... were forecast. When a trampers asked about the risk a park ranger suggested that he walk with taller people to avoid getting struck. Breakfast was taken at a great cafe in Glencoe Village where they were playing Dougie McPean music. The road through Glen Coe itself was spectacular. This was another memorable journey. We had lunch at ...
... Yum! Entering the moor we were treated to another radical change in scenery. The area here is filled with small hills and is very marshy. There are no communities in that area and it is an empty landscape. Apparently the army uses it to practice camouflage and you could be looking at men out there any never know it. We then traveled onto Stirling and had the option to hike up to the stop of the William Wallace memorial. We made the short climb ...
This morning we said our temporary goodbyes to the castle rock hostel and heading on our 3 day Skye High haggis tour. The first stop was in the beautiful town of Dunkeld where we visited a old cathedral on the river Tay. Continuing north led us to Kelliecrankie, a gorge that was the site of a Jacobite and red coats battle. At this gorge it is said that a Jacobite solider was able to leap it's width (18ft) and escape to the ...
... first of our tables! We ate at a different restaurant the following evening. No wi-fi in the rooms & some folks couldn't even get in reception. Us baby-boomers like our email at the end of the day. Everyone one of us had a small computer--lots of iPads. It was the least favorite hotel of our stay.
More about Highlands next entry. Pictures to come soon!!
... we were in Scotland we would choose to spend at least one night in this area to fully enjoy its beauty... and maybe hike up into the hills. But, we knew today was a huge time-crunch with all the places we wanted to see. So a comfortable picnic turned into more of a grab-a-bite-and-go affair. Within minutes, we were heading north on A82 up towards the Great Glen Way.
The road we were traveling followed the coast up the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Lime Tree Fort William
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.
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.

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.
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 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 !

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 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.
