Quality accommodation in peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is equipped to a high standard with everything you need and more. It is in a fantastic location looking across loch Linnhe towards Fort William and Ben Nevis beyond. The foot passenger ferry a short walk from the cottage is a great way to travel to the town. There are numerous things to do/places to visit in the area including train & boat trips through gorgeous glens & lochs.

Magnificent little cottage in a superb location.

The cottage is immaculate and very well equipped with spectacular views over the loch to Fort William and Ben Nevis.A drive over to the Isle of Mull to visit Tobermory was most enjoyable as was the Great Glen Gondola ride up to the top of the mountain.Hope to return here very soon.

A beautiful location for this very well maintained, clean and homely cottage. Warm, comfortable with everything we could need to make our stay relaxing. Quiet but an easy drive to local attractions and shops. The owner was extremely helpful and easy to deal with, very prompt reply to our enquiry. Highly recommended!
