Recently renovated throughout, in 2019, this single-storey property is the perfect base to explore the Highlands and surrounding areas and enjoy the spectacular views from your door.

Set within a private estate, this recently renovated, single-storey property is the perfect base from which to explore the Highlands with friends or family. Boasting incredible views over Loch Eil, it is also a haven for wildlife with deer and butterflies frequently spotted nearby. Spend your days exploring the surrounding countryside on foot or two wheels, taking in Fort William and the famous Ben Nevis, before returning to this modern bolthole for a relaxing evening in the open-plan living space or an al fresco meal in the large garden, which is perfect for dogs.

Inside, this contemporary property is fresh and bright, with tasteful neutral decor, wooden flooring and plenty of natural light streaming through the extensive windows. Leave wet boots and coats in the hallway, before stepping through to the welcoming open-plan living space. Cook up a storm in the modern kitchen area, which boasts chic units and is wheelchair friendly. Once prepared, dine at the good-sized table nearby, which seats six. Afterwards, settle in for an evening of TV, films or games with loved ones in the cosy lounge area beyond, which offers spectacular rural views through a large picture window. This property offers two tastefully presented bedrooms, one twin and one double, both of which provide plenty of storage for making yourselves at home. The bedrooms share a stylish and spacious bathroom.

Outside, the large garden area backs onto woodlands, perfect for exploring with children and dogs or enjoying a summer picnic. There is off-road parking for two cars.

Located on a private estate, this property enjoys a wonderfully peaceful setting overlooking Loch Eil. Set out on foot to explore the woodland behind the property or stroll down to the banks of the loch. Just a short drive away, Fort William (11 miles) is the outdoor hotspot of the Highlands, offering a range of activities including mountain biking, climbing, walking, water and winter sports. Here you will also find a good selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Fort William is most famous, however, for the mighty Ben Nevis (17 miles). Part of the Grampian Mountain range, this famous peak is Scotland’s largest mountain, with two main walking routes to the summit for varying ability levels. Harry Potter fans should head straight for the Jacobite Steam Train, which starts its journey near Ben Nevis, passing lochs, rivers, the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct (10.5 miles) and many more breathtaking views. Meanwhile, the picturesque Road to the Isles (7 miles) passes some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Or, for those who prefer to be on the water itself, cruises can be enjoyed at Loch Shiel (19 miles), Loch Linnhe (38 miles) and the Sound of Sleat (50 miles). Other nearby attractions include Binnein Mor, the highest peak in the Mamores mountain range, the Steall Waterfall (17 miles) and Neptune’s Staircase (8.5 miles).

A comfortable property in a great location, perfect for exploring Fort William and the surrounding area. It was spotlessly clean and the housekeepers checked in with us to ensure all was well. We enjoyed a lovely walk in the estate woodland that had a great view of the surrounding mountains.

Location is fabulous, wonderful views and easy distance to Fort William, Glenfinnan and Mallaig. Cottage is very clean and functional, missing the homely touches but this could be due to the Covid. No hairdryer or washing machine. Housekeeping very helpful, overall a lovely cottage in a lovely location

Immaculate semi detached cottage close to beautiful walks on the Fassfern estate. Spacious, well appointed, comfortable, easy to use whether eating at home or out.

Lovely accommodation, clean, warm and welcoming especially after a rainy day walk. Perfect location with the added bonus of being next to the railway line to see the steam train, but not yo close that you hear it indoors. lovely woodland views. What a gem. If you need anything you have a mobile number to hand.

The cottage is situated in a Scottish Woodlands estate with marvellous views and good forest walks. But you will need a car to reach shops or a bar or restaurant, none of which are within walking distance and public transport is very limited.

Lovely bright, airy cottage set amongst the trees in a peaceful location. The bedrooms overlook the woods at the back which is lovely. Local amenities are just a few miles away and you can get to Mallaig within about half an hour and other places of interest in even less time, for example Glenfinnan.

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.
