The house is a pretty two-story with large windows at the front of the house and a beautifully landscaped yard. The house sits on a corner lot and its beauty makes it stand out in the neighborhood.
The bedrooms were decorated very nicely with nice furniture and extras such as trouser press, tea and coffee tray, TV, hairdryer, etc. The room was furnished with pretty dark wood furniture. The individual pieces looked like very nice antiques. There was a pretty dressing table with a bench and two chairs on either side. Our bed was a double with beautiful, colorful linens.
Breakfast was served in a cozy breakfast room located at the front of the house with views of the Loch. There were individual tables available for each room. My husband had a full-Scottish breakfast which consisted of beans, toast, bacon, fried eggs, sausages and mushrooms. I had scrambled eggs and toast. There are other options available if you are not up for the full, greasy breakfast. The room was nicely decorated in burgundy and green.
It is in a nice location being right off of the main road near the yacht club (on Loch Linnhe). The house is about a five-minute walk to Fort Williams' town center. The owners, Jim and Susan Smith, were very hospitable . See their website at Lawriestone Guest House.
