Cottage
Set amongst ancient oak woodland, Acorn Cottage has been described by our repeat guests as 'home from home'. This charming, modern, architect designed semi detached property is perfectly situated to allow you to relax in the tranquility of the highlands. Panoramic upstairs lounge windows look out across the Caledonian Canal, Aonach Mor and Nevis Range ski centre. The imposing north face of Ben Nevis itself is visible beyond from the garden where Woodpeckers, Jays, Goldfinches, Nuthatches and Siskins are among the numerous species who visit the garden feeders. Buzzards and eagles soar overhead, deer peer through the rhododendrons and pine martens hide in the shadows. All this even before leaving the comfort of this spacious well presented accommodation.

Buzzards and eagles soar overhead, deer peer through the rhododendrons and pine martens hide in the shadows. All this even before leaving the comfort of this spacious well presented accommodation. Acorn Cottage is ideal for families and couples alike and offers the perfect base for exploring Lochaber, Isle of Skye, Glencoe, Loch Ness and the West Coast. The comfort of two bedrooms offered by Acorn Cottage is ideal if you are a party of four or like a little bit extra space for your holiday, however, we can now offer Little Oaks (property ID 8768828) as a one bedroom apartment with king size bed within our grounds for couples or single travellers who want the same quality accommodation on a slightly smaller scale. Whether you enjoy the white beaches of Morar Sands, Sea Kayaking around the idyllic seclusion of Arisaig, or high adrenalin pursuits of white water rafting near Ballachulish, Fort William the 'Outdoor Capital of the UK has something to offer guests of all ages. Take an unforgettable trip on the Jacobite steam train made famous in the Harry Potter films or take a short ferry crossing to Mull, Iona, Ardnamurchan and Skye. Spot eagles on Loch Shiel or try your luck at whale/dolphin watching near Oban, For more active visitors, the area is an outdoor enthusiasts paradise, with world cup mountain biking, skiing/snowboarding and high ropes adventure only a short drive and cable car ride away. Fort William boasts some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland, with walking, climbing and cycling all year round. Walks are available to suit all abilities. Whether it be the long distance upon the West Highland Way or Great Glen Way, or the highest mountain in Scotland. Lochaber offers opportunities to scale Munros, or leisurely walk the areas many hundreds of miles of forestry and moorland tracks. Acorn Cottage will be there to welcome you home. Thoughtfully decorated and furnished, we hope to offer you a quiet haven completely equipped to meet your needs. We offer bike storage, an option to connect the two single beds together to make a second double bed and seasonal decoration of the cottage at Christmas. Guests are advised that the downstairs bedroom has an ensuite, whilst the upstairs open plan plan living area provides access to both the master bedroom and adjacent bathroom. More

About the neighbourhood
The west coast of Scotland offers white sand beaches, glistening Lochs and miles of country to explore. With day trips to Inverness, Skye and Loch Ness an easy option, Fort William is the perfect destination to experience all the Highlands has to offer.
Getting around
As we are about 6 miles away from the centre of Fort William, a car is essential. Acorn Cottage is a rural destination, so personal transport is a must to do the area justice, allowing you to explore off the beaten track and visit the nearby attractions. There are bus routes to Inverness, Skye & Oban and train links to Glasgow & Mallaig, all accessed from the bus/train station in Fort William.
