We stayed in a microlodge. Facilities for all campers/lodges were excellent. Pub, chip shop and co-op (open late), within 3 minutes walk. Very pretty by the river, and a pretty little village. All in all a good choice!

All amenities are on hand, Co-op, Pub, Bank and Post-Office all 2mins walk into the village. Kinlochleven also has the Ice Factor where you can get lessons on rock climbing/ice climbing and aerial assault course. I was touring... More

Very nice hostel, with camping place and microlodges. Good kitchen zone. 2 minutes walk to the city centre, 5 minutes to the touristic information zone and post-office. Free wi-fi. Very close from West Highland Way. Friendly staff.

Perfect place to stay on the West Highland Way, from the window you can see the river, shop and restaurants are not far in such a small town, WIFI worked, very quiet, the only thing I didn't like was the sleeping bad you had to use.

Blackwater Hostel is tucked away by the river yet only a few minutes walk to the center of the village. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Facilities were excellent and I would happily stay here again.

I stayed at the micro lodges and have already booked to return. Site is ideally located for bus service to Fort William or Glencoe with connecting bus to Glasgow/Edinburgh or further north. Site is... More
