    “Lovely quiet spot and the property is comfortable, very clean and has everything you need with views of Ben Nevis and the surrounding farmland.”

    ...

    Fort William is only minutes away with Morrisons, M&S and plenty of other services. After reading the last review, I was a little apprehensive but the shower works absolutely fine now and there was no evidence of mice in the house. Everthing was immaculately clean. There are a lot of nesting birds in the roofline, a resident owl in a tree outside the living room window and given the rural location, I've no doubt there are mice around. It was lovely to see the lambs and calfs skipping around. ( hence dogs must be controlled at all times) The property is ideal for an adult group as there are steep stairs, to the upstairs living area. The outside space is certainly not safe for children to play or loose dogs. To be fair you are warned about this in the welcome email. A fishing office shares the ground floor and I got definite vibes of resentment from some of the fisherman. Most of them seemed to drive at excessive speed over the cattle grid into the yard at the front door and one evening, while I was visiting the bins , I was almost run over. No apology- just a scowl . Arrival instructions include parking instructions and restrictions regarding visiting the adjacent river- both so as not to inconvenience the fishermen. The last quarter mile to the property is on a single track road with no passing places. I would recommend the property as a base for a walking holiday but its not great if you want to spend time relaxing at your holiday home in good weather. The outdoor space is sadly not developed for the Steadings guests safe use.

The property

Fort William 5.5 miles.

Resting north of the bustling town of Fort William, with breath-taking views of the iconic mountain peak, Ben Nevis, is this stone-built semi detached dwelling, Camisky Steading.

Set within a rural location and surrounded by the glorious mountain range and the majestic River Lochy, this dwelling is perfect for a relaxing getaway for a family holiday to Scotland.

After an action-packed afternoon, be welcomed in by the contemporary styling and everything you could possibly need during a week-long break.

Step into the spacious kitchen/diner, where the designated chef of the group will find everything you could possibly need to whip up hearty evening meals before the rest of the group gather at the dining table to plan the next day’s adventure.

Completing the ground floor is a dry room, where you are welcomed to store your muddy walking boots and rain coats after a day exploring the surrounding countryside.

Venture up the staircase and relax into your evening within the sitting room, where you can curl up on the sofa which rests in front of a roaring woodburning stove.

Alternatively, dip into the bathtub and enjoy a soak whilst taking in the superb views of Ben Nevis with a deserved glass of wine in-hand.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to one of the well-presented bedrooms, each boasting a bright and airy colour palette, spectacular views and ample storage to store all of your holiday essentials.

Choose between two super king-size bedrooms and a twin bedroom, each offering zip/link beds to ensure a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit your group.

If you can tear yourself away from this tranquil setting, venture to the bustling town Fort William, where you will find a selection of pubs serving Scotch whisky, delicious dining options and a number of shops for picking up the essentials.

Within the surrounding area you will find opportunities for fishing within the nearby river, excellent mountain biking and even an opportunity to ride on the steam train which was used in the Harry Potter films.

Alternatively, choose to walk up Ben Nevis, where you will be rewarded by panoramic views of the surrounding lochs and mountains.

Camisky Steading is a refreshing base to come back to each evening after exploring the surrounding countryside.
