Lovers of Harry Potter and steam enthusiasts will love this bright, airy detached bungalow, as they watch Hogwarts Express passing by.

Lovely open views

Set back from the ’Road to the Isles’ this detached bungalow enjoys open views across the historic village of Glenfinnan. Situated at the head of Loch Shiel the village is steeped in history as it was here that Bonnie Prince Charlie rallied his Jacobite troops in 1745. Visit the NTS Monument, Visitor Centre and the beautiful St Mary and St Finnan Church. Take a trip to Fort William, the ’Outdoor Capital of the UK’ or Mallaig where you can catch a ferry to the magical Isle of Skye. The Jacobite steam train which featured as Hogwarts Express in some of the Harry Potter films can be seen passing from the property. Blythswood makes the perfect base for touring this beautiful part of the West Highlands. Lots to see and do for all the family. Shop 15 miles, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location, clean and comfortable. Nearest shop is 13 miles away and more in Fort William. We loved watching the trains go past.

    A roomy, inviting and well-equipped house in excellent condition with off-street parking, only a couple of doors away from one of the village’s two excellent pub/restaurants & with the Jacobite steam train puffing past the garden fence four times a day. Would definitely stay here again.

    Excellent cottage, probably the best we have stayed in at this price range; very comfortable and clean and with everything provided. Fantastic views with the cottage being located above the road, and we enjoyed watching the Jacobite train from the garden. Shortly after arrival we met the owner, who was very friendly and helpful.

    We had a fantastic time here especially at 11.20am each morning as we waved the Jacobite train through the back of the cottage...a steam train fans dream. It was so exciting. The whole family from 77 to 3 yrs old joined in. The scenery is beautiful and you can walk down a track to the Glenfinnan Hotel on Loch Shiel shore which served a lovely lunch for us on our first day. We went on the Glennfinan viewpoint to watch the train over the viaduct, visited Oban (definitely worth it) Mallaig, which was small but lovely, Spean Bridge for the Commandoe Memorial and finally rode the Jacobite one day. Each day ended with a warm cosy return to this gorgeous cottage. We loved the wood burner in the sitting room although the central heating was nice and toasty. Nice big rooms, clean bedding, lovely big kitchen with farmhouse table...would highly recommend as a great base for the Western Highlands...particularly enjoyed dusk at the shore of Loch Shiel in the shadow of The Jacobite monument with the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct behind us while my grandson plodged in the water surrounded by magnificent mountains...perfect place, cottage and weather...
