Looking out across the idyllic River Lochy and to the heights of Ben Nevis, this beautifully renovated holiday retreat is perfect for family gatherings or friends'' getaways in the Scottish Highlands.

Escape to the western highlands in search of adventure, just 3.5 miles from Fort William, also known as the gate to Ben Nevis. Sleeping 14 guests across seven bedrooms, this is the perfect retreat for large parties who love the outdoors. Fill your itinerary with scenic walks, mountain biking, water sports and during the winter there’s even skiing and snowboarding opportunities if the weather is favourable. After a busy day, return to bask in the glow of a roaring open fire, wee dram in hand as you unwind in the comfort of this beautifully renovated property.

The house is wonderfully spacious and full of natural light from large bay windows, offering panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Each room is decorated in rich colours and elegantly furnished, warmed throughout by four open fires and cosy central heating. Details such as a vast mahogany dining table and antique-style furniture add to the historic feel of the property, which was built in 1870 as the primary fishing lodge of the River Lochy.

The kitchen is finished in a true farmhouse-style, complete with a magnificent Aga for rustling up hearty meals. A useful larder, utility room, and a butler’s pantry make catering for large parties a breeze, especially with the addition of a grand dining room fit for a feast. Post-dinner drinks and relaxed conversation flow in the drawing-room, or perhaps you would prefer to curl up in the peaceful morning room with a warming brew. The sitting room is an excellent spot to relax, watch television or play games. There’s also a neighbouring study with a TV to settle any disagreements of what to watch.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are bursting with character and traditional touches, many of which have unique details such as sloped ceilings and cosy nooks. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and boasts a bed older than the house itself; a magnificent Jacobean four-poster. Two king-size rooms have their own en-suites, each featuring a bath for long soaks after a day of adventuring. The remaining rooms are all twins, dressed in crisp linen and sharing two family-sized bathrooms.

The house is shrouded by ancient trees and surrounded by five acres of spectacular informal grounds and open farmland as far as the eye can see. Perch outside on the paved terrace with a pot of fresh coffee, marvelling at the breathtaking views across the river to the mountains beyond. The river is home to a variety of wildlife and is well known for its large salmon, so keep your eyes peeled when dipping your toes in the water!

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

You could also attempt to conquer the imposing Ben Nevis – the ancient giant of the land. There are different routes to suit varying abilities, but you are guaranteed a fantastic experience with enchanting views. Once you have satisfied your thirst for adventure, treat yourself to a well-earned meal at one of the many different restaurants scattered throughout the town. You'll be well placed to quench a different type of thirst too, as a local distillery and a brewery are close by.

Adopt a slower pace and take in a bit of history, planning a visit to the Old Inverlochy Castle 4.5 miles away; one of the most important castles in Scottish history which now lies in ruins. No trip is complete without travelling along the greatest railway in the world onboard the “Jacobite”, which passes over the spectacular Glenfinnan viaduct – a familiar sight for fans of Harry Potter.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
