I have to say all the B&Bs we had stayed at so far had been excellent but it didn't stop us from being impressed with the Torlinnhe Guest House! Just check out the view from our breakfast table... I didn't take any photos of the breakfast spread but believe me, everything was perfect and very delicious.
Within 5 minutes drive to the Fort William town centre, this B&B has beautifully decorated rooms, speedy wifi and very very helpful and kind hosts. Before we arrived, I was asking for various details about Fort William, other places to see etc and each time I received excellent details promptly. Sue even sent us a detailed itinerary! There is nothing like local knowledge!
So we had a wonderful fun filled all weather day along the Fort William to Mallaig round trip!
We saw some castle ruins, a sailboat coming through a canal, climbed a really narrow monument tower (glenfinnan), visited the glenfinnan station and the viaduct (important history of the West Highland line and more recently Harry Potter!)...
We saw some pheasants roaming along the road side, some sheep on the road (literally!), some deers but we weren't quick enough with the camera, visited the gaunt ruins of Castle Tioram (stand on the tidal island of Eilean Tiora, said to be dating back to medieval time!).
Of course we talked to few more friendly locals again.
I probably have left off something... but we ended the day with a great meal sitting under an Aussie flag at the local pub prepping for the soccer World Cup.
And to top that off, we came back to our room with our cleaned laundry neatly folded on our bed! Yes the Torlinnhe Guest House offered laundry service for a small fee and Sue even kindly took good care of my knitted socks!
Whoa, I had hoped to cover the Isle of Skye in this post but I'd better do a separate post for that cause we have loads of pics from there too!!!
Until next post...
