“Great location, great views and a lovely house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed in the Old Harbour Master's in mid August, a busy time in Fort William, and yet although the house is very close to the town it was always nice and quiet once round the corner in the property's area. The house itself is big, the rooms large and well equipped, and everything very comfortable. We mostly ate in the kitchen, but there is a good dining room if you want to get a larger group around a table. The kitchen itself was well equipped. The (wet room) main bathroom was good, as was the upstairs (traditional) bathroom.
The star show of the house is the large lounge on the top floor which has stunning views over Fort William, the loch and surrounding area. Unfortunately the weather in the evenings was generally not good enough to sit out on the balcony, but just admiring the views from the lounge was fantastic. The only thing that may put some off is the property starts on the first floor, so there are quite a few steps to carry luggage up, but it was never a problem for us.

Four of us didn't fill this great 4 bed cottage-the space was great and the balcony and sitting room views over the Loch were lovely.Everything we needed to self-cater was provided,the cleanliness was amazing and we had a ball!Fort William is the perfect place for an adventure holiday or simply as a base to explore the Highlands.Our stay was faultless and we felt lucky to have found the Old Harbour Master's Cottage.

La maison pour 6 adultes et 2 enfants maxi. est bien située avec une belle vue sur le loch Linné.
Par contre elle est en pierre et très difficile à chauffer en hiver.
Les + : le parking, les équipements de cuisine, vidéo et internet
Les - : les sanitaires et la chambre "placard" avec lits superposés
