Highwinds Bed and Breakfast

4.9 (139 reviews)
Torlundy
Tel: 01397 703455
Highwinds Bed and Breakfast is in the rural settlement of Torlundy 4 miles north of Fort William with superb views towards the North Face of Ben Nevis and across farmland to the hills beyond Loch Linnhe. We recently completed a full renovation to create a high standard of luxury en-suite rooms that all take advantage of the magnificent views. Walks in this tranquil location lead directly from Highwinds with the convenience of being a short distance from the main road and dedicated cycle/walking track. These head north past Nevis Range and south to Fort William making us an ideal location to explore this wonderful area, the Outdoor Capital of the UK.

My husband and I were over the moon with our accomodation. The hosts were so lovely and knowledgeable. The room was beyond expectation and I have already reccomended to other family that are travelling to the area in 2019. As a bonus the breakfast was also delicious and filled us up for big days exploring the highlands.

Everything was great- the location, the breakfast, cleanliness of the room and the friendliness of the owners. The maps and guide books were very helpful.

Tips:

A trip on the Jacobite steam train is a must as is a hike in Glen Nevis to Steall Falls (the cable bridge is a little intimidating but worth the crossing). Bring rain gear and plan on getting wet if you come in September. If the clouds part for a brief moment as it did for us, make sure you snap off a few photos of Ben Nevis and the surrounding hills before they hidden again.

This was the nicest B&B that we stayed in during our stay in Scotland. It was clean, modern, the hosts were so personable and we just really enjoyed it. The only downfall was the location at a few miles out of Fort William but, the host arranged a taxi for us and even got us a restaurant reservation. So I really cannot complain about anything. Highly recommended!If you have the funds eat at the castle interlock he, just about half a mile from their location. Super elegant delicious dinner. And they’ll even let the men borrow a jacket.

From start to finish Liz and Kenny were the perfect hosts. They could not have been more helpful, be it booking us into restaurants, checking weather reports or recommending places to visit. The room was immaculate and very comfortable- nothing could be faulted. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel at home and by the end of our stay we were gutted to be leaving. The breakfast each morning was delicious, the hosts offering a wide variety of culinary delights. The location was flawless - 10 minutes outside Fort William, in the heart of all the prime walking routes and is positioned perfectly to offer views of Ben Nevis and the Nevis range. This is the best b&b we have ever stayed in and we will be booking to come back next year- we cannot wait! If 10 stars was an option we would be giving it!

We had a brilliant stay for 4 night. Liz gave us a warm welcome. The room was very big and comfortable. The bath seemed to be brand-new and was big again. We really enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was made every morning fresh to our needs. The house is not in the city but close enough to walk there (if you really want to ;-))

Tips:

Go and visit Glen Nevis and take a walk there! Glen Coe (on the route to Glasgow) is only 20 Min. away and has a wonderfull landscape too. If you want to see the "Harry Potter train" park your car at the old castle and walk under the railway-bridge over the river. You can't get any closer. The train leaves Fort William every morning at 10:15!

High Winds B&B is in a perfect location and has great views (we had room 1 with a view of Ben Nevis). The breakfast was lovely and rooms are extremely clean and pleasantly decorated. Liz and Kenny were brilliant hosts, very friendly and helpful. We definitely recommend this accommodation and plan on making a return ourselves.

Tips:

The Ben Nevis Distillery Tour was quite interesting. If you’re into golf, Fort William golf club has a beautiful course which is quite technical in places. If you enjoy a run you can either head out of the b&b turn right and go along beat 4 or park at the brave heart car park and use the trails, both have lovely run routes. Wouldn’t recommend parking at the Ben Nevis Visitor Center to go for a run as we found this a bit too busy and were weaving in and out of hikers, great for a walk though.

This is the best B&B you'll ever stay in, clean, private and very smartly decorated like a hotel room, with the added friendliness and helpfulness of the B&B owners being on hand. It didn't feel like the awkwardness of being in a strangers home, which I've felt in other B&b's. Liz made us a cooked vegan breakfast and made sure the biscuits and milk in our room was vegan - which we were impressed with. The view from the bedroom and bathroom is incredible. If we're ever in that area again we will stay here.

