We were very well looked after at Callart View for 4 nights in August. We took 2 rooms across the landing from each other ( a double with beautiful views over the loch and a twin looking over the back for our children aged 11 and 9). We were made to feel very welcome and Lynn cooked the best breakfasts of our entire trip to Scotland. We particularly appreciated the fresh fruit and the real Scottish cooked breakfast. Our son managed to leave a cable behind in the room and Lynn very kindly offered to post it back.... very good service all round!
This is a beautiful place to base yourself to explore the local area. Our highlights included
> climbing Ben Nevis (we left our car at the Glen Nevis visitor centre and walked for 6 hours)
> visiting the Glen Coe visitor centre - really interesting explanation of history, geology and wildlife of the area and then walking in the area (signal hill )
> visiting the Glenfinnan monument and site of the viaduct where we watched the Jacobite steam train pass by (and then follow it along its route to Mallaig), driving back via the beautiful ruined castle of Tioram.
> ice climbing at Kinlochleven indoor centre (largest ice climbing centre in Europe... great for the children!)
