  • "Lovely, cosy cottage in Glen Nevis."

    Comfortable beds, very clean. Good base for exploring the area.

  • "This is without doubt the worst property we have stayed in the UK."

    We arrived at 1515hrs on Saturday 04/05/24 and left at 0930hrs the following day having booked the week. Minor faults included broken kettle and toilet seat which would not stay up. The sofa was not as shown on photo,s but was a fabric sofa which was very tired and required a trip to the recycling centre. In general the cottage was in much need of a good renovation.

  • "A lovely, comfortable cottage that exceeded our expectations."

    Excellent location within east walking distance to Fort William town centre and the train station. Very convenient for walks in Glen Nevis and as a base for exploring further afield.

  • "Our new favourite cottage."

    Perfect position near town but with lovely walks right from the door. Lovely owner too who only introduced herself to ask us not to worry about the candle holder we'd broken. Lovely cottage, lovely location, lovely people. Highly recommended.

  • "3rd visit to this property."

    Clean and homely feel, ideal for the restful break we wanted. Can walk easily into town but also straight into the hills and countryside. Comfortable bed, love the open fire. If I had to be critical I would suggest the owners made a mistake not spending a bit more on the recent bathroom update. Although perfectly functional the new large shower cubical shouts out for a power shower.

  • "We enjoyed our stay and certainly would book again, should we be in the area."

    It is located a 10 to 15 minute walk from the shops, pubs and restraurants which was great. The only criticism is that the kitchen/diner was not really big enough to fit the table even though there was only 3 of us. I suspect that four adults would find this to be a problem.

Adventurers and explorers will be pleased to discover Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain is just a short distance from the cottage, perfect for those looking for a grand challenge.
