The steading is in Spean Bridge, 9 miles east of Fort William in the heart of the West Highlands. This stylish, contemporary barn conversion offers a warm holiday home from which to explore and enjoy this wild, romantic and beautiful land.

Accommodating up to 10 people, Tirindrish Steading has been fitted to the highest contemporary standards. Underfloor heating, double glazing and a warm woodburning stove keep the house toasty warm, the state of the art kitchen provides a good forum for stimulating cuisine using nature's local bounty and the lovely open rooms look out onto Lochaber's dramatic landscape.

Spean Bridge lies on the junction of the Fort William to Inverness road and the road past Loch Laggan to Dalwhinnie on the A9. In the famed Great Glen, under the shadow of Ben Nevis, this is for people who love the hills and wide open spaces. Play around the house, barbeque on the patio, cosy inside with a good book or simply play the piano in this harmonious context.

The Scottish Highlands region

The mountainous region of "Lochaber" around Fort William and Glencoe is truly wild and exciting. Few roads and miles and miles of high wilderness provide spectacular views with dramatic skies and towering mountains and cliffs plunging to the sea. The air is fresh and the lanscape is invigorating.

The "Outdoor Capital" is so suited to Fort William. Climb, mountain bike, walk, ski or even parachute , canoe, waterski or canyon to really experience the richness of these hills.

Proud highland clans such as Clan Cameron, Clan Donald in Glencoe and Glen Roy, Mackintosh and even Campbells all fiercely protected their way of life and local traditions and tartans. Mulroy the site of the last ever battle between highland clans is on our land just up the hill behind the house. Iain Lom the great highland bard lived just below the house. MacDonell of Tirindrish led the Keppoch MacDonalds in their ambush at High Bridge the very first shots of the Jacobite rebellion.
