“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed July 14, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Amazing location and such a comfortable, clean, warm, well equipped chalet just perfect. The bed is huge and really cosy. Birch Lodge is just beside the canal which provides great walks in perfect tranquility.

“Stunning location - lovely owner - stunning views and location.”
Reviewed January 9, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The view from this lodge is amazing - looking directly out over Ben Nevis range (if it's not raining!).

We were welcomed by the owner Sheena upon arrival after great communication prior to getting there. Sheena showed us round and gave us some local info then left us alone to do what we needed to do but with a 'let me know if you need anything at all' as she left.

If you like peace and quiet, this is just for you. The site is small but well maintained and was perfect for us and our two Labradors. The lodge was well equipped and left us wanting for nothing.

The site is around 2 miles from the nearest shops but if you're in to walking like us, it's a nice stroll down Neptune's Staircase via the Caledonia Canal which runs right past the front door!

We'd happily visit again.

“A very enjoyable stay ”
Reviewed November 1, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Not the easiest place to find but once we arrived we were warmly greeted by the owner Sine, she was very informative and nothing was a problem to her. The view from the lodge was spectacular with a view of Ben Nevis and Aonach Mor and surrounding hills. The lodge itself was very clean and smart with everything you need to make it feel very homely. The walks were fantastic and plenty of them, we had our dog with us and she had a great time. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Birch Lodge and look forward to returning in the near future.

“Perfect break away”

My husband and I stayed at Birch Lodge for a few days and picked it because it was so close to Ben Nevis which we were wanting to climb. I'm really glad we stayed here. The lodge is easy to get to, warm & cosy, peaceful, quiet and has beautiful views of the nevis range. The canal runs along the bottom of the site and was perfect for walking the dogs straight from the door. The lodge is only about 10 minutes away from Fort William where there is a great choice of places to eat or a supermarket if you prefer to eat in. We ate in a couple of times and the kitchen is the best equipped I've known in a holiday lodge. We received a very warm welcome from Sine who was happy to help with anything should we need it. A perfect few days stay. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we come to the area. Perfect break away. Thank you

“Perfect spot with a great view of Ben Nevis.”
Reviewed October 17, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Well equipped and very cosy cabin. Ideally situated to visit the surrounding area such as Oban, The Great Glen, The Isle of Skye and many more places in the western highlands.

“Just what we needed”
Reviewed January 28, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My boyfriend and I wanted somewhere cosy we could stay for a New Year break and to do some walking/head up Ben Nevis. The location was perfect - easy to get to good walks, the Ben and the town centre. We had some nice cosy evenings in the lodge and made use of the kitchen facilities. The bed is very comfortable bed too!
