  • "An incredible holiday - thank you!"

    The accommodation was wonderful: clean, comfortable, with everything we needed and an amazing shower! The views from all around the accommodation were incredible - from the loch to the trees and mountains, in the rain, sunshine and even moonlit. The balcony provides an excellent sheltered area to take it all in. The location is incredible: wildlife everywhere! Just on the drive out from the accommodation we saw buzzards, hedgehog, deer rutting, the Ardgour mountain goats, seals, fins in the sea and many different birds - the highlight was watching an otter fishing! The little brewery just down the road was lovely and the welcome basket was much appreciated as the nearest shop is a little drive away. Would thoroughly recommend and would love to return one day.

  • "The cottage was beyond what we expected and spotlessly clean."

    The owners left a thoughtful and extensive welcome basket and small additions to the property like soaps, disposable BBQ and binoculars really made all the difference. It felt like the owners really wanted us to get the most out of our time in the cottage. Catching the ferry saved so much time and the fact that the ferry times were sent by Sykes a few days before our stay was very helpful and much appreciated. I would just say that the 9.30 pm last ferry does need factoring in to nights out to avoid the hour long drive round the Loch. It was a real shame that the village pub was closed due to a fire but this was no reflection on the cottage and the pub was due to open again in a few weeks.

  • "The only thing that I would say to any future guests is that when booking any trips requiring the ferry."

    Avoid Sunday mornings as it seems that’s when they do any maintenance on the Corran Ferry. We had booked the Jacobite train to Mallaig and the Ferry wasn’t ready for sailing so we had to drive the long way round to get to Fort William on time. That was a 45 minute round trip we did not plan for.

  • "Superb stay and perfect location at the Apartment."

    The welcome pack was the best we have ever had and the Apartment was lovely and warm on our arrival. We will definitely stay here again.

The property

Ardgour 6 miles.

The Apartment boasts an elevated position overlooking the bleak waters of Loch Linnhe, near the village of Ardgour on the Scottish mainland.

With some of the country's most popular attractions within easy reach, this cosy bolthole is ideal for couples seeking adventure.

Climb the external steps and up onto the decked terrace, and from here you can see as far as the Corran Ferry, on a crisp, clear morning.

Inside you will be welcomed by an open-plan living room exuding a contemporary feel throughout with dual aspect windows streamed in natural light, enhancing the bright colour schemes and textures.

Set within wooden frames, they complement the worktops and fixtures, almost reflected in the wood floors sweeping across the room, curl up on the L-shape sofa and listen to the gentle tapping of the rain on the skylight above you, while you enjoy a film together, whereas on a bright, summer's day, they flood the room with sunlight.

A well-appointed kitchen sits in one corner of the room where you can rustle up delicious home-cooked meals during your stay, and from here you will come to the shower room displaying modern fixtures and an all-white finish.

The double room is just as cosy as the sitting area, again with uplifting colours to brighten your mood, use the raised terrace for sitting out and enjoying the scenery before sipping on a mug of something hot, finishing the day nicely.

Known as the gateway to the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, this peaceful village of Ardgour offers a wonderful base for you to walk, climb and explore, allowing an adventurous getaway for ramblers and nature lovers.

Ardnamurchan Point Lighthouse is an extremely popular attraction in the area, found at the most westerly point on the mainland, and well worth a visit to delve into history.

Fort William can be accessed by road or by ferry and hosts a variety of shops, and pubs as well as a plethora of walking opportunities, perfect for a day of shopping where you can stock up on essentials before tucking into a classic pub grub away from the kitchen.

Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, offers two main walking routes, and the Nevis Range attracts thrill seekers and ski enthusiasts from all over the country.

This charming retreat is in an ideal location for discovering the awe and wonder of the West Highlands.
