A warm highland welcome awaits you at Gowan Brae which was built at the turn of the 20th century and is situated on the hillside above the town overlooking Loch Linnhe and the Treislaig Hills.
We offer two double ensuite rooms and one twin room with private facilities (2 x single beds with bathroom outwith bedroom but for use by twin room occupants only.)
Parking is available in the two driveways adjacent to the house.

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.
Tour Operator Review:
"Our walkers love staying at Gowan Brae B&B in Fort William, Scotland. We know this because our walkers tell us all about it. From the moment they step through the door, they receive a warm welcome and are made to feel right at home. Scotland’s reputation for hospitality is built on people such as Jim and Ann and it is our pleasure to work with such a fine B&B owner."
Hillwalk Tours – Hiking the Great Glen Way
"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!"
Fort William High Street is only a three minute walk from Gowan Brae and this popular “Gateway to the Highlands” is favoured by many as a base from which to tour the West Highlands.
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 renowned restaurants - Crannog, Lime Tree and The Grog & Gruel.
