Reviewed 18 January 2014

Lovely house. Beautiful setting. An amazing host. We wish we could've stayed longer. Colin provided great advice on things to see and do in the district. He provided an enormous breakfast. When asked about a nearby laundromat he simply took our washing from us and did it. We loved Scotland in general but we really loved staying with Colin in Spean Bridge. On his advice we did a little walk around Spean Bridge and spotted a pine martin. On his advice we walked for a day up a glen, providing our most memorable walk. On his advice we visited a local restaurant where, an hour after it closed we were still sitting at the bar with the owner talking all manner of travel. This is a great place.

Lovely house with a garden surrounded by a river. Very clean and tidy. Wonderful host who made us very welcomed,and a full Scottish breakfast to set us on our way. What more could you ask for. Went down to the river and spotted a kingfisher, lovely to see.

On arrival we had a friendly welcome from Colin who promptly took our cases in and showed us to a very delightful spotless room. The decor was very stylish and the house was in the most beautiful setting which had lovely gardens surrounding and then the mountains in the distance. In addition meeting Murphy (the cat) made our stay even more purrrrfect...
The service couldn't be any better, Colin is the perfect host and presented a most yummy breakfast. :-) He also had lots of useful knowledge and helped us picked our very enjoyable day trips. Would we stay here again - Certainly. Would we recommend - 100%

I had a fabulous stay here after a days walking the Great Glen. Colin picked me up from Gairlochy and gave all the details of the area on the tour back to the B&B. The house was beautiful and extremely tastefully decorated by Sandra, such quality. Colin was very helpful with tips on where to eat, village shop etc and I enjoyed a chat on the decking in the glorious sunshine. Breakfast the next morning was great with a welcoming plate of fresh fruit to start off with, then a lift back to Gairlochy for the last day walking the Great Glen. Thank you Colin and Sandra, I had a lovely stay.

We stayed at Riverside Lodges for a week commencing 29.6.13, the lodge which was of a very high standard, had the most amazing views over beautiful gardens and mountains, it even looked stunning in the rain! Our dog had a lovely week walking in the peaceful and tranquil grounds to the lodges including a private beach for catching the rays, fishing or going out onto the loch by boat. We loved the surrounding area and walked on planned routes every day the nicest for us was Invergarry. I would highly recommend these lodges and will definitely return.

We stayed with Colin last year and had a lovely time so we went back again this year. Colin is very welcoming and friendly and has loads of local knowledge. The house is lovely, it's very clean and you smell the scent of lovely fresh laundry as soon as you walk in. The rooms have stylish decor and comfy beds, and the bathrooms have soft fluffy towels and a shower gel/shampoo/ conditioner dispenser in case you forget to bring something. The breakfasts are delicious and very filling with a refreshing fruit platter to begin. Each morning Colin brought me a huge pot of tea and a cafetiere of fresh coffee for my husband, as well as mugs of hot chocolate for our kids. There is access to the River Spean via the back garden and in the evenings my husband and kids would go exploring and I would sit out on the decking with a glass of wine or a coffee and read my book. The location is central for all the places we like to go to, Mallaig, Morar, Fort William, Fort Augustus and on this visit we went up to Achnacarry too, after Colin told us how to find it. We can't recommend this B&B enough, and much as we might try to plan on expanding our travels next year, I'm sure we'll end up back at Riverside Lodge!

Room Tip: If you want to soak in a bath choose the green double room, the red one has a shower.

Riverside Lodge Gardens was delightful from beginning to end. Colin was an excellent host, took an interest in his guests, made a darn good breakfast and had a lovely place!! This was the cleanest place we stayed! We were only there for one night - passing through on our way to the Isle of Skye. Colin was quick and helpful with a dinner reservation and suggestions for what to do at our next destination. We were made to feel very much at home here. We had the twin room, which we took because it was the only one available. We would have been more comfortable in a double bed. Only fault I could find was the water pressure in the shower could have been better. However - as we found at our next location, it could have been worse too!!!
