Banavie, Fort William, Lochaber, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Set amongst ancient oak woodland, Acorn Cottage has been described by our repeat guests as 'home from home'. This charming, modern, architect designed semi detached property is perfectly situated to allow you to relax in the tranquility of the highlands.

Panoramic upstairs lounge windows look out across the Caledonian Canal, Aonach Mor and Nevis Range ski centre. The imposing north face of Ben Nevis itself is visible beyond from the garden where Woodpeckers, Jays, Goldfinches, Nuthatches and Siskins are among the numerous species who visit the garden feeders.

Acorn Cottage is ideal for families and couples alike and offers the perfect...

This self catering accommodation is first class. The garden is peaceful and so well laid out.The immediate area around the property is very picturesque and tranquil Whilst sunshine is an uncontrollable option in this area of Scotland when it comes out the scenery just lights up.

Management response:

Thank you for leaving us a review. We are delighted you appreciated the cottage and garden. When the sun shines it is idyllic, but the rain helps to keep it all lush and green. A little less would be fine too though! If you venture this way again, we would be only too happy to accommodate you once more. Thank...

This cottage is wonderful, beautifully maintained and presented. Owner was very welcoming and helpful. Pub/family friendly restaurant is a lovely walk along the canal away and Fort William is right on hand. Great base for exploring the area. Would definitely come back.

We are indeed in a lovely spot in the country, but close enough to Fort William for convenience. We would be only too happy to welcome you back, should you venture this way...

About the neighbourhood
The west coast of Scotland offers white sand beaches, glistening Lochs and miles of country to explore.

With day trips to Inverness, Skye and Loch Ness an easy option, Fort William is the perfect destination to experience all the Highlands has to offer.
Getting around
As we are about 6 miles away from the centre of Fort William, a car is essential.
Acorn Cottage is a rural destination, so personal transport is a must to do the area justice, allowing you to explore off the beaten track and visit the nearby attractions.
There are bus routes to Inverness, Skye & Oban and train links to Glasgow & Mallaig, all accessed from the bus/train station in Fort William.
Car advised
How to get there
From Fort William or the A82, take the A830 signposted to Mallaig.

Cross the Banavie swing bridge over the Caledonian Canal and take the immediate right (B8004) entering Banavie.

Pass the Moorings Hotel on your right and continue on this road for 2.2 miles passing the sign for Muirshearlich. Acorn Cottage is a further two minute drive and is signposted on your left along with Oak Lodge and Torbeag House.

Turn up the drive for 30 metres and Oak Lodge is the first property on your right with Acorn Cottage situated just behind. Keys are available from Oak Lodge from 4pm onwards.

Do not go through the gate on the drive which leads to Torbeag House.
