Give this one consideration. - Rating 4/5

It is out of town with the disadvantages entailed in that. But it has lots going for it. It is quiet and comfortable, good bedrooms and excellent breakfast. The host is friendly and helpful. I would certainly book again.

Comfortable and clean.- Rating 4/5

Achnabobane was a lovely B& B. The host was very friendly and full of tales to tell. Our room was a little on the small side but adequate for our needs. We shared a bathroom with two other visitors, if this is a problem for you you may wish to specify when booking. Breakfast was plentiful and freshly cooked.

Room was clean and tidy, with a comfortable bed. Location was good for exploring Fort William, though it is much easier to get around with a car, as is not walking distance to the town. Neil was a very friendly host, with a good breakfast.

Have you met Neil? - Rating 5/5

We had a lovely 1 night stay in Achnabobane farmhouse. Neil is such a funny and welcoming host. He picked us up from the Great Glen Way and even droveus to a great restaurant in Spean Bridge. The family room we stayed in was really comfortable and smelled very clean. It was just amazing waking up to the spectacular view from his house. Hats off to Neil, truly, for continuing everything after the loss of his wife and doing it by himself. It was a stay to remember!

You will love it here. - Rating 4/5

When you come from the inner City chaos of Greater Manchester, can there be any better place then this? Sure there are the noises of the farmland in the morning, and sharing a bathroom and toilet might be a bit of a drag, but then you look out of the window and see the Ben Nevis range and you forget minor inconveniences like that. Plus there is no traffic noise, the bane of so many establishments I've stayed at. I did find the room a bit stuffy which affected my sleep, but that is just me. Food was plentiful and well cooked. Just a great place in a great place!

Lovely spot - Rating 5/5

We had a very nice stay at Achnabobane Farmhouse, which is situated in a lovely and spectacular landscape. From there we explored the fantastic Glencoe area and went for a wonderful walk to the hidden valley. Neil made us feel very welcome and prepared a delicious breakfast for his guests. Thanks very much, Neil. We enjoyed it a lot, also the nice bottle of German wine you gave us one evening.😊


The pleasure was all mine, Claudia & Hans. Lovely to have met you both and very much enjoyed your company. Umm, the wine was excellent! All the best parties end up in the kitchen!!

I've stayed only one night at the Achnabobane Farmhouse and loved it. The place is very nice and quiet, the bed was very confy and the breakfast very nice. I was travelling with a motorbike and the owner is also a biker so it was nice talking about our passion.You can easily get dinner at Spean Bridge or Fort William in the evening but you'll have to drive.

I spent two nights at Achnabobane Farmhouse. The view from my bedroom window of Ben Nevis and surrounding area was breath-taking. An ideal location for visiting other stunning scenery and facilities. When in the area, Achnabobane will be my first choice B& B.GREAT breakfast!!!! Superb host. The room was clean and well looked after and that can be applied to all the house. As they say in my county of birth, PROPER JOB!

Very comfortable B&B with stunning views. - Rating 5/5

I stayed here whilst on a walking weekend. This B&B is very comfotable, warm and spotless. I had to leave very early both days so I missed cooked breakfast however Neil was very accommodating and let me help myself to cereals and toast etc. so I didn't go hungry. There is a very useful booklet in the bedrooms which explains everything you need to know about the B&B-including a touching tribute to Neil's late wife Elizabeth. On my first day, I got soaked and fell into a river. Luckily Neil helped to dry my clothes! My room was very comfortable, perfect size for one person and had TV, sink, kettle and selection of teas and biscuits with the stunning views of Ben Nevis and the Grey Corries & the garden. Thank you Neil for your hospitality

Hi Patti & Gary, You will make me blush, Sir! It was an absolute pleasure talking to you both during you visit here. It is rare opportunity to discuss with anyone, the tactics employed by Gen. Lee and Grant. I learnt a lot from you Gary and I thank you for that. Col. Gadsden remains an interesting topic of conversation and will be 'trooped' out each and every July. If ever you both decide to return to these shores, please be assured of a very warm welcome here. - Neil & Elizabeth

Walking the great glen way - Rating 5/5

We stayed in this guest house on our great Glen way walk.Neil was very helpful in picking us up at Spean bridge, which helped us a great deal as we had our dog with us and it would have been difficult to walk with her along the stretch of the busy a82 between Spean Bridge and the guest house.He also dropped us the next day for the start of the walk.Tha guest house is in a stunning location with amazing views.The rooms were really clean and comfortable.Would definately recommend staying here.
