Set in some 19 acres of landscaped gardens and woods stretching to the shores of Loch Nan Uamh in the Sound of Arisaig, stands Fagus Lodge.

Inside it is spacious, light and most comfortable, with the ground floor being effectively at first floor level. The large windows and glazed internal doors ensure that the accommodation is very bright and airy. The sitting room has an open fire in the corner and beautiful views out to the loch. With glazed double doors separating it from the dining room it means that the living area can be treated as a single space if you prefer. From the sitting room you can also access an outdoor decked area (with furniture) that is perfect for having drinks in the evening sunshine.

The large kitchen has plenty of room for food preparation and on this level too are a bunk room and a shower room with WC.

On the next floor are two further bedrooms, a double and a twin, both of which are of a very good size. They are pleasingly furnished and the slightly coombed ceiling in the double room should present no problems for taller guests. A further bathroom, this time with a bath, completes the upstairs accommodation.

Outside, there is ample parking, though access to the building is by a flight of external steps, therefore making this property less suited to those with limited mobility.

Arisaig House, just a short stroll from Fagus Lodge, is now a luxurious guest house (where tenants may dine by arrangement) but was once the HQ of Special Operations Executive in the Second World War.

Map & Local

There is a superb tennis court and games room with pool table and table tennis on the estate for the use of guests in the cottages.

Having come so far and to such a wonderful place the overwhelming temptation will surely be to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery, silver sands and azure sea. Yet Arisaig is not so remote and the road has now improved beyond all recognition.

Fort William can be reached in little over an hour and offers, for practical purposes, major supermarkets and shops and for entertainment, boat trips, mountain biking on international championship trails at Aonach Mor (skiing there in winter), a leisure centre and the challenge of Ben Nevis itself. For a quieter stroll, walk along the Caledonian Canal at Neptune’s Staircase in Corpach, where the Canal makes its final descent to the loch.

On the way to Fort William it is worth pausing at the National Trust site at Glenfinnan and perhaps climbing the column which marks where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard to rally the clans in the 1745 Jacobite rebellion. You will also pass the Glenfinnan viaduct, featured so prominently with the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter films.

Alternatively, turn south at Lochailort to visit Moidart and the Ardnamurchan peninsula, with wonderful wildlife, more beautiful beaches, scenery to die for and, at its tip, the Stevenson lighthouse which forms the westernmost point of mainland Britain.

If you want to explore further, the silver beaches are legendary, while the Traigh golf course at Morar must be one of the most beautiful in the country. From Mallaig you can take the ferry over to Skye or the small isles for the day and there is also great walking in the surrounding hills.
