The Lochaber region
The Scottish Highlands boast some of the most spectacular scenery in the British Isles: majestic mountain peaks: hidden glens; picturesque lochs; dense stretches of forest; remote areas of moorland; deserted beaches with white sand. You are therefore guaranteed fabulous views at every turn.
The varied scenery attracts an equally varied range of wildlife: deer, otters, wildcats, gannets, puffins, sea eagles, minke whales, basking sharks and dolphins are all be frequent sightings across the Highlands.
Sadly, we cannot guarantee dawn to dusk sunshine but the warmth of Highlands hospitality and the right clothing should ensure that you have a good time whatever the weather.
The local area offers great walking whether you're looking for a gentle stroll along the shore of a loch or the challenge of a Corbett ascent - Rois-Bheinn (882m) can be reached on foot from the house.
Sea-kayaking is another popular activity and several local companies offer guided excursions and kayak hire. Holidaymakers with their own kayak, canoe or rowing boat can launch their craft directly from the beach at the front and there is a drying room in the house for afterwards. For yachties, Glenuig (5 miles away) offers moorings.
Fishing enthusiasts can fish for mackerel and sea trout without leaving home - brown and rainbow trout can be fished from local rivers.
For golfers, 9-hole Traigh Golf Course (30 minutes away by car) has been described as one of the most beautifully sited in the world.
Fort William is known as the outdoor capital of the UK offers a full range of activities for the outdoor sports enthusiast.
Popular day trips from the house include:
A wildlife cruise from Arisaig (10 miles) to the contrasting islands of Eigg, Muck and Rum;
A cruise around Loch Sheil;
A drive around the Arnamurchan peninsular - the site of the UK's most westerly point;
A ride on the Jacobite Steam Train across the Glenfinnan Viaduct - made famous in the Harry Potter films;
Discovering the Treasures of the Earth: Europe’s finest private collection of crystals, gemstones and fossils (close to Fort William);
Exploring Skye via the ferry from Mallaig
Visiting Castle Tioram
And the area offers a wealth of eating opportunities from good pub grub to fine dining.

"Superb house - excellent location"
What a fabulous house. As a group, we stay in a house every year, and I am sure we will struggle to find such a fantastic house next year. The location is great, overlooking the loch and mountains. The decor and furnishings are excellent, and the games room kept everyone occupied. Watching the stags in the next field through the binoculars was a particular highlight for me. We swam in the sea at the silver sands of Morar, walked to the white sands of Glen Uig, fished on Lake Shiel, watched the train on the viaduct at Glenfinnan, and saw Minke whales on a boat heading towards Eigg. I would definitely recommend this house, and we would love to return in a few years. Linda

"Stunning house in fabulous location"
We received excellent instructions for finding the house and it was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The whisky and shortbread was a lovely touch. The house is very spacious and all 5 bedrooms are large and comfortable - in our many years of renting large houses, we have not generally found this to be the case so it was a pleasant surprise. The beds were fabulously comfortable and the bathrooms were excellent with powerful showers. Downstairs was equally spacious and comfortable with amazing views. We enjoyed watching the deer who came to the garden every day. There are some good local walks to quiet beaches and we enjoyed trips further afield; especially the ferry to Inverie where we had an excellent meal at The Old Forge pub. We also enjoyed good food at the Lochailort Hotel and the Glenluig Inn. The cafe on the harbour is excellent as is the tearoom at Acharacle. There is so much to do in the area; outstanding hill walking, boats to Skye and the Small Isles, Glenfinnan Monument, the steam train to Mallaig ......... We had a fabulous week and the owner could not have been more helpful
We really appreciate you taking the time to post a review and of course we're naturally delighted that the house proved so comfortable. We’re also pleased you managed to find so much to do both close at hand and slightly further afield. We do hope we will be able to welcome you back to Roshven for a future holiday.

"A perfect venue for the outdoor enthusiast who demands high standards."
This was our ninth annual holiday for a group of friends from the Highlands. The location was perfect offering a range of activities which we would need a month to fulfil. Coopers Knowe is the perfect house to come back to after enjoying a day out in whatever weather the Scottish climate throws at you. Everything is of the highest quality. Pat could not have been more friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. We’re naturally delighted that you had a good time at Coopers Knowe House and got the chance to participate in some of the numerous activities on offer locally. It’s such a shame that the weather couldn't have been kinder during your holiday but of course I'm pleased that you consider the house the perfect place to come back to to get warm and dry again. I hope you will consider holidaying again with us in the not too distant future. Pat Middleton, Coopers Knowe House

"This lovely house ticked all the boxes for my family"
My extended family, 3 generations of us, and we had such fun.What a wonderful property. We are all familiar with the area, and had plans for sightseeing and days out, but a lot of the time we didnt feel the need to go anywhere. views were stunning, and short walks in all directions from the house. we saw otters, and deer with a long list of wild birds that I dont see at home. The cooking was a pleasure, use of the kitchen we took in turns, and didnt eat out once! Difficult to say what was the best feature, perhaps being able to be together with plenty of room.
We really appreciate you taking the time to post a review. We’re naturally delighted that you all enjoyed your holiday and were able to take full advantage of the facilities within the house and the delights immediately close by. The abundance and variety of wildlife are particular attractions of the local area and therefore I’m so glad that you got to see otters, deer and rare birds. We hope you will decide to holiday at Coopers Knowe House again before too long. Pat Middleton Coopers Knowe House

Wonderful house all requirements met and some - lots of space, great kitchen, lots of cupboard staples supplied which was most appreciated. If you are in need of hill walking, beach combing and activities they are all on hand, personally I enjoyed the ever changing views from the house over the loch. Every one in our party enjoyed our break, even breakfasting on the patio for few morning ( in Scotlamd !!!!!! ) the weather was extremely kind to us for our week. Each evening we had visits from two young Stags they seemed to be checking us out. A little bit remote but two pubs within ten minutes each way, all in all we certainly enjoyed our stay at Coopers Knowe.
We really appreciate you taking the time to post a review and are of course delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Coopers Knowe House. We're also pleased that you were even able to enjoy breakfast on the terrace on several mornings, which some might think was simply not possible in the Scottish Highlands! I hope we will be able to welcome you back for another holiday in the future.

