... We dropped the car back at our accommodation and at midday we walked to the train station to catch a train to Mallaig for the 84 mile round trip to this coastal fishing village which is also the location of the car ferry terminal to Skye. There are 2 options for a train to Mallaig, one being a steam train (used in the Harry Potter films) and the other being the local diesel train. Not being ...
... little, except parts of the exterior is from the original Viking period, it contains many very interesting relics from earlier periods of history. The inside is fully furnished and you can meander through all the rooms climbing up and down circular stone staircases. It was freezing walking the grounds of the castle but well worth the visit. Our favourite castle so far. From here we headed to the bridge linking Skye with the mainland. Skye is a very large island and as it ...
Have returned from our day on Iona - wonderful. Iona was the centre of Irish Monasticism for four centuries. The Iona Community runs 3 residential centres - 2 on Iona and another on the Isle of Mull. John Bell, songwriter of many hymns used by the UCA, is a member of the Iona Community, and visits the island from time to time. We were on a large ferry by ...
A day of driving through the rain. We decided to take a longer route via Stirling rather than head straight for Fort William. I was particularly interested in visiting Stirling Castle. I had seen pictures of this imposing castle high on a hilltop and read about its bloody history and to visit would just involve a short detour. It didn't disappoint, even though the rain continued and we were forced to don not only our waterproof ...

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 !
Close to the Harry Potter's Railway Line

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.
