Salmon Catch Cottage is a superb cottage situated right on the banks of the famous River Lochy. Forming a contemporary wing of the owner’s lovely detached west Highland house, with wrap around gardens and situated in a beautiful glen with gardens leading down to the renowned salmon river and just a few minutes’ drive to the Ben Nevis mountain range, it offers peace and tranquillity in a stunning setting. 2-acres of grounds (which are shared with the owners and guests of two other self catering properties). This cottage is superbly presented throughout and with four double bedrooms it is ideal for combined family holidays and larger groups, particularly salmon fishers, given its close proximity to the River Lochy. The main living area is open plan. The lounge has large picture windows overlooking the gardens, with the river below. The kitchen/dining area is fully equipped to a good standard. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor (one en-suite) and two bedrooms on the first floor, which enjoy the same stunning views across the river to the hills beyond. There are superb walks with fantastic views direct from the property. A small footpath leads directly down to the banks of the River Lochy.
Salmon Catch Cottage can be booked together with Nevis Rest (CC511207), Otterburn Lodge (CC511493) and Pine Marten Cabin (UK5290) to accommodate up to 17 guests.
