About the property

Former "Inn" and fortified house Listed for its Historic importance to the area

The Old Inn was built in 1735 and has been lovingly decorated and extended, to offer extremely comfortable accommodation for families and friends. This detached holiday home is set just off the main A82, where it has wonderful views of Loch Lochy. History books say General Wade once stayed here and Prince Charlie rested at this former Inn after landing in Scotland, making this property perfect for guests who love to soak up the history of their accommodation.

The location of The Old Inn provides an ideal base for guests looking to tour the Highlands, as there is easy access to the Isle of Skye, Fort William, Cairngorms, Loch Ness and Inverness. The area is renowned for its outdoor pursuits, breathtaking scenery and abundant wildlife. Travel on the West Highland Steam Train – known as The Jacobite, where you will head to Mallaig, crossing the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct, as depicted in the Harry Potter films. Alternatively, guests can visit unspoilt beaches, castles, museums and distilleries.

Boat trips to the inner isles are easily accessible, or cross on the Corran Ferry and explore the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. From Fort Augustus, you can hunt for the Loch Ness Monster, or just meander along the canalside, watching the boats navigate the locks. Nearest shop 6 miles, pub and restaurant 150 yards.

Loved everything about the Old Inn. Fantastic kitchen, made fires to enjoy meals by, slept very well. Location perfect for day trips to a Fort William, Isle of Skye area. Our stay was magical, would definitely book again, highly recommend. Met Mo on our departure, very kind gal! Thank you Tom for sharing your home!

Beautiful, spacious cottage with scenic views of Loch Lochy

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to this historic home. We were traveling with our two boys as well as two college age nieces. We were impressed by the immaculate interior and the spaciousness of the rooms. It was a great location for us to use as a home base for trips to Fort William as well as driving north to Invergarry, Loch Ness and Eilean Donan castle. The kitchen was wonderful and we cooked in two of the nights we stayed. Also we really appreciated having a washer and dryer to do laundry. We hope to visit again one day. Beautiful spot!
