    The beautiful Isle of Skye, and the smaller inner isles of Rum, Muck, Eigg and Canna, are all easily reached by short ferry crossings from nearby Mallaig. Explore the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, the most westerly point of mainland Britain, where a short ferry crossing from Lochaline will take you across to the islands of Mull, Staffa and Iona.

    The area has an abundance of wildlife and is steeped in history, with many ruined castles and ancient monuments to visit. Fort William and Glencoe, with their famous mountain ranges, are extremely popular with walkers, climbers and skiers, whilst the Nevis Range hosts the UCI World Mountain Bike Championships. Enjoy visits to Oban, a bustling harbour town, Loch Ness to try and spot the monster and Inverness, the Highland capital. For the less energetic, why not sit and relax on the patio with a glass of wine and watch the boats passing by. Shop 10 miles, pub and restaurant 11 miles.

    What an amazing week spent in this lovely cottage. Dorothy and Charlie really gave us a warm welcome and provided us with everything we needed and throughout our stay was always at hand. The cottage is beautiful and clean. And the location was perfect with the most beautiful views across the Loch and of Fort William. We would defiantly be back!

    The bungalow was spacious and decorated to a modern standard, but more importantly located in a very quiet area with what is probably the best view of Ben Nevis in the country. Dorothy is an excellent host and was there to welcome us when we arrived. She even surprised us with a few welcome treats which we weren't expecting. There aren't any local amenities as the bungalow is on the opposite site of Loch Linhe, but if you don't mind the drive it's only 40 mins into Fort William. If you don't want to drive, there is a ferry at Camusnagaul just 15 mins walk away that takes you into Fort William, or Dorothy is happy to get whatever you need while she is in town.

    Ben View is comfortable, cosy, well equipped and spacious. Dorothy’s welcome hamper is fantastically generous and she even ‘warmed’ the kettle to greet us! As advertised Ben View is remote but the views are stunning. There are games & DVD’s provides, but you need to ensure that you have things to do because when it rains, it rains; and you maybe decide not to venture out!

    My first return visit to Ben View since November last year. This time Spring had arrived. I appreciated the same warm and friendly welcome from the owners Dorothy and Charlie who live locally. A thoughtful and generous welcome pack of treats plus some basic food items are kindly provided by D&C. The house is very clean, most comfortably furnished and tastefully decorated. The house is very well provided for family self catering. Then there is the view, wow, right across the Loch to Fort William with 'The Ben' looming over the town. A view I would never tire of whatever the season. I so enjoyed returning to this pleasant home each day after a strenuous day in the hills. All in all a ten out of ten holiday property.

    This home is spotless and wonderfully furnished to a very high standard, the homes is warm and welcoming. The owner Dorothy makes sure you want for nothing on arrival. The views are amazing from the home. Come rain or shine you won't be short of things do do. From going up Ben Nevis on foot or by cable car, travelling to Mallaig on the Harry Potter train, lazing on the silver sand beach of Morar . There is so much history to explore, you can even visit a whiskey distillery in Fort William and within a short drive you can feed wild Deer so remember you buy carrots. I would love to keep this gem of a place to my self but that would not right as the family who own Ben view take pride in this home and rightly so. I can not recommend it enough. One word-**EPIC **, Susan & Andrew . Leyland , Lancashire,

    This property is by far and away the best place we have stayed in Scotland and we have been to Scotland every year for the last 25 years. We would recommend this beautiful bungalow to anyone, it has the best view of anywhere we have been before, is quiet and private.Dorothy and Charlie are lovely people and so welcoming, gave us an introductory tour of what does what and a fantastic welcome package.

    What a place! One of the best cottages we've stayed. A very warm welcome from the hosts and lovely welcome basket. The cottage is very homely and comfy, especially the lovely fluffy blankets in the lounge! Bedrooms are good sizes and we had a very good night sleep. The kitchen is very spacious and it had everything we could have needed! Would highly recommend.

    Nov' 2018 : A warm and kind welcome on arrival from the owners Charlie and Dorothy who live close by. The house is immaculately presented, well furnished, well decorated, very well supplied for self catering. The views of Fort William and Ben Nevis across the loch are superb. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and hopefully will return to explore the region further. Douglas Green

    A perfect setting for one of the best, if not the best cottage we have stayed in, we couldn't fault a thing. Welcome pack/treats left for us were the most generous we have ever had. Could sit looking at the view all day! Weather was kind to us for the time of year. We loved it so much we booked a week for next summer while we were there. Dorothy and Charlie really look after you without being intrusive but on hand if needed.

    We had a great holiday week in Ben View. It is a lovely large home with enough space, comfort and equipment for a whole family. The location is very quiet, but the views over Loch Linnhe towards Fort William and Ben Nevis are great. From the pictures on the Cottages web site we thought it was smaller than the real house! For the future: keep in mind that Fort William is about 15 miles by car mainly over a single lane road and just a few miles across the Loch. That is also where shops, pubs and other amenities can be found.

    Derek and Brita from the Isle of Man. Sept 15th to Sept 22 2018 We have really enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable cottage which is furnished to a high standard. We irrevocably recommend a stay here. Dorothy and Charlie are the perfect owners being very helpful when needed and providing a brilliant welcome pack. There are a lot of activities in the area. We have stayed in the Highlands for many years. We must come here again this cottage is hard to beat.
