A fabulous, traditional stone built house circa 1878, located on the shore of Loch Linnhe in Fort William in the highlands of Scotland. Only a 5 min stroll into Fort William town centre. This is a quiet retreat from the tourist mad crowds of major U.K. cities, truly a delightful experience. We were two couples from west coast Canada stopping in Fort William for a planned excursion on the Jacobite Train Trip from Fort William to Mallig. We each booked a separate room with ensuite and were delighted with the accommodation and the way we were greeted by hosts Stuart and Lorna. The house has a great ambience, fine decor tastefully done and full of character. The village type town centre is a quick walk and the ruins of the old fort about another 10 minute walk away. From the common room facing the Loch you will take in spectacular views of the shoreline and surrounding terrain, simply beautiful and ever changing. We slept well on comfortable beds and our room on the ground floor was very quiet. Bathroom was clean, neat and hot showers with ample pressure. An area off the common room is designated for breakfast and again beautiful vistas of the Loch can be seen. Additionally, the breakfast was a treat, tasty, more than you will be able to eat and service was tops. Wifi was available and we had no difficulty picking up signal from our room or common room. In the evening we toured the town and a small historic church and ate at great food at the Grog and Gruel pub nearby. We appreciated the special touch Stuart and Lorna provided and the opportunity to see their cool kitchen and the huge stove they cook breakfast on for all their guests. Ample (Free) parking on gravel driveway beside the house was appreciated. This is a must stay location for a visit to Fort William especially for those inclined to enjoy the outdoors surrounding Fort William. We thought the price point was reasonable and extremely good value for the money spent. We strongly recommend this place to others.
