Buccleuch Guest House

Lovely building with well decorated rooms. The service from Lorna was fantastic, she was very welcoming, happy to help with any requests and was full of suggestions for things to do in the local area. Breakfast was great, there wasa huge selection laid out on the breakfast table and a good cooked breakfast available too. The two dissapointing points for me were; poor wifi signal throughout and the room had a very small window with no view, I noticed some at the front of the house had large windows with views of the loch. It's definitely worth asking for one of these (surprisingly they're all the same price!

Room Tip: Ask for one at the front of the house with views!

The rooms are warm and clean with what my partner calls that wee extra touch. The bed exceptionally comfortable. The breakfast is outstanding and you can tell the owners take pride in their work. Just along the road is the Travelodge; but there there is no character or breakfast and you do not get the personal standard of service that you get at Buccleuch for very little extra expense. Well worth the money.

Fort William, in of itself, is simply terrific. Arriving at this guesthouse just made us SMILE! The owners are just the nicest couple you ever met. We lost our power converter and within five minutes there were two converters for us to chose from while we were there! Suggested daytrips kept us from fumbling through leaflets trying to decide what was the best to do.
The room was spacious and well lit (hooray) clean and comfy.
The view from breakfast room was soothing and lovely; we watched weather change up and down the loch; it was spellbinding.
Breakfast was very good, and I don't believe the owners could have been any kinder.
Loved Buccleuch!!!

Buccleuch Guest House is lovely, it is very comfortable with well equipped guest rooms we stayed in room 2 which had lovely views across Loch Linnhe to the snow capped hills beyond. It's a very short walk into the town. For breakfast there was an array of cereal, fruit, yogharts etc and of course a choice of cooked which was delicious. The hosts were very friendly and I would not hesitate to recommend this to family and friends and hope to return in the future.

The Buccleuch Guest House was older but very clean and the breakfast was good and a typical Scottish breakfast. We loved the view which looked over Loch Linnhe. The proprietor was very nice and he even drew us a map so that we wouldn't miss anything while we were there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks over Loch Linnhe.

From the moment we stepped into this lovely b&b we knew we had chosen well. After pressing the bell upon entry, Lorna greeted us & showed us our room and where we'd be eating in the morning. We stayed in room 2 which was on the first floor & had great views over the loch. The room was very spacious & well presented. It had a nicely appointed en-suite & a good pressured shower. We made it downstairs for the earlier breakfast & there was a side table set-up with a great selection of muffins, cereal, fruit & other goodies. We both ordered the cooked breakfast which was very tasty & filling. All in all a great stay (except for the weather) & would recommend to anyone staying in Fort William.

Room Tip: Ask for room with a loch view, you won't be disappointed

We had a beautiful room on the second floor with a view of Loch Linnhe. The bed was very comfortable and the room was large and spotless. We enjoyed meeting other guests in the common room on the main level. Lorna and Stewart are excellent hosts - very friendly and helpful. We did not have a car so Stewart offered to drive us to the train station - much appreciated!
