“Trip to the Highlands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

What a lovely place to stay, just a moments walk from the waters edge and the town. Its a perfect base from which to explore the area. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left Joan made us feel very welcome. The room was great and we had a lovely view over the loch, breakfast was also good. We'd definitely stay here again. An extended thanks goes to Joan for going the extra mile and making the day we got engaged extra special.

Thanks

Laurence and Gem

The Grange never fails to delight. Owner Joan Campbell's warm hospitality, mouthwatering breakfasts, and flair for stunning interior design make The Grange the best place to stay from which to explore Lochaber. It is difficult to leave the wonderful views of Loch Linnhe from all the bedrooms, dining and sitting rooms and the garden, but it is equally delightful to return at night
to the deep comfort of the luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms, and the decanters of sherry!

Room Tip: All rooms have views over Loch Linnhe. The Rob Roy has the most wide-reaching views, and is where...

As seasoned travelers we have stayed in many wonderful establishments. The Grange has set a new standard for us. The setting is charming, and because of the elevation above Fort William, there is a wonderful view over Loch Linnhe. The 19th century home has been totally renovated and modernized with a designer's eye for decoration and a sybarite's concern for comfort. We stayed in the garden room which included a sitting room. The large bathroom boasted a Villeroy and Boch tub as well as a separate shower.

Joan Campbell is a marvelous hostess (she's been doing this for nearly 20 years) and serves a fabulous breakfast. We custom ordered the night before - porridge (comes with honey, cream and whiskey on the side - hadn't thought of whiskey with breakfast, but it was fun!), muesli, fruit in a tea/citrus broth, scottish pancakes, herring in a delightful cream sauce, homemade bread - all delicious.

We had only rationed one night in Fort William for this visit, but will surely stop again, if only for The Grange.

I am so happy that we found this B and B on Trip Advisor. All I can say is WOW. This was an extraordinary find. Do not hesitate, make your reservation early. Can we move in? Trust Joan when she makes a recommendation. She is very knowledgable about the area and restaraunts.

Room Tip: I saw all the rooms. Can't go wrong. I took pictures of all of them for decorating tips!

Going south now, back from the highlands, we had booked 2 nights in the grange. Joan welcomed us with some coffee and cookies.. After some info on our stay, she helped us immediately with the necessary bookings for dinner.

We had dinner at Russels's, a bit of a drive back to spean bridge, but good food and nice atmosphere, our 2nd night we ate at the lime tree, which was not bad, but nothing special either..

Our room at the Grange was lovely, had all what we needed for and gave us a nice view on the loch, joan's breakfast is delicious, we'll never forget the porridge with whisky.

Fort William itself, as a city, isn't really worthwhile a visit, but we followed the recommendations Joan gave us and went to visit Mull for a day, which turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip through Scotland.

We would certainly recommend this place to any one looking for a spotless B&B experience ..

We had the good fortune to spend 2 nights at the gorgeous 'The Grange,' Fort William - 2nd to 4th August 2013.
'The Grange' is situated one street back from the main road from the South into Fort William. The beautifully landscaped grounds mean that one has unobstructed views beyond the trees towards the Loch, without the aural or visual disruption of vehicles.
Our 'Rob Roy' room was beautifully decorated, with the most stunning views over Loch Linnhe. I was fascinated by the huge ancient double curved hung windows on the corner of our room. The Queen-sized bed was very comfortable, and piled high with gorgeous cushions. Our light-filled bathroom was large, and luxurious, with quality toiletries, and ample bench space.
'The Grange,' gives one the opportunity to 'live life,' amongst the pages of an interior design magazine.
Joan anticipates guests needs and desires, and has an obvious talent for hospitality, catering, and quality design.
On arrival, Joan welcomed us warmly, and settled us down in the lovely drawing room, with a tray of tea and coffee and delicious shortbreads, and provided wonderful advice about the best places to visit, and eat whilst in Fort William. Every one of Joan's recommendations enhanced our experience of Fort William.
Breakfast in the beautiful dining room with fireplace was fabulous. We loved Joan's presentation; a generous bowl of porridge, and an accompanying platter with small decanter of whisky, and bowls of brown sugar, and heavy cream. Joan also did fabulous things with port wine stewed fruits; apricots, prunes, pears, etc. The hot breakfast components were brilliantly executed as well.
I can't imagine a more splendid place to stay in Fort William.

We absolutely loved staying at The Grange. We had the most beautiful bedroom and bathroom, filled with Penhaligon products, and our room had a stunning view of the water.

Breakfast was delcious, complete with homemade bread and jam.
In my opinion it was more than a B&B and was certainly hotel standard.

Joan was also such a lovely host and she fitted everything in according to our plans.

Thank you!
