Photos and Description of this 11 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Fort William - Mansion With Swimming Pool
Sleeps: 22, 11 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms
“With an indoor swimming pool, games room, gym and sauna, this popular Georgian Mansion on the scenic west coast entertains all ages, inside and out.”
Standing in six acres of mature grounds on the magnificent Ardgour peninsula, this stately Georgian mansion is the perfect location to explore the untouched landscape of the Scottish Highlands, with its breathtaking scenery set close to Loch Linnhe. Ideal for large gatherings of friends and family, this 'basic but comfortable' large holiday house, which would have an equivalent of a two star rating, proves to be ever popular with group after group.
Inside there are many rooms, as you would expect from a house this size, including at ground level, a sitting room, a snooker room with full size table, a games room with table tennis table, a fitness room, indoor heated swimming pool with sauna, kitchen and dining room. This large dining room provides seating for all twenty two guests and is perfect for fun evening feasts. The large drawing room with open fire is on the first floor and is the focal point for the group to gather and plan the day ahead. Whilst there is one twin bedroom on the ground floor, the rest of the accommodation can be found on the first and second floors. With its fading grandeur, it is a comfortable holiday house ideal for large groups, with the bonus of having an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, snooker room and games room offering entertainment for all weathers. In the summer months, there is a communal 9-hole pitch and putt available on the estate.
