As soon as we arrived Eddie and Heather were there to greet us with a much needed refreshments after a long day's cycling. A great start to our stay. Both super friendly hosts who couldn't do enough for our party of 5 during our stay. Rooms were spacious , spotless and well appointed. Good showers too. Dinner( and breakfast )was excellent and although we were later than our planned arrival Heather accommodated us . Apologies Heather. My legs needed a few rest stops on the climb. Enjoyed the packed lunch supplied by the guest house on day 2 of our ride. A great service as there was nowhere to purchase food on our planned route . Would 100% use again .

We had a lovely 3 nights stay with Heather and Eddie whilst exploring Loch Rannoch by sail boat, great food, great company and lovely comfy room which felt like home from home. It takes dedication and enthusiasm to run a guesthouse so warm and welcoming.

We stayed for 2 nights in this lovely guesthouse located amidst stunning scenery. Heather and Eddie were charming hosts, making us feel very welcome and relaxed. Our room was first class, lovely and light with views over the valley, and tastefully decorated with a lovely comfortable king size bed. The ensuite facilities were clean and modern with a really good shower. We had our breakfasts and dinners in the guesthouse- the food was excellent, home cooked with plenty of choice. There is also a lovely guest lounge to sit and relax and enjoy a drink and a chat. We felt very much at home and were so well looked after it was difficult to leave. If you can bear to leave the guesthouse, the Loch Rannoch area has some lovely walks and stunning scenery. We will definitely return for another stay.

This B&B is a cut above the rest! The hosts Heather and Eddie were very helpful, friendly and accommodating. They dried our cycling gear overnight. We used the garden hose to clean our bikes and stored them in the wood shed. The accommodation was first class and breakfast and dinner were excellent. Strongly recommend having dinner. The food was absolutely brilliant. Heather is a great cook. One of our party is a French chef and even he was impressed, so it must be good. Breakfast by Eddie was also great. Packed lunch also great. Premises are licensed, so no shortage of beers and wines. Location fantastic. All round brilliant. Strongly recommend staying at Bridge of Gaur Guesthouse. Thanks Peter, Claude, & Claude

Cycled over here from Kenmore and were thrilled when Heather rolled out champagne to celebrate our son’s degree results. The Venison Madras could have been from any city curry restaurant and the newly refurbished back room could have been any high quality hotel. Lovely place.

Cycling the badger divide stopped here after Fort Augustus. After a hard days cycle we were given an incredibly warm welcome especially as we were 2 hours late for our meal! Wonderful room, fabulous food and delightful host family Heather and Eddie made for a trip highlight. Great guesthouse!!!!!

We stayed here for a couple of nights on our way south from the Hebrides, having initially been attracted by the location close to Rannoch. Heather and Eddie proved to be excellent hosts; we were made really welcome, and all meals (breakfast and dinner) were delicious. On our day off from travelling we drove the few miles to Rannoch Station from where we had a pleasant walk through the woods along a forestry track until it suddenly ended right on the edge of Rannoch Moor. We came back the same way.

We were lucky enough to have just spent two nights at the guesthouse and we only wish it could have been longer. What fantastic hosts Heather, Ed and Thomas were! We were made to feel incredibly welcome from the moment we arrived, as was our little dog who was spoilt throughout. The evening meals were delicious and we really enjoyed chatting with the other guests in the evening. The location of the guesthouse is stunning and there are some fantastic walks right from the doorstep. We'll definitely be back, perhaps in winter time when I can imagine it's even more picturesque.
