A HelpX assignment on the Atlantic coast near the Isle of Rhum (Rum) and Eigg (Egg). Josh and Sophie have taken on this hotel and they are approaching their second season, expecting their second child, and frantically doing up the Hotel as well. Josh's mum and dad, Mike and Shelia are also there most days all day pitching in. Both very talented people with tools and a sharp eye for detail.

Monday (20th) this morning we headed to the supermarket to collect some supplies for the next few days in loch lochy. We got a bus to loch lochy which only took about 50mins, winding along through the mountains and lochs, stunning views again! We are staying at Great Glen Backpackers but when we got there it looked abandoned! We started to stress as it's a tiny town, well no shops just a few houses and plenty of walking tracks but after 10mins someone turned up to let us in ...

... go along the other side of the canal and end up in South Laggan where there was a hostel for the night. The rain spit all morning. It wasn't too cold at first and the trail was flat and right along the canal. It was beautiful and the canal was full of boats (more boats that I expected anyway. One every five or so minutes.) There were other walkers, bikers, canoers; lots of activity. I was making about 2.5 miles per hour.
I made it to Kyl Lock sooner than ...

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.
