“Perfect getaway whether you want to mountain climb, dive, fish or just take it easy...”

Wonderful, cosy cottage/chalet with a great position overlooking the loch, just outside Fort William. With big windows to sit and enjoy the grand view, a beach just over the road to enjoy the lapping water of the loch, a terrace for barbecuing and a steam shower to recover from a days walking, this high tech holiday cottage is perfect for groups up to four, however you want to spend the time in the area. Chris and Da are very welcoming and helpful and gave great advice to help make the most of our time.
The place was designed and built to make the most of a great location and maximise holiday comforts - can't recommend enough!

“Top Class Venue”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

One of the best rentals I have ever booked, the owner Chris was a true gentleman and was at hand with any help that we required. I will most definitely be back. Stunning View & accommodation was Top notch and very modern.

“Great accommodation in the perfect location!”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I've just got back after a brilliant stay here. The house was perfect for what we needed - especially the under floor heating and sauna shower! The location is great. The views across the loch from both the house and shore were amazing and everything is within driving distance. Chris and Da were so helpful and gave us plenty of tips and advice for walks and places to visit. I would thoroughly recommend staying here if you're travelling to the area!

“Highly recommended! 👍🏼”
Reviewed March 13, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This is the second time myself and my partner have stayed in this lodge within 6 months - we just had to go back! I cannot fault the accommodation in any way. It is a very well kept, clean lodge. Chris is very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Da offers amazing massages which I would highly recommend also. The location couldn't be any better and this is definitely a place we will frequently be returning to. I can't wait until we can book up again!

“There are many places to stay in Fort William. But you should really stay here.”
Reviewed March 6, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Stayed here in February and had a great week. The house is first class, perfect for returning after a day in the hills (the steam/shower was very welcome). The view is wonderful and we even managed a short February BBQ on the loch side. Chris and Da are great hosts and gave us some great tips.
The location is excellent Fort William is somewhat rundown, but it has everything you need and the surrounding landscape is stunning. We managed 2 days up high in the snow - Glencoe is 45 mins and Nevis Range about 10 minutes. I can recommend the train to Malaig (especially if you have Harry Potter fans with you) and the walk to the waterfalls.

“There are other cottages in Fort William. Stay in this one.”
Reviewed March 4, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

At the risk of repeating everything else in the previous reviews this place is mint. February Half term, we skied and we looked out the windows and we had a really nice time. Friendly couple handy for the bright lights of Fort Bill and the train to Mallaig. It really is as good as it looks and nothing in this life ever is except oddly this. Book it or someone else will.

“Perfect property for relaxing break”
Reviewed January 4, 2016 for a stay in December 2014

We booked in for Christmas having been wowed by the online photographs both of the property and views from it.

We had superb communication from Chris the owner from the first point of contact. His wife Da met us on arrival and was very warm and welcoming. My wife had forgotten her hairdryer and Da was more than happy to lend her one.

The house is new but not lacking in character. It has been beautifully designed and we spent plenty of time in each room playing games, watching films, reading and generally having fun.

The steam room inside in the double shower is excellent. I used this daily and the radio inside the shower is a nice added bonus.

The Open plan living is perfect for a couple with two children s we interchanged rooms depending on what we fancied doing. We did spend a lot of time inside due to the wet blustery weather but were never bored.

I can't say enough about this house as the photos say it all really. It's a great location, the prices are brilliant, the owners get the balance of interaction just right jd everything within the house is set up to make for the most relaxing holiday. It's a home away from home.

Directly across the road there is the beach on the loch. We spent lots of time with the children skimming stones here. You can also walk along the beach into town which takes bout twenty minutes. We would also run into town too as there is a suitable footpath.

Also, my wife would recommend Da's massages. A week on her body feels better than ever!
