I absolutely agree with every word that people have written about Edencoille and Elsie & Drew.
We stopped here on our first night of our walk on the West Highland Way going from Fort William to Milngavie. After a particularly difficult first day, and soaked through we arrived in Kinlochleven. With no idea where we were going, we phoned Drew at the B & B and explained where we were, and without hesitation he told us to stay put and that he would come and pick us up, 5 minutes later he arrived in his beautiful Land Rover, helped us with our rucksacks and took us to Edencoille. On the way he explained that they had a dry room where we could get out of all our wet clothes, and leave our boots, bags, and anything else that was wet to dry overnight, he also offered to dry anything else in the tumble dryer. As time was getting on and we were in danger of missing our evening meal, he told us to give him a shout when we were ready to go and that he would take us down to the village pub/restaurant and to phone him when we were finished and he would pick us back up; which he duly did. Now quite apart from this outstanding piece of service, which was well above the call of duty; the premises are outstanding with everything you could want, and to top it off they have the most extensive range of breakfast items I have ever witnessed (even in a 5 start hotel) my wife had a whole grilled trout with trimmings for breakfast and my daughter and me had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs; as well as all of the other usual items, they also had fresh raspberries, strawberries, pineapple and so much more. If I am every back up that way I will without a doubt be staying with this delightful couple and the most impressive B & B I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
