This single-storey property is the perfect base to explore the Highlands and surrounding areas and enjoy the spectacular views from your door.

Set within a private estate, this single-storey property is the perfect base from which to explore the Highlands with friends or family. Boasting incredible views over Loch Eil, it is also a haven for wildlife with deer and butterflies frequently spotted nearby. Spend your days exploring the surrounding countryside on foot or two wheels, taking in Fort William and the famous Ben Nevis, before returning to this modern bolthole for a relaxing evening in the open-plan living space or an al fresco meal in the large garden, which is perfect for dogs.

 

Inside, this contemporary property is fresh and bright, with tasteful neutral decor, wooden flooring and plenty of natural light streaming through the extensive windows. Leave wet boots and coats in the hallway, before stepping through to the welcoming open-plan living space. Cook up a storm in the modern kitchen area, which boasts chic units. Once prepared, dine at the good-sized table nearby, which seats six. Afterwards, settle in for an evening of TV, films or games with loved ones in the cosy lounge area beyond, which offers spectacular rural views through a large picture window.

Located on a private estate, this property enjoys a wonderfully peaceful setting overlooking Loch Eil. Set out on foot to explore the woodland behind the property or stroll down to the banks of the loch. Just a short drive away, Fort William (11 miles) is the outdoor hotspot of the Highlands, offering a range of activities including mountain biking, climbing, walking, water and winter sports. Here you will also find a good selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Fort William is most famous, however, for the mighty Ben Nevis (17 miles). Part of the Grampian Mountain range, this famous peak is Scotland’s largest mountain, with two main walking routes to the summit for varying ability levels. Harry Potter fans should head straight for the Jacobite Steam Train, which starts its journey near Ben Nevis, passing lochs, rivers, the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct (10.5 miles) and many more breathtaking views. Meanwhile, the picturesque Road to the Isles (7 miles) passes some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Or, for those who prefer to be on the water itself, cruises can be enjoyed at Loch Shiel (19 miles), Loch Linnhe (38 miles) and the Sound of Sleat (50 miles). Other nearby attractions include Binnein Mor, the highest peak in the Mamores mountain range, the Steall Waterfall (17 miles) and Neptune’s Staircase (8.5 miles).

The cottage was lovely, overlooking the loch, but we couldnt get to the loch, or anywhere else, without going in the car. The property is set just off a busy main road which has no footpaths so, apart from the local walk (which is through forests and very pleasant) you have to go out in the car. There is a bus service which runs every couple of houRead morers or so in the summer. However we had a great time and Claire was lovely. Hide