"Perfect location for young and old if you want beauty and peace and quiet"
We were a party ranging from 9 years to 50 years old. The house is very spacious and very well appointed with beautifully comfortable bedrooms and a separate games room offering a sanctuary for the older children. The view from the sitting room is exquisite, as is the sitting room itself. The loch is moments from the house, and affords a wonderful location for children, dogs and adults alike to explore in relative safety (boys will be boys) and freedom. If you want space, comfort, seclusion, and not to have to see or speak to anyone, unless you chose to, then this is your perfect place to stay.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. I’m so pleased that you all enjoyed a good time and were able to take advantage of the creature comforts within the house and the opportunities for mini adventures outside. We hope you may consider returning to the Highlands sometime in the future. Pat Middleton Coopers Knowe House

"Amazing home in the midst of Scotland castles, mists, lochs and magic"
There is a perfect combination of luxury and retreat provided by Coopers Knowe House. The pictures convey the lovely property, but until you actually stay there, it's hard to believe that there could be such comfort in such an incredible location. The beds, baths, kitchen are all well equipped. There is plenty of room to relax and chat, the loch is footsteps away, and the drives to the local areas of interest are amazing. Sit outside with the beverage of your choice and enjoy the beauty, solitude and peace of Coopers Knowe House. The owner, Pat, is so very helpful. We will be back!
We really appreciate you taking the time to post a review. We’re naturally delighted that you liked the house so much and that you also enjoyed the drives to the nearby places of interest which we think offer simply stunning views. We hope to be able to welcome you back to the Highlands of Scotland before too long.

"The Finest Quality House..."
Coopers Knowe is a modern house of exceptional quality, managed by professionals and owned by a lovely couple who do all they can to help you enjoy your stay - before during and after the holiday itself. We stay in the Highlands every year and I cannot find fault with this house. The fittings and fixtures are of the highest quality, the spacious and luxurious interior is wonderful and you feel like the owners really appreciate your visit. Needless to say, the property was spotless on arrival and we were shown round the house to ensure that we understood how everything worked. A small welcome gift was most appreciated as was the information provided before and during our stay. Location is spectacular with wonderful views to the loch and surrounding Corbets. This is an isolated spot though so be prepared to travel should you need entertainment or even provisions. Even though the weather was lousy during our stay, we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves in this lovely house, sleeping on wonderful beds, bathing in lovely bathrooms and being able to split our large group between the lounges and teenager-friendly games room. We saw a lot of wildlife whilst in the house - an inquisitive Pine Martin came looking for us on several occasions and we had a beautiful Deer visit the garden. Thanks very much to the Middleton's for allowing us to share your amazing house. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good quality and who knows the difference between places who merely tick boxes and those who are focussed on high quality.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. I’m delighted to hear that you had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday despite the weather which sadly was not very good throughout your stay. I’m also pleased that you got to see a pine marten – the variety of the local wildlife is a real feature of the local area. We hope to be able to tempt you back before too long and that next time you stay at Coopers Knowe the loch will be bathed in sunshine for much of the time.

"Room with a view"
In fact every room had a wonderful view. Beautifully appointed house with supper quality finish. Five couples for the week had a wonderful time. Local couple were very helpful in organising our arrival and stay. Lovely place for our wedding reception. I told my current wife that I would properly book it for my next wedding. Look forward to coming back before then! Many thanks
We really appreciate you taking the time to post a review. We're naturally always a little anxious when guests book Coopers Knowe House for a very special occasion that the house will live up to expectations so of course we're really pleased to hear that it did. We hope we will be able to entice you back before too long. All the best for a long and happy married life!

we stayed there with extended family, 2 very happy dogs and had the most wonderful relaxing holiday in years. The House is so beautiful we all felt like kings! Pat was extremely helpful throughout the whole booking process, What we have is a heavenly house in a spectacular location with views to die for. Apart from a few midges and the odd downpour (well it is the west coast of Scotland) nothing spoiled our time there. We had enough room for everyone to do their own thing or get together. I could go on and on about how wonderful the house is, the pictures on the website do not do it justice. You will just have to go and see for yourself. You wont be disappointed. . I am a Scotsman and have traveled to may areas in our beautiful country but this is the furthest West and the whole areas is stunning. One of our days sitting on the White Silver sanded beach that was filmed in Local Hero, you could easily think that you where in the Caribbean...if it was a few degrees hotter :)
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. We're thrilled that you liked the house so much and were able to enjoy a thoroughly relaxing holiday. And by the sounds of things, even a Scotsman can be slightly taken aback by just how stunning the beaches are on the west coast! It's certainly true that there are plenty that would rival those of the Greek islands or the Caribbean in terms of scenery, sand and clear water. We very much hope you will consider Coopers Knowe House again for a future holiday.
