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

El lugar

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.

Where do I begin? There is no way to write this review and not recognize that your stay on the Orlik will be expertly hosted by four hosts, Michael, Lorna, Belle, and Fergus. Michael and Lorna provided us with great conversation, a couple glasses of wine, good stories, and even helped us hold an on-deck impromptu jam session when we mentioned our love of music! Belle and Fergus provided us with tail wags, cuddles, and the "comforts of home" - as we were missing our own furry friends! These two dogs are social without being overwhelming, and yet, made our stay so fabulous! (Says the girl who loves nothing more than a great dog hanging by her side.) The dogs are not allowed below deck, and Michael and Lorna are keenly aware of guests comfort levels with the dogs...we had to keep asking for them to be allowed to hang with us! The Orlik is moored in a beautiful location, and we were fortunate to see the lovely summit of Ben Nevis during our stay. We had an opportunity to watch the locks of Neptune's Staircase in action one morning when a vessel went thru the eight locks. The engineers at the locks were easy going, gave us a whole educational run down on the system, and answered all of our questions. The Orlik is a lovely space. The accommodations are tight, you're on a boat so expect this, clean, and comfortable. The shower is fabulous! Our breakfast each morning was generous and tasty, with croissants straight out of the oven. Thank you, Lorna! Staying with these four hosts is like joining a family. They are excellent communicators, before and during our stay, and laughed easily as we hung out each night. We had a fabulous time, and would welcome an opportunity to stay with this crew again someday!

We had the most fabulous time staying with Lorne and Michael onboard the Orlik. Comfortable ship-board accommodations, and the best shower in all of Scotland! Breakfast was a treat with delicious porridge, baked goods and fresh fruit. We adored Belle and Fergus, the two seaworthy dogs that shared their tail-wags with us, almost as much as the late night chats over a glass of wine - I think we nearly solved all of the world's problems. Looking forward to staying onboard again soon!

We stayed two Nights on the boat with these lovley hosts and their dogs. It was an adventure and we really enjoyed every second of it. on our last day, they took us out for a short trip to see some seals. It was just amazing! I highly recommend this host to everybody who is looking for something special and unforgettable.

This bnb is on a beautiful boat with great views of fort William and Ben Nevis. Michael and Lorna made us feel very at home, and we adored dogs fergus and belle. The Orlik is a lovely boat, and perfect location for our trip up the Ben. Breakfast was delicious, as well as whisky.

Our family of four had a great experience onboard Orlik. We were in Fort William for the mountain bike championships but would have loved more time to see the surrounding area. We have decided we'd like to come back for another stay onboard and explore further. Michael and Lorna made us feel at home from the very start. We enjoyed passing time round the table with so many interesting stories to hear and the bedrooms were exactly as described, fitted to a high standard and very comfortable. Our boys loved playing with the dogs and it's lucky Fergus wasn't stowed away to come home with us. If he ever needs a home when you're on holiday you know where we are! Breakfast was a real highlight too with plenty to choose from and very relaxed. We look forward to our return trip.

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.
