We travelled here as a family of 2 adults and 4 children (ages 6, 8, 11, 13). The views upon approach down the winding country roads were fantastic, on arrival at the lodges they were ideally situated on the banks of the canal with amazing views of Ben Nevis. We received a warm welcome from Frank and Malcom who were helpful throughout our trip. The accomodation was very spacious with everything you could possibly need i.e washer/dryer, Flat screen TVs, microwave, DVD library at the main reception. etc... All bedrooms provided an extremely comforatble and peaceful nights sleep. We were lucky enough to be able to sit out on the verander where a stag paid us a visit on a couple of occasions. The children made use of the play area but also made their own fun exploring the site itself.

Fort William was a short drive away with Morrisons, Tesco, Lidl and Farmfoods all to hand, with a host of pubs and restaurants to choose from. There is plenty to do hiking and walking, the West Highland steam train (of Harry Potter fame), Anoch Mor mountain gondola, Loch Ness and the awesome Glen Coe within easy driving distance to name but a few.

All in all a fantastic holiday in a truely idealic setting, highly recommeded.

The lodges are very good standard, amazing views everywhere and although there are more lodges than I had thought, every lodge has its own space and you don't feel crowded at all. They also get very toasty! We were a little worried about being too cold, but there wasn't a problem inside the lodges! They're very well equipt and the DVD rental at reception is a lovely touch. Frank was amazingly helpful the whole way through from initial contact to saying goodbye, and he was very friendly (even giving us a lift up to the local loch). Our only regret was that we didn't book a week! Book it! You'll love it!

Excellent accommodation in a stunning setting. Very clean, warm and comfortable. The decking was excellent for dining, relaxing and watching the boats on the canal and the people on the canal tow path running, cycling and walking. Very peaceful but interesting too. Also ideal to sit outside and view the stars as there is very little light pollution. The rural scene was enhanced by "our" herd of cows on our side of the canal wandering up and down. Frank, the manager, was very friendly and helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodges. The accommodation is wonderful with every modern convenience available in a country setting.

It is peaceful and picturesque while being only a few minutes drive from dozens of restaurants and all the sights of the area. Ideal for tourists.

The hosts have managed a perfect balance of being extremely helpful and friendly, without being invasive.

We would recommend Lochaber Lodges without hesitation to families and couples alike, for anyone looking for some peace and quiet in the country side or for those who enjoy the outdoors.

We were 4 adults traveling on vacation and used this a base for exploring the highlands and the islands. The location and views are stunning with the canal and mountains in front of you. The lodges were well equipped, well maintained. All the amenities you could want. Frank and Ellen, the managers were very, very hospitable, willing to help in any way, and always only a call a way. Their friendliness was a big part of our great experience. Would not hesitate to stay again

The lodges are in a stunning setting, a stones throw from the Caledonian Canal and has the Nevis Range as its back drop. Fascinating watching the Boats go past and the Weather pass over Ben Nevis. Used it as a base to tour about with so much within driving range your spoiled for choice really.

Cant fault it at all, a little gem and I hope it stays that way as it’s lovely and quiet and peaceful. The actual lodge (we stayed in the two bedroom version) was spotless and obviously kept to a high standard. Everything we needed was provided, it was better kitted out than our house. Comfortable and warm and plenty of room inside.

We seen everything from Deer to a Clyde Puffer and even a guy on a unicycle (I kid you not) on the other side on the Canal track. I honestly wish I had spent less time touring in the car and got hold of a bike to explore the area more. So if your into Walking or able to take your bikes your in for a treat.

Owners could not have been more helpful or welcoming, even if it was just a wave some of the days on the passing of the reception.

If I was really pushed into suggesting anything that could be bettered then I’d only say the Wi-Fi could be stronger but its still there and very usable and I had good mobile coverage as well that was a surprise considering your in the Great Glen.

We were a family with 2 children aged 7 and 9 years old, in our first trip to Scotland, looking for RELAX in a nice accomodation, and this was, AS MY HUSBAD SET, exactly the lodge and holidays he was ever looking for. Absolutely CLEAN , COSY, ALL IN THE LODGE IS BRAND NEW, with large windows and light. THE LOCATION IS PERFECT TO VISIT AROUND WITH NO TO MUCH TIME DRIVING: we visit with the children, in no hurry at all, Glencoe, Neptune's Staircase and rent a canoe in the Caledonian Canal, Eilean Donan Castle, Five Sisters Mountains, Loch Ness, Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary, Invergarry, taking the ferry in Corran the area of Strontian, where we saw seals...
Very often, we saw DEERS from the windows early in the morning or after the sunset. GREAT IF YOU TRAVEL WITH CHILDREN!!!
THE BEST OF COURSE IS FRANK, WITH SO KIND AND FAMILIAR SUPPORT EVERY DAY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FRANK FOR YOUR SMILE EVERY DAY.
