Last minute getaway
I chose here for last minute getaway as a surprise for my Hubby on our anniversary. I wanted somewhere we could sit and watch the world go by and recharge the batteries and that’s exactly what I got! The drive to the lodges is worth the trip alone…the road in from the north takes you past the beautiful Loch Laggan. The road from the south brings you through the stunning Glencoe mountains.
The lodge itself is easy to find, set back from the road and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Although the lodges sit side by side they are still very private due to their positions. We stayed in Heron and the views across Loch Linnhe and onto the surrounding hills are beautiful. The lodge was spotless, very comfortable, fully equipped with all you need. There is a lovely wood burner but we didn’t need it…we managed to hit the Highlands on a gloriously hot day! The shower is definitely a ‘power shower’ and the bath is one that you can actually lie in properly (the best part is there is two of each!), beds were comfortable – we have a super king size at home and it’s rare to find one one holiday and the bedding was spotless which is a big thing for me! Rooms are spacious so it’s perfect for a family as well as a couple.
There’s loads to do on the doorstep and we’d recommend a wee trip with Crannog Cruises which you’ll find just five minutes up the road in Fort William itself. They’ll take you down Loch Linnhe (past the lodges!) and show you the fish farms, mussels farms, beautiful views of Nevis and if you’re lucky (as we were) the seals playing and swimming in the Loch. We’ll definitely be back…hopefully in winter to see another side of the area (and we’ll maybe need the wood burner too!)
