  • “All the right stuff in the right place for an easy n relaxed week by the Caledonian Canal and locks.”

    From coffee to washing powder, tumble dryer to egg poacher, its a great location to base yourself for an amazing highland break under the shadow of the Ben.

Whilst retaining its traditional charm, this Fort William cottage benefits from a lovely contemporary bathroom and all modern conveniences.

This Fort William cottage is ideal for a family group who want to explore the highlands and perhaps take part in some of the numerous outdoor pursuits on offer here.

The accommodation in this cottage near Fort William is all on one level, and includes two spacious bedrooms offering flexible sleeping arrangements.

The cosy sitting room has a woodburning stove, a reclining leather suite and a great bay window allowing for full appreciation of the fabulous mountain views.

A private driveway leads up to the cottage, and the natural garden has a rear gate that leads directly out to the Caledonian Canal and Neptune's Staircase.

A short walk across the canal bridge will bring you to a lovely pub and restaurant literally on your (back) doorstep!

The bustling town of Fort William is very close by and offers great facilities for dining and shopping.

There are boat trips on Loch Linnhe, an excellent museum in the centre of town and of course for the more active a walk up the UK's highest mountain Ben Nevis.

You may wish to journey into Glencoe to the visitors centre or tour the west coast and see the magnificent Glenfinnan monument where Bonnie Prince Charlie came ashore in 1745.

So much to do and see from your cottage near Fort William, you will just love it!

About the location


Fort William 4.5 miles.

Corpach is the point where the mighty Caledonian Canal reaches the sea, home to the series of locks known as Neptune's Staircase, the longest of its type in the UK. Here also is the Snowgoose Mountain Centre where you can indulge in canoeing, kayaking, sailing and mountain walking as well as winter climbing. For a less energetic experience, visit Treasures of the Earth, Europe's finest private collection of crystals, gemstones and fossils. Nearby is the key Highland town of Fort William, a haven for shoppers, seafood enthusiasts and also the outdoor enthusiast, nestling as it does at the foot of the UK's highest mountain, Ben Nevis. Enjoy unrivalled views of Ben Nevis from its neighbouring mountain Aonach Beag, or take the mountain gondola up Aonach Mor for wonderful views and a spot of lunch. Nevis Range ski resort caters for all winter sports and also provides world class mountain biking facilities in the summer. In early May each year the famous 6 day Trials Bike event is based in Fort William. A superb base for this beautiful part of Scotland.
