  • "Amazing location looking out across the loch."

    Great for visiting Fort William, Glenfinnan Viaduct (Harry Potter), Nevis Range, Mallaig, Inverness and Fort Augustus. Fantastic conservatory for dining and relaxing in, excellent living room with open fire and good kitchen facilities (Dishwasher OK but may need updating soon). Excellent facilities all round especially with the tight turnaround the owners have had since their purchase this year. We wish them well.
