About this location
The Lochaber region
The River Lochy is referred to as the Queen of the North, set in the Great Glen, with views of Ben Nevis to the South, and the Glen to the North. The Caledonian Canal runs along the river, so tall sailing ships will pass silently along the other side of the valley from the house. Ivy Cottage is situated at the top of the river on Beat One, where you will see anglers fly fishing for salmon.
You can access some of the best walking in the UK from Ivy, either on foot, or by taking a short 10 minute drive to Ben Nevis and the Nevis range.
Take the A830 and within an hour you are on some of the finest beaches in Europe, with sand brought from the Caribbean on the prevailing tides.
If it is the more extreme outdoor activities that interest you, Ivy Cottage welcomes mountain bikers that want to take on the extremes of the Nevis range, and the cottage is set up to allow you and your bikes to be clean and warm at the end of the day.
What ever your reason for visiting the Highlands, Ivy cottage provides a warm welcome, and the set up is designed to make your stay warm and comfortable.
