    “For those of you who want a cottage that is pretty central for the Highlands we couldn't recommend this cottage enough.”

    The owners actually live next door, which is handy if there are problems, but after the initial greeting they never bothered us once. The directions to get to the cottage are spot on. The beds were very comfortable and there are adequate kitchen utensils for making your own meals, if you want to. As to food shopping, there is a Spar shop in Speanbridge and there is a large Aldi, a large M&S Foodhall, a large Home Bargains and a large Morrisons in and close to Fort William, which is not far ...

    The owners actually live next door, which is handy if there are problems, but after the initial greeting they never bothered us once. The directions to get to the cottage are spot on. The beds were very comfortable and there are adequate kitchen utensils for making your own meals, if you want to. As to food shopping, there is a Spar shop in Speanbridge and there is a large Aldi, a large M&S Foodhall, a large Home Bargains and a large Morrisons in and close to Fort William, which is not far away, so plenty to choose from. The cafe in Speanbridge is good for food during the day, even do a good breakfast and if you want something just a bit special we can highly recommend the Old Pines Hotel and Restaurant next door, where the service and food were really good. There are plenty of places to visit within driving distance, however, there is also a lovely walk just across the road, if you cross the road you will see some wooden steps which lead to a gravel footpath, if you turn right the footpath leads you to the Commando memorial, if you turn left there is a lovely, safe, fume free walk into Speanbridge, where you can join further footpaths and walks, it is called the Highbridge Footpath. Finally, there is the fantastic view, from the lounge window, of the Nevis Range, including Ben Nevis, that greets you each morning, weather permitting. As to the weather, there is no such thing as bad weather, just a bad choice of clothing!

The property

Resting adjacent to the owners cottage, this retreat is a breath of fresh air, with views over Ben Nevis creating a scenic backdrop.

Suited for couples or families, the interior has been thoughtfully designed with an almost country feel, to ensure you and your loved ones can unwind in comfort and style.

The open-plan setup includes a lounge with an electric woodburner, which sits in front of two sofas, elevating those cosy nights in.

Relax with your favourite movie on play, and take in the wonderful interior.

Further ahead, a delightful kitchen boasts a homely arrangement, complimented by a table for four, and a selection of appliances.

A natural landscape lies in the distance, which you can admire from the window, morning through to evening.

Two bedrooms will become your own little escape for some peace and quiet, the first comes as a double, and the second a twin, each joined by classic en-suite shower rooms.

Pine furniture and lovely bedding finish the cottage to a lovely standard.

For a change of scenery, stroll outside to the enclosed garden, which is really something special, with its own pond and beautiful mountain views.

Standing amidst the junction of roads north to Inverness and the Isle of Skye, this village makes an excellent choice with its wide selection of outdoor activities including hill-walking, climbing, watersports and wildlife watching.

The Great Glen Way and West Highland Way are two long distance walks which pass through the area, and close by, Fort William lies on the banks of Loch Linnhe, boasting a wide variety of shops and pubs.

A one-of-a-kind cottage in a relaxing location.
