We were greeted by an unpleasant odour and a friendly man. Our rooms were basic and not well finished, untidy paint, dirty floor. Dark sheets with hair and bits? Ugh. Breakfast - who serves squash as orange juice? That just set the tone, a disappointing place to start out West Highland Walk from

The host Morag is very warm and welcoming, the room and facilities (ensuite room for 4) were well-decorated and well-equipped. Had cookies and complimentary hot drinks in our rooms for us when we arrived, totally made our day! Breakfast was awesome, definitely a great place to start the West Highland Way.

We were beginning our walk of the West Highland Way and found Best Foot Forward through blogs and the official website for the WHW. It was quite convenient to the train station and the start of the walk in Milngavie. Rooms are well equipped with nice opening skylights. Breakfast was better than average with a choice of Full Scottish or...

Best Foot Forward is an average economy B & B. It served our purposes adequately as an overnight stay prior to starting point the West Highland Way (WHW) trek. It is walking distance from the Milngavie Train Station but is quite an uphill slog with luggage for the last 200 meters. Adequate Free WiFi provided and the breakfast was the...

Stayed for one night before starting our walk on The West Highland Way. Made to feel very welcome by the owner who took time to explain everything including suitable places to eat in the village. Our room was very large and comfortable with everything you needed. Excellent breakfast with the nice touch of your national flag on the table. Convenient...

A very friendly, welcoming B&B with some excellent recommendations for meals in local restaurants. The bedroom and bathroom were very large, though the decor is looking a little dated and a handle was 'hanging' from its wardrobe door. We had a nice, big king bed but I have to be brutally honest here and say that I was not convinced...

We stayed here for two nights before beginning our West Highland Way adventure. We felt welcome from the first moment we arrived! Our room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was wonderful. The owners were helpful with everything from restaurant reservations/recommendations to help with all of our questions. Very nice stay!

A group of six Spanish walkers stayed for one day as a starting point for the WHW and it was tough to leave that place. The accomodation is excelent, the food is suberb and Mrs Morag and her husband are such a kind of people that you want to stay there.

Stayed at Best Foot Forward the night before starting the WHW. Had a huge room with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was lovely, usual cereal and toast plus choice of full breakfast or we went for the smoked salmon and scrambled egg which was lovely. Only short walk into town and the start of the WHW so ideally placed. Parking...
