Soak up loch views, sunsets on the terrace and nights around the open fire at this rustically charming property, 3 miles from the bustling town of Fort William.

A stunning Scottish farm cottage could be your lochside home for a few days set in this spectacular area of the Highlands. Just 3 miles from Fort William and located on the private grounds of the Coruanan Estate, the farmhouse is the perfect retreat for an active family or group of adventuring friends.

The farmhouse itself is a delightful home, with unrivalled views over Loch Linnhe, the hills of Ardgour, and the towering Ben Nevis. Its rooms are beautifully designed to bring those views right inside, with feature windows and romantic period details.

Enter to discover the heart of this sociable home — a bright and welcoming lounge. Sofas and country furnishings are arranged around an open fire, while a large window faces the garden and brings the light in, making the space feel magical with the atmosphere from the landscape outside. Doors lead out to the terrace and garden. A modern kitchen with breakfast bar is another great place to hang out, or set up for a proper feast in the dining room.

Upstairs, three twin rooms and a single each enjoy views out over the loch and beyond, plus delightful decor and traditional Scottish touches, for a restful, night’s sleep.

Outside the property you’ll find the sweeping grounds of the estate. The house is elevated above the surrounding landscape, so you can see a hint of all there is to explore. The garden around the house has a stream running through it, and a terrace at the front is the perfect place to enjoy the sunshine or a night cap in the fresh hillside air.

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

The farmhouse's location couldn't be closer to the wilderness of the Highlands. Step out and discover all the many things there are to do here, not to mention the beautiful scenery that will have you wanting to dig the paintbrushes out (or at least the camera).

You could take a trek to the loch. The calm and glassy water creates a tranquil atmosphere, ideal for a jog or peaceful stroll. Head along the shore 4.5 miles to Fort William, a town at the foothills of Ben Nevis. Here you can find traditional Scottish delights, such as whisky tours and tastings, independent shops and boutiques, as well as the West Highland Museum.

For those of you who love a more active adventure, there are many exhilarating pursuits to try on and around Ben Nevis. Follow the forest trails for an up-close view of Highland trees and wildlife. Get a taste of kayaking at the National Kayak School, learn to ski at the Nevis Range Mountain Resort, or for a dramatic moment, take a 12-mile drive to the Steall Waterfall, a stunning drop of water through Glen Nevis, which you may recognise as one of the filming locations for Harry Potter.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

Loved everything about this house. It was so clean and comfortable and has a spectacular view of the hills and Loch. Relaxing evenings were spent by the fireplace. Beds were comfortable. Great location, too. Incredible hiking in the area. Good restaurants... recommend The Tavern and The Geographer. Shopping, distillery tours, castle ruins, etc. ...Read moresomething for everyone. Highly recommend this place! Hide

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.
