  • "Holly House is stunning and is surrounded by amazing scenery."

    The perfect base for touring the Highlands or just to relax and unwind. We used the house to meet up with family, there were ten of us in total ( I had booked 9 originally but had to change at last minute. Sykes and the owners helped with this without any issues). The owners contacted us a week before visiting to help with any questions etc. We were all impressed with the size of the house, plenty of room to move about and how new yet homely it felt. We all enjoyed using the sauna and had a day of relaxing in the hot tub while taking in the snow topped mountains. Thanks Sykes for making booking easy but most of all Thanks to the owners for allowing us to stay in your stunning property.

The property

Spean Bridge 3 miles.

This is a beautiful detached house, in an elevated position, with far-reaching views to the Nevis mountain range, close to the lovely village of Spean Bridge in the Highland region of Scotland.

The house is situated in a great location for families or groups of friends to explore this stunning part of the country with a large parking area to the front to accommodate at least six cars.

From the large entrance vestibule with cloak cupboard there is a hallway leading through to a large open-plan sitting room with beautiful furniture and an oak dining table with leather chairs, which can seat ten people comfortably.

Completing this living area there is a woodburning stove and a bay window with mountain views and French doors out to a grassed area at the side with garden furniture and charcoal barbecue.

Double doors lead through to a fantastic and spacious well-equipped kitchen, including a very large fridge/freezer.

From this room there is a utility room/rear porch to hang your coats after exploring the surrounding area.

Also on the ground floor there is a cloakroom and a twin bedroom with en-suite shower room, which is Jack-and-Jill style to the hall.

Proceed up the solid oak open tread staircase to the large upper floor landing area with two chairs by the window where you can sit and relax, enjoying the fabulous views.

There are two super king-size double bedrooms, both with en-suite shower, basin and WC, and one of the bedrooms has a large balcony with furniture, also with awesome views.

There are two twin bedrooms and a family bathroom with large corner bath and separate shower.

Outside this fantastic house there is a lovely garden with furniture where you can wind down with a refreshing drink taking in the beautiful views to the Nevis mountain range.

A short drive takes you to the lovely village of Spean Bridge where you will find a selection of pubs, restaurants and shops.

The area is perfect for a selection of activities including cycling, walking, climbing and skiing.

The Caledonian Canal is a three minute walk from Holly House and the towpath to Fort William along the canal bank is perfect for walking or cycling into the town.

Fort William is just a short drive away and you could climb or walk up Ben Nevis.

Why not take the Corran Ferry across the Ardnamurchan Peninsula?

Thee are also ferries to Skye, Mull and the Outer Hebrides close at hand.

Alternatively, spend time at wonderful Glecoe.

The beautiful island of Skye is only an hour and a half drive away or you could take the ferry from Mallaig.

Whatever you plan to do, there is so much to see and experience and it is wonderful to come home to the beautiful Holly House after your busy days out.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.
