We stayed as a family over the Easter holidays for three nights and would haved loved to have stayed longer if our schedule had allowed. We had a fantastic time, with much of the credit going to the friendly service provided by the Linfield family.
The highlights were many, but really the best - having two animal lovers along - were all the animals. We were allowed to help feed Lilly, the one week old baby lamb, petting Hector and Primrose (the adult sheep) and playing with Molly, Rilley, Anna - the three family dogs.
The B&B is very clean and well appointed. Beds were perfect (firm but not hard.) Maybe it was the clean Highland air, but personally I slept better than I had in a long time. Breakfasts were great with scrambled eggs that couldnt be any fresher!
The location is tops. As mentioned in other reviews here, the location is secluded but yet close-by to Ft. Williams. (The last 1/4 mile drive to the B&B was great fun with the trip through the tunnel). Also, very lovely and romantic walks around B&B to include the Tor Castle ruins by a picturesque bend in the river.
Incidentally, we found Ft. Williams to be overall very centrally located and was the perfect place to serve as a base location to make one-day excersions throughout the Highlands.
Highly recommmed this B&B.
