“Perfect!”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

This was my second stay here, this one was for three nights at the end of June 2012. Jackie is the perfect hostess, in the perfect home in the perfect location. I had previously stayed in the downstairs bedroom but this time I was in the upstairs twin ensuite bedroom which was beautifully decorated and was very comfortable with stunning views of Ben Nevis. Had a great breakfast every morning, which was chosen from a long list, looking out over the lovely gardens and up to the mountains. Convenient location with Mallaig only an hour's drive away, Inverness an hour and a half's drive away and Isle of Skye an hour and three quarters drive away, which will all take longer due to the stops you'll have to make to take in the breathtaking scenery! Would definitely go back to Jackie in Rustic View if I were in this area again and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone else.

I phoned this B&B on the off chance they had a room for a night (June 13th), we were welcomed with warm hospitality and a beautiful house with superb garden and a wonderful view of Ben Nevis. The room was of the highest standard and there was a huge selection to choose from for breakfast which was cooked all fresh and to order. I highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Fort William.

Room Tip: The area was quiet & peaceful

Rustic View is an excellent b&b in a quiet location with views of Ben Nevis, but not far from Fort William and all its amenities. The owner, Jackie, is a lovely lady who will make you feel very welcome and at home and ensure that you enjoy your stay. The rooms are very comfortable and furnished to a high standard. Breakfast is served in the conservatory. There is plenty of choice for cooked breakfast, including porridge and delicious kippers, and an attractive fruit platter alternative. There is a pub a short drive away (or 15 minute walk) which serves excellent bar meals at reasonable prices. There is also a supermarket nearby which stays open late. There is plenty to do in the area and it is also a good base for touring. I hope to return next year.

Rustic View was a wonderful place to stay and even better was Jackie and her hospitality. After an entire day of driving in the rain, pulling up to the comfort of the little red cottage was great. Jackie welcomed us with enthusiasm and a full explanation of the home, breakfast and suggestions about the surrounding area. In addition to the impeccably clean and quiet bedroom and bathroom, Jackie's breakfast and morning conversations together was wonderful. As the title says, my husband and I now consider Jackie and her B & B a new Scotland home that we will definitely visit again.

Thank you, Jackie. We had a lovely time and can't wait to see you again soon!

(Jackie has been running her B & B for more than 20/30 years (can't remember exactly), so you are sure to have a wonderful experience.)

Spent two nights here whilst touring. Beautiful property & rooms, spotlessly clean & warm. Excellent hostess - really useful tips/advice on the area. Lovely breakfast. Would make a point of staying here next time we are in the area.

We stayed one night at Rustic View as part of our tour of the Highlands. Jackie was an excellent hostess. She made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of brilliant recommendations of places to visit and even phoned ahead for us to book our next B&B. The room was exceptionally clean and the towels were the softest and thickest we have ever come across!! The view of Ben Nevis from the garden is out of this world. The breakfast was also spot on.
