Great place. Nice view of the loch. Hostess was pleasant and very accommodating. We slept well and enjoyed a great Scottish breakfast. If you're looking for low-key, this place is great! On a side note, the carpeting is also plaid!!!

Stayed for 2 nights - perfect to explore the surrounding area. Warm welcome from the owners - they give me great advice on what to see and were extremely helpful in printing out ferry times and such for my trips. Good location - nice lochside setting which looks stunning on a sunny day. Room was extremely clean and comfortable, with... More

Enjoyed the pretty view from our room. The bathroom wasn't actually en suite, but just next door, and was totally private. Very pretty decor, and a lovely breakfast room with a delicious breakfast. Sorry that I never asked what the name Alt-an means. Perhaps Margaret will post an answer. Very much enjoyed our stay - the night following our day... More

Hi CharlyT. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a this review. Alt-An is Gaelic for "House beside a stream". Unfortunately when you visited i I don't think there was any water in the stream due to the glorious hot weather we had in July with very little rain!!. Hope you are both keeping well.

The room was really nice. Unfortuantely our bathroom was not ensuite, however it was a really beautiful bathroom, really big and modern. For breakfast, we could choose between several options (Scottish breakfast or scrambled eggs with salmon were our choices) It was very lovely presented. The location is not that perfect if you would like to go by foot to... More

We were three very damp motor bikers who arrived for a two night stay in two rooms. On seeing the entrance we realized we needed to wipe our feet and Margarete guided us to her airing cupboard so we could dry our very damp clothing. Rooms are very clean and have tea and coffee making facilities along with a small... More

Nice b&b 2 mn drive from fort william. Double room with view on the loch. Clean, comfy bed and has eveything you need. Yes the bathroom ( shower and loo are in two seperate cabinets) is small but big enough. Breakfast is nice and a lot of choice (full scottish, smoke salmon omelette, cereals and fresh fruit...)

Don't stay here if you are likely to check in late. We were travelling all day from North Devon and got caught up in traffic jams along the M5/M6. When we rang at 8pm (an hour before we were due to check in) to say we wouldn't be there until midnight they refused to have us. This was a shame... More
