This was a stop over while walking the WHW. Chris was our host and we were herded into a room and given the prodedures to follow. I suppose it isn't easy greeting one nite stays over the long season but if you don't like the work you shouldn't be running a B&B. The room was bright and clean with adequate...

The room wasn't, the big enough to swing a cat, you couldn't put your feet down the side of the bed without hitting the wall. The supposed en suite was an old cupboard, with the smallest sink and shower I have ever seen. The breakfast was terrible, my wife had the worst scrambled eggs I have ever see in my...

Having read other reviews, we were a bit worried about staying here but in fact it was not that bad. Not the best B&B we have ever been in but certainly not the worst. The bit about waiting outside is true. We arrived at five to four, in the driving rain, cold and wet but the door was not answered...

Stayed for 1 night while walking the West Highland Way. I feel like this place has received some really bad reviews....but honestly it's fine for a 1 night stay. It's not a hostel but a mix between a hostel and B&B. The prices are definitely high for what you get. We paid the same price for much much nicer places...

Welcomed by the owner since it was after 4pm. A basic room just big enough for a double bed and a miniscule en-suite facility. Good lounge and breakfast room and a good hearty breakfast. Was perfectly okay for a one night stay but not for longer.

Stayed during west highland way walking. Had a twin room which was so small we couldn't get both suitcases in, had to stack them. There was a shower cubicle in the room....it was a plastic square with Perspex door, not suitable when the occupants are not intimate. Toilet was shared down the corridor. Had to order breakfast by 9pm and...

I would describe this accommodation as a hostel (rather than a B+B); very friendly, clean and well run but with one shared WC between several rooms. Good number of places to eat in Tyndrum and right on the West Highland Way.

We were a group of 6 travelling the west highland for a week in mid July. All the the accommodations on our tour arranged by Mac's adventures were very clean , comfortable and we were very happy with EXCEPT this establishment. We were basically treated like little children ordered to take our boots off before entering, carry our boots down...

Fairly disappointed with this night, particularly relative to the other lovely places we stayed in during our WHW walk. Our group of 5 arrived late (8ish) after walking 22miles - getting a yelling from the owner is the last thing I had expected. Fair enough we could have called ahead and told him, but no need to be outright rude...
