Dinner and breakfast were both excellent. The bedroom was clean and comfortable; the decor was very welcoming with teddies and cushions! A towel in the bathroom was even wrapped round a thistle! Overall, to be recommended.

Stayed for a weekend over valentines day, and ate a meal in the restaurant downstairs on valentines day itself. When we arrived we were given a very friendly welcome and invited down to the lounge for coffee which was served with some cake and even a glass of sherry, a nice touch. The room was small but very clean and... More

Great place to stay, very cosy indeed with a comfortable open plan design. Perfectly situated for trips to mountain regions and Lochs. There was a friendly welcome from the cottage owner (Robert) although as we were out walking everday, we didn't get chance to visit the restaurant next door... maybe next time!

Having recently completed a touring holiday in Scotland we wish we had known about the Smiddy before we looked, rather than the 2 nights our party of 4 would have been happy to stay a week, customer service was exceptional and the the food to die for . The reception from Robert and the staff was without doubt the best... More

If you are travelling in and around the West Highland area, Smiddy House is an absolute must. We were travelling with our 12 year old daughter and our dog. We were all made so welcome, Oscar even enjoyed a sausage for his breakfast! The menu/food is to die for, and although our daughter is more of a plain eater Robert... More

We had been to The Smiddy once before, on Valentines Day This year. To me it's simply magical! From the moment you walk in you are made to feel special. The proprietors have the ambience and charm just right. On both occasions the food was exquisite, and the whole experience simply perfect.,

My husband and I will never stay anywhere else but with Glen and Robert when traveling to the Ft,William/Highlands area.The cuisine was reminiscent of the Inn at Little Washington. Robert was so warm but also so much fun and during our stay, started a rumor that we had bought Smiddy House/Russel's Restaurant including Glen! There was a family staying for... More

The food was simply fantastic! Best scallops and black pudding starter I've ever tasted, perfection. Thank you for a wonderful meal, great local walk recommendations too. We came on a recommendation from friends and will be highly recommending to others. Thanks again!

Proprietors Glen and Robert have perfected the recipe for a great restaurant at Russell's, Smiddy House, Spean Bridge. The best in the area by far. Their warm hospitality is matched by a wonderful choice of delicious dishes and wines, definitely not to be missed on any visit to this beautiful area of The Highlands.

I would recommend this establishment to everyone. In late March I was travelling from Inverness to Glasgow. The weather conditions were so bad I had to leave the A9 and was heading in the direction of Fort William I stopped a few times trying to get a bed for the night but couldn't get in anywhere. I then found Smiddy... More
