House in Stronchreggan, Treslaig, Nr. Fort William, Scotland - A Single Storey House, Sleeping 6, With Tranquil And Stunning Views Of Ben Nevis And Loch Linnhe

Dalendrien is a single storey house, sleeping 6, stunningly positioned on its own peninsula on the shoreline of Loch Linnhe. a long sea inlet running from the Isle of Mull inland to the slopes of Ben Nevis, and sits on the quiet north shore of the loch just off the scenic road which runs from Fort William to the remote Ardnamurchan Peninsula. It nestles in three acres of grounds with shoreline and slipway, some 25 miles from Fort William and 8 miles north of the Corran Ferry at Ardgour.

About the Owner

About the owner: I live in the south of England and love visiting my family's "Scottish family home" especially as I now have grandchildren who enjoy the freedom, openness of it and mucking about in the water, as my children did when they were little!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am just writing to say thank you for letting us stay at your Dalendrien property for the week. We have had a lovely time although the weather was lousy.



From the first night there the wildlife has been amazing along with the lovely views across the loch.



Your property was so well equipped with everything that one could possibly want.



Whilst sitting in the sun room overlooking the loch we saw Sea Eagles, one of which was a baby being shown the art of fishing, which we think went rather pear shaped. The youngster ended up in the water, struggling to get out. Even now we are not sure if it did, or if the water got the better of it. We have reported this to the wildlife people as I know they are all tagged. On the drive to and from we spotted Red Deer, and on the way to the little local store, we saw dolphins and seals.



Once again, thank you so much. We had a really lovely time, in such a special location.



The only thing we forgot to do was leave a report in your visitors book, this was only due to the fact that I was half way home when we remembered. Maybe you could ask your lovely cleaner if she could write something for us. What a wonderful holiday. We all had a fabulous time.



Many Thanks.

Lovely Property in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Dalendrien. From our arrival we felt immediately at home - not necessarily easy when you are in someone else's house. The property was really well appointed, and everything we needed was here. Ironically, despite the fabulous space of the reception rooms, we spent most of our time there in the small sun room, looking out at the Loch and Ben Nevis.

The weather wasn't the best, but this is Scotland, not the Caribbean. it didn't stop us doing anything as there were plenty of lovely drives and local walks. Perfect also for wildlife spotting as there was plenty to see within a mile of the house. We even had a Red Deer Stag in the Garden on our first evening there. Also spotted nearby were the Golden Eagle in the Glen behind Dalendrien and Two Sea Eagles further down the Loch towards Ardgour. we regularly saw Porpoises Just off shore.

We found the local Inn at Ardgour good for pub grub, and further afield, the Crannog Restaurant in Fort William was excellent for Sea food.

All in all, an excellent stay at a place I would happily recommend to anyone.

Andy and Brenda Robinson.

Fantastic house in a great peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

House is in a great location and sit's right on the shore of Loch Linnhe, we took 2 sit on top kayak's with us and we had load's of fun kayaking on the loch. It has large spacious room's with great views. The view from the kitchen window of Ben Nevis is amazing (if you get sunny weather) to enjoy it. The house has lot's of book's and games which we used when the weather was not so good. The house is equipped with everything you need to make your holiday an enjoyable one. There is a car ferry only a short drive away to get you across the loch or you can choose to leave the car and get a little foot ferry to visit Fort William if you wish. We saw lot's of wildlife whilst we were there, my daughter and husband saw a seal in the loch and we were all extremely lucky to see some stag's and deer in the garden . There was no binoculars there when we arrived which I feel there should be, but a quick text to the owner and within a couple of day's she had ordered a pair and they arrived, this made watching the stag's a real treat. The property was not as clean as it should have been upon arrival and with time the house could be amazing. The owner sent us lot's of information before we arrived telling us about the local area and followed this up with a phone call a few day's before our holiday to ask if we had any further questions, which I thought was nice. The customer service from the owner was outstanding. The house was warm and cozy and we cannot wait to visit again next year but for 2 weeks this time and not 1.We would recommend this property to friends and family Thank you for letting us enjoy your home.
