The room was very clean, comfortable, and modern. The breakfast presents a vast choice of goodies (English, Scottish and continental) and Michael cooks it on the spot. We were made to feel welcome and given useful advice on things to do and see. We recommend staying for several days to choose the best conditions to climb Ben Nevis (if you... More

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your long weekend here in the Highlands and also that we provided a good place for your stay. You are quite right about recommending several days for a stay to climb Ben Nevis as it does give you a chance to pick the best day for weather. You at least want to go... More

We made a last minute booking based on weather conditions for Ben Nevis. The proprietor, Michael, couldn't have been any more accommodating to me and my 14 year old son. On arrival he had tea and biscuits ready in a flash and provided great local advice, especially for evening meals. The views from the dining room are spectacular looking up... More

I travel to this area with work a few times a year and have always struggled to find "nice" accommodation - in Fort William its self all of the big hotels seem to be set up for coach tours and tourists in general. This B&B is a relatively modern bungalow and is, somewhat unusually, run by the man of the... More

Well best night sleep we had during our week of b&bs in Scotland. Lovely bed, v welcoming host and the place was spotless. We ordered our breakfast and had a lovely selection of fruit available as well. Good recommendations about local cuisine, fuel prices and activities in the area. V reasonably priced and would def recommend!

Just as the title: this B&B has a nice owner, they keep the rooms very clean and they were just renovated. Actually the B&B is kind of new. The breakfast was traditional and you get to choose what you want to eat and you can see Ben Navis from the dinning room. :) Different from other B&B's: you have a... More

Many thanks to Michael. We had a one night stay at Torlundy and everything was just perfect. Coffee and cakes on arrival, small chat and debate and putting the world to rights before being given restaurant advice which we took Michael up on. Even getting a voucher for money off our meal.
