Onich, near Fort William
Set in a dramatic West Highland landscape just 10 miles south of Fort William (all facilities, leisure centre, golf, etc), and close to Loch Linnhe with the sweeping mountains of Morvern beyond, Swallow Cottage is a delightful holiday cottage which has just been completely refurbished to a very high standard.
The cottage is a lovely conversion of an old stone steading, just a field away from the water's edge. Inside, there is lots of lovely light natural wood, which adds to the spacious feel of the property.
The new kitchen is very well fitted and equipped. It is open plan to the dining area and a sitting area and stairs go up to a further most attractive galleried sitting room with TV/DVD. Both the double bedrooms are downstairs and have en suite facilities.
The small village of Onich (shops and hotels) is a short walk from the cottage. Brooding Glencoe, with its wonderful walking, skiing and climbing opportunities, is just down the road.
Visitors can take the little Corran Ferry, a mile or so away (no booking necessary) over to the Ardnamurchan peninsula and proceed to Mull and Iona via the Lochaline Ferry (again, no booking necessary). It's all achievable in a day.
Alternatively, from Fort William, the famous West Highland Steam Railway traces the Road to the Isles along Loch Eil, passing Glenfinnan, where Prince Charlie raised his standard for the '45 Rebellion and on to the end of the line at Mallaig. The famous silver sands of Morar and Arisaig (45m) are perfect on a fine day and there is an excellent links golf course there at Traigh.
To the south, there is riding available near Port Appin, go-karting at Benderloch and a Sea Life Centre and rare Breeds Park just north of Oban (38m). There are plenty of boat trips from Fort William up Loch Shiel or down Loch Linnhe to see the basking seals.
Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
