Despite the property being very large for a couple, it felt very homely. I loved spending time upstairs enjoying the view. It is quick and easy to walk to the High Street for a bite to eat or a pint. Although it is close to the shops, the area itself is quiet. There is also good off-street parking.

An excellent house to host my husbands birthday .There were 9 of us and the space was great,the upstairs lounge was big enough for everyone and as we were blessed with great weather we even sat on the balcony in the sun.excellent views and good location for walking we did Ben Nevis and it was only a 5 minute drive to the car park.The only negative was we couldn't get the heating to work in the bedrooms but everything else was fantastic .highly recommend this house and we will be coming back

The scenery from the balcony was excellent. The accommodation was more than suitable for our needs, although it needed a lot of TLC. The owner was quick to reply to my text message regarding patio door onto the balcony, it would not close, I believe it had dropped. The area is wonderful and in easy reach of the High Street with pubs, bars and eating places. Not suitable for those with walking problems, very hilly.

This property is wonderfully situated and well stocked. There is also a lot of space, which was ideal for two families travelling with three small children. It is high on the hill and has a wonderful view from the loft-style living room of the loch, which was great for observing the late sunsets. Don´t expect luxurious finishings--but do expect to have all of your needs met. And the owner is always available if you require anything additional--for example, I needed a hairdryer and he had his cleaners deliver one to the apartment the following morning. We would stay definitely stay here again.

“We didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The house was absolutely fantastic. It was in a perfect location with beautiful views over the lough, and had everything we needed. There was more than enough room for the six of us, it was warm, the kitchen was fully equipped and it was a joy to sit in the attic lounge overlooking the lough. It was also great value for money and we would certainly stay here again. We couldn't recommend it more highly. The owner was courteous and helpful, and it felt like no-one had stayed in the house before despite arriving on changeover day thanks to the cleaners.

“Gem in the centre of Fort William - great value for money”
Reviewed April 24, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Our stay at the Old Harbour Master's was excellent.

The property is 1 minute from the high street with plenty of pubs and shops, the views from the balcony is stunning and the property is very clean. Some of the fittings are a little dated, but for us this just added to the character. There were several cooking utensils (and ingredients!) in the kitchen and separate dining room which made it perfect to eat together with a large group. We had a party of 8 and due to the size of the property we were never in each others way. There is only one shower (and a separate bath upstairs) so this was our only difficulty with a large group.

I would definitely recommend booking here - its great value for money, combined with the central location, makes it a gem of a find!
