We arrived quite late in the evening, after driving up from North Wales. Steve greeted us and showed us our room. Tastefully decorated, clean and very comfortable room indeed. I loved the little touch of having a "wee Scottie dog" toy on the bed. The breakfast was excellent, fruit, yogurt, cereal, full cooked with toast. WOW! Steve and Cathy. Our...

The room was very comfortable, with good facilities. The breakfast was fantastic. The whisky porridge has to be tasted to be believed! I really enjoyed my stay. Steve and Cathy had lots of advice on places to visit, which was helpful as I hadn't been to the area before.

It is a must to have a plate porridge before your full Scottish breakfast. The chef (Steve) has honed his porridge recipe with the ingredients leaving you with a warm glow before the days activities. The location is ideally placed to explore the beautiful walks around Ben Nevis area.
