The property

This delightful, detached property, Gorrie's Lair, is nestled in the quaint village of Spean Bridge, ideally positioned between Inverness and Fort Williams, with transport links to reach both destinations.

Located near Scotland's marvellous Commando Memorial and just a stone's throw away from a brewery and village shop, this charming cottage is idyllic for a small family looking to explore this spectacular area.

Be greeted by a lengthy driveway, providing two off-road parking spaces, where you can leave your vehicle and discover the large lawn before you.

Gorrie's Lair is a picturesque home, with blue shutters on the exterior announcing the rustic charm of the home.

Step inside to find a well-equipped kitchen/diner, where you can prepare home-cooked meals in the electric cooker and take advantage of the dishwasher to assist you with the cleaning.

Settle down at the dining table, with the gentle glow of the woodburning stove to set a relaxing ambiance as you tuck into a tasty meal together.

After dinner, climb upstairs to unwind in the sitting room, sink into the plush sofa and escape reality with the TV, which offers a firestick for a movie marathon.

The first floor also offers a stylish bathroom, savour a moment of relaxation in the tub to prepare for a night's embrace and keep your towel toasty on the heated rail for a hug of warmth after your soak.

A spacious double bedroom is adjacent to the bathroom, with ample storage to house your belongings, or travel downstairs to discover a twin bedroom, which has access to a Jack-and-Jill shower room.

In the morning, enjoy breakfast al-fresco-style in the front garden to admire the peaceful location; the garden boasts seating, a barbecue to relish on sunnier days and a tennis court to release your competitive side.

A short stroll will bring you to Glen Spean Brewing Co, a brewery with a fantastic selection of beers and wines to sample and also discover a convenience store to stock up on tasty treats.

A scenic drive will bring you to the stunning town of Fort William, home to sandy beaches, grand hills and castles; climb Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, or walk along the glorious Great Glen Way for dramatic views over Scotland.

Head up north to the city of Inverness, offering a wealth of attractions, including 19th-century Inverness Cathedral, an indoor Victorian market at the heart of the city, as well as a museum and art gallery to immerse yourself in the history and culture of this amazing city.

For an unforgettable escape to the Scottish Highlands, stay at Gorrie's Lair.
