Fort William is a town in the western Scottish Highlands, on the shores of Loch Linnhe. It’s known as a gateway to Ben Nevis, the U.K.’s highest peak, and Glen Nevis valley, home to Steall Falls. The nearby Nevis Range Mountain Resort has ski runs and forest trails. In the town centre, the West Highland Museum focused on regional life and history. To the northeast, Ben Nevis Distillery explores whisky production.

Alexandra Hotel

Part of the very fabric of Fort William since 1876, the Alexandra Hotel provides traditional Scottish Hospitality at its best. Situated in a great location everything is close by and whether it’s shopping in the High Street, catching a bus or taking a train to explore the spectacular local area, you’ll find the Alexandra Hotel is the perfect choice.

This deceptively large hotel boasts 93 bedrooms. Due to the age and nature of this grand old building all bedrooms are individual in size and shape but all have as standard - en-suite bathrooms,  television, hairdryer, direct dial telephone and tea and coffee making facilities. There are a large selection of room types available, including Family Rooms, and some of our rooms even have a view of Loch Lihnne.

Dine in the light and airy Linnhe Restaurant and enjoy a 3-course table d’hote set menu (with some tasty daily-changing, freshly made, supplement dishes to tempt you) with wines from around the world to compliment your meal.
