Tucked away on it’s own private grounds, The Grange occupies a wonderful position overlooking Loch Linnhe. Peaceful, quiet and serene, yet only 10 minutes walk from the heart of Fort William. Log fires, crystal, fresh flowers, antiques & loch views all add to the charm of this luxury Bed and Breakfast, which, combined with good food and a warm welcome, make this a very special place to stay. The Grange offers truly exceptional B&B accommodation in a lovingly restored Victorian House. Previous winners of Scottish Thistle award and AA Inspectors Choice, The Grange holds a 5 star Gold rating from the Scottish Tourist Board. In 2010, The Grange was also chosen by Fodor’s as a top establishment, and granted a gold star in their guidebooks and website.

On The Map: Fort William sits at the head of Loch Linnhe, and the foot of the Great Glen and snow-peaked Ben Nevis. The major A82 road runs through town connecting it with Glasgow to the south & Inverness to the northeast.
Fort. William got its name from the original fort built here in 1650 to keep the Highland clans in order. It’s a convenient touring base for the Northwest of Scotland, and a popular hub for walkers, mountaineers, and scenery lovers of every type. Its appeal is not that of a destination town, but rather its location to some of the most stunning natural beauty in Scotland. Ben Nevis, Scotland’s highest, and most rugged is the most obvious draw, but it’s certainly not all. The West Highland Museum on Cameron Square exhibits the 18th century “Secret Portrait of Prince Charles.” This was done when all paintings of Stuarts were completed in obscure swirls so the viewer didn’t get into trouble for having any connection, at all, to the Stuart side of the Royal family. Just northeast of town is the acclaimed “Treasures of the Earth,” one of Europe’s finest collections of crystals and gemstones. The “Underwater Center,” on the banks of Loch Linnhe, is the world’s leading diving instruction and training center. Also north of town are the impressive ruins of Inverlochy Castle.
