If you want a great B & B to stay at in Fort William, Scotland you can't go passed Braeside House. Run by a lovely couple Paul and Aileen they fall over backwards to make sure you have a great time and are very accommodating. It is up a steep hill about a mile out of the town but there... More

We found Braeside very enjoyable. The location was good for easy access to downtown and the waterfront. The room was very clean, not particularly spacious, but very quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent? We found the shower a bit hard to operate. Overall, a safe choice.

Paul and Aileen were terrific hosts and our room was quiet and cozy. Our party had an early departure and we were graciously accommodated with a very early hot breakfast and a drive to the train station. Now that's service above and beyond!

Aileen and Paul are both very friendly and helpful advising us of good places to eat and the route down to the centre. Our room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and had great views. The breakfast was exceptional, freshly cooked using all locally sourced ingredients. The fresh fruit salad was very welcome. We only stayed one night, after a week... More

This was a very welcoming place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone staying in Fort William especially if they are traveling with a dog. This was our first stay on the Great Glen Way. The rooms were modern and very well kept with everything we needed. Breakfast was served in a lovely dining room with great views... More

We spent a night with two friends at Paul and Aileen's house. They were incredibly friendly and very welcoming. The breakfast was the best we had in Scotland. Altogether, the best B&B we stayed at during our trip. Highly recommended!

We were made to feel very welcome and were given a much appreciated lift to the train station. Very comfy bed and nice room. Amazing views while we had a very nice breakfast. I would recommend it to anyone.

Paul and Aileen were by far the best hosts we have had for our entire 5 week trip through Europe! We were overwhelmed by their kindness and generosity, not to mention the fab breakfast 👌🏼. They took care of our washing and offered to drive us to the train station and to our next accommodation! Couldn't recommend Braeside House enough!!!

We had the double room at the front looking over Loch Linnhe. Paul and Aileen were very welcoming and suggested places to eat at night. The room was very comfortable, clean and had great facilities. There was a very good choice for breakfast which was delicious. Will definitely stay again and would highly recommend.

On an elevated position with wonderful views to the Loch and the Ardgour Hills. Away from the noisy busy main road is only a five minute walk to the town centre and the train station.
