Customer Reviews of Upper Stronaba Cottage, nr Spean Bridge - Sleeps 5
"The best view in Britain?"
Looking out the window every morning and seeing the top of Ben Nevis was very encouraging (and picturesque) as we were using the cottage as a base for a week of Munro bagging. Although the weather was pretty good all week, the cottage was ideally set up for drying clothes and boots. There was a slight idiosyncrasy with the shower, due to low water pressure, but once that was mastered there were no problems at all. The only downside was that the cottage was not really ideally situated so that you could walk to a pub/hotel for an evening meal, but that was a minor issue for us. We would have preferred a loft hatch in place.
"Utopia in Upper Stronaba !"
Superb panoramic views from the cottage, which was spotless, comfortable ,well equipped and perfectly located for a week of hillwalking in and around Lochaber. We were fortunate to enjoy a week of wonderful weather, The nearby Russell's restaurant in Spean Bridge was very good for a celebratory dinner on Friday night after our week on the hills.
"Comfortable cottage with spectacular views"
We rented this cottage last year and had a superb week. We were warmly welcomed by Mrs Cameron. The cottage was well equiped with everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable. A lovely sunny outlook with magnificant views over to Ben Nevis.
