Excellent accommodation. Colin and Scott were friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble- everything was done for the comfort and ease of the guests. The bedrooms with were delightful and had everything we needed to relax after our first day's walking- including a lovely, hot powerful shower! Breakfast was a treat and set us up for next leg of...

This was my first resting place on the WHW. A huge thank you to Colin and Scott for making me feel SO comfortable and welcome. I agree with previous posts- 1 night was not long enough. The room and breakfast were perfect but the company, humour and relaxed atmosphere made this a 'stand out' place to stay.

We stayed overnight in this delightful B&B on the first leg of our WHW adventure from Milngavie. The hosts were charming, the welcome genuine, the breakfast delicious (I agree with other comments regarding the yummy black pudding plus the porridge was too!), the room was comfortable and clean. The overall feel of the place is that the owners love what... More

All the 5-star reviews are fully justified. Braeside has everything you could want from a classic Scottish B & B - a warm welcome, relaxing and peaceful. Everything is immaculate and well run. The breakfast is first class, with excellent hot and cold produce. The Stornoway Black Pudding is worth the visit alone - Colin could even translate it into... More

Yes, it is great, comfortable, friendly and everyone is chatty. All renovated in past few years. Their Black Pudding was one of the best I have had for breakfast, but the only small criticism is that my husbands sausages, eggs and bacon were sitting in too much fat. Couldn't hear noise from any other rooms and the bed was very... More

We stayed for 1 night only since we were walking the West Highland Way. First day of walking let us arrive at Braeside little tired, not to say exhausted, so we highly appreciated the warm Welcome and a lovely room and beautiful bathroom with hot shower....!

When you read all the excellent reviews of Braeside on this site, you run out of new words to describe its attraction. (It has all been said already). Colin and Scott are such wonderful hosts, and besides all the fantastic tea and chat on arrival and excellent breakfasts there are little acts of kindness that might go unnoticed (boots) -... More

I was impressed to be offered a pot of tea (or coffee) the minute we walked in the door. Just what I needed after walking all day on the West Highland Way. Great selection of fresh berries for breakfast. Excellent pub just across the road for dinner.

We stayed for one night while walking the West Highland Way. Boy, I was glad to see a very comfortable and homey place to stay. We were welcomed with a nice pot of tea and cookies and regaled with a lot of funny anecdotes from our hosts. We stayed in a cabin right next to the main building and our... More

Friendly welcome from our hosts with a pot of tea and a chat after our first day's walk of the West Highland Way. Very tasteful and comfortable accommodation, could not fault it. Served a very fine fruit salad for breakfast (as well as the traditional Scottish breakfast, made to order).
