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.
