Torlundy House
Torlundy House is a family run Guest House located in the rural settlement of Torlundy some 3 miles (5 kilometres) from Fort William in the Highlands of Scotland. Your hosts, Michael and Maxean, have been providing B&B for 19 years in Torlundy. At this time we want to assure our guests that we have implemented enhanced cleaning and sanitisation procedures and as a result been certified as "Good to Go" under the UK wide scheme to reassure guests we are doing all we can to mitigate risk and prevent COVOD-19 entering our business and home. You can find full details of the action we are taking on our own website, or if you want to discuss anything further please telephone or email us. We have lived in Torlundy for nearly 20 years now so are very conversant with the area. We welcome you to our home nestling among Britain's highest mountains (a short distance away from Ben Nevis) and most spectacular scenery. Be prepared to spend more than a day here as there is so much to do and see no matter what weather we are having, and you will not tire of the people, culture or scenery. Many of our guests say that they wished they had stayed more than a couple of nights at our Guest House because they missed so many sights. Others return year after year and still find something new each visit. We are proud to be distinctly different to hotels, many of our guests prefer the more personal and relaxed atmosphere and genuine hospitality in a "home from home" without the formality and impersonal atmosphere many hotels have and you can expect some touches rarely found in hotels that we hope make you feel there is little else we could do for you. Perhaps the only thing you might miss is room service, but then with all there is to do why would you be in your room except to get a good night's sleep? VisitScotland have awarded Torlundy House 4 Star Gold Guest House status under their Quality Assurance Scheme and our breakfast menu holds the "Taste Our Best" award for it's use of locally produced and Scottish foods. Torlundy House has 3 double (king beds) ensuite rooms and a twin bed ensuite room. We can accommodate young adults over the age of 16 years.
