were the largest and fluffier then I've ever seen! Breakfast was very good! The owners were very helpful. I observed her helping other quests with transportation issues, direction, and dinner reservations. She really went above and...

Stayed here at the start of the Great Glen Walk, very clean room with tea coffee and biscuits in room. Shower and toilet very noisy you can hear other rooms using there's. We had a room on the front of the house so you do get road noise. Breakfast good.
