“A Jewel in Ft. William”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

What an amazing place. All the beauty of the Highlands and excellent customer service. We we were picked up from the train station very professionally but a taxi driver could easily find his way. Torcasle is situated on a working farm with a lively family running the show. Spacious and warm rooms with all the comforts of home. The best breakfast that I've ever eaten with farm fresh eggs and sausages. Thank you so much to the Torcastle House! We'll be back for sure.

Just home from a delightful two nights spent at Torcastle House, everything that has been said from the high scorers was true plus more !!!!!! This is a GREAT place with great hosts all in an ideal secluded position, simply pay attention to the directions on line and you can't go wrong. Beautiful clean rooms and EXCELLENT breakfast including home produced bacon, eggs and sausages, 100% perfect, hope we get the chance to go back here again.

The hosts were fantastic at Torcastle House, who made you feel right at home. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. Very quiet and peaceful and the drive was quite and experience. Breakfast was lovely with a wide range of foods available to eat. Only stayed for 1 night but wish we had stayed for longer. Would definitely stop here again if in the area.

Stayed for just one night but would have loved to have been staying for longer. Outside Fort William so quite secluded but within 10 mins of the town and very special as like a secret wee wonderland. Access is through a magical tunnel which is very very unusual but really added to the drive and the wonderful scenery just made our visit so special. We were so lucky to have some nice weather too. Ilona the owner couldnt have been more helpful and welcoming and the house its self was just gorgeous. Couldnt have wanted any more. Lovely homely room, couldnt have faulted anything. We were in Fort William to do the Jacobite train journey to Mallaig which is well worth the visit and that was so special too with spectacular scenery again enhanced by the lovely weather we got. Home through Glen Coe and Anoch Moor which again was to die for. Our country is amazing and we just dont appreciate it enough. Would highly reccommend Torcastle House and would defiinately not hesitate to choose to stay here again. Wonderful!

So pleased you enjoyed your stay at Torcastle House. Most people fine that they need a few days to explore the area as there is so much on offer. Glad you enjoyed the steam train to Mallaig, it is a special journey with fantastic views.

Stayed at this establishment twice now and it is a great find. Ilona and Gavin the owners are so friendly and their children are very chatty and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and the cleanliness is superb. The breakfast is great homecooked food.

The location is stunning with great views to Ben Nevis and overlooking the River Lochy. It is very close to Fort William (5miles and you need a car) but there is some lovely walks and a pub within walking distance. If you are looking for peace and quiet then Torcastle House should be at the top of your list if visiting the area around Fort William, Scotland.

I would recommend this B&B to everyone it is great value and hospitality.

Room Tip: There are two rooms one with a shower and the other has a full bath and shower
