Everything was perfect. Very nice rooms, immaculately clean, only a few metres off the West Highland Way. Very nice landlord and great breakfast after a night in perfectly comfortable beds. I can also recommend the packed lunch. Would be delighted to come back if I'm in the area again.

Paddy runs this bussiness on it's own and Gave me a warm welcome.
Excellent place for an overnight stay while doing the WHW. It's directly on the route while entering Kinlochleven. The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Almost everything has been made of oak, I love that.

You can choose from a library of 100 dvds for free and in the lounge there's a computer available for them who need to go online. A half a mile walk (or some less) to the village pubs and shop.

We had a nice stay here and room was upgraded to an ensuite room which was great. 100s of DVDs for free use, clean spacious homely rooms. A shame the weather wasn't too good when we were there but nothing could be done about that! A short walk to supermarket and central Kinlochleven. Best to have a car if staying here unless you are walking on the West Highland Way.

My husband and I stayed at Forest View after spending a whole day hiking the hills. We were very impressed with everything at Forest View. Paddy had a place to dry our wet boots, the house was impeccably clean and the breakfast was delicious. We were also relieved that this was the first b & b you see after making the steep decent from the mountain.
