Description

In an elevated position with wonderful views over the Caledonian Canal to the mountains beyond, this detached house makes an ideal holiday base for exploring the Highlands and the Western Isles. Fort William is the nearest town with an array of shops, bars and restaurants and the area is known as the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’. Outdoor activities include mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, climbing, fishing, horse-riding, golf and a variety of water sports. The magnificent scenery has been used as the backdrop for many well known films including Braveheart and Rob Roy, whilst the West Highland Steam Train (seasonal) passes the Glenfinnan Viaduct as depicted in one of the Harry Potter movies. Wildlife is in abundance and offers the chance to spot golden eagles, deer, otters, porpoises and dolphins. There are plenty of beautiful gardens and ruined castles to be visited and the area is famous for its rich historical legacy. For a more relaxed pace, watch the boats sail through the Caledonian Canal, take a trip up Aonach Mor in a gondola or wander around a network of forest trails, the Great Glen Way, canal paths and shoreline, simply enjoying the natural beauty of this stunning location. Glencoe, Oban, Loch Ness, Inverness and the Isle of Skye are easily accessible. Shop and pub 3½ miles.

About the local area

Fort William and the Lochaber area has to be the outdoor capital of the UK due to the its location at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest peak. The walking around this area is fabulous. From the southern mecca of Glen Coe to the wilder and less visited northern area of Knoydart there are many diverse landscapes to enjoy with equally amazing views over lochs and sea.

Fort William itself has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The High Street has a range of shops, and outdoor enthusiasts are especially well catered for by large shopping outlets. There are also a wide range of eating and drinking opportunities in Fort William, including the prize winning Crannog Seafood Restaurant. For many, the highlight will be a visit to the Grog and Gruel, on the High Street!!!

Around Fort William there are outdoor activities in plenty, including walking and climbing, cycling and mountain biking, riding and trekking, golf, angling and a range of water-sports. East of the town The Ben Nevis Range is a year round sporting destination. It also offers a spectacular gondola ride up the side of Aonoch Mor with its accessible pathways and exhilarating views over the west Highlands.

For a more relaxing adventure visit the Ardnamurchan peninsula. It is here you can relax in some peaceful ancient oak woodlands that date back to the last ice age, over 12,000 years ago! This area is a haven for rare wildlife such as the chequered skipper butterfly and the views out to the small isles of Rum, Eigg and Muck are stunning.

But be sure that where ever you go you will never tire of the magnificent, ever changing views of Ben Nevis that makes this area so popular.
