“Well-situated with magnificent view”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent a wonderful week in this homely, well-situated duplex with its majestic panoramic view of the lake and mountain (when there isn't a mist...). Definitely worth a return visit.

NB - care has to be taken when negotiating the space between the otherwise excellent walk-in "Italian" shower and the 90° corner of the overly-large glass washbasin in the downstairs bathroom!

“Superb location, great facilities, stunning views”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

booked this house for me & my crew for west highland race. Plenty room for all of us (7 ) lots of space, great facilities with 2 bathrooms and great size kitchen and dining area. Views from balcony are shutting, i Free wifi a bonus as fort William doesn't seem to get much signal otherwise. It's a hop and skip away ( unless you've ran 95 miles) from city centre so great location. We've already booked for next year

“Great Location, right in the heart of it all.”
Reviewed May 28, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a lovely stay for 2 nights. You can park your car at the cottage and then just wander around the town. Nice to have a car free day, the view from the top floor was amazing worth staying here just for that. The post code was correct on the sat nav so follow it otherwise it is a bit hard to find.

“Excellent”
Reviewed May 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed here for 2 nights from Friday to Sunday. The main purpose was to have a base to sleep for our climb of Ben Nevis on the Saturday. We are a group of 9 blokes. The sleeping arrangements were a bit cosy for 9 even thoufgh we broght a campbed. But this accomadation was perfect.
Just perfect for our needs and would have been just as good if I had brought my family.
The major plus points were-
Very close to the pubs, no more tahn 2 minutes walk from the Wetherspoons.
Large living area with stunning views to enjoy after our climb, that comfy for all of us to use..
About 5 minutes drive from the start of the climb for Ben Nevis.
I would highly recommend this place, for anyone with similar needs.

Our stay at the Old Harbour Master's was excellent. There were 8 of us and there was ample room to accommodate us all. The views from the balcony were breathtaking and it was only a short walk to the high street, which had plenty pubs. Ben Nevis is only a 5 minute drive away as well! Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

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
