The property is set in beautiful grounds, with lovely views (especially at sunset).

You do need to drive to any walks or attractions - it's about 7 miles from Glencoe and 20 from Fort William, Ben NeRead morevis etc., but the roads are so beautiful that this was not a problem.

We enjoyed a lovely peaceful holiday in a great apartment. It was very well fitted out in brand new kitchen and comfortable lounge/dining room. Outside space was a spacious garden, which our Bernese Mountain dog loved to sit in, particularly in the evenings with us watching the sun go down over the distant hills. We also had fabulous weather.
