About Chris Carver

my wife and myself have lived in the Highlands for 40 years. We are in our early 60's and run the farm, our self catering accommodation, 12 horses and torlundy trout fly fishing. We love the scenery here; looking at the snowcapped peaks of Ben Nevis every morning and having the farm, the horses and the space to ride,sail, walk and participate in the many activities that this area has to offer. There is a small fold of Highland cattle on the farm and 150 cheviot ewes to look after as well as the horses, so there is always something to do. Our 4 daughters come and go but have all fled the nest.

Chris Carver purchased this house in 2011

Why Chris Carver chose Fort William & Lochaber

We own a 500 acre farm up here and wished to expand our Holiday chalet business. As we had this superb plot amongst natural woodland with spectacular views of Ben Nevis we arranged for a local architect to design us a large holiday lodge that could sleep 8/10 people with an open plan living area and full glass sliding doors onto a patio.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy superb views from the comfort of a spacious living room with warm underfloor heating, sky t.v. and wifi and I love the feeling of space as the living area is open to the pine pannelled roof. You feel part of the great outdoors as the full glass windows to the south open onto a patio. The central wood burning stove gives an added feeling of warmth and comfort. The modern bathrooms are tastefully tiled and the kitchen is ideal for entertaining. It is also nice to know that this is an eco-lodge heated by ground source heat and solar panels.

Beautiful lodge just outside Fort William

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to Fort William. Lodge is big, clean and had everything we needed as a group of ten with lots of space to spare. Chris was very pleasant to deal with and the entire experience couldn't have been better.
