We had chosen to make this our long day on the West Highland Way, so after almost 20 miles we arrived in Kinlochleven. Edencoille is on the far-side of the town and a little uphill which almost finished us off !!
The welcome was warm and the unexpected offer of a fruit meringue was a nice touch.
The bathroom was large but every available surface was filled with shower gel, shampoo etc which left no room for our stuff. The room was small with no space for our two cases and again many of the surfaces were covered - more biscuits, tea, coffee, milk than you would use in a month !!
Breakfast, however, more than made up for those minor quibbles. We sat at one of two large tables which makes it so much easier to talk to the other guests - many of whom we had stayed with or met on other parts of the walk. The food was incredible - you could order almost anything you could imagine and at this stage we went for the continental. Lots of fresh fruit, cold meats cheese, wonderful.
