Absolutely stunning views, good access to Spean Bridge and Fort William. Lovely walks from the house and major mountains near by for walking and climbing. The loch is close enough for daily swims. Friendly hosts, generous welcome pack. Really enjoyed the cat as well!

Off the beaten track, but if that's what you are looking for, just perfect. Beautiful spacious property with glorious views, well equipped, help at hand if needed.

Lochy Bay is one of those places where you get up and look out the window every morning and say, Wow. Not only are the views magnificent but the owners are a pleasure to deal with and tried to accommodate our every request. We even had the pleasure of temporarily adopting one of their Maine Coon cats.
