When we went here we had no idea what to expect. We were driving there and did not realise how far off the beaten track this would be. We were starting to get images of getting lost.
Really this was just a case of getting used to as it is not as far out as our imagination on day one made us think. But still you feel that you are in the middle of the forrest as you should with a former hunting lodge.
It is not the modern luxury type but it is inviting and homely. Those that cannot live without TV or internet (we were too far from the router to get it) need not apply. The website is clear about that so it was not a suprise and we got our internet fix in town, easy enough.
The place, rest, darkness and silence is enchanting. You immediately feel the stress of current society subside and are folded into the peace that the woods bring. You sleep in complete darkness and silence. We loved that aspect.

John is extremely nice and knowledgable about the nature that surounds you. He also knows about how to catch the Jacobite when you do not have reservations.
We liked the place a lot, but next time we'd be going for the wildlife experience he also offers.

A friend introduced me to this B&B when I was on a work trip. Great for those on walking/outdoor trips. Not for those that want luxury but clean, pleasant owners and a lovely breakfast. If I dare say it such good value that I thing its under priced!!

Major bonus was that pine martins visit the house every evening!!!

Quiet location - this place is off a single track road about 6 miles out of Fort William

Really good value, a more traditional type guest house some might say a bit old fashioned but clean, spacious room, good shower, tea/coffee, comfortable guest lounge, etc. Good breakfast and pine martens a real treat - made my holiday. Jon extremely knowledgeable and obliging, really helpful with wildlife tips which enabled us to see red squirrels the next day with very little effort! Lovely quiet location just north of Fort William. Only downside nowhere local to eat - you have to drive.

We booked for one night, stayed for two and wish we could have stayed longer. Next time we want to go on the wildlife holiday. We were well cared for and clearly if you love woldlife and want to spend time with kindred spirits you will love a break here. I was talking to a senior citizen that was on the wildlife holiday, they told me how kind Jon had been and how the wildlife holiday had been paced to their overall health and limited fitness.

Enjoy.

Just back from a week wildlife break. Jon and Angela superb hosts. Very knowledgable, wide range of habitats and wildlife. Taken to places you are unlikely to stumble upon by chance. Resident pine martens visit every night. Home cooked food excellent. Don't eat the cakes though. Have them couriered to me and I will dispose of them safely for you. Wildlife didn't always co-operate but I would recommend a guided wildlife tour at Glenloy Lodge to anyone.

Highly recommended. Rooms clean, quiet and comfortable. Our room had a lovely big shower and was very light. Friendly helpful proprietor. We were on a wildlife holiday which was excellent.

Glenloy Lodge is set in a beautiful spot, with a little creek and waterfall, a tangle of mossy trees and, lovely wildflowers, and yes, the amazing pine martens. Jon is a great host, very friendly and with tons of local information.Our room was nicely decorated, the water hot, the beds comfortable. Breakfast was delicious thanks to Angela's behind-the-scenes work. It was very cozy to sit in the sunroom and watch the well-fed birds and pine martens coming right up to the door. You can chat with other guests, sketch, or just read one of the many books lying about. Walking along the nearby river, we spotted beautiful large black slugs--about the size of our yellow banana slugs in the San Francisco Bay Area! If we are lucky enough to visit Scotland again, we will definitely return here, and next time will sign up for one of John's wildlife trips!
