We booked three nights at Lochaber Lodges for my family of five and two friends over Easter Break. We were offered a Glendale Lodge which included three bedrooms (double w/ en-suite and four singles across two rooms), kitchen, and living room area. The two other bedrooms share a toilet/shower. Although these accommodations are tight, they fit our needs perfectly.
Frank and his staff are nice and helpful. The lodges are clean and well kept. The location has scenery that is tough to beat and is only a short drive from Fort William. We found it equally easy to reach our other Highland destinations from Lochaber Lodges.
This is a great option for families. I felt comfortable allowing my children to use the playground facilities and explore the property. It was great to be able to put the kids to bed, but still have an area in which to socialize with other adults in our party. If travelling with a baby/toddler, they may need to sleep with mom and dad, otherwise you'll have a VERY tight squeeze in the double after placing your crib.
I would definitely book here again for a visit to this area of the Highlands.
