Looks a bit dull but it was actually a very nice morning.

I am gluten free. Where can I stay near Fort William?

Let us know your dietary requirements and we will look after you. We have been running Distant Hills Guest House since 2006 so there is not much we have not seen.
As regards in-room snacks Crimbles are our gluten free choice (because we like them as well)

Gairlochy locks on the Caledonian canal

This is the swing bridge at Gairlochy which allows traffic to pass over the Caledonian Canal.  Its a very scenic area with locks,  moorings,  a pepper pot lighthouse and great views of Ben Nevis and the Nevis Range.  Great spot for a picnic at one of the numerous tables.

Always looking to improve our guest house in Spean Bridge

We are always looking for ways to improve our guest house for the benefit of guests. One such improvement this season is our Tencel mattress toppers which will soften the bed surface but because it's Tencel it should not make the bed too warm.
