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... More

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... More

Thank you for a lovely stay! This is a brilliant Bnb. I've stayed at many in Fort William over the years and always thought, "this is okay but I'll try somewhere different next time" but thankfully the search is now over and Gowan Brae will now be my "go to" accommodation in Fort William. The rooms are very comfortable and... More
