We used this b&b as a stay over on the West Highland Way

We stayed here by fate as there had been a mix up on our booking with another B&B. We were very lucky as this turned out to be a great place to stay.

Paddy had just completed an extension and the standard of finish is superb.

Great location, near pubs and eating places and right on course for the start of our next days walk.

Paddy (owner) is super helpful and accommodating.

There is a dry out shed to the rear of the property which was brilliant!

Very highly recommended and would stay again without question.

Thanks Paddy for a great stay.

What a pleasure it was to see this B&B so close to the WHW when you enter the village. Paddy gave us a warm welcome and we experienced this B&B as one with a high standard. Everything was clean and tidy. The only minor point is that there is only one toilet with washingtable which has to be shared with the other 4 rooms on the floor. But despite this I would certainly recommand this B&B to everyone who is looking for a good place to rest after a long day walking.

This B&B set in beautiful surroundings was perfect for walkers on the West Highland Way. The facilities were of an excellent standard with a high spec finish. I spent a very comfortable night there and would rate in as the best we experienced on the West Highland Way. Paddy was very welcoming and provided us with an excellent breakfast chosen from an extensive menu. Residents lounge and computer provided was very welcome. I have recommended it to family and friends and I hope stay there again.

The seemingly ordinary surroundings of Forest View hide a real gem of a place. It has been recently created to what we regarded as the highest standards seen on the West Highland Way. The rooms, facilities and decor could simply not be faulted, and it's only a short walk to the pub.

Paddy is a welcoming host who obviously cares about the level of service he provides. The best cooked breakfast on the Way (and to be fair, there is a lot of competition!) was followed by the best value packed lunch we saw. In this district, I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!

Stopped here whilst walking the west highland way. from the moment the 5 of us arrived we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was to much trouble. Paddy had a drying room for walkers and i understand secure parking for cycles etc . Breakfast was to a very high standard. Would definately stop here again couldnt fault it.

Friendly, clean rooms with tea / coffee making facilities and a good cooked breakfast.
En-suite showers available and communial (shared) toilet.
This accomodation is a good location for walkers on the West Highland Way or to use the indoor climbing centre (The Ice Factoiy).
I used this as a base for climbing Ben Nevis.
There are several pubs in the village where you can get a meal or travel approx 20 miles to Fort William..

Good b&b, very clean and tidy. Friendly and very helpful host with great knowledge of the local and surrounding areas. The breakfast gives you a great start to the day, with a good varity to choose from. The views are a breath of fresh air with a local waterfall just a walk away. Only 30 mins to Fort William and Ben Nevis. Good all round I highly recommend this B&B.
