  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Little Danescroft."

    The accommodation was clean, comfortable, well equipped and we soon felt completely at home. We managed a mix of sightseeing and relaxation which was perfect for us. The scenery in the area is breathtaking, couldn’t get enough of it. Our hosts Helen and Paul were very accommodating, though left us to get on with things unless we asked them something. A great break which we would certainly recommend.

  • "The property is in a good location within walking distance of Corpach marina, railway station, a Co-op supermarket and the very interesting Treasures of the Earth museum."

    There are delightful views from the lounge and terrace over Loch Linnhe towards Fort William a few miles away. Everything was provided by the lovely owners. We really enjoyed our stay.

  • "A wonderful home from home with very hospitable, caring and helpful proprietors for whom, clearly, this is a labour of love."

    Very well equipped. Everything was as or exceeded the description. This is a lovely property elevated well above the road, close to Corpach station and bus route into Fort William and about 10 minutes walk from Great Glen Way. There are superb views of Ben Nevis and Loch Linnhe from the living room and outside patio. We spent a very happy week here without a car. Many thanks to Helen and Paul.

  • "Little Danescroft was great, a lovely annexe with everything we needed and beautiful views over Loch Linhe and Fort William."

    It is very close to Fort William and perfect for touring the Highlands. The railway station at Corpach is just a few minutes walk for the scenic train ride to Mallaigh. Helen is a wonderful host, so friendly and helpful. We felt quite sad to be leaving and would certainly recommend.

  • "Little Danescroft is situated in the perfect spot, and Helen is a lovely host!"

    The cottage itself is well equipped with everything you might need for your stay. It's warm, cosy and has the most spectacular views of Ben Nevis and Fort William. On a sunny morning there is no better place to have your coffee than on the lovely little patio! The cottage sits on a steep, sloping driveway which makes parking a little awkward. I also have a very slight mobility issue so found walking up and down the drive difficult. The television requires upgrading, we couldn't watch any of the ITV channels, and BBC is limited too. These few issues aside, we had a lovely week in Corpach, its a beautiful area to visit!

    Thank you Helen and Paul - welcoming, helpful and full of advice before and during our stay. Fantastic facilities and little touches of wine, snacks and fresh flowers. Useful maps and welcome pack and even let us borrow walking poles! Amazing views and great location to drive/train/bus to so many places to visit/walk/take in the endless views. We were so lucky with the great weather but it would have been just as good in the rain! Well worth the long journey, we hope to visit again. Thank you.

  • "When we booked the property the photographs were not the same as are now presented."

    The write up says the accommodation is semi detached and adjoining the owners property. In reality the accommodation is part of the owners house and there are owners rooms above the accommodation used by us. Movement above could be heard. There is a locked door into the rest of the house from the holiday accommodation and the owners landline telephone can be clearly heard. The phone rang late at night waking us up. The heating temperature and time is controlled by the owners.

    We are sorry that you feel the property has been misrepresented. This is of the upmost importance to us at Sykes and we are currently working to ensure we provide a clear and concise description for all future guests. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact our customer relations department, we are open 7 days a week, 9am-7pm. Property Owner

Very spacious and well equipped, this Highland cottage is ideal for a couple who want to explore this stunning area and perhaps participate in some of the many outdoor activities available here.

At the front of your Corpach cottage is a private patio area from which a quiet morning coffee or early evening glass of wine can be enjoyed.

The village of Corpach is on the A830, which is the famous 'Road to the Isles'.

Following this very scenic route, visitors can enjoy Glenfinnan, where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his 'Royal Standard' in 1745, and also see the Jacobite steam train passing through on its route to the west coast.

Continue west and you will find the wonderful white sands of Morar and the busy fishing port of Mallaig where you can take a boat across the sea to the Isle of Skye.

Fort William is a short drive from your Highland holiday home and here you will find excellent shopping opportunities and an array of outdoor pursuits to suit all ages.

This welcoming Corpach cottage is a true home from home in a beautiful part of the Highlands.
