Were met by our congenial host. We were in the self contained room, which was lovely and warm. The breakfast was nice and filling with a nice selection of food to chose from and the cooked breakfast was filling. My Australian partner was happy as she had Vegemite for breakfast. Will definitely come back again.

All we can say is a huge thank you to Nic and Paul! We just had the first, and we sure, the most amazing holiday in Scotland. :) The room was very clean and tidy, warm and big enough for the two of us. As a welcome "gift", we got chocolate! :D The breakfast was enough and delicious, and there...

Definitely just an average B&B. Pros - the room was spacious, clean and modern. It was also quite warm. The bed was quite comfy. Cons - the bathroom was simply freezing. Unpleasantly freezing. If you opened the bathroom door so the warmth of the room got into the bathroom, you got the opposite effect - the room got colder. I...

I was camping with my Son on the west coast and we got sick of the rain so decided to get a B+B for the night. We were very pleased with the willows. Fantastic room, huge comfy bed and really great breakfast in the morning. The range of cereal, yogurt, fruit and juice was amazing to have as well as...

Room 5 was spacious with very comfortable beds and a greatly outfitted bathroom complete with way more than necessary. The breakfast buffet was the most varied and abundant we had throughout our trip across Argyll and the western highlands not to mention the cooked breakfast which included a delicious smoked salmon!

We stayed in the family room, which was very spacious and bright, and had everything we needed. The position of the B&B is also a point in its favour since it's close to the town centre. The breakfast was also really nice and varied, and the bunnies in the backyard were so cute. Highly recommended.

The hosts were extremely friendly and made us feel at home. We were in the annexe which is finished to a very high standard and had a superb bed and was the best we slept in during our tour of Scotland. It was lovely to see the dog, cats and rabbits that live there which I am sure any children...

This is a great place to stay to explore the Scottish Highlands! We had two wonderful days in Fort William and the surrounding area the summer of 2015. Willows is a nice and family driven B&B. The hosts, Paul and Nic, are very welcoming and hospitable. The rooms are spacious and clean, and Paul serves a good breakfast. Our kids...
