We have just left Ben Cruachan after a wonderful few days in Edinburgh with some friends. We absolutely concur with all the praise heaped on Jackie and her lovely guest house in precious reviews. Nothing is too much trouble for her and her attention to detail is second to none.

Hi Fraser We have no parking at the guest house as it is in the city but my guests usually find parking in one of the small streets opposite. There is a parking area that is £4 per day. Also from Friday 6.30 pm until 8.30 am Monday all permit parking bays are free and open to visitors. Hope this helps. Jackie
