    TripAdvisor Review

    "Full marks to Mr & Mrs Clark at the Gowan Brae, for going far beyond the call of duty, in order to make our stay, (my 10 year old daughter Florence and I), in Fort William, as rewarding as possible. This couple clearly have great empathy with their guests, along with pride in their home town and their establishment. Everything was clean and well maintained, with thoughtful touches, such as a selection of toiletries, bottle opener & glasses available. A good breakfast and warm welcome. If only more B&B's were like this!"

    An extensive breakfast menu including vegetarian options is on offer and particular attention is paid to the quality and presentation of food served in our antique themed dining room.

    Popular on the Breakfast Menu in  is our own recipe of Smoked Fish Cake served with Poached Egg and Grilled Tomato and Breakfast Cranachan served with a wee dram.

    Fort William High Street is only a 3 minute walk from Gowan Brae and this popular "Gateway to the Highlands" and Outdoor Capital of the UK is favoured by many as a base from which to tour the West Highlands.

    Glencoe, Inverness, Oban, Skye, Glenfinnan, Mallaig, Kingussie and The Cairngorms are all within driving distance for a day trip.

    The end of The West Highland Way has been relocated to the West End of Fort William and is only a 3 minute walk from the house as are renouned restaurants - Crannog, Lime Tree and The Grog & Gruel.

    If you are leaving by bus or train on the day of departure, leave your luggage at Gowan Brae and we will deliver to either station at an agreed time. (Offer available after 09.00)
