We booked a triple room, for three of us, talk about spacious!! It was a perfect place to stay on our first night before we started The Way. As I mentioned, our room was huge, en-suite too was spacious, which was excellent, when there are three adults sharing. We also liked the little added extras, including the jar of cookies! To sum up, Breakfast was excellent, rooms were bright and clean, beds were comfortable and Morag is the most wonderful and knowledgeable host. What more do you need?!

We had a lovely time, Morag was very kind to us, and was in full availability to every request. The room was huge and amazing, and the tariff was more than fair. This was our first stop before starting the West Highland Way, and it sure came through.

Stayed here the night before starting to walk The West Highland Way.
Very warm welcome, good accommodation and excellent breakfast..
I have stayed here several times before and the host, Morag, has maintained a good standard in her accommodation, food and approach to her guests.
I would recommend this accommodation to anyone staying in Milngavie.

Smoked salmon and scrambled egg is a delicious alternative to the onslaught of full Scottish breakfasts that you may lie ahead of you - and Morag cooks it to perfection! This is a comfortable and friendly b&b that hasn't succumbed to the latest trend of rationing tea bags and coffee sachets to a miserly 2 per person as I found elsewhere. Instead, there is plentiful coffee and a lovely selection of breakfast tea, green tea, heather tea and probably thistle tea if you delved deep enough! A jar full of choc chip cookies and a full sweetie jar are present too! Add to this Morag and her hubbie's friendly and hospitable attitude and the good location (5 mins to station and 10 mins to town centre) and it's clear that the BFF is one of the best choices along "the way".

A warm welcome, a very clean and spacy room, en suite bathroom with a bath, coffee and tea in the room... what do you need more?
Breakfast was good, just what you need to start the west highland way.
We left with some good advice as well: your skin is waterproof!

I highly recommend this one when staying in Milngavie!

There were six of us in our group all walking the West Highland Way. We received a warm welcome from Morag, the accommodation was clean and comfortable and there was a friendly atmosphere throughout the whole house. Breakfast was also good and set us up well for our first day of walking.
