Our stay with Paul and Aileen at Braeside was amazing. We have recently moved up to fort william and stayed with them on our first week here. They were amazingly helpful in telling us places to go which are dog friendly, babysat the dogs while I was out sorting out housing. A wonderful couple who will give you the warmest of welcomes to thier very lovely home with rooms that are really comfortable, clean and just really nice. Will definately send friends and family to stay there when our house is to full!!

Stayed here with my wife for three nights 28-30th April. My wife was on walking break and climbing Ben Nevis with a party of friends and I as I have a mobility problem I relaxed here. On arrival we were greeted with a very warm welcome which immediately made us feel relaxed and at home. Braeside is not just a guest house but a home full of joy and laughter which emanates from hosts Peter and Aileen who are REALLY special people who go to great lengths to ensure a happy, comfortable and relaxed stay. The facilities are superb and everything is spotlessly clean, beds comfy and a very pleasant lounge with TV and other entertainment facilites for one to enjoy. Both Peter and Aileen are great conversationalists and have a firm knowledge of what is available by way of entertainment, outdoor activities etc etc. in the area.
The views over loch Linnhe from the dining room are excellent and add to the pleasure of enjoying breakfast. We took the full English breakfast which was served fresh and piping hot and in generous portions! A good choice of cereal, yoghourt, fruit juice and Aileen's delicious home made muffins (which were to die for!) and home made pastries were also available if so desired. As I looked down on my breakfast and saw the HAGGIS (optional) nestling lovingly beside the bacon, sausages, egg, mushrooms, tomatoes etc of my Full English Breakfast ( a misnomer when it was made in Scotland) I suddenly realised that First Minister Alex Salmond has got it all wrong about independence for Scotland and that we need Scotland to remain a vital part of the UK.. I could write lots more about Breaside and the wonderful Aileen and Peter but suffice it to say "Don't miss staying here if you get the chance to". You will not be disappointed. Will miss Aileen and Peter but hope to be back soon. Just love them both. So very kind and helpful.

We had an absolute delight staying with Paul and Aileen. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with a Scotland road trip. We ended up in Fort William and had the pleasure to spend one night at Braeside House. The rooms are spacious, clean and very fresh. No complaints whatsoever. The breakfast served is superb and you can tell it's freshly prepared. To enjoy it in the beautiful atrium - with great views of the loch - is a bonus.

If you're ever in the area, stay at this place, you'll not regret it!

Paul and Aileen have exceeded all expectations. The Braeside House offers great service and excellent character. The view is epic and words don't do it justice. Paul and Aileen offer quality in every way. Great value for the price!! Aside from hiking Ben Nevis, spent the majority of our time on the patio overlooking the fabulous view.

Will be back, guaranteed!

I stayed here with friends recently when we walked the West Highland Way. The rooms are quite large, and very well equipped. Great views from the front of the property, and the breakfast area.

Nothing was too much trouble for Paul and Aileen, our hosts - we had an early start the following day, and they were quite happy to give us an early breakfast. Not only that, they also gave us a lift to the station afterwards. And breakfast was very good.
