Huntingtower lodge is beautifully located at the shore of Loch Linnhe close to Fort William. We had booked the Waterfall Suite, which has two large rooms, a modern bathroom and a storage room for the wardrobe and a fridge. Two large windows in the living room offer a beautiful view to Loch Linnhe. In the bedroom, you have a nice look to the garden and theoretically to the waterfall, which wasn't there as we stayed during a very dry period with nice weather, which we we clearly preferred to the waterfall. While the lodge is only 20 m away from A82, it's still quiet in the rooms even if the window is open.
Jackie and Chris are very friendly hosts and do everything for making your stay pleasant. While the lodge has only 3 bedrooms, they still have a nice breakfast buffet and Jackie offers several different hot breakfasts which you can choose from. We tried several and all tasted very good. From the breakfast room, you have also a beautiful view on the lake. Each night we found some delicious home-made sweets in our room. As the lodge is located outside Fort William, you should go there by car, then it's a good starting point for trips in the area of Fort William. The nicest B&B during our Scotland tour this summer.
The only "but" is a relatively high price, but we think it was worth it.
