The Scottish Highlands region
A diversified landscape with rocky beaches, breathtaking white sands and spectacular mountainous regions. There is an abundance of wildlife on both land and water to attract your interest.
Lochaber has both European and Global Geopark status and many geological features of importance can be seen - ranging from a deeply eroded volcano on Rum in the west, to the amazing Parallel Roads of Glen Roy in the east.
There is much deep historical interest throughout the region from Bonnie Prince Charlie raising his standard at Glenfinnan, the Appin Murder to the Glencoe Massacre. Many castles can also be visited.
Fort William enjoys a relatively mind, temperate climate, one heavily influenced by the Gulf Stream and the Atlantic Ocean - not forgetting about the very local micro-climates created by the high mountainous terrain that provides Lochaber with this beautiful scenery.
Ardnamurchan Lighthouse is the most westerly point on the British Mainland and on a clear day you will benefit from having 360 degree panoramic view of the Scottish Highlands and Islands.
The Ardnamurchan area
Fort William is the Outdoor Capital of the UK boasting diverse activities locally and nearby such as extreme mountain biking, ski-ing, snowboarding, hill walking, ice climbing, kayaking, golfing, quad biking, canyoning, cycling, fishing, stalking, clay pigeon shooting, horse riding, loch cruises, whale watching, steam train trips. There are local traditional Scottish Highland Games held during summer months which are a must to visit.

We rented the cottage for two weeks during which various members of our family joined us for a few days at different times.....with three well-appointed bedrooms, two of which had en-suite facilities... more
23 Apr 2012
Fantastic setting with a warm and friendly welcome from the owners.They had thought of everything right down to fresh flowers, fruit,and a lovely freshly made cake.The house was warm and has a real friendly feel about it.In our party there were 4 adults 3 teenagers and 2 eight year old girls oh and not forgetting the family dog Jazz.There was plenty of space for us all and loads for the kids and adults to do.
Within easy reach was Fort William (Morrisons supermarket) fantastic beaches,and breath taking views around every bend.Going back August 2012 and cannot wait.
