In an idyllic secluded location, this cosy cottage is perfect for romantic walking getaways for two.

This pleasant cottage located on the picturesque Fassfern Estate on the north side of Loch Eil is the perfect base for a couple or two friends seeking a comfortable base in the Highlands. With miles of breathtaking walks in the surrounding woodland and around the loch, as well as easy access to the many outdoor activities available at nearby Fort William, including Glen Nevis, this is the ideal spot for an active break.

This single-storey property offers a calm and relaxing stay with its simple décor and uncluttered interior. Clean and fresh, the neutral colour scheme is easy on the eye and the comfortable sofa and beds ensure a restful break.

As you enter the cottage through the front door, you come into the comfortable, open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room. The neat kitchen area has everything you need for rustling up a few quick meals and the adjacent dining table is a good size for spreading out maps as you plan your day ahead over a coffee. After a day out exploring, kick back and relax with a drink in front of the TV before heading to the twin bedroom for a good night’s sleep. In the morning, enjoy a reinvigorating shower in the bathroom before heading back out into the hills.

Outside there is a walled lawn, shared with the neighbouring properties, and some picnic benches where you can sit with a refreshing drink in the sun on warmer days as you enjoy the sound of the river rushing under the nearby bridge and breathe in the clean Highland air. Also outside is a useful drying room for drying out damp clothes overnight, and plenty of parking.

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

Just 5.5 miles away is the small village of Corpach where you will find a Co-op for any essentials. The Caledonian canal meets the loch here and there are superb views to be had towards Ben Nevis in the distance. Further afield, the pretty village of Glenfinnan (8 miles) overlooks Loch Shiel and has a small selection of places to eat and drink. Take a stroll down to the loch and admire the National Trust for Scotland Glenfinnan Monument where the lone Highlander looks over the loch, while behind you, the impressive viaduct carries The Jacobite – the magnificent steam engine that travels from Fort William to Mallaig.

In addition to the local walks and cycle trails, just 9 miles away is the bustling town of Fort William, a huge centre for outdoor activities, offering everything from kayaking and climbing to quad biking and sailing. Just a couple of miles on from Fort William looms Ben Nevis, Scotland's mighty mountain – the highest in the UK at 4,409 feet. For those seeking a gentler stay, take boat trips on Loch Eil or Loche Linnhe and catch a glimpse of the local wildlife including dolphins and red deer.

Cosy little retreat, ideal place to stay to get away from it all, but close enough to enjoy the benefits of Fort William. The Fassern Estate is great walking and wildlife spotting. We will be recommending a stay here to friends and family. Thank you for a great holiday.

There was nothing that we would have changed about the cottage.

The cottage is small but has everything two people need on holiday (no WiFi, but that's a blessing, perhaps?). The location is quiet, peaceful and delightully scenic.

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.
