Just returned from a 2 night stay at this amazing place. We used it as a base to climb Ben Nevis. It is just a few minutes drive from Fort William but you wouldn't know it, it's tucked away and you can see nothing more but open fields and an amazing view of Nevis.
We were a group of 3 guys staying in the Eagle Yurt and when other reviewers have said they can see Nevis from the Yurt they really were not joking, although seeing the sheer size of the mountain before you're about to climb it maybe didn't help!
The yurt is very comfortable, it was cold outside (6 degrees) but the Yurt was fine even before we lit the fire inside, it was specious enough to accommodate 3 guys with our walking gear and very clean and well maintained.
The communal area was the best I've seen, plenty of seating/dining space and a huge stove which proved very handy for cooking breakfast. The kitchen is very well equipped with all the cuttlery, pans, cups you could need, all you need to bring is food which can be stood in the fridge or freezer.
We made use of the huge BBQ on the first night and the chimnea burner on both nights to keep warm (wood is provided).
The bathroom area was very clean with running hot water sinks and 2 hot showers (amazingly good for a 'camp'. One thing I would recommend is bearing in mind this is an eco-lodge bring a decent head torch to make your way around camp at night.
The camp was fully booked when we were there but you wouldn't know it, it seemed very peaceful and quiet, prefect for walkers such as ourselves but equally for couples wishing for a romantic trip away.
Not that we'd want to, but you couldn't fault this place at all, will definitely be back
