The tranquillity of the countryside, but close to Fort William.
Our location is just 3 miles (5km) from the centre of Fort William, in the Western Highlands of Scotland. We strongly advise you have your own transport when staying at Torlundy House as the settlement has no local facilities. Without this you need to walk, use limited public transport or taxis.
The settlement of Torlundy is small and located on the main A82 road north of Fort William. Torlundy House is set in an area locally know as “Happy Valley”, about 1/3rd mile from the main A82 road. Just a couple of miles further up the road is the Nevis Range, the home of Mountain Bike fun, Skiing and the only enclosed Gondola in the UK which will whisk you up Aonach Mor. At the top of the Gondola ride is the Snow Goose centre with restaurant, bar and walks to two fantastic view points. Our other claim to fame is that Torlundy is also the location the world famous Inverlochy Castle Hotel.
Travel directions to help you find us are on our directions page and the link to the right. Our post code, PH33 6SN, when entered into your Satnav should get you to within sight of Torlundy House. We do have a sign on the road junction of the A82 and Happy Valley and once you turn into Happy Valley you just follow our signs.
To get the best from your time with us you really do need your own transport. A bus service takes you into Fort William or to the Nevis Range, however it does stops after about 19.00hrs. Torlundy does NOT have a shop, restaurant or pub. The nearest shop is at the Service Station about 1 mile from us. There is also a cash machine there. All restaurants, pubs, cafes, shops and other facilities are in Fort William, Caol, or Banavie. There is a good Taxi service between Torlundy and Fort William, we can call one for you if you wish. The fare is about £7.00 each way.
For walking, leave your car at Torlundy House and set off into the forest for miles of trails. You can access the North Face Route up Ben Nevis, it starts just a mile or so from us. There is also access to cycling in the forest and we have a fantastic cycle track from Torlundy into Fort William.
Please contact us prior to booking if you would like to clarify any matters in respect of our location, finding us, or how the lack of your own transport might affect you. We want you to enjoy your stay.
To tempt you, here is the view of Ben Nevis from our Breakfast Room! Not many B&Bs have this view at breakfast time.
Our Breakfast Buffet
We source as much of our food locally and of Scottish provenance. In season it is difficult to beat Scottish berries.
