Tigh na Fraoch (House of Heather) is situated only 50 metres from the West Highland Way (righthand side after the camping site) and ideal for a night in Tyndrum. Tigh na Fraoch offers basic rooms in a basic house without any frills. Despite the somehow outdated interior everything is clean and there are no signs of tirement. The owner, Heather, is the personal reflection of her own house: no nonsens.
One little comment: the walls in the house are very thin and you could hear conversations of the other guests.
To my opinion the best restaurant along the WHW stands in Tyndrum. In the Tyndrum Inn I had the first proper meal during my walk.

Once again Heather was welcoming with tea and cake on our arrival having walked from Ardlui on the West Highland Way. The fresh trout for breakfast was delicious and really nothing is too much trouble for her. We will always return to this b and b.

Location was good for West Highland Way hikers. Close to trail and close to main road in the village where you can get a bite to eat, there is a nice pub at the Tyndrum Inn or supplies at the Green Welly Stop or Brodies Store. There is also a Tourist Information Center.

We were met at the door by Helen who we felt was not overly friendly, and shown to our room at the back of the house. There are no locks on the room doors. We had a nice view from our bedroom which contained a double and a single bed with ensuite bath. Helen soon brought us some lovely fruitcake and tea that we really appreciated.

The room is somewhat dated with worn rose coloured carpet. There is also carpet covering the bathroom floor that in my opinion is a no-no for obvious hygienic reasons, albeit, it did appear to be clean. The toilet was very difficult to flush which we brought to Helen's attention and were told to flush the handle harder. There was a small television mounted on the bedroom wall and WiFi available. I found the WiFi signal was strong for a while and then later in the evening and in the morning unable to connect. The bed sheets also appeared to be rather thin. There were toiletries, however, the bottles were only marginally full.

We left and went for dinner at the Tyndrum Inn. The portions of food were large and delicious.Upon our return the living room area had a door closing it off. We did not know if it was for guests or family so we retired to our room. The next morning we had breakfast in this room and it was nice to chat with the other guests. The breakfast was good and plentiful.

Our friends stayed at the nearby Glengarry House which they really enjoyed and is rated number one of five B&B's in Tyndrum. You may want to check it out if planning to stay in this area.

Warm welcome with tea and cake. Very friendly. Very clean, the most comfortable beds on the west highland way so far. Excellent breakfast. Lovely place to stay. Had a triple room with separate bathroom that had a bath. Just what was needed.

After walking 14 miles we were glad of the warm welcome Heather gave us. Cup of tea, slice of cake, and some friendly chit-chat: as well as some recommendations of where to dine in Tyndrum that evening. Our room was a great size, and had beautiful views out to the river which runs behind the house. There were no locks on the doors, and the front door was left open for us so it felt more like staying with your favourite auntie than in a hotel.

The breakfast was absolutely excellent, too. We both went for porridge followed by the trout (caught by Heather's hubby). Very tasty and a great way to start the day. Tigh Na Fraoch sits right off the West Highland Way, too, so you don't have far to go to get back on the path and on to Bridge of Orchy.
