A wonderful lodge located in an idyllic location with magnificent mountain views. After a day out exploring this Area of Outstanding Natural beauty, enjoy cosy nights in front of the wood burner.

For a paw-friendly holiday to the Highlands, look no further than this characterful holiday home, nestled in the heart of a private woodland offering a tranquil retreat with plenty of tail-wagging adventures. Inside, the wood-clad ceiling and warming wood burner ensure cosy evenings can be spent with your loved ones relaxing by the fireside after a day of exploring. Climb to the heights of Ben Nevis (4 miles) with your active four-legged friends in tow to experience the mighty views from the summit and make memories to last a lifetime.

Filled with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows and warmed by the hue of the wooden features, the open-plan living space is a wonderful place to gather together with friends and family. The kitchen is spacious ensuring you have everything you need to cook up a storm, including a breakfast bar with stools for little hands who want to help out. When dinner is ready, the dining table seats eight with beautiful views out of the windows to set the scene. Three bedrooms are located on the ground floor, a double and two twins which can be made up as king-size beds upon request, with traditional styling and comfortable beds for a good night’s rest. Via the spectacular spiral staircase, you’ll have access to the mezzanine floor which offers a great place for peace and quiet to watch a film on the TV. An additional spacious king-size bedroom is also located on the first floor with a vaulted ceiling and a lovely large window. Outside, there is plenty of space for pups to run and play, with a large patio area for dining alfresco and 10 acres of whimsical woodland to sniff out each morning.

For those in search of a tranquil spot for a picnic, head to Loch Arkaig (20 miles), a remote highland loch surrounded by ancient trees which attracts an array of birdlife, including ospreys in the spring. Further afield, venture to the Cairngorms National Park (30 miles) and you’ll find diverse terrains, flora and fauna alongside a whole host of fascinating wildlife.

Our stay was wonderful. Certain areas of cleanliness require more thorough attention but immediate amenities such as bedding, towels, living space and dining room were spotless. The location is marvellous. Beware if you have dogs though as there is a random yet placid golden retriever that roams the grounds.

A lovely comfortable property overlooking Ben Nevis. The Christmas tree was a nice touch as was the supply of firewood. Only 1 negative- the controls on one of the ovens had obviously come off at some stage and was replaced incorrectly. Messed up our timings for Christmas dinner - we got there eventually!
