Description from owner

Description

New to market May 2017.

Based on the accumulated success of our sister property 'Acorn Cottage', we are pleased to release 'Little Oaks' as our new dedicated self catering apartment.

A fully converted basement garden flat, Little Oaks has been specifically architect designed and fitted to offer comprehensive modern facilities for couples or single travellers.

Brand new rooms have been created to capture views on to the north face of Ben Nevis, with windows looking through major oak trees on to the vista beyond.

Bi-fold doors allow versatile use of the spacious kitchen and living area through to the bedroom, affording privacy or relaxed open plan living. A luxurious contemporary bathroom with large shower enclosure completes the layout, along with a walk in dressing room that provides guests with ample storage space.

With all new fixtures and fittings, we pride ourselves on providing the highest standard of accommodation, that allows our guests to relax in home comforts whilst enjoying the unspoilt beauty of the Highlands.

Facilities include dishwasher, hob, oven, microwave, fridge freezer, full central heating, wi-fi, access to washing machine.

Little Oaks is seven miles from Fort William, tucked away in the quiet hamlet of Muirshearlich. It offers the perfect base for exploring Lochaber and the surrounding areas such as Glencoe, Loch Ness, Isle of Skye and the West Coast. Whether you enjoy the white beaches of Morar Sands, sea kayaking around the idyllic seclusion of Arisaig, walking in the Munros, or high adrenaline pursuits of white water rafting in Ballachullish, Fort William - the outdoor capital of the UK has something to offer younger or older guests alike.

Take an unforgettable trip on the Jacobite steam train made famous in the Harry Potter films or take a short ferry crossing to Mull, Iona, Ardnamurchan or Skye. Spot eagles on Loch Shiel or try your hand at whale/dolphin watching near Oban. For more active visitors, the area is an outdoor enthusiasts paradise, with World Cup mountain biking, skiing/snowboarding and high ropes adventure only a short drive away.

Fort William boasts some of the most breath taking scenery in Scotland, with walking, climbing and cycling all year round. Walks are available to suit all abilities, whether it be the achievement of walking the Great Glen Way or summiting Ben Nevis, or strolling along the nearby Caledonian Canal tow path. Lochaber offers opportunities to scale Munros, or leisurely walk the areas many hundreds of miles of forestry and moorland tracks.

Enjoy a drink outside Little Oaks whilst watching the birds, you might even be lucky enough to see red squirrels visiting the feeders or a treecreeper spiralling the trunks of the ancient oaks.

Jays and Woodpeckers are regular visitors to the garden, along with deer in the colder months. If you enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Highlands, Little Oaks will give you the retreat to return to and the haven to relax in.

Little Oaks would not be suitable for guests with limited mobility due to steps from the parking area.

“Little Oaks -AFantastic Place to Stay”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2021

Little Oaks is very spacious and extremely comfortable, tastefully decorated to a high standard throughout. It has excellent amenities and the host is very friendly and helpful. It is set within large grounds of scattered oak and pine with an abundance of decorative shrubs,It is designed to maximise views of the hills including Ben Nevis. The location was perfect for us with walks on the Great Glen Way, the canal, Loch Lochy Hills,the Ben itself and many others. Fort William is very close as is the road to the isles. I would highly recommend this accommodation for a stay.

Response from the owner Thank you for taking the trouble to review your stay. We are really pleased you liked the accomodation and the area. We have tried to consider all those details that might be required when self catering and have maximised storage so Little Oaks feels spacious and there’s room to relax. The gardens are my passion, so it’s lovely to know they are appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you if you are in the Highlands again. Thank you.

Reviewed 16 Aug 2021

Little Oaks is furnished to a very high standard, spotlessly clean and in a nice quiet location (about 10 mins drive from Fort William). The regular visits by red squirrels and a wide variety of birds to the feeders in the garden kept us well entertained. Kate was always around for helpful advice on the area but not intrusive. A perfect base for Ben Nevis etc.

Response from the owner Thank you for taking the trouble to leave us a review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay & like us, were delighted by the antics of the red squirrels. I endeavour to keep standards high at Little Oaks, but it is always lovely to know it is appreciated. Hope to see you again if travels bring you this way. Thanks again

The perfect get-away, a place to relax and restore one's soul. A beautiful place to return to after a day of climbing, walking or exploring the area. I loved my stay in Little Oaks, it was a truly peaceful woodland setting and a perfect place to recuperate for both myself and my partner. Both of us will be back in the future and hopefully I'll see the red squirrels and the Pine Martin again when we return.

Response from the owner Thank you for your kind reflections. The woodland setting and wildlife are a joy to us too. We never tire of watching the squirrels, impromptu visits from pine martens and not to mention countless birds. I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay & look forward to meeting you again.
