There is an open connected decking area round three sides of the cabin from which to enjoy relaxing evenings watching the sunsets. Local attractions include Ben Nevis, Neptunes staircase (the start of the Caledonian Canal), Glenfinnan viaduct, Jacobite Steam Train (better known now as Hogwarts Express from the Harry Potter movies), Glen Coe with its stunning scenery and many famous Munro's, Loch Ness and Nevis Distillery. The road to the Isles is on the opposite side of Loch Eil and is a beautiful scenic route to Mallaig from where you can sail to Skye and the Western Isles. You will pass the renowned White Sands of Morar- one of the best beaches on the West Coast and well worth a visit. Ardnamurchan Peninsula is not to be missed with its abundant wildlife, crystal clear waters and outstanding beauty, terminating at the Lighthouse which is the most westerly point on the U.K. mainland. ACCOMMODATION The Cabin sleeps 6 people, comprising of one extra large double bedroom with French doors leading on to the decking with the addition of a discrete single bunk and sofa bed to convert to a family room. The second bedroom is a cosy double bedroom, both bedrooms have very large built in wardrobes to store your cases and clothing.

Well equipped modern kitchen with induction hob, fan assisted oven, sink, microwave, washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer. The kitchen leads through to the open plan dining area and comfortable lounge, which has TV/DVD with Free View channels (plus radio channels), music system including ipod dock, luxury leather suite and open views to the Loch at the front and surrounding hills and woodland from all the windows. Heating is provided by electric wall panels throughout but for those romantic chilly winter evenings there is a very efficient wood burning stove. The area surrounding the cabin is enclosed by fencing with parking area within. Free Wi-Fi is also included. More
