The McIntosh family

In addition to Peter and Lesley's local knowledge Lesley's father is a retired member of Lochaber Mountain Rescue. A quick phone call will get the answer to any hill walking/climbing route questions you have.
All the attractively furnished bedrooms are fully equipped with en-suite facilities, colour TV/DVD, hospitality trays and a luxury range of soaps, shampoos and shower gels. Luxury continues with fabulous soft white bath sheets and towels with lots of other little touches.
Three twin rooms and four double rooms, sorry no family rooms and no children under 12 years of age.
The guest lounge
In this bright room you can quietly relax overlooking the south-facing garden, watch the native birds or flick through the selection of books and magazines. The patio doors lead you into the garden where you can sit and enjoy the sun.
For the evenings we have books, magazines, board games and of course satellite television for you to enjoy.
The pleasant dining room offers good home cooking prepared from traditional Scottish ingredients, locally sourced where possible. The breakfast menu offers a wide range of dishes including vegetarian options to set up guests for a full day's walking or touring in the Highlands.
The spacious and colourful garden offers an opportunity to wander beside the burn (stream) in the peaceful surroundings with a pleasant outlook to the distant hills of the Grey Corries and Aonach Mor. You can also sit under the shady arbour and unwind after your journey.
