Where you’ll be

Highland Council, Scotland, United Kingdom

We live in a quiet cul-de-sac in a residential neighbourhood, literally at the foot of the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis.
Fort William is a small town with lots of cafes and restaurants and bars. There are ample outdoor shops. The town is known for it's outdoor pursuits. They include walking, hillwalking, mountain biking and skiing. Bike hire is readily available locally.
Nevis Range Mountain Experience is approx 6 miles North and provides MTB hire and ski hire. There is a lower cafe, gondola and top cafe with walks available for all abilities. There is also a High Wire Activity Centre suitable for all ages.
Fort William also has Lesiure Centre with swimming pool and full gym facilities.
Local places to explore include the very beautiful Glen Nevis.
The Caledonian Canal with Neptunes Staircase is located a short drive over in Banavie where you can follow the canal in both directions to walk/cycle up to Gairlochy or head to the Corpach Basin area where a new marina is currently being built.
There are visitor attractions locally including Old Inverlochy Castle and the Commando Memorial in Spean Bridge.
The very famous Glenfinnan Viaduct where the Harry Potter Hogwart's Express glides over and also the Glenfinnan Monument.
Further afield to the West but within an hours drive there are the Silver Sands of Morar with the stunning views to the Small Isles. The small fishing port of Mallaig, where you can take the ferry to the Isle of Skye and explore the incredible scenery.
Going North through the picturesque Fort Augustus, again meeting the Caledonian canal before it opens out into Loch Ness... don't forget to Nessie hunt! A further hours drive takes you to the Highland City of Inverness.
Aviemore to the East is also for a day trip. Here you can visit the Highland Wildlife Park on route, before exploring Loch Morlich and the MTB trails in the forest of striking ancient caledonian pines.

I'm a simple country gal. Love getting out and about at the weekend with Hubby Brian in our campervan with our rescue dog Dexter for long walks on our local beach or forest trails. Enjoy city breaks when life allows. At home i am an avid DIYer. Love to upcycle something to breathe new life into it. Having spent a good few years renovating our 70s bungalow, am now the proud owner of a greenhouse. Hoping to find my green fingers real soon. I'm an NHS Dental nurse so my cleanliness and cross infection are tip top ! We set up our own AirBnb to meet and greet like minded people. Looking forward to everyone who decides to book with us.
