What can one say - Morag is far and away the nicest and most accomodating b&b owner I have had the privilege to meet in my hiking experience. Our room was fantastic, huge in b&b standards, very comfortable with all the facilities you could need plus nice touches (sweets, cookies) and more. Breakfast was excellent and Morag was more then...

Morag is a very experienced host and has it all covered! On arrival she explains how everything works and keeps it nice and simple. She rearranged for our bags to be collected by ginger routes rather than having to walk to the public car park as previously arranged which was a great help. Plenty of cookies and tea and coffee...

Welcomed by a friendly chap (Morag's other half?), who told us all about what to expect on day 1 of the walk and where in town to get a meal - very informative. The room was immaculate and spacious (we had the double with the 'Disney Kingdom'). Tea and coffee making facilities also included cookies and a stash of peanuts... More

Great place to use before starting the West highland way. Conveniently located a short walk away from Milngavie train station, 2x large supermarkets, places to eat and the start of the West highland way. Our room was very spacious, staff were very friendly and every morning we were given a large choice of hot / cold breakfast options.

Friendly owners with nice tips, nice and tasty breakfast, cosy environment, spacious room with a good shower. Everything was clean and comfortable. The beds were good and the surrounding was quiet so we slept well.

This was a great place to stop before heading out on the West Highland Way. Good location. Clean room. Big bathroom (we had the room in the basement that sleeps 4). Breakfast was great. The only complaint is that we didn't get change when we paid. £7 is a pretty big tip without asking!

We are writing this review after completing the West Highland Way and staying at 7 different properties over 8 days, all similarly priced and reviewed. We wanted to make sure we had perspective before writing this review in case our expectations were out of line. This was the most dismal stop on our West Highland Way Trek. Compared to all... More

Very large basic rooms, with lovely homely touches such as ample tea, coffee, biscuits and nuts. beds were really clean and comfortable and the area was quiet to allow for a good nights sleep. the breakfast the next day was amazing, fantastic selection from...

Best Foot Forward is an excellent place to stay as you begin your journey on the West Highland Way. We had a comfortable room, excellent and filling breakfast and a VERY short walk to the beginning of the trail. Highly recommend BFF.

This is the second time I've stayed with Morag - both times it was the starting point for walking the West Highland Way. I can't praise Morag highly enough. This year I turned 60, Morag gave me a card for my birthday, a welcoming drink and at breakfast sang Happy Birthday while bringing out my food with candles in the... More
