About the local area

The ruins of the former Cameron stronghold ’Torcastle’ lie within five minutes walk along the riverside near to a small sand and shingle beach. All the bedrooms are very spacious and mainly en-suite and the house has been equipped to an extremely high standard making this stunning property  ideal for a two-family or extended family or group holiday in a superb location.  The Fort William area 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.  Climbing and hill-walking in this area are second to none and the Nevis range offers an amazing variety of other sporting activities all year round, including para-gliding, skiing, snowboarding 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 or enjoy a cycle ride along the scenic Great Glen Cycle route that runs along the side of the Caledonian canal (bikes available to hire locally). A gate from the property leads directly down to the river Lochy.  Just over a mile away is the incredible flight of lock gates on the Caledonian Canal, known as Neptune’s Staircase.   Enjoy a meal and a dram at the nearby Moorings hotel, as you watch boats negotiate the locks.  In the summer months the West Highland steam train, or ‘Hogwart’s Express’ of Harry Potter fame, runs along a wonderfully scenic route through to Mallaig.  .  From here you can explore some of the smaller isles of Muck, Rhum and Eigg or take the boat across the sea to Skye, returning via the Skye bridge to complete a spectacular circular tour.   Fort William, just 5 miles away, offers an excellent selection of restaurants, pubs and local shops as well as a superb swimming pool and leisure centre.  The beautiful Ardnamurchan Peninsular is also well worth a visit.  It is the most westerly point on the British Isles and boasts stunning beaches, unspoilt coastline and a wealth of wildlife. 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. The enigmatic and mysterious mountains of Glencoe, the beautiful shores of Loch Ness and the pretty, unspoilt coastline of the western Highlands all contribute to the area’s allure.
