2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Banavie, Fort William, Lochaber, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Built by the famed Scottish engineer and architect Thomas Telford in 1815, this former lock keeper's house stands proud on Neptune's Staircase, a stunning flight of eight locks on the Caledonian Canal. With superb views along the canal and across to Ben Nevis, it's a great base for four to explore the Scottish Highlands and Western Isles.

Telford House East is a semi-detached property which was restored by Scottish Canals in early 2012 and now provides high quality holiday accommodation in a sought after waterfront location.

We stayed for 3 nights during December and what a fabulous quaint cottage. Great location for wondering around with shops only a short drive away.
