The Details...

Escape the hustle and bustle of the daily grind at Ardlussa, a former lock keepers cottage set against the spectacular backdrop of the Highlands. Located on the banks of the Caledonian Canal, this gem of a property is the perfect romantic getaway.

Inside this 1-bedroom cottage, the lounge has a wood burning fire as its focal point for those cold, Scottish evenings, as well as a comfy L-shaped sofa to cosy up on and a window seat for gazing at the night sky without light pollution. While there is rustic charm elsewhere in Ardlussa, the kitchen is stylish and modern, complete with a lime green SMEG fridge, oven, microwave, washing machine, and dishwasher. There is also a dining table and chairs for 2 people.

At the other end of the property guests will find the master bedroom with its king size bed and colourful decor and furnishings that perfectly blends with the cottage's more traditional aspects. At the end of the bed there is an exquisite roll top bath - ideal for sinking into after a long day out exploring the beautiful surrounding Highlands. Also leading off the bedroom is a separate en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower, basin, and toilet.

Of course the amazing location only adds to what Ardlussa Cottage offers. Situated in the small hamlet of Gairlochy, it looks across the southern shores of Loch Lochy and also the grandiose landscape of the Lochaber countryside. Just a 10 minute walk from the hamlet and guests can join the fantastic Great Glen Way, the 177km walk which stretches from coast to coast. With lower and higher levels, different sections can be chosen depending on the walker's ability and with it running the length of Loch Lochy and Loch Oich, the views are predictably breathtaking.

The town of Fort William, which sits in the shadow of Ben Nevis - Britain's tallest mountain - is only 20 minutes away by car. Even for those not climbing the imposing peak there is still plenty to do, from pubs serving Scotch whiskey to riding the steam train featured in the Harry Potter films.
