A wonderful Highland guesthouse providing mouth watering breakfast choices, beautifully decorated rooms, a licensed residents' bar and fantastic service. Free wifi, ample off-road parking and a large secluded garden with its own stream and small woodland. Guided walking holidays also offered as well as a self-catered option during low season.
A haven of tranquillity, Distant Hills Guest House is set in extensive grounds and located at the edge of the quiet Highland village of Spean Bridge, yet still close enough to the bustling town of Fort William and Ben Nevis. Located at the 'crossroads of the Highlands' and in the 'Outdoor Capital of the UK' region of Lochaber, there is so much to see and do, and all easily accessible. Whatever your interests, we'd be more than happy to make tailored itinerary suggestions and help you book activities.
In addition to running a first class bed and breakfast service, Dani and Cameron also offer a series of catered guided walking holidays throughout the year for that extra special experience of the spectacular Scottish Highlands. Please call us on +44 1397 712452 to find out more information about our guided walking holiday packages.
Stylish and comfortable accommodation
Distant Hills Guest House is a large bungalow set in its own spacious grounds and offers seven individually designed comfortable stylish bedrooms all with en-suite shower rooms and colour flat-screen televisions. There is a choice of double or twin bedded rooms and each has a hospitality tray and a luxury range of soaps, shampoos and shower gels. Luxury continues with fabulous soft white bath sheets and towels with lots of other little touches.
Unfortunately, there is no family room at Distant Hills so we welcome children 12 years old and over and thereby offer a relaxed and peaceful place for singles, couples and older families.
Bright and spacious guest lounge
To help you relax and unwind there is a large bright south-facing guest lounge with comfy sofas and armchairs overlooking the garden. The space is perfect for planning the next day’s adventures, chatting with your travelling companions, making new friends with other guests or seeking a quiet moment for your own reflection.
We have a fully licensed bar stocked with a small range of locally crafted beers, whiskies, gins, wine, mixers and soft drinks. We also offer tasty charcuterie sharing platters in the evening on request.
Delicious gourmet style breakfast
The pleasant dining room offers good home cooking prepared from traditional Scottish ingredients and some which are a little more unusual. Our ingredients are locally sourced where possible. The breakfast menu offers at least three main meal options as well as porridge made with Scottish oats and a fresh fruit buffet to set you up for a full day's walking or touring in the Highlands.
Beautiful secluded garden with stream and small woodland
Our colourful and spacious garden is a real joy on a sunny day offers an opportunity to wander beside the stream with a pleasant outlook to the distant hills of the Grey Corries and Aonach Mor. You can also sit under the shady arbour and enjoy a cool drink while watching the birds or perhaps you might like to play a game of croquet.
Easy parking and transport
The guest house has a large, free private car park and for those arriving on the West Highland railway line, the train station lies in the middle of the village. We are happy to transfer guests to and from the station or the bus stop. We also provide complimentary transfers from/to Gairlochy if you are walking the Great Glen Way.
Free wifi throughout the property and garden
The Spean Bridge and Roy Bridge areas have a number of restaurants and hotels offering a wide range of cuisine to suit everyone's taste and pocket. Several are within 5 minutes walk. Fort William is also only a short drive away and offers a wide variety of restaurants, fast food and take-away options.