Tips:

We went for dinner to the Ben Nevis inn, which was booked for us by the B&B owners! It was great having dinner at the foot of Ben Nevis and we went for a wander around afterwards - take midge spray! We had come from Loch Ness and fort William (a busy high street town) earlier in the day and drove on the following day to Glasgow, via glencoe, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. There is so much to do nearby. Although a car / taxi helps.

A very warm welcome greeted us when we arrived at Highwinds. The hosts are charming, hospitable and nothing seems to be too much trouble. I forgot to tell in advance that I am coeliac and can’t have wheat or gluten, so Liz made a special trip to the supermarket to get gluten free bread for my toast at breakfast. The rooms are spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable and my room has views of Ben Nevis - although due to the weather I never did see the Peak! You could not ask for more of a B&B and I have no hesitation in recommending that you stay here. Thank you and I hope to revisit soon.

Tips:

Fort William is lovely and there are some good restaurants- Liz will be happy to give you recommendations ( and even phone to make reservations for you). The whole area is outstandingly beautiful and one trip you must make is to Eilean Donan Castle.

We enjoyed a relaxing few days at Highwinds. The standard of cleanliness throughout the property was exceptional with lots of lovely little touches like the rose tied towels, access to maps/walks, fresh milk for the bedroom on request. Kenny and Liz were kind and considerate hosts and Liz offered to prepare a packed lunch for our walk up Ben Nevis. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was lovely with a great choice and plenty of everything. The location of Highwinds, just outside Fort William and with an outstanding view of Ben Nevis, provided a comfortable and peaceful haven. We cannot rate this B&B and its friendly hosts highly enough.

Tips:

We walked Ben Nevis and it was an amazing experience helped by the good weather and clear views. Highly recommend the Ben Nevis Inn for a meal - but booking is required. A variety of restaurants and eating places in Fort William. A boat trip around the loch (Crannog boat tour) with a fantastic commentary was informative,peaceful and enjoyable. The gondola experience at Glen Nevis with short walks at the top and a nice café was great.

Warmest of welcomes. Room was faultless and extremely comfortable. Great views. En suite of the highest standard with great shower. Loved locally produced toiletries. Friendly and helpful. Proper porridge. Generous selection for breakfast, all excellent. Loved our stay and will definitely return and recommend.

Tips:

Although Highwinds is a few miles outside Fort William and we had travelled by train, A&A Taxi Services which Liz recommended were totally reliable. We prebooked for the station to catch the Jacobite train and the Glasgow train.

Liz and Kenny were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. Liz did all she could to provide us with extra care and nothing was too much trouble. Huge choice to eat at breakfast and it was all beautifully presented. Nice to stay in a friendly, family run B&B. Our room was spacious, light and comfortable and spotlessly clean. The house is in a fantastic peaceful situation with stunning views of the mountains and fields too. Fort William is only a short ride away so everything is within easy reach.

Tips:

The area is packed full of activities and places of interest for all age groups. Facilities are modern and close by or central in Fort William. Families especially would enjoy this area. Lots of places to eat out, and local supermarkets provide everything you could need to pack up for a days touring, walking or climbing. You could just appreciate the wonderful scenery if energy levels are low !!

Couldn't have chosen better. Beautiful location with great views of Ben Nevis. Oodles of parking. The owners have definitely created a perfect spot to stay; extremely friendly, comfortable and well equipped accommodation - best two nights of our 20 night stay touring around Scotland (much better than 'chain hotels').

Tips:

Close to mountains ' Mountain Gondola on mountain of Aonach Mor (same range as Ben Nevis) - well worth a trip with splendid views. Nearby is the railway to Mallaig which incorporates the Glenfinnon viaduct (famed from the Harry Potter films.

