“Great place to stay over Christmas”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We had an excellent stay at Pinewood over the Christmas period. The cottage is ideally placed for time spent in the snow at Glencoe or the Nevis range. The property is in an isolated area thus a car is essential. All facilities worked well and we loved the peace and quiet of the location.The owner provided us with a Christmas tree and firewood for a fire on Christmas day.The only negative was on arrival when we could not find any signage directing us to the cottage.

“Wonderful location”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

One week here and left relaxed and ready to take on the world again. Beautiful location, views wonderful - as only in Scotland we had every season in one day - rain, sun, snow, hail,windy but end of week the sun was splitting the trees. The house is a great size with plenty of room for everyone. Comfotable beds and beautiful linen. Very quiet and the two dogs had great time exploring the canal and surrounding area.

“Excelent base. Comfortable and warm. Brilliant views.”
Reviewed 17 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Couldn't have been better located for touring Western Scotland with trips to Mull,Oban, Aviemore, Inverness and Skye all within a pleasant day's travel. There were only the two of us and the pictures don't show how big the house really is with good quality furniture, a huge Kitchen, Dining Room and Lounge, all with excellent views of the Caladonian canal and mountains beyond. Anita and Iain were very helpful with a small problem and went out of their way to make things right. I would highly recommend this property. Relaxing and remote but still within easy reach of Spean Bridge amenities and Fort William. A big thank you to Anita and Iain.

“Absolutely stunning location and a beautiful and comfortable place to stay.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

What a fantastic place. The cottage is situated in a We We visit Scotland every year and this has got to be the best location and most comfortable cottage we have stayed in.
Spectacular location with views of the beautiful mountains. The children always had something to do walking,feeding the ducks and watching the boats pass.
Will definitely recommend and will most definitely come to stay here again.

“Excellent views, beautiful location”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed with 5 adults and 2 children (under 2). The accommodation was very spacious, set in a beautiful location (right on the Caledonian canal) with amazing views of Ben Nevis and the surrounding mountains. It is in the middle of nowhere, with local amenities a few miles away in Spean Bridge, so ideal if you like walking, scenery and geocaching! Also close enough to Fort William should you require bigger shops, an A & E etc (one granny broke her wrist on day 2 - not recommended, but staff at the Belford were amazing!) :D
