“Great location, great facility, great hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2011

From the time we arrived, with getting help with our bags, to the time we left, help with our bags again, we knew we had choosen the right place to stay. We had a super breakfast and took full advantage of the knowledge of Alistar and Louise regarding the surrounding area, shops and golfing. My boys appreciated the free wifi and separate beds! I would recommend Camus House because even though it was hard to find on the internet it has everything I look for in a B&B and a great view as well.

Room Tip: Family suite is a good deal if traveling with children.

My partner and I first stayed at Camus house last year, for just one night, while touring the Highlands. We were so impressed and enjoyed our stay so much that this year we decided to stay there for our Honeymoon. And once again, we came away having enjoyed every aspect of our stay. We cannot recommend it enough.
Ideally situated between Glencoe and Fort William in a beautiful loch side location the house is an elegant Victorian villa with spacious and comfortable rooms with stunning views. The food is fantastic and the rates are very reasonable - far cheaper in fact that many of the other hotels and B&Bs in the area that are no where as good. What's more, the owners Alistair and Louise are the perfect hosts. Their kind and friendly hospitality really made our stay and we were very sorry to leave at the end of our holiday.
Read the other reviews on this site and you'll see that they all say the same thing. Everyone gives Camus House 5 stars and it is well deserved.

The location and house are stunning; it is easy to find. The owners, Alastair and Louise, couldn't be nicer, and they work their socks off for their guests. No one tries harder! Breakfasts are a treat. My only disappointment - a room with a not-so-nice view.

Room Tip: Get a room at the front, overlooking the loch

Although we arrived at Camus house quite late in the evening, we were greeted outside by alistair, who offered to help us in with bags etc, not something we have come across often! We had our dad with us, who is partially disabled, and they couldnt do enough to help make his overnight stay comfortable. The hotel is clean, comfortable, in a wonderful location overlooking the loch. The breakfast is again lovely, and although we also set off earlier in the morning that breakfast is usually served, this wasnt a problem. Will stay there again next year on return visit to scotland.

Room Tip: Room with lochside view are fantastic.

Camus House is ideally situated within reach of Glen Coe, Mallaig and the road to the Isles.

The house itself was lovely - spacious and welcoming with a gorgeous lobby! It overlooks Loch Linnhe and it was a treat to eat their beautifully cooked breakfasts overlooking the loch and watching the gannets diving for their breakfast! Red squirrels were doing acrobatics on their bird table and, apparently, the lady next door frequently feeds the pine martens!

Louise and Alistair were a lovely couple - warm, charming and couldn't do enough to make our stay feel special. They were a fount of local knowledge and lots of information with ideas for walks, places to visit , train timetables etc. Excellent hosts!

The road runs between the house and the loch but it wasn't busy or noisy and the view more than made up for it. Nearby is the Onich House hotel which serves lovely meals, both in the pub and the restaurant. It is right on the lochside and what a perfect way to end your day - having a drink on the edge of the loch watching the light & shadows over the nearby mountains (munros?), in a beautiful garden, with your B&B only a stroll away.

All in all this was the best B&B I have ever stayed in - anywhere! We're going to Scotland again this year but want to get to Skye this time. Otherwise I'd head straight for Camus House and do all the walks I never got time to do the first time!

Wholeheartedly recommended!
