Condo/Apartment
Two delightful and very luxurious cottage apartments situated in a unique and peaceful location on the banks of the Caledonian Canal at Banavie Bridge on the outskirts of Fort William. The cottage has magnificent views to the front over the Canal, Neptune's Staircase and the steam railway used in the Harry Potter films. To the rear there are stunning views of Ben Nevis and the surrounding mountains. The property has been renovated to a very high standard and each apartment has one double bedroom. The lower apartment has a Jacobean style four poster bed and a whirlpool bath with shower over. As well a central heating there are open fires in the lounges along with satellite TV, a DVD player and a good selection of films, books and local information guides as well as free wifi.
