“Perfect location”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Cottage was spacious and clean and had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. I chose this mainly for the location as love the views from the canal at Corpach Loch towards Ben Nevis and a nice walk or run for me in the evening down the canal path. Have visited Fort William on many occasions over the years so have done many of the usual tourist things - it was more about having a base and finding some new walks I'd not done. So great location and base. The cottage had all amenities - TV - washer and tumble dryer etc down to a pizza slice. Decor was as advertised - antique furniture in keeping with the cottage mixed with modern art work and glass/chrome tv unit etc!!! Also a radio/cassette??!!! Whilst it was clean on the surface - lounge carpet had some what looked to be dog hairs - and there were cobwebs in some areas. Wifi was mostly spot on and very handy as caught up on some TV on Iplayer etc. The key was left in outside postbox which was open which I found a little unnerving. Perhaps the safer option would be a box with combination lock given to guests?? Would I visit again - yes definitely due to location - I took sound dock iPad etc with me so had everything I needed really. Would I recommend - yes. With decor update - ipod sound dock etc it'd be 5 stars.

Being Scottish and taking a partner to Scotland in May/June could be really hit or miss with the weather but fortunately it was amazing the whole week and the canal and the cottage were just great! we watched the steam train pass each day, took a trip on it (ignore the 'no availability' on their website and just turn up, lots of seats), walked up Ben Nevis and treated to 360 degree views of the Highlands - a rare, beautiful mountain day, took a day trip to Mull, walked into Fort William along the Great Glen Way, watched the boats come and go in the Staircase and made the most of sitting outside the cottage watching the world go by on the canal path. Magic holiday, really clean well appointed cottage, highly recommend.

“Ideal holiday location”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Really good place to stay with Caledonian Canal in front and Jacobite train going past daily. Great view of Ben Nevis going out each day. Being able to join the Great Glen way and other walks straight outside the door was ideal so no need to drive every day. It's great to see the variety of traffic through the locks each day.
Well equipped and very comfortable property.

“cosy cottage”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

An excellent property, clean, cosy and well equipped.
The cottage is in a good location for visiting places. We enjoyed a day in Skye and another in Inverness where we visited the Culloden Battlefield. Both highly recommended.

We have just spent a great week in the lower Lock keepers cottage. Weather was excellent and the cottage is well placed for lots of interesting day trips. Great to see the steam train go past every morning and canal walkway is good for both walking and cycling. Cottage was great to come back to after a day out and the log fire was great in the evening. This is a great cottage for seeing all that this lovely area has to offer.
