Gill's View has a nice view down over the water but is a little tricky to find, up the hill in a quiet neighborhood. Very comfortable and beautifully decorated en suite accommodations with a tasty breakfast.

Our experience at Gill's View was absolutely incredible. Both of our hosts were warm and hospitable. Michelle's full Scottish breakfast was out of this world. Steve even woke up at 5am to give us our packed lunch on our departure day--we had to catch an early ferry. If you are in Fort William stay at Gill's View. I know we... More

After walking the West Highland Way I stayed in this B&B. The hosts are very friendly. The beds are good and breakfast is delicious. There is free wifi you can use. From the B&B you can reach the centre of Fort William very easily.

After few days of intense trekking we spend 2 nights at Gills View B&B. Michelle and her husband Steve made us a warm welcome and a very nice and rich breakfast in the morning. Its just a short walk from the city center in a very nice and friendly neighbour hood. We would definitly come back. Highly recommanded!

We stayed at Gills View for 2 nights during our recent tour of Scotland. Steve and Michelle couldn’t have been more welcoming and had lots of ideas about where to eat out. Our room was comfortable but a little on the small side. Although we were only there for 2 nights, we had luggage for 16 nights so we could... More

My wife, I and two friends stayed at the Gill's View B&B for two nights. It was an excellent spot for conquering Ben Nevis but also for exploring Fort William. Our hosts, Michelle and Steve, were warm, welcoming and really friendly, making us feel really settled and welcome from the off. We were shown to our rooms and left to... More

A lovely B&B, just a short walk from town and with great views. A warm welcome from Michele, nothing too much trouble, and covered cycle storage provided. The room was very clean and comfortable and breakfast was fabulous - the best porridge we have tasted and everything beautifully cooked and presented. Couldn't fault this place and would definitely stay again.

Partner and I stayed here for two nights whilst visiting Fortwilliam. Not too far a walk from the town centre (about 15mins at leisurely stroll). Room lovely and clean with great ensuite facilities. Michelle and Steve where lovely and inviting. Each morning we were presented with a home cooked Scottish fry along with toast, cereal and fruit which set us... More

I cannot rate Michelle and Steve's hospitality highly enough. Wonderful welcome, excellent facilities, close to town centre but not too close. The room was gorgeous with great welcome tray. Everything you would want in a Breakfast, great choice and nothing to much trouble. Steve even gave us a lift to train station. A 5star B&B.

Stayed two nights at Gills View as we planned to take train to Mallaig. Easy distance from the station. It was extremely clean and comfortable and rooms were very nicely presented. Michelle and Steve were very welcoming. Breakfast excellent. Would book again.
