Description

A larger holiday property for a family or group of friends to enjoy the myriad activities, or simply relax and enjoy the views.


In a superb location with wonderful views towards Loch Linnhe, the Caledonian Canal, Fort William and the surrounding mountains, this spacious house, one of a pair, adjoins the owners’ seldom used holiday apartment and offers an ideal base for discovering the west coast of Scotland. The holiday property is decorated with a Christmas theme during the festive season.
The area is renowned for its outdoor pursuits, breathtaking scenery and abundant wildlife. Known as the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’, activities include mountain biking, climbing, skiing, kayaking, walking, golf and fishing. Take a trip on the gondola up Aonach Mor or try the World Championship mountain bike course. For outdoor enthusiasts who like a challenge, why not take on Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Britain. On a clear day, the view is spectacular and you can see for miles. For steam train enthusiasts, catch the West Highland Steam Train to Mallaig, crossing the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct which featured in the Harry Potter films, (or watch it from the garden as it puffs past the house daily during the summer months). Alternatively, visit some of the unspoilt beaches, historic castles, museums, distilleries and magnificent gardens.
Boat trips to the inner isles are easily accessible, including Mull with its main, colourful, harbourside town, Tobermoray, also known as Balamory in the children’s TV series, Staffa and the cathedral like Fingal’s Cave, and Iona with its pristine white sands and famous abbey. Torfern is also ideally placed for touring with the bustling harbour town of Oban, Aviemore for winter sports, Inverness, Skye or monster spotting at Loch Ness all easily reached. Shop and pub 200 yards.

    Torfern was excellent! The house has great facilities for all the family, the views are amazing, so peaceful and quiet. There are many places to walk and explore near by, super for doggies. The wee pub round the corner was very friendly and it was handy having the Co-op there too. We all had a fantastic time over the New Year and will definitely be back for another visit. Many Thanks Torfern from The Sutherland Family X

    The photos of the house dont do it justice.its bigger and very well appointed.You wont be disapointed when you stay here.It snowed whilst we were here but at no time were we cold.The underfloor heating is great.You could also park 4 cars in the driveway if you needed to.All the rooms are really spacious and the ensuite rooms are very comfortable.We would not hesitate to re visit in the future.We didnt take our dogs this time but if we had the downstairs areas are all stone flooring which is easy to keep clean.The views across the lochs towards Ben nevis is superb.Another plus point to is the Coop 100 yds away for those forgotten items or sticky buns!!!!.This property is very peaceful.

    Good property but not really dog friendly perhaps you could mention dogs are not to be exercised in the garden lawn areas yes there are great walks nearby but not at 4 in the morning also not allowed upstairs where the sitting room is as no tv area downstairs for all the family I spent my week on the downstairs level which Became a little tedious perhaps dogs accepted would be a more appropriate wording than welcomed

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are at a loss to know what you mean by "Dogs are not to be exercised in the lawn areas." as the garden is exactly where we would expect your dog to be exercised. What made you think that you could not? Perhaps please keep dogs out of bedrooms would be better wording than downstairs, and it is something we will look into.

    We are a group of traveling friends and family who come from all over the USA and one lovely lady from Canada. We enjoyed our stay at Torfern immensely. The only complaint I heard was that we did not stay long enough! The home was immaculate and amenities modern and in good repair. We loved the layout of the home. We were able to spend lots of quality time together, and at the same time, enjoy our privacy. Thanks so much for providing such a comfortable and pleasant vacation experience for all of us!

    Spectacular accommodations in a very convenient location. The home and gardens were incredible, newly renovated - and spared no expense. The rooms were large and the space comfortably hosted our family of 6 for a week. Highly recommended!

    My family and I have been doing Cottage holidays for a few years now. Each year we try and find somewhere exceptional and Torfern certainly meets that criteria. My family really enjoyed staying at this cottage. Beautiful view towards Fort William and Ben Nevis. Taking the train to Mallaig is a must and even the train station is just a very small walk away. Doing tubing (rubber rings down a dry ski slope at Glencoe Mountain center ) was great fun for all the family from young to old. Great communication from the owners and house keeper before we arrived. Would definitely go back.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to leave your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Torfern and very much hope we have the chance to welcome you back again. Having read your report of the tubing, our son now wants to try it. Thank you too for the 10 score - very much appreciated.

    This house is fantastic. A great size with amazing views. We watched all 4 seasons in one day through the patio doors, the steam train pass twice daily and the top of Ben Nevis, all from the sofa! A short walk to the sea lock and to the local shop for essentials. A brilliant base for exploring the Highlands. The arrangements were excellent and the owners really friendly.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Your review has left us feeling quite humbled; thank you so much for your positive comments and the 10 score. Unfortunately, the Scottish weather is one thing over which we have no control - but we are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday in Torfern. Thank you again.

    Fantastic holiday home with everything you could possibly need. Views from the patio were stunning. Well stocked supermarket one minute walk away. Didn’t try the local pubs as they did look a bit run down but plenty of nice pubs and restaurants within a short drive.

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are both so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Torfern and thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We hope you might come back again to this part of Lochaber.

    A superb spacious house with large garden in great location with lovely views and walks alongside the Caledonian canal. All amenities close to hand with a small Co-op just to the rear and larger stores a short distance away inFort William. The house is very well presented, very clean and has everything a large family needs, including loads of space, inside and out. Absolutely superb. The only reason it didn’t score a 10 in every section is that some of the kitchen equipment is damaged or missing. The wok has been damaged and cannot be safely used. The oven tins are similarly inferior and need replacing. Some of the glasses are missing and/or mis-matched. The owners telephone in the attached cottage also rang on numerous occasions and went unanswered. If these matters are addressed in this quality property I’m sure it would score 10 for everything. This is the place if you want space, views, quality accommodation, local amenities and accessibility to Ben Nevis, Loch Ness, Highland Wildlife Park, canal walks etc. There’s too much to do in this area in a week’s stay. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone as one of the best places to go.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your most helpful comments and we are pleased that you had a good stay in Torfern. You will be pleased to know that all the baking trays have been replaced with new ones. Regarding our unanswered telephone - despite registering our number with the Telephone Preference Service, we continue to be plagued with calls from companies trying to get us to replace our boiler or install double glazing. We have now unplugged the phone.

    We have had an epic holiday, the house was perfect and the location easy to get to places we wanted to see. Our family from New Zealand appreciated everything. We even saw a whale in the loch one evening, as the local children were jumping into the loch, but quickly aborted their play when the whale appeared. the garden of the house was perfect to play in

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you so much for your 10/10 score; really appreciated. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Torfern and hope that the family will take back happy memories to NZ. You were certainly lucky with the weather.

    We had stayed twice before (says it all really) and so knew what to expect. The home is lovely with all mod cons and especially great views of the loch and Ben Nevis. Plenty of great walks nearby. Good co-op. Big M&S foodhall and large supermarkets nearby. We had 8 + dogs and it did not feel crowded. Large garden helped.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you, we hope Torfern is starting to feel like home from home.
