“Delightful B & B with Upscale Accommodations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

My husband and I stayed at Ardarroch Cottage 4 June 2013, for two nights. We knew from positive reviews that this was the best choice for us but we were still surprised by how very nice the accommodations are. Both rooms are very large, light-filled and airy, with sitting areas. The furniture and beds are top of the line. The bathrooms are well-appointed and again with lots of light. All are in pristine condition.
Simply, Ardarroch is superior to other B&Bs.
Barry and Ellie are terrific; you'll leave feeling like friends.
Regarding the parking: it is not a problem. There is a paved lane for parking parallel to the road.
We were very much off the road when parked and it did not present a problem in any way.
Going east from Ardarroch Cottage is a most beautiful stretch of road.....we suggest
travelers drive all the way to Mallaig.
Sheep were nibbling in the meadow next to Ardarroch Cottage, Ben Nevis was out the window,
Loch Eil gleamed across the road which is very quiet. Tranquility, charm - and the friendliness of Barry and Ellie - are what we take away from the visit.

Nice location 8 miles from Fort William along a quiet road to the Isles. Very comfortable, clean and spacious, king size bed in room 1 as well as vue on Ben Nevis and on Loch Eil. Barry and Ellie are so friendly and helpfull; always happy to help. They even lent us walking poles that saved my knees going down from Ben Nevis. They made breakfast at our convenience, prepared some food for our Ben Nevis trip and provided excellent advises. The breakfasts were made of good quality ingredients including eggs from their own chickens and cooked to perfection. One evening, a few red deer paid a visit: 3 in the garden and 6 just on the other side of the fence (including a baby), magnificent! We stayed 4 nights and would come back with no hesitation. Thank you both Ellie and Barrie for making our visit to the Highlands to agreable.

myself and my wife have just returned from a fantastic 2 nights stay at the ardarroch hosted by barrie and ellie, everything about this b&b was spot on, food was excellent and plenty of it from cereals to full scottish breakfast, we also had home made muffins, the views were fantastic overlooking the loch and of ben nevis, barrie and ellie made us feel most welcome and could not do enough for you, including a wee dram sitting outside watching ellies chickens running around the well kept gardens, we have been to few a few b&bs and this one is top of them all, lots of little touches throughout including robes and slippers in your room, will return again, if looking for a b&b, then book this one. thanks, Alex and Anne

Barrie and Ellie are excellent hosts. They made us feel wanted from the moment we got a text to hope that our journey to Scotland was going well. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious and well appointed with a good view of Ben Nevis. The bed was extremely comfortable and the towelling robes were a nice touch.
I went down with a virus within a few hours of arriving and they could not have been more solicitous, allowing my wife to use the fridge etc.
The location makes an excellent base for exploring the area and of course the famous Glenfinnan viaduct is only just down the road.

My husband and I stayed here again for one night on our way to the Hebrides. We were made very welcome by Barrie and Ellie. The room is beautiful and spacious with lovely views and we were able to watch the deer from the room which was nice. I note that the parking will be through the gate in the future - that would make it absolutely perfect! Even though there is a road at the front of the property this does not detract anyway from the excellent nights sleep that we have experienced here - the bed (and pillows) are so comfortable. Breakfast was so delicious and plentiful. We will definitely stay again shopuld we come to this area.

Wonderful and friendly hosts in an amazing spot.
Was an easy drive to Fort William for dinner, but was nice to be staying away from the town as the location here is so much better. Best breakfast I have had all year and room was

A great place to stay in a super location. Right between Glenfinnan and Fort William so very convenient for both. Room was superb and spacious with gob-smacking views of the Lochaber mountains. Breakfast top notch to boot. Go for it!
