Walked the west highland way and stayed here, locals very sociable and the food was plentiful just what you need after a 20 mile hike from Bridge of Orkey. Highly recommend. Good breakfast and reasonable price of a pint. Drying room as we'll.

Fantastic, spotless accommodation. Food is varied and tasty not to mention great value. Great sense of community within the bar. Staff are warm and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Highly recommend this wee place!

Stayed here for a mountain bike race based in the town. The room was comfortable, warm and clean, nothing special but all that was needed. The evening meal was ok but the breakfast was really good. The staff were all friendly and helpful. There is also a drying room at the end of the corridor which is useful for anyone... More

Very conveniently located for the WHW and I received a really friendly welcome. The room was comfortable and clean and I had a really good night's sleep with no noise from the downstairs bar. Food in the bar was reasonably priced and there are very nice home made curries on the menu. Breakfast was substantial and very tasty.

Booked to stay elsewhere and got transferred when the B&B was closed over my booking date, so effectively got demoted according to TripAdvisor rankings for Kinlochleven. The room itself was more than adequate, clean, well presented with a queen size bed and en suite shower, offering all that was necessary and reasonable value for money. However, it turned out the...

Friendly greeting upon check-in. Arrived early, and room was already ready. Queen plus single bed, but I was traveling single, so more than I needed. Drying room wasn't working, which would have been nice. The downstairs pub was a bit noisy with an electronic gambling machine being constantly played and pop music blaring from the TV. Had dinner there but... More

The Tailrace Inn is a bit special, a bit different.Do not go here if you want immaculate starched linen napkins, tartan wallpaper and formality. The Tailrace supports its location by providing very well the sort of amenities that the likely clientele will want. That is good wholesome filling food, plenty to drink, a relaxing and informal atmosphere, friendly and helpful... More

We have just used the Trailrace inn as a base for two days while exploring the local area. We received a friendly welcome from staff and locals and fellow tourists, had good food and a very welcome beer at the end of each long day. Our family room had 5 beds but we were not short of space at all.... More

The Tailrace Inn is situated in the very sleepy town of Kinlochleven. It is surrounded by hills and a river. Great for hiking. The Inn itself offered a bar and rooms that were clean. The service, however, was lacking. We are not high maintenance travelers and do not require a lot of attention, but do prefer a smile upon arrival.... More

We wandered into this pub wet, sweaty, knackered and with sore feet after walking from Tyndrum. We needed something to eat as we were very hungry. We ordered 2 pints and a sign on the bar offered 'chips, beans and sausage roll £4.95'. This is not the food I would usually order in a pub but it sounded good fayre... More
