Description

Tigh Ban is a stylish detached holiday property set in a peaceful location in the historic village of Glencoe. Nestling under the Pap of Glencoe with views towards Loch Leven and the surrounding mountains it offers the perfect base for exploring Lochaber, Argyll and the Inner Isles. The area is renowned for its outdoor pursuits, breathtaking scenery, abundant wildlife and turbulent historic past. Nearby Glencoe Mountain Resort and Fort William the ’Outdoor Capital of the UK’ both offer excellent mountain biking, climbing, skiing, snowboarding and walking. Kayaking, sailing, golf and fishing are also popular pursuits. The Glencoe to Oban cycle path has lots of level cycling for families with young children and bikes can be hired locally. Catch the West Highland Steam Train (as depicted in the Harry Potter movie) to Mallaig, crossing the famous Glenfinnan viaduct, or visit some of the unspoilt white sandy beaches at Arisaig and Morar. Steeped in history, the area has many ruined castles, monuments and museums to visit, or Oban and Ben Nevis distilleries allow you to partake in a wee dram! Boat trips to Mull, Iona and Lismore are easily accessible, whilst Ardnamurchan Peninsula, the most westerly point in Britain, is well worth the scenic drive. Inverness, the Highland capital, Loch Ness and the beautiful Isle of Skye are also within easy reach. Beach 20 miles. Shop 300 yards, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

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. The lovely Lochleven Seafood Café is another winning eatery and perfect for a scenic meal.

Around Fort William there are outdoor activities in plenty, including walking and climbing, cycling and mountain biking, riding and trekking, a brilliant golf course, 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.
