Absolutely drop-dead gorgeous location on banks of Loch Lomond sets the scene for this lovely B&B. Main challenge was walking past it and onto Rowardennan which was the end-point for our WHW section as the B&B looked sooooo tempting. But we enjoyed a restorative meal plus drinks and a dram before a pre-arranged pick-up back to the B&B (with return... More

This was hands down the best B&B we stayed in in three weeks in Scotland. Absolutely the best breakfast, and the warmest hosts. And that is really saying something. Very quiet and beautiful spot. I would highly recommend Anchorage to anyone walking the WHW. Or this would be an ideal spot to get away and enjoy some peace for several... More

Perfect Scottish B&B along the West Highland Way. Very nice, clean, cosy and quiet. Friendly hosts. Our day route ended at Rowardennan Hotel from which we were picked up. The Anchorage Cottage looks fairly new and the rooms are decorated lovely.

We went to Anchorage Cottage while walking the West Highland Way in summer 2015. If you are doing the WHW you should get in contact first with Anchorage Cottage and ask for a pickup at Rowardennan and walk past Achorage Cottage since the way really stretches from there. Behind Anchorage Cottage the ways are leading up very high at steep... More

Day 2 of the West Highland Way typically terminates in Rowardennan and you'd be very lucky to take shelter at Anchorage Cottage, which was our overall favorite stay. One bonus of this accommodation is that it's 3.5 miles from the end of the stage so you can drop your bag at the BnB and walk into Rowardennan fast and light... More

From the perfectly prepared porridge and cooked breakfast to the cosy comfortable beds the accommodation is immaculate and is everything a walker could want at the end of a days walking. No detail is overlooked right down to the toffee filled jar on the lounge table. Right on the WHW and the loch side it couldn't be better placed. Izzi... More

Easily the best overnight stay of our West Highland Way Adventure. Ivor and Izzy provided a warm, comfortable, welcoming and relaxing atmosphere that completely met our needs. Beds were comfortable breakfast was ample, Ivor and Izzy sent us on our way ready for the long day ahead. We will definitely be back.

What a joy to be greeted by Izzi and Ivor after a long day's walking on the West Highland way, and then to discover that our room was so comfortable. Not only was it beautifully decorated but there were also lovely little touches like the slipper socks. The breakfast was excellent and Izzi and Ivor made us feel very welcome... More

My wife and I stopped here whilst doing the WHW. When I say simply the best, I don't mean the best in the west highlands, but simply the best B&B we have ever stayed. Nothing was overlooked, no detail too small and the room was immaculately presented. We were made to feel really welcome and the air was relaxed and... More

Stayed here with izzy and ivan, what a lovely cottage everything beautifully laid out, attention to detail second to none, even the sandwiches we ordered were perfectly made. A must if you appreciate the effort this couple make for their guests. Many thanks to you both.
