A warm welcome awaits you at 'Nevis View' which is situated on a quiet estate of 24 houses, just off the 'Road to the Isles'. We are not far from Loch Linnhe and the entrance to the Caledonian Canal.
A warm welcome awaits you at 'Nevis View', which provides an excellent base from which to explore the local and wider area.
'Nevis View' is 4.5 miles by road from the centre of Fort William (the Outdoor Capital of the U.K.) and lies within the village of Corpach, on the A830, 'The Road to the Isles'. It is within five minutes walk of the nearest bus stop and ten minutes from the railway station. We always have the current local and long-distance rail and bus timetables along with the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry timetable for guests to refer to, should they need or want to use these forms of transport. Car Parking is on the road, by the house. Bicycles can be stored overnight in a securely locked cellar.
In Corpach, there is an ATM available on the outside wall of the Co-op Supermarket, which is open from 06.30 until 23.00 every day, with a Post Office inside the premises. There is a Hotel, a Bar offering a varied weekly programme of entertainment and an award-winning mineral and crystal exhibition 'Treasures of the Earth'. The southern entrance to the Caledonian Canal lies in Corpach and 'Neptune's Staircase' a flight of 7 locks on this Canal, is close by. The extremely popular Jacobite Steam Train, which featured in the Harry Potter films, passes through Corpach station almost every day from mid-May until the end of Oct. Nevis Range, 7.5 miles away, offers Skiing and Snow Boarding in winter, Downhill and Cross-Country Mountain Biking and a High Wire Adventure Course in summer. The gondola is open all-year round, but the running of all activities, including the gondola, is subject to weather conditions. Canoe and bike hire is available locally, as are sailing and kayaking courses. A wide range of winter and summer mountain activities and courses are also provided locally.
'Nevis View' is situated within a quiet estate of 24 houses lying just off the A830, 'The Road to the Isles'. The architect-designed houses, whose living rooms all face south, were built in the early 60s and are of an unusual design, which won many architectural awards when first built. The house gives visitors approaching it from the road, the impression that it is rather small - only a single storey high. However, the bedroom area is a full two storeys high, though this is split-level within the rest of the house. A glance at houses across the road, shows what is hidden from the approaching visitor's view and what the rest of the house is truly like. Once inside, many guests have commented on how much more spacious the interior is than they initially thought it was going to be! The bedrooms either look onto the mountains (Ben Nevis / Glen Nevis) or onto the large garden, the loch and the hills beyond the southern shore of Loch Linnhe.
Having lived in the area for over 45 years, we have an extensive knowledge of Fort William and Lochaber, however, we don't pretend to know everything! Guests are welcome to test our local knowledge in order to help plan their days' activities, whatever their interests, and we're prepared to find the answer to any question we don't have the answer to. We enjoy skiing, climbing, hill-walking and diving and can give information and advice to our guests regarding these sports, or we can easily find someone who can, if we can't. A Drying Room is available for drying wet clothes overnight.
In the last few years, ‘Nevis View’ has been extensively refurbished. Both bedrooms have been redecorated and the furniture, furnishings and carpets replaced and upgraded. The (shared) Shower Room has also been modernised. Broadband is free and available in each bedroom which also has a colour t.v., a clock/radio and tea/coffee making facilities. Both the Single Room and Family Room are compact and lie adjacent to each other. The Family Room can accommodate up to three people and can be let either as a Triple, a Double or a Twin.
Evening Meals (two courses - either a Starter and Main or a Main and Dessert served with tea / coffee) and Packed Lunches are available. These require 48 hours advance notice. We are Vegetarians, but can, and do, cater for Vegans and the more usual meat-eaters. We prefer to be advised in advance if there are any dislikes and / or special dietary requirements needed by our guests.
