    “The cottage was excellent - warm ...”
    The cottage was excellent - warm and cosy with the added benefit of an open fire which we very much enjoyed. Easy access to the town and excellent facilities for an outstandingly good price. A great base from which to explore the Ben Nevis and Glencoe areas. We had a fantastic week and wish we could have stayed for two.

The property

A centrally located, traditional Fort William cottage, just a short walk from the town centre and close to excellent outdoor pursuits.

The elevated location of this charming Fort William cottage allows for far-reaching views across the town to the loch and mountains beyond, making this Highlands cottage ideal for a family or group of friends looking to soak up the atmosphere of the Highlands and embrace the wonderful outdoor activities on offer.

There are three bedrooms in this Fort William cottage, one on the ground floor, along with a ground floor bathroom and shower room.

The sitting/dining room is a sociable space with a large open fire, while a very well-equipped, fitted kitchen is also available to guests.

Outside this Fort William cottage there is a small mature garden, along with ample space for off road parking.

The town centre of Fort William is within easy walking distance and here you will find good shops, lively pubs and restaurants.

The town is a great base for touring the larger area and if you head south you may enjoy a trip into historic Glencoe with its fabulous visitor centre, or perhaps you could take the Corran Ferry and visit the stunning Ardnamurchan Peninsula with its beautiful sandy beaches.

There is so much within an easy drive, but why not abandon the car and take the pathway close to the cottage, which will lead you into spectacular Glen Nevis.

You will love this area and the comfort of your homely Fort William cottage just as much.
