“Home Away From Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We spent two nights here while walking the West Highland Way. Their taxi service came in very handy and picked us up in Rowardennan for the second night at their B&B then delivered us back to our trail and starting point the next morning. The room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was very good and served family style at a large table in the dining room, where we met other walkers. We had use of the kitchen for coffee.

Stayed September 2012, traveled as a couple

We arrived early and nobody at home but friendly staff from on site taxi business let us in to leave bags until Adele arrived. Welcomed with tea and biscuits. Room decor old fashioned but comfortable - no toiletries provided but we had our own anyway. Positioned well in town square. Good breakfast and staff very cheerful. Had use of kitchen if needed. No staff live on premises.

Room Tip: Room very spacious ground floor.

After walking from Milngavie we arrived to a smashing welcome from Adelle. Our rooms were clean and comfy with great ensuite shower facilities. We were able to use the kitchen for tea and the fridge for our drinks to cool. The lounge had comfy sofas and tv. Clachan pub right next door with fab grub at reasonable prices. Had a great nights sleep. Fabulous brekkie cooked by Adelle next morning set us up for the days walk to Rowardennan.

Nice welcome with a cup of tea and biccies. Good position with it being next door to Clachan pub where we had a decent meal £10 and a couple of nice St andrews beers. The supermarket is just across the road for supplies for next day.
The room was fine but a bit dated, We did have a problem with the shower going from cold to very hot on its own, not the best after a 12 mile walk, perhaps Adele could explain how to get it to work better. No TV/ tea or coffee in the room but guests do have the use of the kitchen with tea and coffee available and front room with TV and internet.
Breakfast was good and once again friendly service. Thanks Adele hope you can sort the shower out.

After a long slog from Milngavie what a welcome sight Hillview B&B was.
Set right next door to the Clachan (oldest pub in Scotland) it is ideally situated.
Adele gave us a cheery greet and made us a fantastic cuppa and biccies (Wagon Wheels!!! Not had them in ages!)
We were given the use of the tumble dryer which was a godsend.
The room was modest, but comfy enough (cracking sleep on a comfy bed) which is just what you want after a days walking. Although there was no tea and coffee in the room, unrestricted access to the kitchen was allowed, as well as the living room (giving it a really relaxing home from home atmosphere)
The breakfast was awsome, especially the black pudding (from Stornaway!!!) which set us up nicely for the next stage.
All in all a very comfortable, enjoyable stay, made to feel very welcome indeed. Will be recommending Hillview to my friends and colleagues.
Thanks again Adele, for your warmth and hospitality.

Another great stay at Hillview. Ideal location in centre of village next to the Clachan Inn. Good choice for ending the first day of the West Highland Way. A warm friendly welcome from Adele and a hearty breakfast. Free WiFi a bonus. Also dog friendly if you have a four legged friend.

Stayed here as our first port of call on the West Highland Way and found it to be the poorest of our accomodations. The location was good - right next door to the Clachan - and surprisingly quiet, but the accomodation itself was in need of some care and attention. The rooms were old fashioned and outdated, and our bathroom had a large chip and big dirty cracks on the sink which looked like they'd been there for some time. The shower also leaked a little from the corner.

Positives were that the kitchen was available for tea and coffee making at any time, and there was a lounge area available for guests. The welcome was friendly.

Negatives included the musty smell of the place and the cheap provisions for breakfast - it would be good to see a little more spent on ensuring that a decent breakfast is provided.
