We'd highly recommend this B&B, and will stay here again if we are ever in Ft William. We stayed in the two-room suite, which features fantastic views of the loch and hills (but when sitting on the couch thankfully obscures the dreadful A82). Our room was comfy and attractive, and though cold at first it heated up very quickly. The free wifi and a good selection of DVDs mean that if the rain closes in you will be comfy, warm and entertained.
Chris was a great host, offering us a coffee and homemade cake from the moment we arrived and giving great advice for day trips. The breakfasts were impressive. He also had lots of ideas on local walks and drives, and places to try for otter-spotting.
The only slight difficulty we had was finding it, as the sign faces the loch rather than the road, but there are plenty of places to turn around if you accidentally zoom past (it would be a hike into town if walked, but you don't come to Ft William for the high street, and you can always get a taxi back).
