About Sharyn Morgan

The croft on which the holiday property has been built has been in my family for over 300 years, when the clearances took place from Ardgour.

Sharyn Morgan purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Sharyn Morgan chose Fort William & Lochaber

This lodge has been purpose built for holiday lets and so has everything you will need for your holiday.

What makes this chalet unique

The view from the lounge and bedrooms are, I think, the best in Fort William, and many of our guests agree.

Owner's Response: I'm not sure how close to the loch you were expecting but it is only about 50m walk. Hardly false advertising

Worth it

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay.

The children could play on the nearby shore and on the big meadow.

That there is no internet, did not bother us. Everything ran very uncomplicated.

Our stay at Otterbank Lodge

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and cosy lodge situated in a prime location. Lots to do in the area even if like us you are unable to climb mountains but we agree transport is required.

Thank you Sharyn.

Views and home made it easy to relax and enjoy the highlands

  • 5 of 5

The house made it easy to relax- from the luxiourious bathrooms to the deck overlooking the loche. We were surprised there was no wifi, but was glad to not have the distraction while enjoying our time there. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Excellent Cabin Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this cabin. The view was perfect and it was a close drive into Fort William, yet felt so remote and quiet.

Property was well maintained and very clean. I was very happy to see that essentials such as towels, tea, coffee, handwash etc. had been provided for the stay.

Sharyn was very quick at replying to all my messages.

Would definitely stay here again! :)

Fort William is the Outdoor Capital of the UK, situated in Lochaber. There are many things to see and do including skiing, hill walking, cruising, mountain biking, fishing, an informative museum, great restaurants and live music in the bars. Gorgeous beaches at Arisaig just an hours drive away. Take the steam train to Mallaig in the summer months, or a cruise on Loch Linnhe to see the seals. There is a gondola taking you to the top of Aonach Mhor for magnificent views. Glenfinnan is 20 minutes away where the Bonnie Prince Charles monument stands at the head of Loch Sheil. where you can take a wildlife cruise and see Golden Eagles.

The world championship downhill mountain biking event is held at Lenachan every June, and the 6 day trials for trial bikes in May.

Glencoe is 30 minutes away for wonderful scenery and hillwalking. The National Trust for Scotland Glencoe gives an informative history of the geology of the area, as well as some history of the area. There is also a lovely museum in Glencoe and a nice walk around the Lochan.

Glen Nevis is a lovely place to walk and relax, and Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK is a challenging walk for those guests who are up for it.
