Hi, John and Gillian,
The best thing was the dramatic scenery. The worst, the fact that we didn’t see a pine marten, but perhaps next time.
An excellent base, very close to Fort William, Glencoe, Oban and some great walks.
Wild life (saw red squirrels and deer) and several spectacular waterfalls
Very nice cottage and had everything we needed as well as being very up together and very snug - I think we were very lucky with the weather, only a bit of misty rain on our last day, so we could see the tops of the hills for 7/8 days.
Good selection of books and games in the house. The kids really enjoyed the pool game.
We seemed to pack in quite a bit :- walking every day (about 3-4 miles), with Inchcree and Nevis Gorge the best walks.- seal boat trip from Fort William- Sea Life Centre/Fort William pool with water slide- the new Glencoe Visitors Centre (not too impressed) as we can remember the old one.
Nevis Range gondola- several visits to Crafts & Things (as you said in your guide a great place to stop for refreshments and a good range of gifts)
The photo was taken from the Holly Tree pier near the cottage. JW
