“The best three days of our trip!”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

We spent three days in Rustic View, an absolutely loveley b and b in Fort William. Jackie, our hostess, couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. From the moment we arrived, it was like coming home.The room was very clean and spacious, with a modern bathroom and even a little lounge area! Jackie made us every morning a wonderful breakfast (choice between full scottish breakfast, continental or a fruit platter) and she was always ready to provide us with assistance or ideas to spent the day. We were sorry to leave after three days, cause there were still a lot of things in the area that we really wanted to see. Fort William and Rustic View stole our hearts. If you're planning a trip in the area, I can fully recommend this b and b to you!

Stayed in Rustic View Bed & Breakfast at the end of June 2012 and would thoroughly recommend a stay to anyone. We stayed in the twin room with ensuite and have to say this room was comfortable, clean and cosy with a capital C!!! Facilities are first class. Have to say Jackie is the hostess with the mostess and made Rustic View feel like a home from home. There are lots to do in the local area and during our stay we had a train ride to Mallig (stunning views and would recommend this trip to anyone) and also a cable ride up Ben Nevis. The food at Rustic View was amazing and such a variety!!! Would definitely stay here again!! Jackie thanks for making us feel so welcome and a part of the Rustic View Family!!!

I had a great time at the Rustic View B&B Lochyside

Jackie was very helpful in every way even helped me decide what I was going to do with my 2 days there.

A must do at the Rustic View is have the Kipper for breakfast, this Kipper has changed my favorite breakfast forever, Seriously try the Kipper it is sourced and smoked locally.

Ben Nevis and Glen Nevis on the right day this is wonderful.
A great Central point for either heading north for the day towards Mallaig or heading west to Oban
Glenfinnan Viaduct and the Hogwarts express where it was filmed great to the this scene in person and witness the steam train come across the viaduct.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Ben Nevis

I stayed 18 June 2012 for 3nights at Rustic View with my partner and Dad.
If you are staying at Fort William this is a wonderful place to stay. It was spotless and Jackie was so friendly and her breakfast with the option of fruit platter or Scottish cooked Breakfast was top notch.
Jackie must work so hard for the high standard of Rustic View. Things like gorgeous bed linen and wonderful soft towels and the rooms were spacious and modern and spotless.
The views out my bedroom and my Dads were breaktaking of the mountains.
Lovely quiet location with a long drive off the street made for a very peaceful nights sleep.

thank you for making my dream holiday to Scotland for me and my family It will never be forgotten for your wonderful kindness thank you Jackie

If you're looking for a warm welcome and an excellent place to sleep in Fort William, we recommend Rustic View! Great B&B and Jackie gives you a warm and homely welcome. Excellent rooms and the breakfast is great as well. Just stayed here one night but when we get back to Scotland we definitely will be visiting Jackie again.

This was our first stay at the Rustic View & we will definately be returning. Jackie is a lovely hostess who does everything in her power to help you have a lovely stay in Fort William. She can recommend places to visit & places to eat. She told us a bout a lovely place called Steal Falls & it was absolutley beautiful. The rooms are beautifully furnished & the showers are lovely after all that walking.We stayed in the downstairs room with a fab view of Ben Nevis, this is also the view you get in the breakfast room - spectacular. The breakfast are great as well plently of it & cooked to perfection. The veggie breakfast was also lovely my husband had a great choice. For anyone thinking of visiting Fort William this is the place to stay.

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.
