    We really enjoyed our break at Watercolour, stunning scenery right from the living room, abundance of space for our little boy to play, far enough away from civilisation to be peaceful and undisturbed yet close enough when you need a few provisions or an evening out. We appreciated the welcome from the owner and the discount for the Corran ferry (it's very expensive). Local amenities are a long drive either north around Loch Linnhe to Fort William or south and cross on the ferry to Ballachulish/Fort William. It's a shame there isn't even a village store close by, but if you plan your provisions Watercolour has a mini freezer and large fridge to store things. The washing machine and dishwasher were added bonuses. We found Watercolour to be mostly clean and tidy, just a bit dusty in places, but apparently the previous guests had left with the keys so perhaps the owner didn't get enough time to get in and prepare for our arrival? Overall it was acceptably clean though, certainly didn't warrant a complaint and we just ran the hoover and a cloth around and it was done in 20 minutes. If you enjoy books, local music and a good DVD, the collection in Watercolour will keep you occupied for many many cosy nights in. There was even an upright piano which our little boy adored straight away! We really wished we'd booked another week, one just wasn't enough to fully appreciate the area and explore further afield. We had a hawk walk with Finn's Falconry at Inverawe and stocked up on smoked salmon from the smoke house. We managed to visit Oban's McCaig's Tower, took the Jacobite across the Glenfinnan Viaduct to Mallaig where we enjoyed Cullen Skink and Langoustines in The Clachain Inn, strolled across the white sands of Sanna and flew our kites and explored rock pools or paddled in the crystal clear waves. We cycled up Neptune's Staircase in Fort William and onwards along the Great Glen Way to the lighthouse at Gairlochy, highly recommended. We also cycled up the landrover track next to the River Scaddle which runs about a hundred yards from Watercolour, another great bike ride. We highly recommend Watercolour for large families or groups of 4 or more, and the surrounding area is outstanding if you like the great outdoors.

    Fab location, great views and great if you have dogs (we took three), with enclosed field. Very relaxed....no list of do's and dont's!! Lovely river walk from the door, lots of deer. Comfy lounge, well equipped kitchen. WiFi most of the time...!

    Superb cottage in a beautiful location and a feeling of total remoteness. Walk out onto the very quiet hills, valleys and loch with no need for a car. Cottage and grounds superb and very safe which was great for the dog to roam and explore. The local shop has now shut so its a trip to Fort William for the “big shop” which is fine, but adds to the remoteness.

    A beautiful location and a very well equipped cottage. We would definitely return for the peace, relaxation and stunning scenery. If WiFi is needed then this isn’t the place for you, but then why go somewhere like this if you aren’t going to take in all that it has to offer?

    Our 3rd stay at watercolour and it will not be our last. An absolutely stunning location. A fantastic base for exploring the local area and beyond. The owners are supetb and on hand should you need any information. The house is home from home and caters for all weathers with a vast assortment of Dvd's and music shoyld you wish to stay home and relax. Ben Nevis in all his glory hangs like a picture from the living room. Our 3yr old grandson was with us this year and he loved every moment. Watercolour is amazing...oncevyou get there....you will not want to leave.
