Crolinnhe Guest House is in the fortunate position of having elevated views over the picturesque Loch Linnhe, a Sea Loch following the line of the Great Glen Fault running 50 kilometres between Inverness on the northeast coast and the Firth of Lorne in the southwest.
Fort William lays at the northeast end of Loch Linnhe at the mouth of the River Lochy.
Loch Linnhe has an abundance of activities for you to participate in, from a relaxing cruise on “Souter’s Lass” which takes you from the town pier in Fort William southwards to Seal Island.
You can catch daily boat trips on the SeaXplorer and take in spectacular scenery including views of Ben Nevis, Glencoe and towards the Sound of Mull.
Explore the head of Loch Linnhe taking in the sights with a gentle stroll along Caol beach which has breathtaking views of Ben Nevis and Aonach Mor.
Visit Neptunes Staircase, a staircase of eight locks (Britain’s longest) that lifts boats 64 feet from the Caledonian Canal to Loch Linnhe, an amazing engineering feat designed by Thomas Telford in 1822.
The list is endless and there is no better fun than splashing about on the waters of Loch Linnhe.
