The Scottish Highlands region
Rowan Lodge is situated on The Great Glen Way, the famous walk from Fort William to Inverness or visa versa.
The area is very popular with walkers, climbers, cyclists and photographers to name but a few.
The main water sports centre is located just three and half miles away, here you can participate in white water rafting, river rafting, safari, canyoning, gorge walking, kayaking, rock climbing and abseiling, mountain biking and more!
Purpose built Loch Side access is only available for our private guests with Free Fishing from the shores of Loch Lochy. Small boats and caonoes can also be launched from here. A Fishing Ghillie Service is available for our guests and Fishing Equipment can be hired.
Fishing Permits for surrounding rivers and lochs and for Salmon Fishing can also be arranged
The lodges site and surrounding area have an abundance of visiting birds and wild life, Golden Eagles, Osprey, Sea Eagles, Buzzards, Red Deer, Seka Deer to name but a few.
But even more exciting, we are very fortunate to have a family of resident Pine Martens, Britains second most rarest mammal, they visit the feeding station on each of the veranda's to find their favourite treat of Peanut Butter, Jam or even a raw egg. They are here through out the day but are much more active during the early to late evening.
The nearest shop that sells just about everything is 3 miles away, nearest fuel station 3 and half miles away.
The nearest pub in walking distant is The Eagle Inn on the Water, a floating Dutch Barge this is seasonal, open from February to end October.
The Invergarry Castle Hotel serving excellent traditional Scottish food with a traditional Scottish welcome is only 3 and half miles as is the Invergarry Hotel, also serving excellent Highland Fayre.
Further north 10 miles, is Fort Augustus, a small village but very popular with tourists, bursting with shops, hotels, restaurants, not to mention the opportunity to watch the boats go through the loch system into Loch Ness.
Further north is Drumnadrochit, 30 miles, Inverness. 47 miles.
Heading south from the lodges is Spean Bridge, 12 miles, 2 Hotels, a restuarant,
Anoch Mor, 15 miles, excellent Ski Centre and the famous Down Hill World Mountain Bike Championships is held here.
On to Fort William, 26 miles from the lodges, here is the base of Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in Great Britain, 4406 ft!
Fort William is a busy town, with an abundance of Hotels, Restuarants, Large Super Markets and a variety of shops.

"Heaven is here!!!"
To start with we would like to say a BIG thank you to Claire and Ian for looking after us so well! You two are the best hosts ever and the most wonderful people!
We enjoyed our stay at the Great Glen cottages especially my parents who had come from India for a visit and our 15 months old daughter. In my parents' words "This place feels like Heaven!" If you love nature and some peace and quiet then this place is for you. Our daughter loved watching the birds from the living room, her favourite spot;)) and enjoyed exploring around the cottage, tapping her feet on the wooden floor:))
The location is perfect as a base for exploring the highlands and to relax amidst natural beauty! And the icing on the cake are the wonderful hosts! We have already been back to say hello to them and to get our daughter's favourite ball back!!!!
We wish you both lots of good luck for the future and KUDOS for being such lovely hosts. Hope to see u again soon!
N.B. Sorry for the late review!!
Thank you so very much for such a Wonderful Rewarding Review.
It was a pleasure having you to stay with us and even more so to be able to meet both of your parents and family when you popped by to pick up the ball for your little daughter, all the way from Edinburgh!
We would be delighted to see you and your family again!

"Dream place to stay"
Situated in a picturesque location on the shores of loch lochy. No need to go out for sight seeing, you can simply sit outside your lodge and observe the changing scenery throughout the day. You can even see the mirror image of the trees, mountains and clouds in the lake. Claire and Ian are perfect hosts and are very helping. Cottages are comfortable and fully equipped. If given a chance, I would definitely like to go back and stay here.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to write such a lovely review.
We are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay in Rowan Lodge, especially the amazing ever changing scenery that never ceases to amaze us!
Many of our guests return time after time, it would be wonderful to welcome you to stay sometime in the future!

"Great doesn't do it justice"
From booking the stay to leaving on the final day of our holiday - the service received from Claire and Ian was second to none.
Having stayed in Bramble Lodge two years ago I contacted Claire to book this again, as this was not available Claire suggested we use the larger Rowan Lodge for the same price.
The Location, The view and the Lodges themselves are all excellent.
The daily visit of the Pine Martins (encouraged by bread and marmalade) is something that never fails to raise a smile.
The thought that Claire and Ian have put into the information supplied to guests in the folders the put in the lodges is well worth reading and is rewarded many times over - having now been to see the dolphins at fortrose and the deer and other wildlife on the road to nowhere on a couple of occasions based on their recommendation.
The location is ideal for exploring, whether its people like me fascinated by canals, locks, swing bridges, viaducts etc (fort augustus, banavie, garlochy, culloden,glenfinnan) or WW11 history (Cromarty, Arisaig) Older History (Culloden, Glencoe) Film History (Morar - Local Hero, Glenfinnan Viaduct -Harry Potter),.the area has it all.
Just looking for places that are nice to look at and places to stretch your legs (Loch Morar, Arisaig, Falls of Foyer).
The only criticism I have is that there is too much to do and not enough time, good enough reason to go back.
I haven't even mentioned Eilean Donan castle (on the Skye Road) or island hopping on the ferries or Oban, Fort William and many other places.
This is the perfect spot fro exploring and then on an evening the perfect place to relax - I can't recommend this place highly enough.
Many, Many Thanks for taking the time to write such a wonderful and amazing review!
With endless idea's for day's out within easy commuting distance, even some I have yet to visit myself!
It was a sheer pleasure seeing you both return for a second time and it goes without saying we would love to welcome you back sometime in the future!
