  • "Absolutely beautiful."

    Furnished to a very high standard but most of all spotlessly clean. Great location, quiet, secluded, pitch black at night. Would definitely recommend this place. 60 second walk to the loch. 20 min drive to Fort William.

  • "This holiday lodge is located in a beautiful spot with stunning views of the mountains and loch."

    The lodge is well-equipped and comfortable, and the owners are friendly and helpful. However, there is a construction site next door at the moment, which can be very noisy during the day. This may be a nuisance for some guests, but others may not mind it as much., Normally, this would be a great place to stay if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation with stunning views. Here are some pros and cons of the lodge: Pros: Stunning views of the mountains and loch. Well-equipped and comfortable lodge Cons: Construction site next door can be noisy during the day and may be a nuisance for some guests, but others may not mind it as much.We were unlucky to be there whilst the excavations were being carried out. Shame we were not informed beforehand.

  • "Thanks for a lovely stay, what a beautiful setting."

    The chalet was fab, very comfortable and good facilities. I would only suggest a couple of improvements that felt like a bit of a hazard with a toddler I.e. fix the fencing round the decking area as felt like it might fall off, and on all the venetian blinds add the child safety part so the cords aren't hanging down (some have this already bit not all).

  • "A lovely comfortable chalet in a great location."

    This chalet is the only one so not part of a large managed site which means it is nice and quiet. All that can be heard are the sound of sheep in the next field. It is situated about 15 miles from Fort William so not too far to get shopping etc… would highly recommend this chalet for anyone wanting to stay slightly off the beaten track. We will definitely be staying here again.

    Very comfortable and well kept chalet a real home from home with all the facilities that you require and some thoughtful extras, fresh milk, eggs, flowers and biscuits. View of the loch is stunning and the adjacent farm a delight to watch the young calf chasing the geese. Owner nearby if needed but provides plenty of privacy. Lovely relaxing holiday to recharge the batteries

    Some nice touches from the owners too...fresh flowers and some fresh eggs, which were amazing. The location is very peaceful, with a lovely outlook towards the loch and the mountains. It is also a good base for exploring the area. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely return.

  • "The chalet was a lovely place to stay in general."

    However, it required some work i.e extractor fan and outside light not working. Fridge door did not shut properly, entrance floor very wobbly i.e potentially damaged and wet underneath. Chalet could have been cleaned to a higher standard with a bit of dust and hairs in the bathroom. Some windows did not shut especially in the front room and could seriously do with a TV in each room. Location was not easy to find but local people provided directions. Owner was very nice and helpful and did not interfere with our stay. Animals in neighbouring field provided evening entertainment for the whole family!

    Gorgeous views over Loch Eil. Good location as base for lots of sightseeing, but bit remote ID you need supplies urgently. Would definitely recommend getting groceries on way to chalet.

  • "Brilliant! A lovely, comfortable, clean and cosy chalet, with SPECTACULAR views."

    To wake up, open the curtains and see the loch and the mountains in all their glory was like a picture postcard that changed every day. The sheepdogs in the neighbouring field entertained us daily with the sheep and the owners chickens came to visit day and night. Their eggs were also delicious. Nevis was climbed, lochs were cruised, wine and whisky were drunk on the deck and all in all a wonderful holiday. As for the weather!? First time I’ve been able to say we had no rain at all!, just beautiful sun. ☀️ Ross the owner was very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Highly recommended!

  • "Holiday was fantastic."

    Accommodation was lovely the view was stunning. I normally have trouble sleeping in different beds but this was comfortable even for my 6ft husband, the single beds are on the small size not quite big enough for adults but they did sleep ok in them. Can't fault accommodation for cleanliness. Our only tiny thing wrong was there is not enough seating in the lounge only a 2 seater sofa and 1 chair not ideal for 4 adults, we did bring a garden chair in with cushions on it was ok. But nothing to spoil our holiday. Great location as well. Would definitely recommend and will try to get back again in the future.
