Lochview is situated on the hillside with panoramic views across Loch Linnhe. It's a 10 min walk downhill into the centre of Fort William where you will find a range of pubs and restaurants. We offer quiet, comfortable rooms in the guest house, many with loch views. There is a guest lounge and garden room to enjoy our fantastic views and if you prefer self catering we have a garden apartment too.

We spent a little more to book a loch view room and weren't disappointed. The window view was like a painting framing the view. The room was well appointed and comfortable and my only grip would be a few flights of stairs to lug our bags, but this is to be expected. Breakfast

Karen was a very nice host! Excellent homemade breakfast, perfect view in the nice breakfast room. I definitely recommend it ! Definitely a good stop at Fort William. Feeling close to nature and still next to all the restaurants. I recommend the cosy Garrison West pub.

Hello You can walk to the visitor centre to start the walk up Ben Nevis but it's quite a distance so you might want to get a taxi. It's about a 10min walk into town from our house but it's a steep walk back up so a taxi would cost approx £5 per trip. There are buses and trains to get to other areas further afield but you will need to collect timetables for the planned times. We hope this helps Kind regards Karen

"Rooms at the front have a lovely view"
"Treat yourself to the suite!"
"There are a range of rooms inc 2 apartment/suite style rooms with sitting rooms. Nevis apartment room was good for an extended stay."
"Situated at the top of quite a steep hill (hence the fabulous views), so a car is essential unless you're feeling fit !"
"All rooms are quiet"
US$86 - US$151 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
