5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We have stayed here twice and will keep returning when we can. Our last stay was for three nights.
It is in a good location for touring. The room was clean and well equipped, with a great view. There is a spacious lounge with lots of books & maps for you to peruse.
The hosts are excellent, warm and welcoming, they are happy to share their local knowledge.
The breakfast was superb and kept us going for a long time.
Some good places to eat out in the evening not too far away.

I stayed 3 nights at the Braes during a holiday in the Highlands earlier this month. I can't credit Phillippe and Theresa with the weather (which was great, so I had no need to call on the drying facilities), but they did everything else to contribute to a delightful stay. I had a single room with a garden outlook rather than the more scenic south side of the house, but the views from lounge and outside are superb, facing the Nevis range and Grey Corries. My room was well-appointed, comfortable and modern.
I was welcomed with tea and cake and, especially helpful for me, an offer to print the mountain weather forecast. There were suggestions where to eat in the village; the Braes is just outside Spean Bridge, so 10 minutes' walk (or a couple of minutes' drive). The breakfasts were superb, with a wide range of choices.

We stayed at Braes House for one night on an eight day walk on the Great Glen Way. Although all of the B&Bs we stayed at were satisfactory, Braes House stood out as the best. The room was spacious with lots of light. The proprietors--Phillip and Teresa--were extremely gracious, happily driving us to dinner one night and to the point on the trail where our hike began the next morning. The English breakfast we had was the best we have had of over a dozen in Scotland. While all of the B&B proprietors that we met were courteous, there was a sweetness at Braes House which made it unique.

Stopped on the great glen way! Brilliant house with great rooms very modern & great bathroom. The view is brilliant with the nevis range glisterning in the window. The breakfast is the best we had along the way. They also drove us back to the great glen way to resume our walk.

Wow what a place, Phillippe and Theresa were great and so friendly, nothing was to much trouble from the welcome cup of tea and cake when we arrived to the lifts into the village and picked up again after dinner. The drying room was a god send after a wet day on the hills. Thanks a million for great breakfasts and a great stay. the packed lunch was also well worth the money :)

Philippe & Teresa keep an impeccable, friendly B&B with a glorious view across the glen to Ben Nevis. Room was functional, clean and comfortable. Breakfast perfect.

Plenty of good restaurants to choose from nearby for dinner.

Good value
