  • "Has a wonderful stay at Masada, the trip to Fort William was our first and will not be our last."

    Communication was excellent and the cottage had the most breathtaking views. Unfortunately just before our stay we were notified the hot tub was out of action

  • "Masada is a spacious and comfortable house, in an excellent location for walking and sightseeing."

    The newly fitted kitchen and bathrooms are lovely. Staying as a group of 10 friends, we particularly appreciated the excellent showers, with loads of hot water. We also loved the fact that there were plentiful appliances (three fridge-freezers, two dish-washers) and a great selection of glassware and crockery. The owner was extremely quick to respond when we needed to contact him. We would thoroughly recommend a stay at Masada House.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Masada."

    Even with a large group of 14 there was lots of space for dining and socialising. It's a fantastic house and the location and views could not be better if you want a highland retreat for a large group. Easy access to the village and near lots of amazing forest, hill and loch side walks. The kitchen is very well equipped and we cooked family meals every day with plenty of space for company for the chefs. The hot tub was a great addition. I'd have no second thoughts to recommend Masada or to stay here again. Great value, thank you!

  • "A lovely property with a super kitchen."

    We loved the aga! The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable as were the lounge and dining room. The bathrooms need updating but were adequate for our stay. Great communication with the owner and maintenance man. Lovely hot tub too! Good location for a Ben Nevis climb!

  • "A beautiful house with outstanding view."

    The kitchen was imaginatively modernised and well equipped, keeping in mind the number of people who would be using it. The decoration in bedrooms and living rooms was sympathetic to their original period, giving a good ambiance to the house. The only drawback was the bathrooms, which were adequate if you weren’t too fussy! The lock on the back door gave problems, but the response from the caretaker was very prompt. The hot tub was much enjoyed, with no midges in sight!

    You are very welcome! We are very glad you had a good time. Come back any time! Property Owner

  • "Our Masada stay was excellent."

    Great facilities; with a wonderful dining room; each room beautiful & spacious; very well equipped kitchen/laundry; great views; would highly recommend. Would recommend more garbage bags; the thermostat needs more explanation perhaps? (seemed cool at times & had to increase temperatures but couldn’t work out how to manage); tea towels & hot tub towels provided would have been appreciated as part of the package.

The property

Sitting in the enviable location of Spean Bridge, Scottish Highlands with outstanding views of the Ben Nevis mountain range is this large, detached house of Masada.

An ideal base for a large family of 14's getaway, not only does the house boast views, but access to climbing, watersports and nature reserves.

When arriving at the marvellous property, park up in one of the six off-road spaces, before soaking up the glorious vista and mature gardens surrounding Masada.

Continue inside, where a fabulous hallway with seating and a grand piano welcomes you.

Make your way into a spacious sitting room, where those exceptional views are framed by the bay windows and three plush sofas offer you a seat in front of the crackling open fire and the TV.

After unwinding with your loved ones, move through the property to the fantastic kitchen/diner, a space boasting a great array of appliances that will appease any aspiring chef.

Just off the kitchen is the utility, where two double fridges, two freezers and laundry facilities can be found.

When dinner has been fixed up, enjoy it over a bottle of wine in the formal dining room with your loved ones.

Freshen up before bed in one of four bathrooms, with two of these located on the ground floor, a shower room and a cloakroom with a separate WC, and the latter two situated on the first floor, consisting of a contemporary bathroom enjoying both a bath and a walk-in shower, as well as an additional shower room.

When sleep calls, choose one of seven tastefully decorated bedrooms to rest in, one of which is situated on the ground floor that is ideal for multi-generational breaks, and the other six bedrooms resting upstairs.

Completing the interior of the property is a drying room, where you can neatly store away any ski, watersports and climbing gear.

To the rear of the property is a large, enclosed garden which offers a large lawn for you and your three canine companions to enjoy, as well as a patio for alfresco dining.

Get to know Spean Bridge and wander into the heart of the village where three fantastic eateries, including the popular bar/restaurant of Old Station, along with the marvellous Spean Bridge Golf Club and the winding River Spean await.

Those seeking some adventure will certainly enjoy excursions to the Ben Nevis mountain range, where the dramatic sights of Ben Nevis, Stobe Coire Easain and Chno Dearg can be climbed; the range is also home to a superb ski resort, where you can strap on your skis and spend a day on the slopes!

Spend some time in Caol, a coastal village with a quaint beach, along with the sights of Old Inverlochy Castle and the famed Ben Nevis Distillery.

There is still so much more waiting to be discovered in the wider area, with Fort William offering memorable days out for all the family, as well as the nearby Lochs, Allt Mhuic Butterfly and Glen Roy National Nature Reserves appealing to those nature enthusiasts of the group.

A brilliant stay amidst the stunning Scottish Highlands awaits you and those who mean most at Masada!
