  • "Lovely cottage, warm ,cosy and everything you will need for a good holiday."

    Nice location about 15/20 minute walk into the centre of Fort William and ideal for touring round the highlands. Would definitely stay again. The only point I would like to point out to other dog owners is that it is not secure for small dogs. It didnt cause us any concern but may affect others.
