    Its a superb modern accomodation, in a stunning location, which was well equipped and clean. Cozy, and the beds were very comfortable. The views are amazing. The welcome pack provided was much appreciated, and the owners were great at keeping in touch prior to our visir, and advising us of adverse travel conditions in the area. Many thanks

    Really well equipped and very comfortable. Comfy beds, great shower…..and nice gel. Fantastic spot to relax after a day on the hills. Sitting on the terrace and looking across the loch to the hills was a great spot for breakfast

    Hi Tim Sounds like you had a great holiday and hopefully you marked a few Munro’s off you list. Really pleased you had everything you needed at Lochy Lookout and had a relaxing stay.

  • "Lovely place, comfortable and well equipped."

    Good location. Had a lovely time. The only criticism is that it could have been cleaner. There was dirt under one of the settees and cobwebs and dust in the hall way behind the umbrella container and in the twin bedroom down by the lockers. Having said this it did not stop us having a great time.

    Hi Margaret Really glad you had a great time at Lochy Lookout but sorry to hear you thought the apartment wasn’t clean enough. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and I will be contacting the cleaners to explain what you found. Hopefully we will see you back in the near future.

    Wonderful view over the loch with chairs on the patio to soak up any sunshine you're lucky enough to get. Lots of hillwalking in the area and it was great to have a bath to soak those tired legs. A nice bonus was Netflix on the smart TV for those rainy nights. Would definitely recommend.

    Hi Stewart Thank you for your feedback which is much appreciated. Really glad you had a great time and got to climb a few local Munro’s.

  • "10/10 for everything, where to begin!"

    Lochy Lookout is a stunningly decorated, clean, and comfortable apartment with incredible views, the perfect location, and a feeling of being the only one around for miles despite there being multiple other units. We could not have asked for better accommodation! We got lucky and ended up being one of few families staying at the time, so it was so quiet and peaceful, but even if all of the other units were taken we feel it would still be just as quiet and relaxing. We arrived to an incredible and uninterrupted panoramic view of Loch Lochy, and a packet of Tunnocks teacakes (funnily enough our favourite, thank you for this gesture!), there was plenty of space for clothes, with a wardrobe in each bedroom which is certainly rare! From the first moment we felt at home, and we were truly sad to leave. We have already booked for 2024! Pros: - The showers are amazing! - The view and decoration is breathtaking - It’s kept extremely clean - Everything is modern, plush, clean and user friendly - A logged in Netflix account and great tv variety - Well equipped kitchen - Comfortable sofas and beds - Dishwasher and washer/dryer, means we can bring less clothes next time! - Easily accessible parking where you can see your vehicle from the apartment - Great base to travel out from to see different places Cons (these in no way impacted our stay, it was possibly the best holiday we’ve had) - The washer dryer is quite loud when on spin - The hob was temperamental (easily avoidable if you bring food that just needs an oven/microwave) The only other con was that we had to leave! Thank you again to Georgie and Mike for a perfect stay in your beautiful part of Scotland, a place that feels like time stood still!

    Dear Thomas & Samantha Firstly thank you for your wonderful feedback and are thrilled that you have decided to rebook for next year. We are so pleased the Pro’s outweighed the Cons and will look into the washing machine and the hob when we visit in May. With the hob being Induction we might need to look at the saucepans. Thanks again Mike & Georgie. Property Owner

    Very beautifully decorated and comfortable and warm. It was good having two bathrooms. The walks from the cottage along the disused railway line seeing the deer was brilliant as was the walk down to Loch side. Parking space for one car right outside next to property . All good. If there was one point to mention that a bigger freezer would have been better with 4 adults staying. But apart it was a really pleasant time away with our family . Thank you

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at Lochy Lookout and, in over ten years of self-catering holidays, would rate it as one of the best places we have ever stayed!"

