We stayed in the Shepherd's Rest on the first night of our stay, the welcome was amazing, so warm and chocolates and a card too! We were married the week before and were on our honeymoon. The decor is beautiful and accommodation makes it a home from home. The breakfast next morning was breathtaking and kept us going until evening.

The next day we stayed in the Shepherd's Room. This is an en-suite bedroom on the first floor with a dining room with two comfy chairs on the ground floor. Again, amazing! Breakfast is served on the dining table and plentiful and delicious.

We were staying on our honeymoon but whether you are passing through on the West Highland Way or just want to chill and visit some of the areas places of interest, choose The Shepherd's House Bed & Breakfast. You will meet Chris and Jenny your hosts and leave as friends.

We will be back, thank you...

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

As the first guests to experience both the Shepherd's Rest hut and the Shepherd's Rooms apartment we're especially glad to hear how you enjoyed your stay - so far you are unique in sampling everything we have to offer. Thank you for choosing to spend some of your honeymoon with us. We hope we helped create some special memories for you both.

Thank you for a fabulous nights stay we loved your wee shepherd's hut and will definitely be back, it was spotlessly clean, warm and cosy, very comfy bed, great shower, amazing use of space and the breakfast hamper....waow, it was well presented and packed with loads of woderful food. You made us and Roscoe (our dog for anyone reading this) feel very welcome and also special. The weather wasn't great but we had a fabulous time regardless, we did the cruise to Luss and had an amazing bowl of soup at The Coach House (thanks for the tip) wandered about in the drizzle but still had a great day. Thanks so much for the choccies and card - what a really lovely thought. Can't say any more other than we will be back

Room Tip: Only tip we have is if you want a unique experience in a wee oasis of calm book here It is WELL worth the money and there is a pub/restaurant a 10 minute drive in either direction or a 45 minute walk

What a wonderful time Ben and I had at the Shepherds Rest. On arrival we recieved a warm and friendly welcome. The Rest is so cosy and beautiful, really pretty, and such a joy to come home to after a long days hike. The location is peaceful and quiet so you can just unwind, read or just sleep. Breakfast is unbelievable. It comes in a hamper about 3feet wide with your hot breakfast and so much more. It was wonderful and I was so full I didn't think I would need anything more to eat all day. I did opt for the lunch pack and wasn't disappointed. I can't recommend this little Shepherd Rest more highly and the owners were the best. The family even waved me off when I left and one of their daughters gave me a daffodil. Lovely. I stayed for two nights and would have loved to stay longer. So reasonably priced as well. I'll definately be back. Thank you thankyou for a wonderful stay.

A beautiful accommodation in a nice (but quite remote) location right next to the West Highland Way.

The breakfast was fantastic, so many things to choose from, and all of them very delicious. A good way to get some energy for the next part of the WHW.
The rooms are very clean and tidy, and you can watch the stars while lying in bed. :-)

Especially the friendliness of the hosts must be mentioned, as they helped in many ways.

We're going to do the WHW again sometime, and we're definitely going to stay at the Shepherds House again.

The remoteness of our location is something we have been very keen to get across to all our potential guests this season. The east lochside is quiet and tranquil but there are very few places where visitors can come and stay, and even fewer where they can truly appreciate the peace and stillness of the loch shore and the forest at night. When the stars shine it is extra special! Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon.

Myself and my mate stayed here after our first day walking on the West Highland Way. After a long walk from Glasgow we were met by our host who picked us up at the Rowardennan Hotel at 7.30 pm. This was a welcome service as we were both out on our feet. By the time we arrived at the Hut it was dark, however we had no problem In locating everything we required. The Hut has a double bed, and although we were two guys, we managed to have a great night sleep without even looking at each other! Ample room. I got a bit of a ribbing for booking a double bed, however as soon as we lay down we were out for the count. In the morning we were met by our wonderful breakfast which had everything required and set us up for the day. We were returned to our walk in the morning by our host and we honestly couldn't have asked for anything more, our wet clothes were even dried out in the main house. I would definitely return and recommend a stay here.
