A wonderful place to stay

5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at Hunters' Lodge. I don't think the pictures do it justice. It's very thoughtfully equipped and the beds are super comfy and there are delightful skylights giving you mountain views from the shower or the landing. The location is great, on the shores of the stunning Loch Linnhe. We had easy access to Glencoe, Oban and Fort William with some amazing walks. You need a car, but the Holly Tree hotel is only a half hour walk away. Don't let that put you off, the walk there is beautiful along the edge of the Loch. The food there is excellent and we had an unexpected bonus in that we were offered free use of their pool and sauna after eating dinner there. So, after a great walk along the West Highland Way, we stretched out in the pool and sauna. We experience good communication from the owner of the lodge and any small problems were addressed immediately. We would thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay. A visitor pack for the house would be helpful e.g. what day is bin day, where to recycle, walks from the lodge
