Short break to Fort William using the Caledonion Sleper.

My wife has long wanted to use the Calendonian Sleeper and we thought we could use it as a base for a short break. Is anyone able to offer us any suggestions?

    Where do you want to go?
    Where are you travelling from?
    If you are travelling to Scotland then I can suggest Pitlochry for a short break. It is a lovely old Victorian town with lots of things to see and do.
    What do you like doing?
    Are you walkers?
    Can you offer any further information to make it easier for someone to suggest somethings for you to do?

    Best regards

    Subject to the Government granting us our freedom I have got as far in the planning stage of booking a berth on the Caledonian Sleeper and I'm now looking for accommodation at either a small hotel or a B & B for two nights, 18th May 2021 and 19th May 2021 within walking distance from the Railway Station at Fort William.

    Hi @BML

    Thank you for your message and its lovely to hear you want to visit Scotland.

    All our accommodation is on our website here and you can filter your search to suit your needs. However, if you are putting in certain dates they may not come up as available as some places may still have dates blocked off and are maybe waiting for official dates for reopening.

    Our icentres are all still closed at the moment, but we are working from home and are accessing our emails. You could email Fort William and they could give you specific local information and know where the best hotel and B&B would be and who are already taking bookings etc. Their email address is [email protected] 

    I hope this is of help to you and we look forward to welcoming you to Scotland when restrictions allow :smile: 

    Please let us know if you need any other information

    Kind Regards
