“Loch Lomond's hidden gem”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

This is an absolute gem of a place. Great, friendly service. The hut has lovely little touchesto make your stay a little bit more special. Every possible need is taken care of. I would recommend this place as a good place to stay for those travelling the West highland Way and for those who just fancy short walks along the Loch. Although we stayed in November, the hut was lovely and snug.

Room Tip: We stayed in the hut, which was lovely

Lovely B&B with a great breakfast which we just couldn't do justice to.
If you are walking the West Highland Way make sure that you take advantage of the Rowerdennan collect and drop off offered - those last 3 miles seem a very long 3 miles and we wouldn't have wanted to add them to the 14 miles to Beinglas next day!

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. We enjoy laying on a good breakfast, especially for walkers, as we know you need plenty of fuel for the day ahead!

My wife and I stayed here during our WHW walk in August 2013. Very nice, clean and comfortable B&B. The house is about 2-3km south of Rowerdennan which I did not fully appreciate when booking. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival. We dropped off our hiking gear, showered and then walked the 2-3km to the Rowerdennan hotel for dinner. The B&B owner (Chris) arranged to collect us from the hotel at 7pm and drove us back to the B&B. Great service. The following mornings breakfast was by far the best breakfast we had during our hike. I would thoroughly recommend this B&B.

Thank you for your very kind comments. We're glad you enjoyed your stay in our little forest clearing. We recognise that we are in an isolated location (actually, we believe this is one of the great things about staying here). We send out a welcome leaflet to all our guests ahead of their stay to make sure they know where we are and what are their options for an evening meal, which is especially important for walkers. As detailed in your leaflet, we normally require lifts between the house and the Rowardennan Hotel to be booked ahead of your holiday but fortunately we were able to help you out on the spot on this occasion.

Our B&B is pinpointed on all the main internet mapping services as well as on our own website and we encourage all our guests, but especially those who are planning to spend a week walking the often remote West Highland Way to Fort William, to know exactly where all their accommodation is located, and the locations of other key services, before they set out on the trail.

I'm a little late in writing this review...but better late than never! My fiance and I stayed in the Shepherd's Rest for 2 nights in April. It is a gorgeous wee place - beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It IS small, but you know that before you book, so it was no problem for us. Personally, I think it just add to it's charm! There is underfloor heating, which feel fabulous on the tootsies after a day walking and the breakfast hamper is unbelievable. Not only is the food tasty, but there is loads of it. To add to the specialness of the weekend, my lovely fiance proposed at the top of Ben Lomond and when we came back to the Shepherd's Rest, Jenny and Chris were waiting for us with a bottle of pink champers (provided by the fiance) and some lovely chocolates (from Jenny and Chris - thank you!!) Our time spent at the Shepherd;s Rest couldn't have been more perfect. The accommodation is adorable (comfortable and functional), the breakfast is plentiful, and the hosts are wonderful - they are really warm and friendly, and won't hesitate to go that extra mile for you. I can't wait to go back!

We can't wait to welcome you back! Keeping your champagne hidden while your fiance waited to propose to you on Ben Lomond is definitely one of our high points this season. We work hard to create happy memories for our guests but we love it when our guests create happy memories for us too.

We stayed in the Shepherd's Room for one night. This comprises of a little private dinning room and a bedroom with an en-suite. The location was perfect and only a short walk to the loch. The b&b was charming and decorated with lots of cosy touches of home. The breakfast was tasty and plentiful and the hosts were very friendly. Would recommend this for a peaceful break or to rest weary walkers feet.

When we arrived we were greeted by our lovely hosts,Chris and Jenny. We stayed in the shepherds rest ,i got all giddy with excitement wirh all the perfect little details ( Kirsty Allsop eat your heart out!). Everything was beautifully clean and there was attention to detail in everything.Careful thought had been given to make sure that everything complimented and perfectly equiped the hut. The bed was very comfy and cosy on a rainy scottish night.
Now the best bit was the mist amazing breakfast, delivered in a huge basket and beautifully and uniquiely wrapped was bountiful amounts of deliciously cooked and prepaired food. We had haggis,porrige, tattie scones, bacon baps..delicious! We had a lovely stroll down to the lock and took in the breath takeing scenery
Please can we return very soon????!

Walking the WHW with my husband there is no other place I would consider staying. The Shepherds house is a top quality B&B with all the privacy you will ever need. Chris and Jenny are such a lovely couple, so friendly. I must say it was great to see that the toiletries haven't changed since our last visit......they are absolutely fantastic! Have now purchased my own since coming home. Honestly the breakfast with home baked bread is a delight in the morning and I would recommend a packed lunch as it is by far the best you will get from any B&B. they have a fantastic addition to their accommodation with the Shepherds Rest. It is absolutely gorgeous. Will return again and Jenny Thank You for my chocolates as a returning guest. Both Paddy and I enjoyed them.
