My partner and I stayed at Gowan Brae for 5 nights to do some winter hill walking. We had a really comfortable room with lovely views of the mountains. Ann was friendly and helpful and provided delicious breakfasts with fantastic vegetarian options (would really recommend the breakfast cranachan and the avocado and spinach on toasted muffin). We would definitely recommend...

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Scottish road trip holiday with my daughter. The B&B was easy to find from the south side of town on the A82, it's on a street one up the hill from the main high street with all it's shops, pubs and restaurants. It has the look of a traditional Highland boarding...

Great location - quiet with parking but centrally situated for shops and restaurants. Warm and comfortable room with lovely view across the loch. My best breakfast of our trip (fishcake, smoked salmon and poached eggs)!

This nice house B&B is ideally located in Fort William, being situated above the town itself and only 5 minutes walk from the town centre. This is a welcoming and friendly place to stay, the rooms are spacious and warm and the breakfast is amazing! Certainly look to come back here next time we are in Fort William

We stayed here for two nights in May after our walk along the West highland Way and couldn't fault it. We were welcomed with a 'wee dram' by the lovely Ann after she had shown us to our comfortable room with views over the town and loch. The house is close enough to the town that you can walk there...

My wife and I and another couple spent 3 nights here in late September 2016. The hosts were great, the rooms clean and neat, and the breakfasts were terrific. Jim and Ann were very helpful with recommendations. The guest rooms are all up a flight of stairs with only the dining room on the ground floor. Our room was comfortable...

Comfortable ensuite room - slept well - we booked here for 2 nights as we hoped to climb Ben Nevis on our final day. Friendly and helpful owner. Pre-ordered breakfast (fishcake, smoked salmon, poached egg and tomato) much more substantial than it looked on the menu - breakfast is at 8.30 a.m. Really set us up for the ascent. On...

We had a one night stay after taking the Caledonian sleeper from London. We have visited Fort William before but still had some great advice on arrival here to book the Crannog lunch menu and boat trip. Really great suggestion...thanks. Rooms are comfy and had a much needed good sleep. Breakfasts are pre ordered day before but selection is just...
