  • “It is very rare that you can say the photo's don't do a place justice.”

    In this case they don't.

    In this case they don't. Rowan Bank is a truly wonderful home away from home. Extremely well equipped, comfortable, spacious and beautifully located. Our only mini gripes were that there weren't any bigger mugs and that a pin code was needed to watch some catch up programmes on the Sky TV but honestly, none of that truly matters! I culd not have hoped to spend my 50th in a lovelier place and we will be back.

The property

Situated in the heart of the Scottish Highlands is this lovely holiday cottage, Rowanbank, a welcoming base for a large family or group of friends to rest during a rural retreat.

Rowanbank offers a stunning abode, just a short walk away from Spean Bridge village centre and its fantastic transport options.

Set over two floors, this homely dwelling welcomes you with a stunning social hub to gather in, including a large fitted kitchen where you will find a wealth of amenities to prepare heart-warming meals during your stay, as well as a casual breakfast bar for quick snacks, and a separate utility room with a fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Host special occasions in the formal dining area, boasting a lavish chandelier resting above the wooden table, a perfect spot to catch up with loved ones as the wine flows after an exciting day.

You can look forward to cosying up in the snug sitting room, kicking back on the spacious corner sofa as you get the popcorn ready for a family film night, and if you fancy a night away from the TV, there's also a quaint table space for a challenging board game.

Continuing to impress are two ground-floor bedrooms and a bathroom, both with beautiful décor and ample storage, ideal for those with limited mobility.

Savour an evening glass of wine in your private garden space, admiring far-reaching views of the snowy Nevis range, a perfect backdrop for a relaxing night, or curl up with a book on a summer's day.

Once the sun has set, venture up to the first floor where the rest of the bedrooms await, comprising an inviting king-size with a private en-suite bathroom, benefiting from a gorgeous walk-in shower and a luxurious freestanding bath, as well as a stunning double which hosts snug sloped ceilings and open Velux windows for stargazing.

This floor is complete with a sleek shower room, providing a refreshing space to prepare for an adventurous day ahead.

A short stroll will bring you to the village centre of Spean Bridge, home to a choice of shops, pubs and restaurant for stocking up on the necessities and enjoying a dining experience away from the kitchen.

Those feeling energetic will relish in the closeness to the Great Glen Way and West Highland Way, two exceptional long-distance walking routes boasting amazing scenery and challenging rambles, travelling alongside the serene Loch Lochy, there's also a plethora of thrills nearby including watersports at the Loch, and Active Highs outdoor adventure.

For a truly unique experience, discover the snowy peaks of the Nevis Range where you'll find Britain's only mountain gondola, enjoying gondola rides in the summer months or opportunities for skiing in the winter, feeling stunned by the panoramic views of pure Scottish beauty.

Experience a unique evening of food and drink at the Eagle Barge Inn restaurant, an antique Dutch barge sat on the Caledonian Canal, here you can relax on the roof deck as you take in the tranquil surroundings.

Spend a day roaming around the outdoor capital of the UK at Fort William, a bustling town with an affluence of shopping, food and attractions, including access to Ben Nevis and Glen Nevis, the Ben Nevis Distillery, West Highland Museum, and Lochaber Geopark, whilst the Isle of Skye and Loch Ness lie further afield.

Rowanbank makes a wonderful getaway for an adventure with the whole family with a chance to explore the Scottish Highlands.
