Fort William, Fort William

Highland. Sleeps up to 18

An impressive example of nineteenth-century Victorian architecture, this imposing sporting lodge on the west highlands of Scotland continues the tradition of being a hugely popular sporting let. Extended over 40,000 acres this managed estate offers striking Highland scenery, plenty of outdoor fun and nature watching galore.

Whilst its primary focus is catering for sporting let groups, outside the main season this large holiday home welcomes groups of families and friends looking for a no-fuss, comfortable, outdoorsy type holiday in the Scottish wilds.

On entering there is a cloakroom which then leads into a large reception hall with roman style pillars and a feature staircase, so there is an air of grandeur from the outset.

The main drawing room with open fire is a grand room with fine pictures and comfortable chairs, with fantastic views overlooking Loch Linnhe. There is a study next door and a secondary sitting room for a more informal gathering, which has a TV. One of the most impressive rooms though, the room that catches the eye is the large billiard room with full-size snooker table, just perfect for relaxing at the end of the day.

A further games room with table tennis table is also available for use.
 
The dining room is a traditional shooting lodge room with fine pictures of red deer and Highland cattle and antiques throughout, comfortably accommodating a group of 18.

The kitchen is to be found along the corridor and is the domain of the cook, with everyone welcome to see what goes on in here. As all bookings include the services of a housekeeper and cook, with food bills charged separately, it means that the cook is in charge of this impressive large kitchen.

Accessed just off the shore road, it is a short drive up to the house. The grounds include a pitch and putt area in summer months, wonderful gardens and a summer house. Some stocked brown trout ponds are available for fishing as part of the let, with additional fishing available as an extra. The estate also offers as extra activities including stalking, clay pigeon shooting (guns not provided), mountain biking, walking and wildlife watching.

Located on the Ardgour peninsula, 12 miles south-west of Fort William, it is accessible by road via the A861 to Corran, or by ferry which is a short 5-minute journey across Loch Linnhe. There is a village store within 15 minutes drive, and the nearest pub would be the Inn at Ardgour. For shopping, then a trip to Fort William is required where there is a major supermarket. This house is ideal for a family holiday, an activity-based group and for those wishing to explore the West coast of Scotland.
