Fab Little Place!
Neil and his farmhouse were very accommodating and welcoming. Breakfast was lovely and presented beautifully. Cannot fault this stay, apart from the road works on the road to get to the farm.

Relaxing Home With A Great View And Amazing Breakfasts
Comfortable rooms in a good location, just down the road from Spean Bridge where there are restaurants, cafe and a local convenience shop. Book ahead for dinner. The house is spacious with a lovely breakfast room/lounge. Neil, the host cooks up a fantastic breakfast, and has some great stories to tell. Thank you Neil.

Highland Oasis
Achnabobane Farmhouse is in a wonderful location.Stunnng views of the Nevis range let you know you are well and truly in The Highlands ! We stayed there as our base for the Jacobite railway but it’s also perfect as a launch point for doing Ben Nevis . An ideal place for a two night stay.The property is clean and the host is welcoming ,friendly and can supply you with loads of local information and the breakfasts are generous with lovely homemade sausages , jams and is truly an oasis in The Highlands.

Achnabobane Farmhouse
Our stay at Achnabobane Farmhouse was excellent. The rooms were lovely, beds very comfortable, and china mugs on the drinks and snack table.

Neil made us welcome and his breakfast ( with eggs from his own hens) delicious.

I would highly recommend this B&ab.

Very Good
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.

Pleasant Stay At Achnabobane Farmhouse
Very welcoming and good value accommodation. Host was friendly, informative and the breakfast was outstanding. Purchased some of the home made marmalade as it was lovely. Will definitely stay again the next time we are in the area.

Super clean and cosy. The owner is amazing and I loved the bleating sheep and chicken in the garden. My room had a stunning view and they also sell eggs and homemade jams. Could not be happier.

Have You Met Neil?
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 drove us 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.
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
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.😊

A Little Slice Of Heaven
We were extremely happy with our stay. The house and gardens were beautiful and the views were out of this world. The breakfast was very nice, even the sausages were homemade by Neil’s fair hands. I would definitely recommend this place. It was easy to find and in easy reach of local attractions

Great Stay In A Quiet Place
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.

My room was very comfortable and the views from the bedroom window were stunning.

Neil was a good host and very informative and a good conversationalist albeit a bit of cheeky chap thrown in for good measure.

Lovely breakfast.

Great Stay
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.
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
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.
