Hawthorn Lodge is one of four solid wood lodges set in natural woodland right on the banks of the Caledonian Canal. With uninterrupted views of Ben Nevis acting as a dramatic backdrop it has one of the best views in this area of the Highlands. The lodge has been well maintained and provides attractive and welcoming accommodation for up to six people. The main living area is open plan. The living area has deep leather sofas and the main door opens onto a large veranda with outdoor dining furniture; an ideal location to sit and watch the boats sail past on the famous Caledonian Canal below whilst drinking in the magnificent view of the north face of Ben Nevis and the Aonach Mor ski slopes. There is a modern kitchen with dining table for six. The three good sized bedrooms are well presented, with colour coordinated soft furnishings. A large modern family bathroom with bath and shower over completes the picture. Each lodge has been carefully sited to give maximum privacy and the canal at the end of the garden grounds is fenced off, whilst giving plenty of space for walks for dogs as well as children. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
Hawthorn Lodge can be booked together with Oak Lodge (28879), Beech House (CC511027) and Birch Lodge (28880) to accommodate up to 24 guests.

About the local area

There is a lovely walk along the side of the canal to the nearby Moorings Hotel which has a good restaurant and bar open to non residents. This is set on the side of Neptune’s Staircase, the longest set of staircase locks in Britain, built by Thomas Telford. This dramatic set of loch gates lead boats to and from the Caladonian canal into Loch Linnhe. The surrounding area is a haven for wildlife. Pine marten, red and roe deer, otter, owls, buzzards, a wide variety of butterflies, wild flowers including orchids and a myriad of small birds are all seen close by. The Lochaber region is rightly known as the ’outdoor capital of the UK’ and the wealth of activities, outdoor pursuits and places of interest available are world renowned. The Ben Nevis range offers an exceptional variety of sporting activities all year round, including climbing, hill walking, para gliding, skiing, snow boarding and a world class mountain bike course. The less energetic can take a spectacular ride on the gondola that runs up the side of Aanoch Mor and enjoy a meal at the famous mountain restaurant at the top. In the summer months the West HIghland steam train, of Harry Potter fame, runs along a wonderfully scenic route through to Mallaig, from where ferries depart for the Isle of Skye and the small isles. The beautiful Ardnamurchan Peninsular is also well worth a visit. Ardnamurchan point and lighthouse mark the most westerly point on the British Isles. Take the Corran car ferry just south of Fort William across Loch Linnhe ( a 5 minute ride) and return via the ’road to the isles’ for a truly memorable day out. Fishing, golf numerous water sports and boat trips are all available locally
