My husband and I and our friends, another couple stayed at Heathers for our last night in Scotland. We were on a driving holiday in UK and Scotland. Heathers is on top of a hill just off the main road overlooking the gorgeous Great Glen mountain range and Loch Luchy. We were well looked after by Ian and Sheila during our stay with wonderful breakfast feast with home made scones, bread & cookies. Rooms were so elegant but comfortable with a lovely bathroom with skylights. Our room had a great view of the Loch and the mountains. They had free wi-fi and we were able to use skype to talk to our kids. Had dinner at the Letterfinlay lodge about 2km away.

This gorgeous B&B sits in a beautiful old railway location with outstanding views of the Loch and surrounding areas. The owners (Liz & Andrew) have created a beautiful, welcoming and extremely comfortable guesthouse that I would thoroughly recommend. The inside is impeccably kept as are the lovely gardens outside. I found the owners (and others I met) to be very friendly, helpful and kind and helped me enjoy my stay.

We stayed four nights at the Heathers and - as we were the only guests - had the hospitality of Liz and Andrew exclusively on our own. From the very warm welcome (with a cup of tea, lovely biscuits and a chat with the hosts in the guest lounge), to the breakfast of outstanding quality (we still dream of the salmon and the venison sausage), the service of drying our jackets and trainers after getting wet in the Scottish rain... this place is full of "attention to detail" - like a five-star-hotel. Would always stay again if coming to the area!

Just returned from a fantastic visit to the Outdoor Capital of the UK, Fort William and Lochaber. I spent two nights at The Heathers Bed and Breakfast, and highly recommend it to anyone who wants fantastic hospitality, luxurious rooms, hearty local produce breakfasts and amazing views of the mountains and the loch. I was on business in the area, but was really made to feel at home by the owners Liz and Andrew, nothing was too much trouble. Everything you need (and more) is in your room, TV, tea & coffee, shortbread biscuits, hairdryer etc..... The grounds of the property are also beautiful, the gardens are lovely, and the view of the loch is breathtaking.

The B&B managed by Liz and Andrew is located on a hill with a fantastic view on the lake. The rooms large, very nicely decorated with a very hospitable atmosphere. Liz and Andrew have created a very hospitable atmosphere with an excellent breakfast!

Just spent a night at The Heathers. Andrew and Liz were exceptional hosts - even providing loads of information beforehand by internet to help us plan our visit to the area. The house is immaculately kept with beautiful, well tended gardens. Skylight looking out on backyard mountain in bathroom was a treat! Lovely views from every angle. Lovely, very comfortable, functional bedroom, stunning bathroom. They provide a fresh, delicious breakfast. Delightful, hard-working couple eager to advise or answer questions. Just wonderful!
