Can't recommend the Ben Nevis Inn enough. One of the best burgers I've ever had and would say is a must for anyone into them. I started with the haggis and my better half had the spring rolls. With sea bass as the other main and the lemon tart and rum and clootie dumpling ice cream as the desserts, this... More

Really nice hostel! Friendly environment and beautiful scenery all around you. Stayed in hostels before and this was one of my favourites due to the calmness of it all if you know what I mean (if you have stayed in 'party' hostels you'll understand!) Obviously it's a great location for climbing Ben Nevis and also for climbing/walking in other surrounding... More

Haven't been here for a while, it can be very hit and miss with the food! Son had haggis, neeps and tatties, which was very tasty but I don't like peppercorn sauce. I had overly crispy bacon, with very hard poached eggs on brioche, very dry. Husband had a panini, which was fine. Real ale and views good 😊

Our group stayed up here for two nights as a base to head up the ski hill for some winter skills. Small selection of ales to drink and the food was really good. The dorm is pretty much like any dorm.

Found this gem on the way back to Glasgow. It's hidden, trust the GPS, it feels like you're in the middle of the forest. It's like a mountain cabin get away. There was a roaring fire going and hikers resting after a hard day. We had an amazing dinner with very authentic haggis. The beer was great and the music... More

Recommend booking a table here as seemed pretty full all evening. Lovely atmosphere, very calm and cosy. Food was absolutely delicious - great menu choice, we only had main course and dessert but both were brilliant. Highly recommend the chicken dish with haggis they have on at the moment. Will definitely return if I'm ever back in the area! It... More

We visited here as a party of 4 for a birthday treat, we all had different starters which we were all pleased with, and the main courses were just as good. Service was excellent, we even managed to fit in a dessert too, but. Couldn't finish mine as I was completely stuffed. So all in all food and service was... More

This is the 3rd or 4th time we've eaten here and it never disappoints. The food is always fantastic in a lovely rustic environment with great views. Can't wait to go back!
