A Bed and Breakfast in Fort William
- Fort William
- 3 x Double
Ard Daraich was a stone croft lived in by the cobbler of Ardgour. It sits underneath an oak tree from which it takes its name. The connection with plant life continued when the house was bought by Constance Spry and was converted into a genteel holiday home for someone renowned for her flower arranging and cooking - for those of you who know the Constance Spry bible there is even a section of recipes prefaced with the Ard Daraich title. No doubt Mrs Spry was unable to give up gardening completely. Even when on holiday she planted the beginnings of a garden. Edith and David Maclaren bought the house in the late 1960â€™s and taking the Sprys as their beginning, continued to build the garden, informed by a passion for both plants and people. They were able to grow from seed, plants sent from all over the temperate world, eventually producing a collection that is still considered one of the best in this part of Scotland and visited by various International Horticultural Societies.

The Private House Stay's Guide
Fort William and the surrounding Lochaber area is the gateway to the real highlands of Scotland, served by an overnight sleeper service to London. The town itself is dominated by Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland which is a worthwhile expedition to climb on good paths. The town also marks the South-western entrance to the Caledonian canal that leads through Loch Ness to Inverness. There are many sporting estates around the area with fabulous hill-walking and other outdoor pursuits, the steam-train Jacobite 'Harry Potter' railway to Mallaig and the North end of the West Highland Way.
