We decided to stop at Glengarry while walking the West Highland Way because of the great reviews and because dinner was offered. It was nice, but not great as we'd expected based on the reviews. The B&B is outside the village, and there is a lot of traffic on the road to get there (though that is less of an issue early in the morning and later in the evening.) There is a narrow path along the road, but it is not the most pleasant walk.
We had not realized that there were several options for dinner and that we had to tell the owners what we wanted to eat before 18:00. When we arrived we were very tired, and when we arranged breakfast and lunch for the next day the lady didn't mention anything about also choosing dinner. Even though we had booked dinner and even exchanged e-mails about it, she just assumed (without checking with us) that we didn't want it after all. We only found out when we came down to eat and there were no seats for us! They said that they were already done cooking and couldn't accommodate us anymore, not even with a simple dish. We were disappointed but they offered to give us a lift to the village. (Unfortunately, the options there are nothing special.) We thought that, since we had already booked dinner, they might at least have checked with us and/or remind us instead of just assuming we'd be eating elsewhere.
Our luggage was waiting for us in the room when we arrived. When leaving we found the laundry basket in front of our door - everything was clean and folded, which was great!
