Extremely clean. Excellent breakfast. Very welcoming hosts who really take time to make you feel welcome and ensure you have everything you need to make the best of your stay. Sets a standard of customer care that many seek but very few obtain.

Tips:

Very close to range of types of restaurants. We used it as a base for the Jacobite Steam Train, but it would make an excellent base for any type of holiday.

Lesley and Peter are excellent hosts. Very appreciative of their guests and professional in all ways. Their breakfasts are superb, and highlight some of the area’s most delicious foods that you won’t find anywhere else.

Tips:

While Fort William is close, don’t overlook places to eat in Roy Bridge, just up the road a bit. Call ahead to the nearby Spean Bridge restaurants and cafe for hours (limited) and confirm they’re open (“Closed”, surprise!).

A fabulous place to stay. The location is perfect for a trip out to Mallaig, Glencoe and surrounding countryside. Distant Hills is perfect - beautifully decorated and maintained and spotlessly clean. Peter and Lesley are very friendly and welcoming and serve up a breakfast second to none. I thoroughly recommend you stay here.

Had a two night stay at Distant Hills and thoroughly enjoyed it. The attentive, helpful and interested owners were wonderful and the rooms comfortable and clean. We were impressed by the packed lunches going out to the walking groups although we didn't partake in one ourselves. Good local knowledge and assistance meant that we had good meals both evenings at local establishments for which we were grateful.

Tips:

Plan ahead and get your evening meals booked, especially in busy periods. Watch the midges they bite in early June as well as the peak of summer!

This lovely guesthouse exceeded all our expectations! The rooms were well-appointed and comfortable, everything was spotlessly clean, and the garden was wonderful to sit in and watch the birds amongst the flowers. There was a beautiful guest sitting room overlooking the garden, and a cosy breakfast room where they served the best breakfasts of our trip. The hosts were helpful and friendly. We could not be happier with our choice for staying in Spean Bridge.

Spotlessly clean, well appointed, outstanding service, excellent breakfast choices. Good location for touring the area.

Tips:

Fort William appeared to be the most obvious place to stay but it was almost fully booked and the cost was high. Five miles north takes you to Spean Bridge. An excellent central location for touring the area from. If you are planning to eat out, make sure you book ahead - Peter was very helpful with this. The Old Station restaurant was excellent.

Wonderful place to stay. Peaceful setting, superb accommodation, very comfortable and stylish. Everything you could need and want. The addition of organic tea bags in the room was very welcome and the first place I have ever found this. Breakfast was the best I have ever had, totally delicious and a unique choice which made a lovely change from the usual cooked breakfast.

Tips:

Peter was very kind in helping us with sample menus for local restaurants, gave us the benefit of his experience regarding location and food served and even booked us a table at the restaurant we selected. Could not have been more helpful. This is a beautiful part of the world and well worth a visit.

Distant Hills is a superbly run guesthouse. It is spotlessly clean, quiet and an excellent central base for exploring the Scottish Highlands and Islands. The breakfasts were a magnificent way to start the day and the Tunnocks Teacakes and Cadbury's Mini Eggs were just as good a way to finish each day. Thanks to Peter and Lesley for a great stay.

Tips:

We did three day trips from Distant Hills; a drive to Oban,a journey along the 'Road to the Isles' from Fortwilliam to Mallaig via beautiful Glenfinnan and a drive to the Isle of Skye via the Kyle of Lochalsh and a stop at picture-postcard Eilean Donan Castle. Early spring was a wonderful time to see the stunning scenery with the mountains still covered in snow.

A very good Guest House with all the home from home facilities you need. Excellent and helpful hosts, great indoor and outdoor seating areas (huge garden with hens and stream and mountain views), superb breakfast (with eggs from afore mentioned hens)

Tips:

We ate at The Old Station Restaurant - A very good restaurant and pub conversion of the original station, with great gastro-pub food in a relaxed atmosphere. After dinner the pub turns into an ad-hoc music venue; loads of instruments are lying about and no shortage of well-oiled musicians to take them up. We used Spean Bridge as our first stop off on our highland rail trip from Fife. Distant Hills is a short walk from the station and an ideal stop on the West Highland Line (stayed on Skye the next day, then Plockton, then Newtonmore).

We told you what a terrific time we had, and we really meant it. I cannot imagine a nicer place anywhere. I stayed in a hotel in Surrey last week (May 18th to 22nd) and the furnishings were shabby, the breakfasts were terrible, and they could take a great many lessons from you two. Thanks for such a lovely time and for taking such good care of us. If it's ever possible, I will come back. Helen Cameron, Guelph, ONtario, Canada.

Peter and Lesley are the most welcoming hosts one could wish for. Besides the professionality, the cleanliness of the rooms and excellent breakfast, they are always interested in giving you practical tips for your plans for the day, or just a regular chat. Nothing is too much effort.

Tips:

Must see things: Glen Coe: 35 mins drive from Spean bridge. Road to the isles (fort William - mallaig and glenfinnan viaduct): 1,5 hour drive. Eating out: Ben Nevis Inn (15 mins drive), the hollytree restaurant (40 mins drive) and the cornerstone restaurant in Mallaig
