If you find fault with this nine acre, 4-star site, then I would be flabbergasted, and I guarantee that you will not want to leave. Owners, Trish and David offer a warm friendly welcome to everyone – making you feel extra special.
With self-catering lodges, sleeping from two to four people, extremely comfortable beds, luxury bedding and towels as well being fitted out to a high standard. White goods include large fridge, some with washer/dryers, drying rooms attached to each building and free Wi-Fi. Trish ensures personal touches are added throughout.
For extra comfort and luxury book into Aonach Mor, a recently developed lodge, sleeping up to five, with a king-sized bed, open plan kitchen and lounge area, dishwasher and bi-folding doors that open onto an outdoor balcony. This accommodation is wheelchair friendly, with wide hallway and fully tiled wet room.
The free toilet/shower blocks are immaculate, with a dishwashing area, laundry room with iron and board and a fridge.
There are nineteen hard standing pitches for touring caravans, all with electric hook up. Four log pods are available for those providing their own sleeping bags, towels and toiletries, and with thirty tenting pitches (two with electric hook ups). Well trained dogs along with their well-behaved owners are welcome. All grassed areas are exceptionally looked after and all this overlooked by a vista of mountains, enjoy an evening stroll around the river walk. Gas bottles are available from reception.
The site is situated in the heart of the highlands. Roy Bridge is a quiet, peaceful village with two pubs and the Darwins Rest café. Literally, three minutes’ walk from the site, brings you to the train station and all the treasures that await your discovery, including journeys to Mallaig, Rannoch Station or Corrour – with some serious walks for the more discerning walker. Just three miles from Spean Bridge and its famous Commando Memorial, dedicated to the men of the original British Commando Forces, overlooking the training area depot, established in 1942 at Achnacarry Castle. The village provides a local shop, nine-hole golf course, hotel, restaurants, café and outdoor children’s play area.
Ten miles down the road brings you into Fort William, with features including cinema, pubs, restaurants, chemists, gift and book shops. You will also find several supermarkets and in the Nevis Centre (opposite Morrisons) an indoor children’s play area, bowling alley, events hall and café. Not forgetting the year-round activities and outdoor competitions that the area offers, including the UK’s only mountain gondola. There is a never-ending stream of things to do to suit all ages and abilities.
I am confident you will enjoy your stay.
