We arrived a little early for the book in time (four of us for a 2 night stay ) we were greeted (by name) by Mieke in their beautiful gardens who treated us like old friends and took us to our rooms . The rooms were excellent, spotlessly... More

We stayed here for two nights recently- we booked specifically because of the location being so close to Ben Nevis which we had traveled up to climb, and were not anticipating much from this place- so we were in for a big surprise- from the moment we entered- we were greeted by the dutch owner- who immediately knew our names...

We booked for two nights and were delighted with the accommodation. Our twin room was very clean and comfortable. Mieke made us feel very welcome, and the breakfast menu has plenty of options to choose from. The walk into town takes a little over half an hour. The local pub “The Lochy” is a bit nearer, we would recommend this... More

We stayed for four nights and they couldn't have been better. The location was perfect, the bedroom and bathroom were spotless and breakfast was simply marvelous. Meike made us feel at home and although we didn't see much of Bert, the little we did meet him he was so helpful. A big plus is that the property has a large... More

We stayed at the Lochan Cottage Guest House for 2 nights and it was great. The house itself is beautiful, our room was comfortable and well equipped, the hosts were very welcoming, and the breakfast was wonderful. The time restrictions were a little odd, check-in was 4pm-7pm, breakfast at 8am or 8:30am (had to pre-ordered by 8pm the day before)... More

We stayed here for two nights, at the mercy of the usual Fort William weather. The Guest House is immaculate, in beautiful gardens, and the welcome seemed very friendly. The breakfast was beautifully cooked and presented in a very pleasant conservatory, but it's only a pre-booked half hour window, and a foreign couple got yelled at for being a few... More
