Renowned for its stunning sunsets, Loch Linnhe makes a wonderful base for exploring Lochaber in the west of Scotland. An ideal spot for activities including angling, sailing and kayaking, Loch Linnhe is also known for its wildlife, with chances to spot seals, golden eagles, red deer, porpoises and dolphins. Stretching for some 30 miles, the loch is surrounded by spellbinding countryside, with Ben Nevis (17 miles) towering in the distance. You can also take a boat trip across the loch on the Corran Ferry, or explore the area by steam train.

At the head of the loch is the bustling town of Fort William (17 miles). Featuring plenty of great pubs, restaurants, shops and cafes, Fort William is also home to attractions and landmarks including the West Highland Museum, Cow Hill Viewpoint, Old Inverlochy Castle and the Ben Nevis Distillery. The area has a number of exciting outdoor activity centres, perfect for trying your hand at white-water rafting, canoeing or gorge walking.

The bothy is set along the loch’s northern shore, with some beautiful sites and impressive peaks for keen walkers, climbers and bikers to explore, including Ariundle Oakwood National Nature Reserve, Sgurr Dhomhnuill, Creach Bheinn and Garb Bheinn (all within 17 miles). From Port Appin (28 miles) you can take a ferry out to the beautiful island of Lismore, site of the Lismore Lighthouse and home to a range of wildlife including seals, peregrines and razorbills.

This is a great cottage with lovely views especially the sheep in the adjacent field kept us amused during the very wet weather. The area is amazing and we managed to get out and about despite the weather. Owner was very helpful with suggestions of places to visit and what to look out for. The cottage is well equipped, clean and comfortable.

Lovely place with an amazing view of the loch and mountains. This is quite an isolated area, therefore one should bring lots of supplies.
