  The Detail...

Located in Lochaber, just 15 miles from Fort William, Bishops Bay is a beautifully appointed two-bedroom holiday home with some of Scotlands most stunning scenery on its doorstep. Newly built, on two acres of private land, this well-equipped cottage looks out over woodland and the breathtaking Loch Leven.

Warmed by underfloor heating and a wood-burning stove, you can be assured Bishops Bay will be cosy whatever the time of year. The open-plan living space incorporates a dining area, office and childrens corner, as well as an attractive kitchen. This space is equipped with a microwave, hob and eye-level oven, as well as a Nespresso coffee machine, and is just a few steps away from the dining area with its glass-topped table and rattan chairs. A separate utility room is smarter than most, housing good-looking laundry facilities on the first floor.

The seating area centres on the log-burner and a 40 flatscreen Smart TV. Sliding doors take you out to the terrace where there is more space to relax or dine. The childrens area gives younger guests a place to hang out, with a 32 TV and DVD player, and board games to play.

A gorgeous en suite king room with a built-in wardrobe, dressing table and high-quality soft furnishings is complemented by a second, twin bedroom. The two single beds can be linked to form a super-king if needed. The en suite bathrooms of both bedrooms are equally elegant the king rooms has a bath tub, and the twins has a shower, each with extra luxuries like a heated towel rail and magnifying mirror. Bath robes, slippers and hairdryers are also provided.

The location of Bishops Bay is pretty much unbeatable the ultra-scenic landscapes will see you heading off early and staying out until late.
