“Couldn't ask for better”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

lovely setting, hearty welcome, comfortable room and massive breakfast......every part of our experience at Rustic View was simply perfect. The B and B is a nice distance outside of Fort William, in a quiet residential area, with everything you could want on the doorstep and a nice and easy walk away from the town centre. Our room was a good size, comfy bed, flat screen tv and had a large en-suite. What a breakfast......top quality food. Finally, our hostess, Jackie, was only lovely. We were made feel at home and she couldn't have been more helpful. Would recommend to anyone 100% and we hope to return someday.

Nice location and views; you can see the top of Ben Nevis from the bedroom (on a clear day). The host is very friendly, welcoming and helpful. One point is that a good class B&B would never use that awful square sausage, cheapest of the cheap - constructive criticism.

Hostess Jackie has great personality, room was fantastic with Ben Nevis view and breakfast was delicious. Excellent value for money. What more could you expect? Things we explored in / nearby Fort William: Jacobite Steam Train trip to Mallaig with really nice views, Steall Waterfall, and drive to Skye via Eilean Donan Castle. Restaurant tip to mention: Ben Nevis Inn.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have great view for Ben Nevis.

Hostess is quite charming. Food was fantastic. Great location. And the rooms? Spotless, comfortable, and all-but perfect!

Room Tip: There are only a few rooms so book early. Definitely worth it!

We spent three days in Rustic View, an absolutely loveley b and b in Fort William. Jackie, our hostess, couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. From the moment we arrived, it was like coming home.The room was very clean and spacious, with a modern bathroom and even a little lounge area! Jackie made us every morning a wonderful breakfast (choice between full scottish breakfast, continental or a fruit platter) and she was always ready to provide us with assistance or ideas to spent the day. We were sorry to leave after three days, cause there were still a lot of things in the area that we really wanted to see. Fort William and Rustic View stole our hearts. If you're planning a trip in the area, I can fully recommend this b and b to you!

Stayed in Rustic View Bed & Breakfast at the end of June 2012 and would thoroughly recommend a stay to anyone. We stayed in the twin room with ensuite and have to say this room was comfortable, clean and cosy with a capital C!!! Facilities are first class. Have to say Jackie is the hostess with the mostess and made Rustic View feel like a home from home. There are lots to do in the local area and during our stay we had a train ride to Mallig (stunning views and would recommend this trip to anyone) and also a cable ride up Ben Nevis. The food at Rustic View was amazing and such a variety!!! Would definitely stay here again!! Jackie thanks for making us feel so welcome and a part of the Rustic View Family!!!

I had a great time at the Rustic View B&B Lochyside

Jackie was very helpful in every way even helped me decide what I was going to do with my 2 days there.

A must do at the Rustic View is have the Kipper for breakfast, this Kipper has changed my favorite breakfast forever, Seriously try the Kipper it is sourced and smoked locally.

Ben Nevis and Glen Nevis on the right day this is wonderful.
A great Central point for either heading north for the day towards Mallaig or heading west to Oban
Glenfinnan Viaduct and the Hogwarts express where it was filmed great to the this scene in person and witness the steam train come across the viaduct.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Ben Nevis
