My wife and I stayed with Sarah and Jack over 2 night while walking the West Highland Way. The Guest House is perfectly positioned as the trail enters Kinlockleven…so no big walks around town trying to find your hotel. We were greeted by Sarah and taken to our room, had a great treat when we were provided with freshly made cookies and milk for the room. The accommodation is immaculately kept, our room had a TV and DVD so we could make use of the DVD library in the guest house when relaxing on an evening. There is a sitting room with an honesty fridge full of beers, Wines and soft drinks as well as goodies to eat. The breakfast was awesome, I opted for the porridge which was the best porridge I’ve ever had, it was full of chocolate drops, coconut and bananas just to mention a few of the ingredients and looks like a thing of beauty… exactly what is needed for walking the trail. We purchased a pack lunch from Sarah and Jack, again this was fantastic. The guest house is perfectly located to the facilities in the town with just a 5 minute walk into the centre on kinlockleven. This is a beautiful guest house where you will be very well looked after and not disappointed.

An amazing B&B on the West Highlands Way in Kinlochleven. The rooms are well furnished and the service was excellent. All you could want from a B&B. Would definitely recommend a stay here. We even had warm home made cookies brought up to our room the afternoon when we arrived, a real treat.

I have stayed here for the past 2 nights with my husband and children (11 and 9). I was sad to be leaving. It is surrounded by mountains, has a beautiful waterfall within very close proximity (a couple of hundred metres) and a fast flowing river with a gushing inlet, again within a very short walking distance. The breakfast was excellent and Sarah and Jack offered a few items that were not on the menu for the children. Last night we could not get into a local eaterie and had to get fish and chip take-out. When we returned the table in the breakfast room had been laid for us and condiments offered. Sarah brought us homemade cookies for dessert. They offered advice on places to visit whilst we were there and as I checked out this morning, Sarah handed me a piece of paper with ideas of things to do for our onward stay in Aviemore. I have never felt so well looked after - ever, and all in a beautifully maintained house that is very clean, well decorated and well supplied with super soft towels and high quality toiletries. I cannot recommend this guesthouse enough.

We stayed here while walking the West Highland Way in early July 2021. It was a lovely experience. We were made to feel completely at home and the children were spoiled with cookies on arrival and hot chocolate with the top notch breakfast (husband says it was the best porridge he’d ever had!). The rooms were beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. The attention to detail was perfect, with lots of nice touches including an honesty bar in the lounge. Sarah provided some top recommendations for places to visit in Fort William the next day. Now looking for an excuse for a return visit to Kinlochleven…..

Was recommended this B&B after our original accommodation for the West Highland Way fell through, and am so glad we were! One of the nicest places I’ve ever stayed - we had the triple room in the loft and it was perfect! Room was super clean and modern, very spacious and furnished beautifully. And the shower was great! Sarah and Jack made us feel so at home, with milk and homemade cookies on arrival and a lovely breakfast the next morning. Location is beautiful, with red deer hanging around the field opposite! Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay for our last night walking the West Highland Way! Thank you Sarah, Jack, and Ellis!
