Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Fort William and Ben Nevis [25 miles]

No trip to Lochailort village would be complete without attempting Britain's highest mountain! OK we'll admit not all of us fancy hiking our way up to see the view at the top so thankfully for the less inclined among us, the enclosed Gondola system will take the hard work out. Transporting visitors to 2150 feet high up the north face of Aonach Mor, you will be stunned by the breathtaking views of the Scottish Highlands, including the Great Glen, Ben Nevis, and the surrounding areas. On a clear day this spectacular view can extend as far as them Inner Hebrides.

Nevis Range

Fort William is known as the outdoor capital of the UK. With so many activities including Mountain Bike World Championships and The Nevis Range ski resort, it's easy to see why. Traditionally a fishing village, Fort William with a pedestrianized high street, also offers independent shops and cafés to while away a sunny afternoon.

Loch Ness Monster

Loch Ness is the largest body of fresh water in Britain and certainly worth a trip. With many cruises available up &down Loch Ness, Nessie spotting couldn't be a more enjoyable day out. A particularly picturesque stop on the canal is Fort Augustus (55 miles from the cottage). With a flight of 5 locks and historic Benedictine Abbey, there is plenty to see and do.

Mallaig and the Isle of Skye

Mallaig Harbour The “Road to the Isles” on which the cottage sits, up to Mallaig is one of the most scenic routes you will come across on your travels. On each turn of the road the landscape changes, past mountains and around lochs, to that moment when you reach the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. On the horizon you can see the Islands of the Hebrides.

Lochailort

Arienskill cottage is so well placed for exploring the West Coast of Scotland, it is hard to narrow down all the things to see & do there.
Lochailort village is in one of the most rugged parts of the Scottish Highlands – the Gaelic name for it is 'An Garbh Criochan' which translates as the 'Rough Bounds'. The whole area, with its soaring mountains and complex coastlines, is glacial in origin and this has produced some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
The cottage is located on the 'Road to the Isles' and the West Highland railway follows this road for much of its scenic length. The train station is nearby.
Set in the Glenfinnan area of the Highlands, there is so much to do with walking, cycling and fishing all to be enjoyed from Lochailort village. With the Lochailort Inn as a touring base Loch Ness, The Isle of Skye, Ardnamurchan and Oban are all a comfortable day out. The famous Glenfinnan viaduct from the Harry Potter films is less than 10 miles.

The famous monument is the focal point of Glenfinnan, marking the point where the standard was raised by Bonnie Prince Charlie and his followers at the start of the doomed 1745 Jacobite rebellion. The National Trust visitor centre is certainly worth a visit to find out more about Bonnie Prince Charlie in the area before fighting his way as far south as Derby.

“Absolute Heaven”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2016

Wow! What a beautiful cottage, surrounded by stunning scenery. The cottage was beautiful, the real wow factor being the garden room with amazing views. What a lovely surprise to find homemade jam, shortbread, bread, butter and Prosecco. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were sad to leave. Hope to return.

“Nice house, location - shame about the roadworks”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

This was an expensive week. House was nice and well equipped and views from conservatory of surrounding mountains and loch all very idyllic. It would have been adied by better information about local walks and permissable access to the surrounding countryside, not too difficult to provide a map and walking routes especially at £1200 pw. I mentioned also the roadworks, but the proximity to the main road was not apparent from the description of the house or maps, and it felt we were too close to the road and not as remote as led to believe from the marketting blurb. Also, major midge attacks after sun down - be prepared.

“Superb”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2016

We had a superb stay in this cottage,beautiful location as well as a great base for exploring the local area which is stunning.

Thank you for your lovely review, I am very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay.

“The perfect Scottish cottage holiday.”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2015

Our mouths fell open when we arrived here; the cottage sits perfectly nestled between a large rocky outcrop and the grassy area by a cute little loch which is part of the river for this valley. It is surrounded by massive mountains and we were lucky enough to spend a day here watching the raging snow storm up 'on the tops'. The cottage is quintessentially Scottish, with beautifully detailed pink heather and sage tones throughout. The beds were delightfully comfy and we slept well. All our breakfasts and evening drinks and meals were spent in the conservatory; if you stay here you will see why we chose to base ourselves in this room! The stairway would make it difficult for anyone with a disability to access the bedrooms, so apart from that we thoroughly recommend this place for a holiday stay. From here we visited the coast at Mallaig, and also made a day trip to Inverness and Loch Ness. Fort William is a charming town. The nearby pub at Lochailort is recommended too.

We are absolutely delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. It was our pleasure to accommodate you and hopefully we will see you again!
