Upon arrival Glenys will put on the kettle and serve tea and biscuits in the breakfast room that overlooks the canal with a stunning view of Ben Nevis! What a pleasant surprise. Although there is no TV in the guest rooms we did have a guest lounge with a TV and books. Very clean room and very good breakfast. The... More

We loved our stay at Glenshian! Glenys greeted us on arrival with some afternoon tea served in the dining room overlooking the canal. The views were breathtaking. It did not escape my 11 yr old's notice that Glenshian has a puppy in residence! My son played with cheeky Bramble out on the back lawn for quite some time. Bramble was... More

We stated at Glenshian Guesthouse for one night on our way to Isle of Skye. Iain and Glenys were superb hosts. We were welcomed with tea and biscuits upon our arrival; we found our room to be very comfortable and clean. The breakfast nook area was amazing and had a great view of the Caledonian Canal and of Ben Nevis.... More

We have stayed at Glenshian many times now and would not dream of staying anywhere else when in the Fort William area. The owners, Glenys and Iain are lovely people, very friendly and helpful and Glenshian is spotlessly clean and well appointed. You are made so welcome everytime you go and stay with them. The breakfast is superb and very... More

We recently spent a night at Glenshian Guesthouse during a road trip around the Scottish Highlands. The guesthouse is very well-located, just three of four miles from Fort William itself, right by Neptune's Staircase. The rooms are decently apportioned and very clean, with en suite facilities. The locally-made toiletries were a bonus, as was the welcome tea/coffee and cake. The... More

Spent a lovely night here. Slept well in beautiful surroundings and had breakfast in the sun lounge facing Ben Nevis. Had a filling breakfast and watched the ducks and the ducklings on the lawn of the immaculate garden. The room was spacious and well appointed, and bed very comfortable. Excellent hosts. Will definitely be back.
