This was without doubt one of the cleanest and well kept B&B we had on our walk of the West Highland Way. Although the rooms are very small they are perfectly furnished and are spotlessly clean. The owner was a perfect gentleman and gave a very warm welcome. The breakfast was good and the service perfect. A great place to... More

We made sure to arrive after 4pm,and we waited ,unacknowledged,as host took some time to check earlier guests in. And,we were polite when it was our turn to be "welcomed" but we sure didn't get the warm greeting that other reviewers received! On the contrary,this was the least friendly,and sparsest accommodation of our 7 days on the West Highland Way.... More

After suffering the rather cynical service of some hotels on the WHW it was a huge pleasure to be warmly greeted on early arrival by the manager of the Dalkell Cottage Guest House in Tyndrum. It seems she really enjoys her job - i.e. making life pleasant for her visitors, rather than treating them like numbers on a bottom line.... More

The welcome at Dalkell Cottages was friendly and helpful. The accommodation is convenient enough for a walk into the heart of Tyndrum for drinks/dinner. The establishment is somewhat cramped and the breakfast functional.

As per previous posts we found this place to be somewhat lacking. Sleep quality was very poor with a lumpy hard mattress and breakfast was a big disappointment especially if you go with the continental option. My wife received 2 croissants and 3 bits of prepacked cheese. We pre ordered the night before as instructed and I got 1 sausage... More

My friend and I had a twin room so small that we had to take turns moving around the room. There was a shower, but no toilet (the toilet was way down the hall). The tiny shower was more like a closet at the foot of one of the beds. Not only was the room uncomfortable, but the host was... More

We were met by Chris who is very friendly and helpful. As there were 8 of us, 4 were in the cottage and we also had 2 x twins, en suite. The cottage was lovely, perfect for all 8 of us to have beer and chat. The twin en suites tho' were a bit disappointing, really small and the en... More

Unbelievable! The manager/owner resembles Colonel Sir Harold Wilberforce Clifton with the manners and rules of a by gone colonial era. The front door is locked, (not a good start). After ringing two bells the manager arrived. We traipsed around to the back yard and ordered to remove out boots. This was outside, no seating provided, Escorted to the drying room... More

Great location, tidy room with huge bed, even if the bathroom is a bit small. Comfortable lounge room to use and lovely breakfast. Suggested some beautiful places for us to visit the following day. More expensive than other places we stayed at, but I guess that was the popular location. Biggest challenge is the parking at the front and having... More
