If you want a change from haggis and seafood, visit Sugar and Spice. This unassuming family business has grown to be a favourite among Fort William locals for its authentic Thai food. Curries and stir fries come with a choice of vegetable, chicken or king prawn, so cater for all tastes. The décor is in keeping with the Thai theme but remains subtle and minimalist.
