Achintore Road, Fort William, Highlands, PH33 6RQ

    The Lime Tree An Ealdhain is a 3* small hotel with an award winning restaurant and a 4* arts venue set in the heart of Fort William - the Outdoor Capital of the UK.

    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. 
    Every room is spacious and relaxing, all rooms are en suite, some with views of the sea and the hills beyond.

    What makes Lime Tree a special is it's warm and welcoming staff, stylish and quirky decor, log fires and its art gallery which exhibits paintings by contemporary artists and public exhibitions from national collections and archives. Most recently the gallery hosted Matisse: Drawing with Scissors from the Hayward Gallery Touring, Southbank Centre London.

    The restaurant offers an intimate dining experience, with an open kitchen and menus boasting locally sourced fresh produce. Please contact us to make a booking. If you'd like to view some sample menus you can do so via our website

    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.'
