“Nice little B&B”
Reviewed August 24, 2008

This is a lovely little B & B on the southern road into Fort William. It's got great views out onto the Loch, although it's slightly out of town.
The rooms are a little old fashioned (not that that's a problem) but the breakfast was great, and the rates reasonable.

Alt-an is a great little B'n'B on the outskirts of Fort William. My girlfriend and I stayed there for 4 nights over the Easter break. It makes a great base for exploring the highlands. Margaret was an excellent host and cooks a mean breakfast in the morning!

Myself and a mate came to Fort William to climb Ben Nevis after doing the other 2 peaks, Snowdon and Scafell Pike, so we only needed 1 nights stay. I booked Alt anLodge because it was more or less the first place i could find at short notice.

Alt an Lodge is on the right, on the main road coming into Fort William from the south. Its a small place with 3 rooms available and being on the side of the loch has beautiful views across the water.

Our room was a twin with a tv, tea and coffee making facilities, a wardrobe and draws for storage, it was very clean and very comfortable and with the added view over the loch through a large window couldn't really be beaten!

The shower room is large and modern and very clean.

Breakfast was the best!! Fresh strawberries and raspberries with a choice of yoghurt, cereals and of course a full english breakfast...or is that scottish breakfast! It has to be said that the cutlery is quite unusual!!

Overall this is a really lovely place to stay and I have no problems at all in recommending it, you really will not be disappointed.

We stayed at Alt-an Lodge for one night on 7 June 2006. The B&B is located on the main road into Fort William which runs alongside Loch Linhe. Although we arrived at lunchtime, Margaret the proprietor, allowed us into our room as it was ready. The view from the room was superb overlooking both the loch and the Ardgour mountains. The room was a nice size with the added bonus of having two chairs in the window so that the glorious view could be enjoyed in comfort. There is also a small seating area to the side of the bungalow, again with good views, which is excellent to take advantage of when the weather is good. The B&B has private parking and a garage available for bikes & skis etc. We walked along the lochside into the town of Fort William which was about a mile away. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to choose from and we opted to eat at the Ben Nevis Bar which was very busy but very good. Breakfast at the B&B was excellent and the dining room decorated with lovely Scottish momentoes. Breakfast was served on Rennie Mackintosh china which I was impressed with and the most unusual cutlery. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Alt-an Lodge if you are looking for a comfortable, reasonably priced B&B with stunning views.
