We arrived by motorbike, rather earlier than arranged but our landlady Margaret took us in and showed us our room and the breakfast area. And what a breakfast it turned out to be. A vast quantity and variety of fresh fruit as well as cereals and a great cooked breakfast. The landlord, whose name escapes me, asked if I wanted... More

That was a last moment booking via http://www.visitscotland.com/accommodation/ but we couldn't have booked a better place to spend our night in Fort William. Margaret welcomed us very warmly and showed us a nice twin room and a large bathroom at the next door. The room was very clean, with TV, tea kettle, tea, milk and biscuits. Beds comfortable. We could... More

Where to start?! This wonderful B&B is run by a lovely woman (I wish I caught her name) who really made our stay in Fort William rather special. Reasonably priced with stunning views of Loch Linnhe and the mountains beyond! The bedroom was modern, immaculate and extremely comfortable. And it was only a quick drive or walk into town. Highly...

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!!!

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

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

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.
