Achaneich Stable Cottage stands in the grounds of an historic Highland house which dates back to 1600. Set in 2 ½ acres of landscaped gardens with the Grey Corries and Aonach Mor providing a dramatic backdrop, this delightful cottage provides an exceptionally high standard of accommodation for 2 in a spectacular and peaceful location. The cottage is believed to have been built by General Wade during the Jacobite rebellion to house his troops, with horses accommodated below. The cottage has been sympathetically converted whilst retaining some charming original features, such as a superb, exposed stone in the main living area, vaulted ceiling and original arrow-slit windows. The open-plan lounge/dining room is separated from the kitchen area by a modern breakfast bar. The pretty double bedroom has fitted wardrobes and enjoys lovely views across the beautiful woodland gardens. Visitors are welcome to wander the garden grounds. Achaneich Stable cottage is ideally situated for exploring this renowned area of the Highlands, known as the ‘outdoor capital of the UK’.
Please note Achaneich Chalet (sleeps 4) also situated in the grounds, may also be available to let, subject to availability.

Lovely cottage with everything you need. Good places to eat nearby and good centre for visiting Fort William area.

Great location and the cottage was clean and tidy. Those are the plus marks. But there are some negatives. There was absolutely no chance of sitting 'comfortably' outside. I appreciate that you must have the right weather but at times we might have wished to sit 'comfortably' in the grounds but all we were offered was a bench down some steps on a small terrace. As senior citizens with caution in mind, those steps and other aspects of the extended grounds were not old person friendly. The equipment was ok but in the culinary area we had to be inventive when it came to cooking pots. A wok or two would not come amiss. Location was great for exploring this beautiful part of the world but necessarily the truly local village was not well equipped. Fortwilliam is good however but it is 10 miles away on a busy road.

Lovely area just unfortunate that it's very difficult to walk or cycle to the local shops and restaurants. Excellent for access to lots of things in the Highlands but you always need to drive
