Our restoration team have been busy transforming yet another heritage property on Scotland's canal network. Ardlussa is a former lock keeper's cottage set on the banks of the Caledonian Canal at Garirlochy. The luxurious bath in the bedroom makes this cottage ideal for a romantic break or a honeymoon.

The fantastic location adds to its charm. Gairlochy is on the southern shores of Loch Lochy amongst the grand Lochaber countryside, the small hamlet of Gairlochy boasts a tranquil location and picturesque scenery.

The village of Garilochy is situated at the south end of the Great Glen Way between the Commando Memorial and the Caledonian Canal, is surrounded by several other small crofting settlements. The Great Glen Way and the Great Glen Mountain Bike Trail can both be joined at the canal which is approximately 10 minutes walk from the village. Fort William and Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain, are also easily accessible in under 20 minutes drive.

Lying in the shadow of Ben Nevis, Fort William is the 'Outdoor Capital of the UK' and the main town in Lochaber

"Ideal cottage for short break"

Perfectly sited for exploring the Caledonian canal and watching boats go through the locks; nicely restored canal cottage with well chosen furniture and equipment. Excellent walks can be planned around good bus service to road end (two mile walk on minor road) and the Caledonian Way - we didn't use the car at all for 3 day short break. No local shops though till Spean Bridge -but there's a great fridge if you arrive with all your provisions! Not isolated - there are several bungalows in Gairlochy and the lock staff are very friendly and informative.
Mobile reception was OK and there's a real red phone box beside the cottage!

"Lovely cottage and a beautiful scenic and peaceful location"

Would highly recommend staying at ArdLussa Cottage, it is beautifully decorated inside with a lovely modern feel. It also had the bonus of a wood burner for cosy evenings in.
The best part is the amazing canal side location with a five minute walk to the end of a loch with some spectacular views, it's remote enough to feel totally away from everything and but only a 15minute drive to Fort William for amenities.
Would definitely stay here again if coming back to Scotland.
Thank you to the owner's for a your cottage it really made our holiday extra special.