My wife and I came to the Highlands as part of our Silver Wedding Anniversary celebrations. We could not have chosen better for our B & B. Liz Kenny are fabulous hosts -friendly, warm, charming, attentive and really helpful. They made us feel totally at home and ensured that our stay could not have been bettered. We would recommend Highwinds to anyone!

Tips:

Try the Crannog Seafood Restaurant at Fort William for excellent and fresh seafood in a quirky, warm and lively atmosphere with excellent service. For a bracing but not too strenuous walk in the gorgeous countryside try the Nevis Range and North Face walk - you can then go up the Gondola some way up Aonach Mor if you fancy it. Basically you are in the most beautiful part of the world surrounded by highlights such as Glencoe and Loch Linnhe. Another nice short walk nearby takes you up to the Neptune Steps - a series of lock gates close together on a steep canal climb/descent. Also try the Jacobite steam train from Fort William to Mallaig.The West Highlands Museum in Fort William is well worth a visit too.

Highwinds B & B was totally new and very well designed and maintained. The owners were friendly and helpful, going so far as to recommend restaurants and call and make reservations for us. They advised me on how to find the Great Glen Way hiking path while my husband climbed Ben Nevis. Breakfasts were top notch, and Liz will even pack a lunch if you need it.

Tips:

Restaurants at the base of Ben Nevis were both excellent. Local train ride to Maillaig was much cheaper than the steam train which takes the same route, but the scenery is the same, and tickets were still available on the local train.

sehr freundliche junge Familie; leckeres und reichhaltiges Frühstück mit toller Auswahl; Zimmer sind neu hergerichtet worden, geräumiges helles Bad; Alles einfach zum Wohlfühlen. So wünscht man sich immer B&B. Wir werden bestimmt wieder kommen, hier fühlen wir uns willkommen.

Tips:

in der Nähe gute Gelegenheiten zum Wandern, der höchste Berg Schottlands ist gut zu sehen. Fort William bietet gute Gelegenheiten zum Essen und Whisky-Genießen

Great facilities and warm welcome from Liz, Kenny and Kian. Loved location just North of Fort William down quiet track and wonderful view of Ben Nevis

Tips:

Liz and Kenny have all local info on Walks, activities, restaurants etc.. Recommended The Tavern in FW and food/service spot on. Highwinds is less than mile drive from Ben Nevis North Face Car Park.

We were late with our booking but were glad there was a room available. When we arrived we were pleasantly welcomed. The owners were very nice and kind. The facilities are brand new and very clean and up to current standarts. Breakfast was more than amazing. We could definitely recommend this B&B to anyone who wants to stay in the area. In 1 word: WOW.

Liz and Kenny were the best hosts we have ever stayed with. They were incredibly welcoming, accommodating and kind. They provided us with some great local knowledge, dropped us off in the town centre and even let us check out a little later. They went above and beyond any other host we have stayed with. The rooms were modern and immaculate. They were decorated to a very high standard, making the stay very comfortable. I would strongly recommend high winds to anyone staying in Fort William.

Tips:

Steall falls in Glen Nevis is a very scenic short walk. The Tavern does great food and cocktails in Fort William Main Street.

I would recommend this place for anyone who looks for a quality accommodation in a lovely area, only few minutes from Fort William. Highwinds BnB is very comfortable, modern, super clean and spacious. With a delicious breakfast and really lovely host. I am on a gluten free, vegetarian diet and the breakfast was spectacular, the dinning room has picturesque views over the mountains and extremely comfortable, designer's (Panton) dining chairs- much appreciated. I felt very welcomed and not rushed in the morning which speaking from experience is not always the case, so another 5 stars for that Liz! Thank you and I will be back!;)

Tips:

Spice Tandoori restaurant is actually very nice, the decor is questionable but the food is really good. Things to do- Ben Nevis if you can handle it. Steal waterfall is a lovely hike and it only takes about an hour to get to the waterfall, then you can brave the rope bridge. For an easy walk Glenfinnan Viaduct and Monument. And of course Glencoe, I can never get tired of the beauty of Scottish Highlands.
