A Wonderful Warm Welcome
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of September: we are regular visitors to Fort William - every 40 years! The welcome from Laura and Stuart was warm and sincere - and the accommodation matched the welcome. Lovely lodgings with ample off-street parking and a truly magnificent breakfast to set one up for a busy - or a lazy - day! Thanks so much Lorna and Stuart - we aim to break the sequence and visit again much sooner than 40 years time!

Short Break In Fort William
We stayed here for two nights and it is a wonderful guest house. The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean, the view from the window across the water was so delightful. The hosts are so friendly, make you feel instantly at home, able to answer any questions about the area and very importantly, provide a superb freshly cooked breakfast of your choice each morning. Would love to go back and will recommend to anyone wishing to stay in Fort William.

From the moment we arrived at Buccleuch Guest House and welcomed by Lorna we knew thjs was going to be a very special guest house. Our room was beautifully furnished and although we werent fortunate to have a front room with the gorgeous view we did take advantage of the lovely lounge area and enjoyed breakfast with the view in the breakfast room. Our room was spotlessly clean and the bed, which was made up with a top sheet as well, very comfy. (We Australians really miss our top sheet). The breakfast table was an amazing array of choices and the cooked options, delicious. Thank you again Lorna. It was such a pleasure to stay at your guest house!

We couldn't have asked for anything more. As a matter of fact my daughter and wife both asked if we couldn't just stay another night. From rooms that were well appointed and, in our case, room 2 had a lovely view of the loch and a good Internet connection to boot, to the breakfast bounty everything was provided for our comfort. The little things, like a power strip to plug all of our electronics into were there. Stewart and Lorna couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating for us, or for the poor couple that got lost on their way and arrived very late. All was provided. Just perfect and at a price that was hard to beat.

Warm Welcome
I chose this bed and breakfast because of past reviews and I am so glad I did. On arrival property looked very nice from outside and easy access and parking. Lorna the owner gave us a warm welcome and first impression of entrance made us feel happy we chose here. When we were shown our room we were very much impressed, room was bright, very clean and comfortable and even though we were on main road traffic noise was minimal and we had a great night sleep. In morning we were lucky to watch otters fishing in loch opposite B&b and this just put a perfect end to our stay. Breakfast was also very good with huge variety of buffet table and cooked breakfast. Note though cooked breakfast is 2 of everything which I didn't realise so waisted some if it due to having some cheese and oat cakes first. Fab stay we will use this B&b next time we visit and would recommend for excellent value for money. They deserve 5 stars.
