The downfall of my Fort William life was that the wifi in the hostel was very unreliable the moment multiple people tried to connect. This made working in the evening a difficult task.
On the upside—every bar in town has free wifi!
So, naturally, I decided to test out the wifi of every bar in town (there are only 4, so it wasn’t too hard of a task). And it was all for work purposes of course. 😉
Here are my thoughts. xo
Volunteer Arms Bar
I’ll start with my least favorite first. The bar was nice, but it was 100% bar—no food and the clientele seemed of the older variety. I just didn’t seem to fit in.
The only downside to this bar, is the wifi was on the restaurant side and the restaurant was frequently full. I felt a little guilty sitting there for hours when tables were full. Bonus: for meals, this was one of the cheaper options.
The Grog & The Gruel
Great selection of craft beers, dogs allowed inside—which I loved, and the food was reasonably priced.
This was probably my favorite. The staff here were just so nice & actually asked about my work! Downside—for dinner, it’s one of the more expensive of the bunch. However, if you order of the lunch menu before 5pm, then it was reasonable.
