LIz, was a great host. She had everything organised for us. Very passionate and lovely host. She took care of our needs and breakfast as we wanted. She was very patience with my two kids as well. My family really liked it. Thanks Liz.

We weren't coming (or going) along the West Highlands Way but everyone else staying the night was. I think we got the last room in town and it was very comfortable. We didn't have en-suite but the bathroom next door was for our personal use - the three German guys next door did have one but decided to use our... More

Welcomed by freshly baked goods into the owners home was a treat. Home made jam on home made scones were welcome after completing conic hill. Hot tub on the decking watching the sunset. Amazing local eateries near by. We stayed in the 3 bed annex which was lovely, clean and comfortable.

great stay on our WHW walking. Miss Elizabeth was very friendly, welcomed us with afternoon tea and home made cakes. The typical scottish breakfast in the morning was very tastefull and served in the dining room with beautiful view of the Loch Lomond.

Twin room was cozy with ensuite facility, & modern & clean. Great selection of choice for breakfast including Greek yogurt with stewed apples & cinnamon with delicious fresh fruit & pancakes with...

We had a great stay Bay Cottage. The owner was very helpful when we were struggling to find place to stay for our further travels in Scotland. We were in the family room which was really nice and big. I'd definitely recommend this for a nice relaxing stay in Balmaha.

A lovely warm welcome from Liz when we arrived. We did arrive early, but it wasn't a problem. The only place on all the West Highland Walk way that offered us tea and cakes at 16:00. It was so lovely and getting to know the other walkers too. The accommodation was lovely, had everything that you wish for and very... More

Our room was a traditional comfortable double and although not en-suite we had our own large private bathroom. The B&B was warm , cosy clean and very comfortable. We had... More

Stayed in the studio room with two friends as our first stop on the West Highland Way. Liz was the perfect host, laying on a lovely afternoon tea and cakes on our arrival. The room was perfect, very generous in size and 3 very comfy single beds. The hot tub was amazing, just what we needed after our 20 mile... More
