Travel Blogs from Fort William

Luss to Glencoe

A travel blog entry by cdonaldson


... was stunning, but there were few opportunities to stop! When there was a good spot, it would be filled with tourist coaches! Saw one coach from Europe, left hand drive, passengers getting out of doors on right, almost into oncoming traffic! As your trying to drive out of these lookouts they just walk in front of you, looking at you blankly. I did find that to avoid them getting in your photos you just need to walk into the scene a bit. Often ...

Day 9: Fort William to Mallaig

A travel blog entry by inhissteps


... prettiest train rides around. It lived up to it's expectations! The ride was only one hour and fifteen minutes. The scenery was beautiful with lots of lochs, trees, mountains and hills. We took a ton of pictures. Mallaig was our destination for the day. When we arrived we ate at a nice tea room in town. They only served Scottish food, which was interesting. Todd had a chicken and bacon club. It sounds normal, but it had slaw, ham as bacon, strong cheese and weird seasoning in it. ...

side in Oban…the obvious way to wear on tiredness is to create more of it.The afternoon was spent at a whisky distillery doing a tour.

    we were up bright and early to make our way to the Highlands. After sayimg our goodbyes to Annette and Jessica Bab took the wheel again until we reached Loch Lomond. We wandered through the huge visitor centre and began to appreciate the beauty of the loch and the surrounding hills. Aimee took over the driving and we all marvelled at the beauty of the great mountains covered with snow with the ...

      Historical Traveler Reviews The Lime Tree Fort William

      Good Value - Clean, Inexpensive and Friendly


      My partner and I spent an evening at the Lime Tree on our way between Glasgow and Skye. The small, well-kept home was easy to find on the main route into town and a good location at the end of the main street. The bedroom was very large per Scottish standards and the queen bed was comfortable albeit a little soft. The bathroom was adequate although we had trouble with water running from the shower onto the carpeted bathroom floor.

      Very satisfied


      Superb B&B. Well priced, large and comfortable room with superb view to sea. Food very well presented and beautifully cooked. I would recommend this place to anyone. We had an evening meal which was better than anything we had in restaurants in the town. The breakfasts are large and extremely tasty too. Owners very friendly and genuinely nice people. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

      Mr & Mrs Peters

      Fantastic bed and breakfast


      We stayed a night at this b&b before travelling to Skye and it was fantastic. It is a beautiful building and our room was lovely with an en suite and views over the loch.

      The hotel room had lovely decor and also nice dressing tables. The bed was most comfortable and we enjoyed a lovely cooked Scottish breakfast in the morning. This was cooked perflectly and wasn't drenched in oil as per previous reviews!

      Nothing seemed like too much trouble for David the owner and he went out of his way to talk about both the local area and his passion for art.

      Great Place, Terribly uncomfortable bed


      The views from the Lime Tree were incredible but unfortunately it did not make up for the bed. My wife and I just got back from a 9 day trip to Scotland and while the location, view, and owners were all top notch the uncomfortable bed was so bad that it spoiled it for us.

      Good Luck


      Good luck making a reservation, I have been phoning and emailing for over a week and have had no response. Not exactly a very professional way in which to run a business !

      Close to the Harry Potter's Railway Line


      Visited on 28/09/2004

      Warm & Friendly -- with Terrific Views of the Sea and Mountains!

      Great Scottish Breakfast!

      Wonderful Scottish Oatmeal!!!

      Short Walk from the Railway Station, very close to the main shopping street!

      Highly Recommend!!!!

      Rode the Fort Willian - Mallaig Steam Train used in the Harry Potter Films!

      The BIGGEST Little Place in Scotland


      We honeymooned in Scotland and this was the greatest place that we stayed. David and Charlotte are outstanding hosts. Their home is beautiful and comfortable and David's paintings are magnificent.

      Breakfast was the best in Scotland! We can't wait to return someday!

      We cannot wait to stay at the Lime Tree again


      We have just returned from our honeymoon trip to Scotland and our favorite lodging was found at the Lime Tree Studio Gallery with Rooms.

      Top Place, Great Accomodation, Stunning Art


      The Limetree is a brilliant place to stay, just at the foot of Ben Nevis on the banks of Loch Linnhe. It is close enough to the town's high street to easily walk, the daily piper's on the High street are great to watch, the pubs and restuarants are all very good too.David the owner is also a fabulous artist, having pictures in many galleries across the country, when you visit the Lime Tree, his work will strike you straight away. I have one of his spellbinding pictures in the lounge which is often commented on.Without doubt I will use the Limetree everytime I visit Fort William. MW.
