We stayed for 2 nights (and breakfasts!) and everything was comfy and accommodating! Everything you need is provided. Views were OK, but you are rarely in your room. Great location for a home base while you take in the sights. Breakfast was excellent and made to order. Hope we go again someday!

Room is adequately furnished. Bed is a little bit saggy. Breakfast is normal. Nothing much to shout about, and nothing bad either. Good if one is looking for no frills accommodation. Jim the host is friendly.

My partner and I stayed at Gowan Brae for 5 nights to do some winter hill walking. We had a really comfortable room with lovely views of the mountains. Ann was friendly and helpful and provided delicious breakfasts with fantastic vegetarian options (would really recommend the breakfast cranachan and the avocado and spinach on toasted muffin). We would definitely recommend...

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Scottish road trip holiday with my daughter. The B&B was easy to find from the south side of town on the A82, it's on a street one up the hill from the main high street with all it's shops, pubs and restaurants. It has the look of a traditional Highland boarding...

Great location - quiet with parking but centrally situated for shops and restaurants. Warm and comfortable room with lovely view across the loch. My best breakfast of our trip (fishcake, smoked salmon and poached eggs)!

This nice house B&B is ideally located in Fort William, being situated above the town itself and only 5 minutes walk from the town centre. This is a welcoming and friendly place to stay, the rooms are spacious and warm and the breakfast is amazing! Certainly look to come back here next time we are in Fort William
