We stayed here for a night near the end of the west highland way and it was a comfortable stay in the small cabin which was warm and clean. We had dinner that night in the restaurant as opposed to the bar and we were pleasantly surprised by the high standard of food served to us. The service was also... More

There is a fairly lively ( noisy) bar with pool table where you can eat or a restaurant where we ate . This is a little dated and the decor is a bit tired . The bathroom facilities are a bit rough and ready However the staff are pleasant and very willing , the food is quite good , however... More

We stayed at the cabins in Kinlochleven on Saturday night as a little sleep over before a day of adventures. I've been glamping a few times now, but these have to be the nicest, most practical cabins by far! The campsite is set at the back of the hotel with no cars near, at first I thought this might be...

one night stay while in the area in business and was keen to avoid the usual "tourist trap" hotels in Fort William. So much cheaper that the Ft W hotels that I wasn't sure what to expect but I must say that this was a great find. Absolutely stunning location, friendly, clean and fantastic value. Sits right next to the... More

Super place, run by two very busy and efficient people! Actually all of the staff were fantastic- really friendly and helpful. We stayed in one of the cabins, which were warm, comfortable and spacious. I liked that, assuming you saturated yourself in Smidge, you could sit outside even if it was raining as there's a little porch area with chairs.... More

Stopped in at the MacDonald during a weekend's mountain biking (Glencoe Sat/Fort William Sun), and I'm very pleased to see that nothing had changed since my last visit. Cabins are excellent value for money, breakfast was good and the bar's selection of proper beers was again, most welcome. The view across Loch Leven in the morning from the bothy bar... More

We spent one night in a cabin on our way further North. The cabins are basic but very comfortable, with nice roomy bunk beds and (essential in the West of Scotland) fly screens on the window + a midgie zapper! We enjoyed a tasty meal in the Bothy Bar and a hearty breakfast next morning, with a good choice and... More

This hotel was an excellent place to stay in Kinlochleven on our walk. The proximity to the trail can't be beat. The room was clean and comfortable, and we had a nice dinner at the Bothy Bar. Breakfast was great and all service was excellent. One note for walkers: the hotel is away from the main center of Kinlochleven and... More

Stayed here two nights with a group of friends about 15 of us we stayed in the log cabins. We had an awesome time, in an idyllic location breathtaking views all around, brilliant cabins do as they say basic but very clean. Staff very friendly and can't do enough for you. Breakfast was plentiful and young staff were very good... More
