Banavie, FORT WILLIAM, PH33 7LY
The historic Caledonian Canal and Neptune's Staircase, the famous flight of eight locks, runs right beside this modern hotel and pub. On clear days it has panoramic views towards Ben Nevis, best savoured from the Upper Deck lounge bar and the bedrooms. Food, served in the lounge bar, the new Moorings Café and bistro and the fine-dining Neptunes Restaurant, features local fish and seafood, with other choices such as steak and ale pie, and rib-eye of Highland beef. There is access to the canal towpath from the gardens.
