We were delighted to find on our arrival firstly that the views are exactly as portrayed without standing on a chair to see. Really comfortable and has everything you need for an enjoyable and relaxing stay. It was only a 20 min. walk into Fort William and to get a boat trip on the loch. Would reccommend highly
We had a great week at Morvich Cottage. Despite wet weather, we were very cosy and comfortable. not an old, quaint cottage, but we still enjoyed it and the sitting room views over the Loch really are amazing - and settee is at right height to sit and enjoy it. the carpets felt new, really nice and thick underfoot (weirdly this is one of the first things we noticed!). it was nice and light (big windows). it had every mod con we needed including games/books/other thoughtful touches. there was plenty of space, eg with 2 bathrooms, so we all had the space we needed. there is a fairly main road right outside,ie below the paved patio, which i'd been concerned about, but actually it wasn't an issue. it was very quiet at night, and we were out most days. we didn't think much of Fort William itself, not a pretty place really, just a stunning setting by the loch and as the publicity goes, it was a convenient centre from which to explore the area: ie ben nevis area (recommend trip up by cable car!), and the Harry Potter Jacobean steam railway (which goes over the viaduct where the dementor attack took place!), Glencoe, Skye, etc. stunning area. we really appreciated the homely touches and the care by the owners in this cottage. it was about 20 min walk into the town. maybe they could make the outside patio more attractive, and move the bench onto the main paved area. we only found the bench round the left corner at the end of the week - but this isn't an issue. and how often is the weather good enough to sit outside very much anyway!? a lovely place to stay. I would recommend it.
We wanted to spend a week exploring the Highlands & chose Morvich Cottage for its location as well as the facilities/scenery...Wow we were not disappointed! The cottage itself was beautiful & felt like home the minute we arrived, there was nothing more we could have required for our stay. The views are exactly as advertised...Stunning! Fort William itself was just a short walk away, with Ben Nevis, Glencoe & other towns within easy commute. You wont be disappointed if you stay here!
We booked through Sykes and overall enjoyed our holiday but there were some quirks (self cater a lot) that meant haven't rated it excellent - arrival time when booked was stated as 3pm but on contacting to arrange key collection was told property only available from 3.30pm - drive/parking tricky and although could park two cars would require cars to be parked in particular order. - freezer in shed - cold on arrival as heating off bar one night storage heater. It took a day to warm up as uses night storage mainly - had to turn on water heating and fridge on arrival and asked to do this on departure too. Finally more could be made of outdoor space I.e. chairs, outdoor drying facilities etc. Overall would recommend especially as now quirks won't be a surprise.
thius cottage is all it says it is...wonderful views from the windows (when the clouds are not down), comfy accommodation all round , well equipped kitchen and even a place to sit outside (not very often possible with scottish weather). Great base for walking as we managed to leave the car behind on most days. Will want to visit again and again.
Plenty of space in the cottage for all 4 of us. The view from the front windows was amazing. We could lay in the double bed & look at the waterfalls coming down the mountain at the other side of the lock. We sat & played games in the sitting room, looking out at the loch & even saw a seal. The house had everything we needed, the kitchen was really well equipped too. An easy walk into the town with lots of choices of places to eat. Fort William is great as a base point to travel to Skye, Fort augustus, Glencoe, and the beautiful beaches on the road towards Mallaig.
