Offering large groups of friends and family a unique and comfortable place to stay, Corran Lighthouse Lodge is a fabulously converted lighthouse keeper’s cottage on the West Coast of Scotland in Ardgour. Situated on the shoreline of Loch Linnhe, a stunning tidal sea loch near Fort William, this holiday home has exceptional views down across the water.
Inside, the accommodation can comfortably sleep 10 people in five en-suite bedrooms, offering lovely views and a great night’s sleep. The bedrooms are spacious and filled with natural light, offering you a lovely spot to come back to after a day out and about.
There’s also a large and elegant living room with a wood burning stove and some comfy furnishings making it perfect for cosy evenings in, however the room is also bright and airy in the daytime meaning it’s great all year round. The lounge also offers yet more pretty views of the loch, so you can while away hours gazing out of the window.
If you want a space for some peace and quiet to relax with a book on your own, then the small reading room upstairs is perfect for you. Corona Lighthouse Lodge is also great for kids, as the spacious area between the entrance and the kitchen has been converted into a play area. It’s complete with bean bags, a TV, a DVD player and games.
The big country kitchen is full of character and has plenty of top quality appliances meaning cooking will never be a chore. There’s a four-ring oil Aga, electric cooker and an oven, meaning you have plenty of options when it comes to dinner time. There is also a nice spacious dining room next to the kitchen which comfortably seats 10 people, so you can enjoy a sociable meal after a day out exploring. The utility room sits at the entrance to the property and has an American fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer with plenty of room to store walking boots and coats.
Built in 1860 by Thomas and David Stevenson, father and uncle to Robert Louis Stevenson, Corran Lighthouse is still working and is operated by the Northern Lighthouse Board. Guests who venture out to explore the area will be pleased with the array of wonderful scenery on their doorstep. The lodge is nicely placed for exploring Lochaber, Glencoe and Ardnamurchan. You’re also surrounded by mountains and crags which are great for hill walks and mountain biking. Fort William, at the head of Loch Linnhe, is just 9 miles away via the ferry, and Oban, the Isle of Mull, and Fort Augustus are also easily accessible.
There is an Inn nearby which serves food. There's a local shop in the village of Clovullin (a short drive from the Lighthouse) for basic supplies. Otherwise, there are supermarkets (Morrisons and a large Marks & Spencer Foodhall) in Fort William which is half an hour's drive via the Corran Ferry. It is a good idea to do a supermarket shot before you arrive.
