  • "We had a fantastic stay at The Loft, an ideal size for my husband and I."

    The views across to the Nevis Range were great and the peaceful location was super. The Loft was modern, clean and we would definitely stay again. It was perfect for visiting the Glenfinnan Viaduct, Ben Nevis, Loch Lomond, Morar Beach, Isle of Skye.

  • "Our second stay in The Loft."

    It is an excellent place to stay in a perfect setting. It has everything you could need and is always beautifully clean. Quiet and peaceful but also not far from essentials and some incredible places to visit. Our highlight was a day trip to Skye, a long day but so worth it.

  • "We had an amazing week at The Loft."

    The views from the balcony (or lounge when the weather didn't allow) were incredible, and the location perfect - it's nice and rural but still really easy to get to Fort William and Spean Bridge. The accommodation has everything you need, and is very cosy. Hopefully we'll be back one day!

  • "Another fantastic week staying at The Loft."

    Our only feedback is a Saturday to Saturday stay would be better as this would mean not having to take an additional day’s annual leave and having to drive a long distance on a Friday.

    Lynne was very welcoming & has clearly thought of everything to make her guests’ stays perfect & easy. Quality furnishings, bedding, equipment with plenty of hot water & powerful shower. I suppose the ultimate compliment would be, would we return? Absolutely we would!

    Lynne is very friendly and welcoming. It is a lovely home, clean, comfortable, very well equipped, in an amazing setting with such incredible views!

    The views are amazing and the loft is close by to Fort William. It’s the little touches though that made this a real home from home. Satellite TV, Netflix. A Nespresso coffee maker with a selection box of coffees to try too! Friendly and welcoming owners too so I’m very happy with my choice this year.

The property

In view of the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis, The Loft is a contemporary cottage nestled on the outskirts of Spean Bridge in the Scottish Highlands.

Offering two couples an excellent base for walking and cycling adventures, The Loft is within easy reach of popular spots like Fort William, Loch Ness, and the Nevis Range, with ferries to Skye too.

Come in to the front door and discover a handy washing machine on the ground floor, as well as the sleek shower room complete with a walk-in shower.

Head up the timber staircase and into the first-floor open-plan living space, a relaxing space to unwind following full days of adventure, with a fully fitted kitchen to rustle up delicious meals.

Gather at the dining area or relax on the soft seating whilst enjoying some TV, or head out onto the fabulous balcony to soak up the gorgeous views over to Ben Nevis as you sip a refreshing glass of wine.

Finish the day by settling down in one of the two double bedrooms, offering a tranquil spot to catch your rest.

Just a few miles down the road is the centre of Spean Bridge, a Highland village taking its name from the River Spean that runs through it, with a collection of local amenities to make use of during your stay, including shops, a pub/restaurant, and a café.

Less than a ten-minute drive away is the Nevis Range Mountain Resort, with mountain gondola rides offering panoramic views of the range, tree-climbing courses, and of course excellent skiing and biking opportunities.

Venture down to Fort William to play a round on the excellent Fort William Golf Club course in the shadow of the mountains, take a tour around the Ben Nevis Distillery, wander the ruins of Old Inverlochy Castle and sample the great selection of restaurants and pubs here too.

Take walks around the waters of Loch Eil, marvel at Neptune's Staircase, a series of locks built in the 19th century, or enjoy a Fort William Sea Tour.

Keen walkers can organise an epic hike to a handful of viewpoints along the mountain range, as well as explore the lower forest walks of Leanachan Forest resting on the lower slopes of Aonach Mor, whilst the main event of Ben Nevis can be walked via the Ben Nevis Tourist Path spanning 4 miles each way.

Also in the area is the beautiful Steall Waterfall, measuring a whopping 120 metres in height, an unforgettable sight.

Take your adventures further by getting a ferry over to Skye, heading up to Loch Ness to spot the monster, or entering the magnificent Cairngorms National Park.

Discover the wonders of the Highlands from your doorstep at The Loft.
