We ended our holiday at this place and I'm glad we chose it. Beautiful home and hosts were super. Food was excellent and Kirstie took time to go that extra mile. Rooms are clean and beds offer a comfortable night's sleep. Would love to visit again

Wow what a pleasurable experience it was to stay at this B and B! On arrival Kirstie was there to greet us and for the first time in our B and B experience insisted on helping us to carry our bags to our room.
In addition to excellent food and comfortable accommodation Kirstie went one step further -
homemade shortbread and fresh milk in a flask in the bedroom - spotless white linen in the dining room and quality Highland toiletries in the bathroom.
We loved the view of Loch Linnhe from our bedroom window - see photo.
Our main reason for wanting to stay in the Fort William area was to take a journey on the 'Jacobite Steam Train ' from Fort William to Mallaig - voted by Wanderlust as the greatest rail journey in the world - The Glenfinnan viaduct featured in the Harry Potter film series.
Bearing in mind that Fort William is full of 'your average hotels ' we were lucky to find them all full and to come across this little gem at the side of Loch Linnhe.
We can recommend Cuilcheanna House without reservation.

Room Tip: We liked room Islay overlooking the loch

A traditional Highland house, landladies Kirsty and Mary offer warm hospitality in their 300 year historic home, just off the A82 near Fort William in a lovely quiet location on the shores of Loch Linnhe with fabulous views of mountains, water, sky and nearby woods: tastefully modernised, bright and very clean rooms, comfy beds. Your sleep is induced by sounds of the sea, birds and trees, breakfast is freshly cooked to order and delicious.

I have been back twice!

This lovely little gem is set in the most idyllic spot about 20 mins outside Fort William. We were so lucky with the weather, but no matter what the weather is doing the views are breathtaking.
The welcome was warm and friendly, the room spotless and comfortable, only over shadowed by that view. Hubby would have liked a telly but I'm not sure why? and I didn't miss it one bit. The breakfast kept us going all day, and nothing was to much trouble. There are lovely little walks on the shore line and up into the hills.
It was a 20min drive into Fort William and about the same back to Glen Coe. As my title states perfect in every way.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this review. I am delighted that you were happy with your stay, and the weather also co-operated too!

Just to answer your comment about the TV - we have do a 'peace and quiet' policy so do not have TVs in the rooms, however there is one available in the guest sitting room that your husband was more than welcome to use!

Hopefully we will welcome you back to Cuilcheanna House in the future.

We spent a lovely four nights. The location is stunning and the welcome was excellent. Kirsty and her mum were so obliging and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was a real treat and the choice was so wide. We didn't need to find any lunch. The rooms were well appointed and scrupulously clean. The beds were far better than ours at home.Our little canine friend was welcomed and well catered for too. If we are in the area again i would have no hesitation in staying again -perhaps longer next time. Even the weather was unseasonably co-operative. If all b and b's were of this standard i'd be very happy.

Delightful b&b in a lovely tranquil setting. Very friendly owners. Nice touches such as homemade shortbread biscuits in the rooms. Lovely breakfast and lounge rooms. Really very hard to top as a b&b. My only gripe, as a dog owner, would be that there is no loch view room that allows dogs.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review for us. It is always a pleasure to welcome new visitors into our home. I completely appreciate your comment about the loch view rooms not welcoming dogs however it is just the way that things worked out due to redecorating in the past. Although we currently have no plans to change this at the moment we will make a note of your comments for future consideration. We hope to welcome you back to Cuilcheanna House in the future.
