    • “Fantastic chalet, fantastic views”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We could not have asked for a better chalet. The views were beautifull, the village was small but the people and pub were very friendly. Very clean and cosy. A daily visit by a little vole on the veranda for his daily bread was lovely. I would recormend this location and chalet to anyone visiting the Highlands. A visit to Ben Nevis is a must and also the steam railway (Harry Potter) from Fort William. A always research any property we visit and again I was not let down with Sykes.”

    • “we have just retuned from staying a week at this superb chalet, it has everything you need for a perfect holiday, a real home from home, stunning views of the surrounding mountains and local village, a deer wandered into the garden on two occasions. The local people are so friendly and helpfull, our car broke down and every one was so kind, we are looking forward to returning in two weeks when we can pick our car up, (hopefully). No matter which direction you take the views are breathtaking!!!”

    • “Great base”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This accommodation was ideal for a family with two large double bedrooms and a single; well decorated but could do with a bit more kitchen equipment. Located above the village and within easy reach of local shop and fairly indifferent pub. We enjoyed our stay and did see the deer in the garden much to our surprise. Kinlochleven is not all that inspiring but is a great base to explore superb surrounding countryside.”

    • “"Opening the curtains to stunning snow capped mountain views was amazing. The chalet was a good base within easy drive of Fort William and other tourist destinations. For wildlife lovers there are plenty of birds close by and we had a Pine Martin near the back door eating kitchen scraps."”

    Mr Tyler, Rotherham, March 2015

    • “We loved the warm welcome, and the location. We are planning on going again.”

    Mr Evans, Doncaster, November 2014

    • “Absolutely a delight and the owner was a gem. Would emphasize how easy it was to get to is bus service to the village. It was off the beaten path yet worth it and we came all the way from the west coast of the United states.”
