    Great facilities and spacious. Views to Ben Nevis fantastic. Quiet location but not too far to nip into Fort William. Owner contacted us before and during our stay to check everything was ok, which it was. Would recommend

  • "Oak cottage was warm cosy and welcoming."

    It would benefit from having a hand towel each rather than one per bathroom. Exta frying pan and scissors. Plus coasters for both sitting rooms and tables. The house was well equipped and easy to live in. Beautiful views from almost all windows of Ben Nevis. Very comfortable beds.

    Thanks for the feedback. We have added the items you suggested to the house. Very glad you enjoyed the beautiful views from all the windows! And the comfy beds Property Owner

  • "This Cottage is in a fabulous setting and location."

    The views of Nevis range are exceptional depending on the weather obviously but on a clear moment it's stunning. Neptune's staircase is at the end of the road and Fort William literally round the corner. The owner of the cottage is on hand via messaging or phone call with any advice on the area or issues with the cottage or just general questions regarding your stay, he is absolutely brilliant. All in all we had a fantastic week and will always return to the Highlands.

    Thanks for the feedback, delighted you have enjoyed your stay and the great views of the North Face of Ben Nevis. It's a great place to explore the north west highlands. The bathroom floor should be fixed this week Property Owner

  • "The views from this house were staggeringly beautiful, and made any other minor issues worth while."

    The kitchen was a bit under-equipped, the fridge was in poor state with no veg drawer. The owner had contacted us and apologised for the state of the downstairs bathroom floor, which we much appreciated. A lack of serving bowls, necessary in a party of 8. No light in downstairs en-suite. I think there were other things, but I cannot remember now, so they cannot have been that important. But these minor discomforts were more than compensated for by the magnificent views of Ben Nevis!

    Thank you for your feedback, and I am pleased you loved the views. The fridge has been repaired and I have purchased serving bowls thanks so much for the suggestion. The downstairs en suite light has now also been repaired. Property Owner

    Easy access by car to Fort William Clean and well equipped cottage - very spacious and comfortable ( only negative was no mirrors in Some bedrooms And in some of the bedrooms no wardrobes just a few draws so nowhere to hang clothes other than on hangers on a few coat hooks) But apart from this everything was spot on - we would definitely stay again and highly recommend Sykes and the cottage
