  • "Very peaceful place."

    Far from maddening crowd. Would book again.

  • "We loved the remoteness while feeling safe in our cabin."

    The location suited us perfectly, quite central allowing us to facilitate all our bucket list visits to the Scottish Highlands. Also impressed by the ease and suitability of accommodation for our two spaniel dogs. Really appreciated the reliable WiFi connection. Just in terms of 'even better if' it would have been beneficial to have fire lighters available for our arrival. It probably wasn't a cold evening but it felt that way after a 14 hour drive. Also, the vacuum cleaner isn't brilliant and cleanup would have been much more effective with a dry mop. Loved it and would highly recommend. Steve & Julie

  • "A perfectly idyllic location, absolutely glorious when the shines."

    We were provided with a generous basket of goodies which included some delicious strawberry wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful remote location with many more opportunities to explore than we were able to in a single week.

The property

Spean Bridge 11.3 miles.

Fersit Log Cottage is a detached log cabin situated 3 miles by a single track from the main A86, based in the small hamlet of Roughburn in the Highlands of Scotland.

Set over the ground floor, this inviting chalet-style property would be ideal for a family or group of friends who want to spread out and relax in the Scottish countryside.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living area, acting as the social hub of the property, here you can kick back on the sofa in front of the woodburning stove, reflecting on the day’s adventures and planning the next few days to come.

The kitchen offers a well-equipped setup for the group chef, appointed with an electric oven and ceramic hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a dishwasher, so you won’t have to lift a finger when washing up, whilst the dining table offers a charming spot to enjoy mealtimes.

Throw open the patio doors and step out onto the full-length decking, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee whilst the snowy mountain vistas tempt your exploration.

Move into the bedrooms to catch your rest, offering a choice of king-size and twin bedded, each furnished with fitted storage and bedside tables, served by a bathroom with an alluring Jacuzzi bath - just want you’ll need after a long day of fell walking.

The nearby village of Spean Bridge is just a short journey away, providing your closest amenities, including a café, traditional pub and a convenience store for picking up any essentials, however there is a closer pub close by at the Roy Bridge Reservoir at Station Lodge, if you’re feeling an adventurous walk over.

The Nevis Range Mountain Experience is around half an hour away and is a fantastic day out for outdoor lovers, with mountain biking, mountain gondola, snow sports and picturesque walking routes, there’s something for everyone.
