“Fab location, fab accomodation!”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Absolutely fabulous. We have just returned from four nights at the Moorings. The house was absolutely beautiful, perfect for a relaxing few days away. Plenty of space and excellent facilities for cooking and relaxing after a day walking or out and about.
Easy 25 minutes walking distance from Fort William. We walked in to town almost every day during our stay, perfect location. Also easy to drive out to Glen Coe and other surrounding areas due to location on the main route to Fort William.
Chris was a perfect host, accommodating but not pushy. Really helpful in pre-visit communication re: location, arrival time etc.
Thoroughly recommend. We will likely return and we don't tend to go two places twice.

“Outstanding property in a fantastic location, a great base for a motorcycling holiday”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The property is very new and pristine, but welcoming, homely and warm. Great location just outside Fort William with fantastic views over the Loch from the full height, triple glazed, front windows. The mood lighting and shower/sauna are great features, as are the BBQ on the balcony and the beach hut by the loch. Parking is quite secure, away from view of the road. We used the property as a base for motorcycling. It is well located for exploring the Highlands and Islands. There was plenty of storage space in the ground floor bedroom for storing all our motorcycling kit. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. The only thing missing was an instruction manual for the mood lighting and shower/sauna which we mentioned to the owners, and they said they would sort this for future guests.

“What an amazing experience”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

The moorings is simply stunning its fitted out to the highest standards and what an amazing view.
It's like a modern futuristic lodge impeccably clean with relaxing views that change by the hour.
The beach has a warm and cosy beach shelter with a fire pit ready to watch the sun setting before retiring to finish off that bottle of wine left on the table.
The only disappointment was not renting it for a longer period, we will be back next year for sure.
