Very pleasant, very clean and very comfortable stay. The scenery and views from each of the rooms were stunning and the rooms were equally so! We only stayed for one night, and our only regret with the accommodation is that we didn't stay for longer/ The breakfast in the morning was delicious, we were given generous portions and a lot of choice, possibly one of the best breakfasts we have ever had! The rooms were spacious, the bathrooms modern, and came with everything we needed. There was a lot of attention to detail which was a delight, including a terrific selection of teas! Thank you for a great stay! It felt like a home away from home!

A lot of attentiveness for every members of the family. Lovely house in front of the Loch. Excellent breakfast. Ideally located on the road between Malaig and Fort William, close to the famous bridge of Glenfinnan.

We travelled across scotland this summer and stayed in various hotels and bed & breakfasts. Whenever you are planning to visit Fort William you should consider to stay at the Ardarroch Cottage B & B. With an eye for detail on the room (UK Adaptor, fruit, magazines, local information), spacious and comfortable bed, and a breakfast adapted to your cultural requirements its worth spending a night! Thanks again for your hospitality! ps next time my wife will expect Nasi Goreng with our Breakfast ;-)

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
