This two-bedroom cottage is the ideal base for enjoying the outdoor experiences and natural beauty of the magnificent West Highlands.

This charming, traditional holiday home is perfectly located close to the scenic shores of Loch Linnhe and the magical mountains of Ballachulish, Glencoe and Ben Nevis. Set in a pretty, enclosed garden within a small hamlet on the edge of the friendly village of Onich, it’s just 10 miles from Fort William. The cottage is adjacent to the National Cycle Route 78, The Caledonia Way, and your bikes can go in the lockable bike store when not in use.

Sleeping up to three guests in two delightfully presented bedrooms, this welcoming single-storey cottage is full of character and furnished to a high standard. Great care has been taken to ensure a memorable home-from-home holiday and many thoughtful touches make this property a lovely base to return to and relax in after an active day out and about.

Inside, the spacious living room – with its comfortable seating, dining table and cosy wood burner – is glorious for quiet evenings while the stylish, bright and well-equipped kitchen has a fabulous outlook across a field to the hills beyond. The two comfortable bedrooms – one double and one single – and the family shower room are easily accessible in this single-storey home.

Step outside, where the patio area creates a lovely spot for sitting out in and enjoying summertime drinks and alfresco dining. Further on, the enclosed garden is a tranquil place to enjoy some peace and quiet. There are many beautiful walks to be enjoyed straight from the doorstep.

The cottage's close proximity to the main A82 route main through the West Highlands makes it the ideal base for discovering one of the most romantic areas of Scotland, famous for its spectacular castles, dramatic scenery, mystic glens, rugged coast and abundant wildlife.

Set at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest peak, Fort William and Lochaber is known as the outdoor capital of the UK and offers an extensive range of activities to suit all ages. Less than 17 miles away is the popular Nevis Range where you can experience the scenic mountain gondola ride, explore miles of forest track, be challenged by a championship mountain biking track and enjoy excellent winter skiing and snowboarding. Glencoe Mountain Resort is around 19 miles away.

Alternatively, take the Corran Ferry (1.5 miles) to visit the beautiful Ardnamurchan Peninsula and savour the peaceful ancient oak woodland paths, remarkable wildlife and stunning views out to numerous Hebridean islands especially from the Ardnamurchan Lighthouse. The busy harbour town of Oban (33 miles), which has a distillery, offers many exciting day trips to various Inner Hebridean islands.

Croft cottage is a lovely place to stay. We had 2 weeks there. Immaculately clean, beautifully furnished, because of staying 2 weeks, the owner left linen for 2 weeks. All the little extras when we arrived were a great blessing. Fresh flowers. I highly recommend this cottage.

Croft cottage was just home from home, so comfortable with beautiful views from the kitchen window. The weather was an extra bonus for us, sunny and warm so we enjoyed sitting in the garden when we heard a cuckoo calling. The cottage is ideally located for visiting some beautiful countryside, the walk from the Croft to the Incree waterfall is a musRead moret. Highly recommended. Hide
