Spectacular views

Commanding spectacular views stretching to Nevis Range, Firdale is a spacious, detached bungalow, situated on a working croft, just yards from the River Lochy. Steeped in history, and surrounded by mountains, lochs and tranquil glens, the area is renowned for its wide range of outdoor activities and guests can enjoy hill walking, climbing, skiing, fishing, golf, pony trekking and a large variety of water sports. Visit unspoilt beaches, castles, museums, and gardens, or have a wee dram at the Ben Nevis Distillery. The breathtaking scenery around Lochaber has been used as the backdrop for many well known films including ‘Brave Heart’ and ‘Rob Roy’, whilst the West Highland Steam Train (seasonal) takes you across the Glenfinnan Viaduct as depicted in one of the ‘Harry Potter’ movies. A short drive along the Road to the Isles will allow you to catch a ferry from Mallaig to the magical Isle of Skye, or head west to the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, Mull and Iona. Wildlife is in abundance and offers nature lovers the chance to spot golden eagles, wild deer, otters, porpoises, mink whales and dolphins. Glencoe, Loch Ness and Oban are also easily reached making this a fantastic holiday retreat for all ages. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

Customer Reviews of Firdale, nr Fort William - Sleeps 7

1st comment: Very nice cottage with excellent views. Plenty space inside and out and is quite well furnished with practically everything you would need. A tumble dryer would be an asset to the cottage but their are adequate radiators to dry clothes on. The owners are very nice and helpful and I would be more than happy to holiday here again. March 2012.

2nd comment: Spacious accommodation with first class views of Ben Nevis cloud level permitting. Shower in need of maintenance, just works. Oct 2011.

3rd comment: Clean, warm and well furnished. Oct 2010.

4th comment: There was plenty of space in all the rooms although it still remained a comfortable and cosy cottage. Easy access to all other routes for days out. Wonderful view from living room window of Ben Nevis. Sept 2010.

5th comment: Most of the rooms were of a good size with plenty of parking. July 2010.

6th comment: The bedrooms were all a good size, with lovely bedding. There was plenty of storage. The kitchen was well equipped, and the garden was a good size, and once the drive gates were shut, provided a safe and secure place for my 18mo son to run around. He loved the ponies, chickens, and rabbits that visited every day. The only thing I would suggest is to bring your own bath sheets - bath towels were provided, but I wished had brought some bath sheets! Shower was fine though not very powerful, was perfectly adequate. The views from the cottage, particularly at the front, were beautiful, and it was delightful to find we were just a short 5min walk from the Soldier’s Bridge from which we could watch the Jacobite Steam Train pass, and Old Inverlochy Castle, overlooking the River Lochy. July 2009.

7th comment: Large, roomy and well stocked. Also very well positioned to tour or for shops. June 2009.

8th comment: Excellent property, though shower needs updating. More information about places to visit would have been helpful. June 2009.

9th comment: Just a wonderful bungalow, with views of Ben Nevis from the lounge window, and other mountains from the back. The people are friendly and you feel as though you live there and aren’t just a visitor. May 2008.
