“Comfortable and welcoming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Started the West Highland Way with a night at this place. The room was perfectly clean and comfortable - sadly a twin rather than a double but we booked quite late. Morag the owner couldn't have been nicer - welcoming and happy to offer suggestions about places for dinner or lunch the following day. Breakfast was ok - served with a smile but a bit greasy - not the best we had on our travels. I'd stay again though.

Big clean spacious room and huge modern bathroom, with comfortable beds (but what to do with all those scatter cushions?) and a friendly welcome from Morag. We appreciated the various teas and biscuits in the bedroom and had a good breakfast to see us off on the West Highland Way. Thanks Morag!

this was my first time staying at the best foot forward, had a very warm welcome from morag on my arrival. my room was very nice and so was the en suite, it was lovely and spacious. i had a very clean room with a jar of cookies and some sweeties which was a nice touch, i had plenty of tea lots of different varieties, coffee and even hot chocolate. the breakfast was outstanding i had the continental option which was great, i had lots on my plate and plenty of things to chose from, having the flag of my country on the table was a nice touch. morag was very helpful and met all of my needs she also gave me really good advice about where to eat for dinner and places to visit, overall the best foot forward was a great place to stay and i wouldnt hesitate about coming again and i would highly recommend this b&b :)

Stayed here on the night before starting my walk.
Friendly welcome, lots of suggestions for eating places, large clean room.
Huge breakfast, a nice little touch was the flag of your country on the table at breakfast, it really broke the ice with all the guests.
I would recommend this B+B without hesitation.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed with Morag and after over 10 years the warm welcome was the same. We had a beautifully clean room with a lovely jar of chocolate cookies! We walked into town and bought a take away for our tea, we ate it out on the terrace / deck and Morag kindly lent us cutlery and glasses for our wine. We had a lovely filling breakfast the following morning and enjoyed the chat with fellow walkers also staying. Conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the town centre and the start of the Way ..... would definitely recommend. Jenny.

A reassuring start to our holiday. Morag and her staff were very helpful and friendly - especially reassuring about "Travel-Lite". The bed was very comfortable. En suite was cramped, but nevertheless clean and well maintained. Breakfast OK. Did struggle to get a decent wi-fi connection.
