Everything about the b&b was extremely well organised and we recieved the perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness. I couldn't have enjoyed the stay more. It was gay-friendly and perfect.

We spent two nights in this B&B and we have a very positive experience. The room was good, the hosts very friendly and helpful. It's very close to the centre of Fort William and they drop your bags off at the station for free. Highly recommended.

Unfortunately, Aileen, the hostess, had no rooms, but invited us in and called Gowan Brae to see if they had space. She then sent us down the road to......

The rooms were clean, I had a room with no ensuite but it was not far away and it was not a shared bathroom. Great views from my room and very clean. Only 5 mins to town which was very handy. Great breakfast and the owners were lovely. Offered to wash our clothes and dry, it came in very handy....
