Rammy’s Halt Honesty Box

Whilst this isn’t a restaurant this is a great honesty box located in Inverroy, 15 minutes walk away. The goods in it change everyday but they are homemade and delicious! The box is a great place to stock up on fresh cakes and snacks before going out on you’re adventure. If you’re driving past you’ll see some small signs for it or if you plan on walking here are some directions. 1. Head to the main road. 2. When opposite the Stronlossit inn turn left. 3. Follow the pavement out of the village 4. When you reach the Inverroy sign cross to where the pavement continues on the left and soon after this you should see a driveway with the box pictured above.

Ben Nevis Bar & Restaurant

Located 25 minutes from The Little Houses the Ben Nevis Bar & Restaurant is on Fort William’s Highstreet. It’s a great place for kids as it has a very tasty kids menu which adults can order too. It has views over the loch and mountains. It is also dog friendly. We recommend getting a bus or parking in Morrisons carpark (it’s free for 3 hours) where you can easily walk to the high street or if you want to pay for closer parking there is lots of parking next to the Highstreet. If you come at a busy time of year or with a large group we recommend booking in advance. Click on the image above for a link to their website!
