Scottish Cottages

The Scottish Regional Specialist - Fantastic properties in the most favourable locations. No one knows Scotland better!


Description

A large, bright, spacious property situated in one of the most idyllic and unique locations in the Scottish Highlands.

Beech House is situated in one of the most idyllic and unique locations in the Scottish Highlands, with wide and awe-inspiring views across the Great Glen to the North face of Ben Nevis, which dominates the landscape and can be admired whilst luxuriating in the hot tub!  Built as the new croft house for Seangan in 1986 and subsequently extended, this exceptionally large, bright and spacious house is situated on a working croft on the banks of the Caledonian Canal.  The farm has been in the current family for well over a hundred years and the owners welcome visitors to experience the peace and tranquillity of the Highland croft lifestyle in one of the most renowned and unspoilt area of the British Isles.
Situated just 5 miles from Fort William, the opportunities for sport and outdoor recreation are second to none.  Climbing, hill-walking, canoeing, sailing, golf, fishing, skiing and cycling are all available within close proximity and the Great Glen Way stretching from Fort William to Inverness is close by. Whether you would like to tackle one of the many Munros in the area (mountains about 3,000 feet), or prefer to wander through the foothills of Glen Nevis, (where the film Braveheart was made),with its pretty riverside walks, or even take the gondola ride up the ski slopes to savour the spectacular views from the top, there is something for all abilities.  The world mountain biking championships are held here annually, and the trails offer a variety of routes for all levels.  Take a trip to Mallaig on the ’road to the isles’ just 2 miles from the property, or travel via the famous steam train of Harry Potter fame, which runs along this route.  From there it is just a short ferry ride away to the Isle of Skye, and the smaller isles of Muck, Eigg and Rhum.  A day out on the Arnamurchan Peninsular, via the Corran car ferry (5 minute boat ride) is a must.  With its beautiful coastline, its pretty hamlets and villages untouched by time, and its lighthouse situated on the  most westerley point in Britain, this will prove to be a unique and memorable experience.  The rugged beauty of nearby Glencoe, the seclusion of Loch Arkaig (location of the film Rob Roy), and the quiet tranquillity of the Caledonian Canal all contribute to the incomparable qualities of this area and combine to make this lovely house and ideal base for exploring the heart of the Western Highlands.  Beech House is particularly suited to a two family or extended family holiday as it can accommodate larger groups. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    A clean comfortable cottage with en-suite in all 5 bedrooms. Very spacious with plenty of equipment. Wifi and phone not strong in the area but owner very helpful. We had a major emergency and the owner bent over backwards to help.

    We stayed at Beech Cottage for a week in March 2017 with our 2 dogs. Very well equipped house with stunning views. Clean and tidy but not so pristine that you'd be unable to relax if you take the dogs. Nice location, feels remote but is only about 5 miles outside of Fort William itself. Garden isn't 100% secure though and there's livestock on neighbouring grassland so that's something to be mindful of if you're thinking of staying here. Very friendly and accommodating owners who live just opposite. Hot tub is great and again, has lovely views. Easy access to the nearby beautiful caledonian canal with decent, secure footpaths.
