  • "The property was perfect for us."

    We had six adults and a baby and there was plenty of space for everyone. The deer we saw regularly from the house were lovely and we even saw a red squirrel. House was very well equipped and very clean. We would certainly go back if we holiday in this area again. The owner was also very approachable and helpful. Excellent.

  • "Lovely property with lots to do in the area and beyond, the owner is a lovely lady very helpful and pleasant."

    My wife and I had a great time with the added bonus of feeding the deer that came down from the woods adjoining the back garden to greet us.

  • "This holiday home is really wonderful."

    Very comfortable and well equipped. The location is fantastic, plenty of lovely walks to do, right from your doorstep. Deer visit daily and love a carrot or some apple. The hot tub is a lovely bonus, we were watching shooting stars at night, very romantic. The lodge owner is very friendly and helpful. I'm sure if you needed anything, they would be able to help. Plenty of books and DVDs at the lodge, so you wouldn't need to bring much. Even a pair of binoculars to spot the deer in the 'deer room'. A great big TV in the lounge, sky TV, free WIFI, a wood burning stove for chilly nights. All the items you could ever need in the kitchen. We had the most wonderful stay, we most definitely will return to this lodge for another holiday. One of the best we have ever stayed in, if not the best. Thank you very much for providing this most fantastic holiday home with so many home comforts, too many to list. We highly recommend!

  • "Riverbank House was beautiful the pictures do not do it justice, what a beautiful home in a beautiful setting."

    Correspondence with owner was excellent. The house has everything you need and the hot tub is a great size. Beds were very comfortable and rooms are very spacious. We had trips to Oban, Fort William, Fort Augustus and Glencoe and saw some breathtaking scenery, we also had a visit to Morar beach which was beautiful, white sand and clear water. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    Thanks for the great feedback Debra, we are so glad that you had a great visit. Property Owner

  • "The house gave us a real home from home."

    The interior is lovely and the house is very spacious. It is situated down a very quiet lane and is great for seeing birds and animals and on a clear night there is a stunning night sky view. The location was ideal for us to explore the West Highlands and has good road and rail connections as well as great eating options close by.

    Thank you for the feedback Graham, it is much appreciated and we are glad to hear you had a good stay. Property Owner

    Light, airy, spacious and spotlessly clean. The facilities were outstanding and the attention to detail impressive. There was plenty of information provided on things to do and recommendations of where to eat (the local Inn was excellent) The location of the property is so peaceful and a great place for walks.

  • "An exemplary holiday home in a perfect setting."

    The owner has put alot of thought and attention into the property which provides everything you could possibly need for the ultimate home from home experience. The house is in a great location too with so many amazing walks and sites from the doorstep. The daily visits from the local deer family were just the icing on the cake! The only negative is that a week is just not long enough to fit everything in.

    Our only criticism, which is simply personal choice, we found the beds very hard and didn’t sleep well. However the hot tub helped fix our backs. Would totally return and recommend 100 percent.

    Hi Karl, thank you for the feedback. Unfortunately where mattresses are concerned it really is personal preference and I tried very hard by selecting good quality mattresses that I thought would be suitable for most. But we are glad to hear your stay was good otherwise. Property Owner

    The house was spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable. All three bedrooms are a good size and it was really nice to have the three bath/shower rooms. The 'Stag Room' study was a great space for anyone preferring a good book to the television. Location blissfully quiet! We had a lovely holiday.

    We honestly couldn’t recommend it enough, the local stag with three legs is a little gem. ( we named it stumpy) loves carrots & apples. Having the hot tub with the sunshine we had that week was 10stars. It’s so cosy with the log fire on in the evenings. Having quite a few outdoor hobbies like cycling and wildlife photography I was just in the right place. So much to visit up in Scotland. We loved every minute, and for sure we will go again.

About the location


Fort William 11.5 miles; Inverness 58 miles;

Roy Bridge which in Gaelic is Drochaid Ruaidh meaning "the bridge over the Roy" is a small friendly highland village situated some 3 miles east of the bigger village of Spean Bridge in the Scottish Highlands. There is a craft shop, cafe and two hotels where good service, good food and good cask ales are assured. The larger village of Spean Bridge has a well stocked village shop, woollen mill and several cafes and restaurants. Close by is the famous Commando Memorial which stands some 17ft high, and comprises a group of three bronze Commandos dressed in typical World War Two uniforms. This is a haunting and popular stop off for visitors and was built to commemorate their training ground in this area. The vibrant town of Fort William is a short drive away and from here guests can venture a little further south and visit the Glencoe Museum and learn more about the infamous massacre.
