Amazing friendly owners, nice rooms, the food was great and we had a really pleasant stay! Fort William is a beautiful place in Scotland and central to all different hot spots. For people that like photography, go there! The Owner is a really good photographer of landscapes in Scotland!

Bert and Mieke provide a very nice B&B with lots of personal attention. Rooms are a bit small, and breakfast is great. Beautiful view on Ben Nevis. If you want, you also get free advise in photography

It doesn't get better than this. From welcome to farewell. So glad I chose to stay here, Miecke and Bert were the perfect hosts. I particularly enjoyed talking to Bert about his photographs which he has on display throughout. Worth staying just for that alone ! Sorry my stay wasn.t longer

Made very welcome. If back in Fort William will stay again. Good pub for food a couple of minutes away. Overlooked by Ben Nevis. A very good breakfast indeed, lots of choice, plenty toast if needed. The fruit salad was excellent.

Plenty parking, a nice outside seating area in the big garden. Mieke and Bert were excellent hosts, the room and ensuite were very comfortable and spotless and the breakfasts...

The hostess/owner was wonderful, making us feel at home from the start. We had 2 rooms and both were comfortable. The food was delicious, the gardens lovely, and the hostess very helpful. Soon after we arrived she booked us a taxi and when it failed to show up, she drove us herself. The host/ husband is a good cook, gardener,...
