The Scottish Highlands region

Thistle 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.

Spean Bridge

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.
