Customer Reviews of Maybank, nr Fort William - Sleeps 8
1st comment: A great bungalow with exceptional views of Ben Nevis and the Calendonian Canal. So even if it’s raining, you can sit in the sun lounge watching the boats go by and watch the ever changing weather. The bungalow is well equipped with every item we needed, including games and jigsaws. We’ll be going back. June 2011.
