Whether you choose to relax at The Lime Tree, enjoy the spectacular mountains and landscape, bag a Munro, tackle world championship mountain bike track at Nevis Range, take the Jacobite steam train on the Harry Potter road to the Isles, or choose to immerse yourself in the Art culture or events at the Lime Tree, this family owned hotel in Fort William will provide the idea base to explore all Lochaber has to offer. In the centre of Fort William at the west end of the High Street is the former 19th century Macintosh Manse. A total refurbishment has created individual accommodation of the highest standard.
Every room is spacious and relaxing, all rooms are en suite, some with views of the sea and the hills beyond.
The Lime Tree has a newly licensed restaurant with Loch side garden sun deck and ample private parking.
What makes Lime Tree a special place to stay is that it's the home of a superb new art gallery offering shows from the National Art Collections and Contemporary Art exhibitions.
The Lonely Planet Guide said of the Lime Tree: 'All its stylish, comfortable rooms are decorated with high quality paintings, drawings and watercolours of the Highland landscapes. The Gallery downstairs sells some of this work. And if that is not enough to convince you, their breakfast is easily the best in town, if not in Scotland.'
Trip Advisor web site quotes the Lime Tree as: 'Well priced, large and comfortable rooms with superb views to the sea. Food is very well presented and beautifully cooked. I would recommend this place to anyone. We had an evening meal which was better that 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 our stay.'
