Achintee, Fort William
Spectacular mountain views across Glen Nevis are an impressive feature of this romantic retreat – its glass gable ensures maximum aspects even from the mezzanine floor bedroom. Very comfortably furnished and boasting its own garden and deck overlooking that glorious view, it sits within the grounds of the owners’ home, a mile from the town facilities. The UK’s best mountain bike tracks are close by (there are two bicycles available free of charge for exploring them) and, with a footpath to Ben Nevis just 0.5 miles away, the local hill walking, climbing and skiing (in season) are excellent. Trips to the Silver Sands of Morar and ferry port of Mallaig, passing Glenfinnan where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard in 1745, are a must. Shop and pub 0.25 miles.
