In a quiet location, yet within walking distance of the local amenities, this semi-detached cottage makes the perfect base for those looking to explore the area by day and return to a cosy home at night. The garden of Barnes House leads directly onto the hillside and there are plenty of leisurely walks, forest paths and cycle tracks, literally on your doorstep. The area is renowned for its outdoor pursuits, spectacular scenery and an abundance of wildlife. Both Glencoe Mountain Resort and the Nevis Mountain Range are only a short drive.
Fort William, known as the ’Outdoor Capital of the UK’ is the nearest town and from here you can catch the West Highland Steam Train (as depicted in the Harry Potter movie) to Mallaig, crossing the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct. Nearby activities include mountain biking, climbing, skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, walking, golf and fishing. There are many unspoilt beaches, ruined castles, historic monuments, museums, and whisky distilleries to visit. Boat trips to the inner isles including Lismore, Mull and Iona are easily accessible, or cross on the Corran Ferry for a day exploring the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. Head south to the bustling harbour town of Oban, or north for Loch Ness and the beautiful island of Skye. Beach 8½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.
