Stayed here for 2 nights with some friends. Absolutely fabulous place, the owners are a credit to guesthouse community. Went out of thier way to cater for all our needs, dropping us off for a meal due to bad weather, taking us to Fort William for a hire car and adding extras on the breakfast. Amazing place and hosts.

This has to be one of the best B&B's in Fort William (and probably Scotland). Superb hosts who look after you so well. Not only a great breakfast, but always greet you with tea or coffee when you come in after a day out. And the view is to die for! Very well appointed, extremely comfortable and clean. I will...

We loved our stay at Glenshian! Glenys greeted us on arrival with some afternoon tea served in the dining room overlooking the canal. The views were breathtaking. It did not escape my 11 yr old's notice that Glenshian has a puppy in residence! My son played with cheeky Bramble out on the back lawn for quite some time. Bramble was... More

We recently spent a night at Glenshian Guesthouse during a road trip around the Scottish Highlands. The guesthouse is very well-located, just three of four miles from Fort William itself, right by Neptune's Staircase. The rooms are decently apportioned and very clean, with en suite facilities. The locally-made toiletries were a bonus, as was the welcome tea/coffee and cake. The... More
