We were delighted to discover this outstanding bed-and-breakfast establishment on the outskirts of Fort William, run with great flair by Joan and John Campbell. A ten-minute walk from the town centre brings you to this late Victorian house, set in pretty terraced grounds overlooking Loch Linnhe. There's the option of staying in the Terrace Suite in the main building, or in their new Garden Suite - both offering the visitor tranquil privacy with lovely views over the garden and Loch Linnhe.

A feminine touch is distinctly in evidence in the immaculate interior, which is decorated with admirable taste and flair for matching fabrics with furnishings and fittings. First glimpsed, you might expect a stand-offish 'don't touch' approach from the owners, but nothing could be further from the truth at The Grange. Joan Campbell, responsible for the decoration, is naturally easy-going, with a great sense of hospitality. 

Both suites are superbly, and individually, decorated and furnished, their bathrooms lavish and luxurious - it all comes as rather a surprise. A delightful place.
