“Fabulous”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Chalet Rus is perfect. We hoped for peace and quiet and to completly relax and it was the perfect place to do that. Karl was so welcoming and the log cabin was beautiful home from home with everything we needed and more. The boys walked down to the Loch and watched the Jacobite going from Fort William. Loved every minute of staying here and we will be going back. Would reccommend

“Stunning Views - Cosy Home”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in April 2015

If you want a property out of the way, with fantastic scenery, cosy log fires - you've come to the right place. We booked this great lodge with the plan to get up Ben Nevis. Karl the owner was very helpful, guided us in by mobile and welcomed us to the property that he'd built with his dad. The property had everything you needed, spacious main bedroom and a cool secret den bed that our 8 year old loved! Fantastic log burner. We saw deer and a hedgehog out back and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing and quiet location.

Thank you for your kind words, you have pretty much got it in a nut shell that one can get away from it all and simply embrace the surroundings be at one with nature but at the same time not forgetting that just a few miles away there are all sorts of activities for the family.
Thank you

When my partner and I arrived at Chalet Rus Blaich it was even better than we could have imagined, everything in the chalet is finished to a very high standard, we enjoyed a glass of wine infront of the log burner in the evenings, walked up behind the chalet where the view was even better than inside the chalet, we have already recommended to our friends who will be booking, we shall we back again to explore the highlands further but couldn't imagine staying anywhere else!

Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely, well equipped chalet on a stunning location. Clean. Nice owner. It is a bit isolated, but we loved it. Isolated does also mean quietness, stunning nature and a great unobstucted view.

Our third stay in four months a great place to stay each time better than the last.The chalet is spacious,well equipped and very comfortable.
Enjoyed breakfast on front decking overlooking the loch watching the wildlife.(eagles,deer etc.). Enjoyed evenings watching movies with log burner blazing.
We intend returning soon.
