Afternoon high tea

The hotel is a Relais de Chateau which should say it all really : beautiful grounds, exemplary service, beautiful cakes and scones with a delicious array of teas. Not cheap, but... read more

What a place, just gets you thinking what it would really be like back in them days. Defiantly worth a visit if you are in the area. Also there is a sneaky geocache in the area.😀

Feels very atmospheric walking through a deserted ruin (there was nobody there when we visited), especially lovely walk from the centre of town along the loch.

It's a landmark and free attraction but was disappointed as could not relate it to much. Not much of a historical place to see

There is not much to do in Fort William itself, so it is for advantage, that you can do a short walk to Inverlochy castle along the lake. There are only castle walls, and the castle itself is quite small, but it is picturesque and worth visit.

Stopped here briefly and enjoyed the trip. Ruins that you can stop and wander around for 20 minutes. There's nothing nearby, just a nice stop off where you can read up in its history

Pleasant walk along the river from Fort William; although there's not much left of the castle, the information boards tell the story of the castle.

There is still quite abit to see at the castle. It's just off the road so it won't take you long but it's worth a visit. There are boards that give you some information about the castle.

Visited the castle on our way back to Glenfinnan, just the ruins of a castle and not much else to look at the info boards don't give you many details of the history of the place, which is a shame because i looked into the history of it later and you could make so much more from the site.

Lovely little walk around the castle ruins and down along the river. Parking is iffy but free and it is a good place to stretch your legs if you have been in a car for a bit of time.
