Thanks Zhihao, One thing we cannot change is our lofty location above Fort William. Good views reward the fifteen minute uphill walk. We do pick folk up from the transport station if we are around, just phone!


The shared shower had a hard time reaching a reasonable temperature (either way too hot or cold) with low water pressure, and the bathroom in general needs repairs (visible mold and water damage).

Thanks Joy, We will look at the shower this morning, although you were the only person to mention it. We prefer guests to ask us to improve faults at the time, rather than a week later in a review. The bathrooms are due an upgrade in October/November and will be much improved. Alan & Sue Kimber


A little more atention to the guests would be good. The front door was open all night. There was no reception.

Reception has a very big sign over the door with a red arrow pointing to the bell for assistance. The front door can be closed and ALL guests are given a key to open it, What more would you suggest? Thanks, Alan & Sue
