Otter Bank, one of 2 holiday lodges on our family croft.
Heron Bay lodges are substantial solid log lodge situated on the shores of Loch Linnhe, 4 miles south of Fort William.
On a family croft bordered by the Kiachnish River, it enjoys arguably the best view in Lochaber with unrestricted views across the Loch through Glen Scaddle to the hills of Ardgour.
The lodge is luxurious in size and appointment, centrally heated with 2 super king size double/twin bedrooms, both en suite with bath and power shower, and walk in wardrobes. The living space is a large open plan dining lounge and kitchen area. The kitchen is well equipped with fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher.
Both suites and lounge have separate patio door access to a large deck area with patio furniture and BBQ.
There is a drying room with a washing machine and a clothesline to the rear of the property.
Ample parking space for 2 cars and shore access.
The croft on which the holiday property has been built has been in my family for over 300 years, when the clearances took place from Ardgour.
Sharyn Morgan purchased this chalet in 2008
This lodge has been purpose built for holiday lets and so has everything you will need for your holiday.
The view from the lounge and bedrooms are, I think, the best in Fort William, and many of our guests agree.
The property sleeps only 4 persons and I do not accept bookings of more than 4 persons apart from babies in cots.
We had a great time staying at this cabin. The view was perfect and it was a close drive into Fort William, yet felt so remote and quiet.
Property was well maintained and very clean. I was very happy to see that essentials such as towels, tea, coffee, handwash etc. had been provided for the stay.
Sharyn was very quick at replying to all my messages.
Would definitely stay here again! :)
A really lovely lodge - warm and cosy, comfy beds, very clean and well equipped and with the best showers I have ever used in any holiday accommodation. The views across the loch to the mountains are spectacular and the lodge is perfectly positioned to enjoy them to their max.
It's in a great position, right on the shore of the loch and easily accessible. It feels really peaceful and remote but is actually only 5 minutes from Fort William and an easy drive to Nevis Range, Glen Nevis, etc.
Sharyn was really friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome.
My only regret was that we should have booked to stay longer. We will definitely be coming back as it's a perfect base in one of our favourite parts of Britain.
Thanks again Sharyn.
I am really glad I found this little gem of a Lodge resort in Fort William, it ticked all the boxes that I wanted for a winter break, the Wooden style Lodge, the log fire, the immaculate bathrooms and bedrooms, and of course the best bit of all, the view we woke up to every morning.
The photos don't do this lodge justice we were amazed as soon as we walked in! The lodges are not far from the Fort William Village and only 15min drive from the Ski Mountain Resort.
Everything was clean and tidy, we were given towels and hand-towels along with stocked tea and coffee when we arrived. The lodge itself is situated in a secluded area, which is great for having no noise and no-one to disturb you but you have to drive to get your shopping and attractions, but its very close by to all of these.
We did have a slight issue finding the place as driving in the dark was much harder to find a small "Heron Bay" sign post but the owner was easily contactable and happily able to help us in finding the place.
We would 100% be returning to this lodge for a weekend or longer stay and would definitely recommend you stay at these lodges, it wont disappoint. If you are into photography, enjoy scenery views or enjoy seeing a few deers appear at your back garden then you must give this place a try.
Le lodge est immense . 2 grandes chambres, 2 grandes SDB ( avec 2 baignoires et 2 douches!!) un grand salon avec poêle à bois... Une vue sur le loch et les montagnes... Super location.
Fort William is the Outdoor Capital of the UK, situated in Lochaber. There are many things to see and do including skiing, hill walking, cruising, mountain biking, fishing, an informative museum, great restaurants and live music in the bars. Gorgeous beaches at Arisaig just an hours drive away. Take the steam train to Mallaig in the summer months, or a cruise on Loch Linnhe to see the seals. There is a gondola taking you to the top of Aonach Mhor for magnificent views. Glenfinnan is 20 minutes away where the Bonnie Prince Charles monument stands at the head of Loch Sheil. where you can take a wildlife cruise and see Golden Eagles.
The world championship downhill mountain biking event is held at Lenachan every June, and the 6 day trials for trial bikes in May.
Glencoe is 30 minutes away for wonderful scenery and hillwalking. The National Trust for Scotland Glencoe gives an informative history of the geology of the area, as well as some history of the area. There is also a lovely museum in Glencoe and a nice walk around the Lochan.
Glen Nevis is a lovely place to walk and relax, and Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK is a challenging walk for those guests who are up for it.
