Fantastic stay in a gorgeous setting

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 nights staying in the Chapter House with our twin 8 year old daughters. The setting is absolutely stunning, driving up to the old Monastery is a big wow and the scenery looking over the Loch is just amazing. The apartment itself had everything we needed for some home cooking of breakfasts and dinners, unfortunately one of our daughters had tonsilitis whilst we were there so we were inside alot more than planned, but having such a big comfortable apartment made that alot easier on us all.

Having the games room and table tennis table was also a bonus for the children and they loved exploring the grounds, feeding the ducks and spotting rabbits from the swings in the park.

The location is excellent with good access to many sights and attractions. We finally got out to explore and drove to Ben Nevis where the girls got a chance to sledge on the mountain (we left the sledge in the apartment for future guests!). The drive up to Fort William was just stunning with some gorgeous views, I'd definitelty recommend it. We ate at both The Bothy and The Lock Inn, which were walking distance and good food, the Londis is well stocked for essentials and I can even say the local GP and pharmacy were fantastic and very helpful when my daughter needed antibiotics!

We took a boat trip with the local company based on the lock, a quick hour with some informative and amusing presentations from the crew!

Overall a fantastic stay and the kids are already asking when we can go back!
