Aboard our boat "Orlik" we offer one of the best quality conversion accomodation for a genuine fishing trawler, Our double queen size beds are quite unusual on converted trawler yachts but we have gone the extra mile to make you feel relaxed aboard.
We have two guest cabins each with a double queen size bed.
Our prices are on a per cabin basis starting from £120 per cabin per night per cabin
Orlik our converted trawler Yacht is moored IN THE SEA ( depending on the weather) just off the west end of the Caladonian Canal looking onto Ben Nevis or at the top of Neptunes Staircase looking onto Ben Nevis.
When we are anchored in the sea we ferry our guests onboard using our tender boat.
We can take on short trips using the tender boat if the weather is good.
From here we can cruise along the canal for 5 miles to Gairlochy and into Loch Lochy when the weather is good. Orlik has two double cabins each with its own private shower room. Orlik is a real deep sea fishing trawler that fished in the northern North Sea going as far north as Iceland in the Summer months, this little ship is built fro solid oak and weighs in at 80 tons, powered by an authentic Gardner engine and having been converted to a real home on the water at a cost of over £300,000 she offers a very unique Bed & Breakfast of the water that has the facility to mover around when required. The raileway station and bus stop are 5 minutes walk where you can go to Fort William (2 miles) or there is the option to travel to Mallaig on the famous "Harry Potter" train route. From our mooring at the top of Neptunes Staircase is a great walking base whether you prefer walking on the level to explore the canal or head for the glens and mountains, or just walk to Fort William which is 3 miles on foot. Here is the start of the Great Glen Way.
I am skipper owner of the converted trawler Orlik which fished in the North Sea in the 1960s fishing as far North as Iceland in the Summer months. I spent 20 years fishing on a similar boat to Orlik and now look after our guests in much calmer water in Scotland.
