We took a taxi from the train station to the Guest House because we didn't realize how close we were - it was raining, we were tired, we had luggage, we're septuagenarians, the address (Belford Rd.) didn't seem specific enough for us to find the location - it was the right thing for us to do - the taxi driver...

There are numerous B&Bs in the area, and on my Land's End to John O'Groats walk, I did not pre-book any accommodations. I chose the MacLean Guest House purely on first impressions from the outside appearance....and I'm SO glad I did. I... More

Whilst visiting family in Fort William, we stayed at Maclean Guest House. It was a fantastic experience. Mark & Brandi Lee made us feel SO welcome. The accommodation was of the highest standard. The choice of what type of breakfast you want was extensive & the cooked "Full Scottish" is to be recommended. All staff were very helpful & friendly,... More
