Shepherd's house's hunter's hut is for people of medium height. It is most satisfactory, and Chris is a very courteous host, and even drove us from and to the rowardennan hotel in order for us to not have to stray from the west highland way. Breakfast was vast and comprehensive, and they spared no expense. Speaking of which - the prices were very reasonable and we slept like logs in the hut.

Thank you for your kind feedback. We worked hard to come up with a hearty, yet portable breakfast that we could serve to guests in the shepherd's hut and we're glad to hear it did the trick for you.

Because we were unable to find accommodation at Rowardennan on the West Highland Way, we were pleased when we managed to obtain a booking at The Shepherds House. On arrival we quickly realised that we had lost a penny and gained a pound - such a lovely place to stay, peaceful, comfortable and all the little extras which made our one night stay such a memorable experience. Everything was perfect for us and we cannot thank our hosts enough for making us feel so welcome and so 'at home'.

Room Tip: The apartment was a joy to stay in.

Thank you for your kind comments. The Shepherd's House is a happy family home and we hope a little of that rubs off on our guests, although we do work hard to ensure you get your own peaceful space while you're here.

The east lochside is sparsely populated and this does result in a shortage of accommodation at times, especially during the peak walking season on the West Highland Way. We are just three miles from Rowardennan in a tranquil forest clearing, so we are a practical place to stop at the end of day two of a typical seven-day holiday on the Way, as well as a unique experience for travellers looking for something other than an inn a night during their trip.

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.
