We stayed here at the end of a day's walking on the West Highland Way. The staff were super friendly and inviting. The rooms were comfortable and very quiet. The food in the restaurant was very good indeed.

I recently stayed here while walking the west highland way and it was fantastic. Stayed in the main house and had dinner at night. The service was great and the food was wonderful also. It is right off the trail from the west highland way makes it easy to get to if you are hiking. The owner and his wife... More

Stayed a weekend in the cabins, basic but warm and value for money. Good camping facilities in a lovely position. The owners and locals were very hospitable to us even when we were rather noisy on the Friday night ( Sorry Mark!) The meals were very good breakfast Was a Lifesaver...All reasonably priced. Cracking ale and local pilsner behind bar... More

I spentt two nights camped out at the facility. Overall thsee two nights in my tent were better than the nights spent at hotel in Fort Williams. I had an espescially wonderfull conversation with an English gentleman with a pony tail (I'm terrible at names) working at the facility. He worked his butt off while entertaining me with his talk...

We had a lovely stay here when walking the West Highland Way. We were camping on site but spent the evening drying off by the welcoming fire and enjoying a few drinks from the bar. One member of staff, Steve, made us feel very at home. Thanks for everything!

We had initially planned to camp here but on arrival it turned out there was a room due to late cancellation. The room was nice and spacious, the bar/dining area was very comfortable, food decent, the quality of customer service was excellent, and they had a nice selection of local beers from the River Leven Brewery. To top it off,... More

Was getting my annual WHW walk out the way early this year and have camped here but never stayed in hotel and I wanted to stay in a cabin so this place is perfect. This place has possibly one of the best views in Scotland in it's garden, so camping, cabins or hotel rooms, this place is an absolute must.... More

Mark & Helen are making some good changes to what is already one of my favourite hotels. We stayed in the cabins and although it was the middle of winter they were still plenty comfortable and warm enough. Some nice and novel options on the menu as well.

Thanks Paul, we appreciate you taking the time to write a review. It means a lot to us. We are gearing up for the new menu in April and it was good to test out some of the dishes as specials. The Rabbit Stew has definitely made it through! See you soon Helen & Mark More
