Our visit to Fort William was rather forced upon us when my husband took ill and was admitted to the Bedford Hospital. I was left with a car and a motorhome which were parked in a town car park. The hospital was extremely helpful in trying to locate a Caravan Park for me and I was unbelievably lucky to be sent to Lochy Holiday Park. I had to drive the car out to the Park as they do not accept telephone bookings, but the welcome I received and the concern shown was outstanding. We have had the motorhome for only a few months and I was worried because I had never driven it or set it up on site before, however, the charming lady on Reception called the wonderful Dennis who was despatched with me in my car to drive the motorhome back to the Park where he pitched it on a hardstanding pitch, big enough to take both the motorhome and the car. When I arrived back at the Park in the evening, I collected the keys from Reception (which is open until about 10pm every night – how good is that) and Dennis came along to ensure I was able to connect electricity, gas, etc. The following day he got the TV up and working for me too. I never did find out the names of the other 3 very helpful and charming people who manned Reception, but they too went above and beyond the call of duty. Each day they were keen to know how my husband was progressing, stressing that he was in an excellent hospital (he was) and offering reassurance at every turn. I ended up having to stay 5 nights before he was transferred to a hospital nearer where we live. I will never forget the help I received from complete strangers at a difficult time. As well has having the best owners/wardens Lochy is a beautiful site, nestled as it is in the sight of Ben Nevis with easy access to Fort William. It is very well maintained and the toilet/shower blocks were spotless, laundry facilities were first class and the shop was so well stocked. When my husband has recovered we will certainly be visiting this 5 star ++ site again.