    It is evident a great deal of thought has gone into every aspect of the apartment: the beds were wonderfully comfortable, the shower was powerful, the kitchen was very well-equipped with appliances and utensils of a high standard and the furniture and decor was tasteful and homely. The welcome gift of shortbread was much appreciated! I cannot write enough about the spectacular view! It was simply breathtaking, and the fact that the apartment is located in such quiet and peaceful surroundings meant you could relax and enjoy the scenes for hours. We were disappointed that the deer that so many previous visitors talked about in the guest book didn't make an appearance for us, but we did befriend a shrew who kept popping out from a hole to the left of the bird feeder outside. We also had regular visits from chaffinches and robins. The place proved a good base for exploring the Highlands, with Fort William, Ben Nevis, Fort Augustus and Loch Ness all within short drives. We would also recommend visitors take a drive around Loch Lochy; the ancient woodland on the other side was beautiful. All in all, an absolute gem of a place which we would definitely return to.

    Hi Sumera Thank you so much for your lovely feedback . We are so pleased you had a great stay and you had everything you needed. Sorry to hear you didn’t get an appearance from the local deer.

    The accommodation is perfectly situated for travelling to and from places of interest, especially if like us you wanted to cram as much into your holiday as possible. We ate in the apartment every evening and why not when it’s so well equipped. We know that we don’t have to transport so much on our next visit because the property is so well equipped to suit all of your needs. We definitely plan to return as soon as next year because this really is the most perfect place for staying at, and for staying in when you need to recharge! A light and area apartment, clean, tidy, well laid out. Brilliant kitchen and bathroom facilities, dishwasher, washing machine/ dryer, lovely warm showers, good quality soaps, it even has egg cups :-) all of this is welcomed and makes a difference, makes you feel cared about. A great base for visiting Isle of Skye, Inverness, Glencoe, Aviemore, the Cairngorms, Oban and only about an hours drive from the ferry over to Mull. We’ve already shared the information for Lochy Lookout with friends because I’d want them to experience the same good fortune that we have over the past two weeks. A lucky find for us, a pure gem, the perfect retreat when on holiday. Thank you for allowing us to stay at Lochy Lookout, it really was a treat!

Lochy Lookout is a wonderful ground-floor apartment nestled in the quiet area of Invergloy near Spean Bridge, Lochaber.

Arrive with ease thanks to the off-road parking space in front of the property, before stepping inside to your new home-away-from-home.

Kick off your shoes in the handy porch area and head straight into the heart of the apartment, an open-plan living space with large patio doors framing spectacular views; the perfect backdrop for enjoying breakfast with your loved ones before the day's adventures.

Prepare picnics and delicious home-cooked meals in the sleek kitchen area, complete with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and an all-important coffee maker to energise your mornings.

Snuggle up on the sofa with a good book or enjoy a movie night on the TV, before catching your rest in one of two bedrooms.

The neighbouring twin room is perfect for two younger guests, whilst the double offers extra privacy with an en-suite shower room.

Wash the day away in the contemporary family bathroom with a bath for longer soaks or a shower over for quick rinses.

Make the most of the breath-taking views by savouring your morning coffee on the outdoor patio, watching the sunrise over Lochy Loch, or lay down a blanket on the lawn area for the perfect family picnic.

Take a break from cooking and head up the road to The Lochside Brasserie for delightful meals and a well-earned drink at the outdoor seating area overlooking the Loch.

For excellent amenities and attractions, Spean Bridge is a short journey away and an ideal base for exploring the highlands, with a convenience store to stock up on self-catering essentials, as well as the famous Commando Memorial and panoramic viewpoint.

Just south of the village lies Leanachan Forest, scattered with mountain biking trails and dramatic views towards Ben Nevis and Aonach More.

Head further south west to Fort William, known as the outdoor capital of the UK; breathe in the fresh mountain air, marvel at the ruins of the 13th-century Old Inverlochy Castle or test your swing at Fort William Golf Club.

Fuel up in one of the many eateries before setting off to climb Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain, or take a gentle stroll along the loch to discover some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Journey north from Lochy Lookout to Fort Augustus at the southern tip of Loch Ness, with fantastic mountain vistas, breath-taking walks including the Great Glen Way, whilst Caledonian Canal Centre & Lock Chambers tells the history of the canal.

Take a cruise up Loch Ness to take in the fabulous views where you can spot the romantic ruins of Urquhart Castle looming over the Loch.
