  • A historic country house set within a glorious 22,000-acre highland estate
  • Sleep in Bonnie Prince Charlie's bedroom
  • Enjoy wonderful views across to Ben Nevis from the living room
Property code: CA139

With bags of character, this six -bedroom grand period property is the perfect destination for large families or groups of friends seeking a comfortable base from which to explore the countryside and coastline of the area.

This beautiful old house with views of Ben Nevis, sleeping ten guests and two dogs across six bedrooms, has a place in Scottish Jacobite history. Bonnie Prince Charlie, after raising his standard at Glenfinnan in 1745, stayed overnight in the house and in the morning plucked a white rose from a bush at the front of the property and attached it to his bonnet. The rose became his emblem and the symbol for the Jacobite cause, ‘The White Cockade’. The holiday let is full of character with a traditional feel and pretty fireplaces and furnishings. Set in Fassfern, 9 miles from Fort William, this house is perfect for large families or friends looking for a quiet rural holiday while still having access to shops and leisure facilities.

Step into the property and you’re welcomed by bright and airy rooms that have country-style decor and furnishings, creating a special feel. Artwork that fits the style of the house is dotted throughout, and rich woods and soft lighting make it an extremely comfortable place to relax in after a day out in the countryside.

The drawing room is a cosy haven to snuggle up in during the evenings, with comfy deep sofas to sink into in front of the open fire. If there’s a musician in the family, crowd around the grand piano to have a sing-song. The kitchen has a quaint country feel with a Rangemaster cooker – enjoy cooked meals in the beautiful dining room. Guests of all ages will delight in the games room that houses a snooker table and a bookcase with lots of titles.

Upstairs, the bedrooms lend a tranquil feel to your stay; elegant old furniture and lovely fabrics make them a peaceful place to retreat to at the end of the day. Both double bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, the further double bedroom is spacious and includes a wash basin. The cosy single room has access to a shower room. The west wing has two twin bedrooms along with two bathrooms.

The property is set within 22,000 gorgeous acres. Wander the grounds with your dogs and feel like you’re truly away from it all – but listen out for the Jacobite steam train that you can see from the end of the estate. Enjoy an al fresco drink on the garden furniture to make the most of the sun. There is a lockable door between this property and the adjoining cottage, which can also be booked to bring the total capacity of the house to 14. There are a further two cottages, sleeping four and two, also on the estate.

 

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

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

If you are lucky, you might spot deer, eagles, buzzards, seals or porpoises. Find a local shop and Post Office 5.5 miles away in Corpach or drive to Fort William, 9.5 miles away, to potter in an array of outlets, dine out and enjoy the leisure facilities. There is a swimming pool here and an 18-hole golf course. Visit the town as the starting point for climbing Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain. Spend time in the picturesque Glen Nevis, where you can walk through a gorge and admire beautiful waterfalls.

A lovely cottage with plenty of room for 10 of us to spread out, as well as good communal space for eating and relaxing. It's about 20 minutes out of Fort William and 2 minutes from the main road, but feels lovely and secluded - it's very quiet. Lots of nice walks nearby. The facilities within the cottage are good - pretty much everything you need Read morein the kitchen. Poor Wi-fi was our main annoyance and those used to firm/supportive pillows might want to bring their own. We'd love to return! Hide

Fassfern is a charming and beautifully located house, we had a wonderful two weeks here. The accommodation is well laid out and comfortable, and the setting is just perfect.

Outstanding accomodation in a wonderful location. The big house is ideal for a large party, and the table with seating for all in the kitchen is very conveniant for meals. Wondereful walks on the estate, staight out of the house - no need to drive - is a particularly ayyractive feature, often missing in otherwise attractive rental cottages.

We had a wonderful holiday - the house was definitely a big part of that. Plenty of room and more than enough bathrooms made for a very relaxing time. The grounds of the house are beautiful and well kept. It was so hot we swam in the river pools behind the house! There was only one drawback - we had to keep both dogs on leads at all times as sheep Read moreare visible and audible in the adjoining field but this was balanced by the variety of walks from the property. We hope to return. Hide

The house is very spacious, has everything you need and is very comfortable. The Housekeepers are very friendly and are close by to ensure a trouble-free stay. The house is in an excellent location if you are walking the Munros or Corbetts in the Glenfinnan area, or want to go to the coast in the Mallaig direction.

The cottage is massive with 6 bedrooms & 5 bathrooms and is set in wonderful surroundings. The kitchen was adequate for our needs but needs some tlc ( see above ). As there were only 6 of us staying we never used the dining room as there was plenty of room in the kitchen.

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.
