Situated on the isthmus in-between Loch Lochy and Loch Arkaig with the tumbling river Arkaig a few hundred years away, Osprey is surrounded by lochs, mountains and superb wildlife. Friendly pheasants roam the grounds and deer are seen within close proximity. With wonderful walks and cycle tracks right on the doorstep, Achnacarry Estate is an ideal base for an active outdoor holiday or peaceful retreat. There is an attractive lawned area of garden to the front and a pretty courtyard to the rear of the building. The steading retains its original whinstone facade with traditional large sash windows and the original bell tower with weathervane atop. There is ample car parking for up to two cars and covered cycle rack area is provided for visitors’ use. A shared drying room is also available in a separate room of the courtyard complex for outdoor clothing, boots etc. There are also picnic tables and BBQ’s. The local landscape is full of natural beauty and has been a popular location for filming both for the cinema and TV. Scenes from the film ’Rob Roy’ were filmed at the beautiful Cia-aig-falls nearby. Fort William, the outdoor capital of the UK, is just 15 minutes drive away. An outdoor enthusiasts paradise, this area offers a wide range of activities for all, from exhilarating walks to the top of Ben Nevis, skiing, snowboarding or mountain biking at nearby Aonach Mor/Nevis Range, to walking the Great Glen or West Highland Way. The less energetic can take a gondola ride to the top of the mountain and enjoy a meal in the Pinemarten restaurant. Achnacarry is also well situated as a base for touring the wonderful West Highlands and Islands. Achnacarry Outdoor Pursuits also operate from the Estate and offer a wide variety of activities for individuals and families, from fishing, to Argocat wildlife tours as well as stalking (in season). Or you can simply relax - perhaps take in some highland clan culture at the Clan Cameron Museum, try out the water of life at Ben Nevis Distillery, or just enjoy the silence and the beauty of the place itself.
