Thank you for visiting the web site for Glencaig self catering holiday cottage, Fort
William. We hope we can convey here, and over the subsequent pages, all the information
you need about the cottage, its location and points of interest both local and within
reach in a short car journey.
The cottage is a purpose built self catering home on the family croft at Stronaba
about two and a half miles from Spean Bridge, twelve from Fort William, and a mile
from the famous Commando Memorial Statue. There is accommodation for a family of
four with one twin and one double bedroom. It is a modern, centrally heated, detached
bungalow and we have tried to think of everything you may need for your holiday
stay; whether you are a small walking or cycling group, family or couple.
Stronaba croft sits in an area of outstanding natural beauty and the view from the
cottage front window takes the eye across the croft fields to small hillocks beyond
and then to the tall Loch Lochy mountains. The entrance to Glean Cia-aig, a steep
sided valley above the Dark Mile can be seen as a low point in these distant mountains
and gives the cottage its name. It is a peaceful setting which appeals to many of
our guests who live and work in larger towns or cities.
Fort William and the wider Lochaber area are linked with some of the most significant,
and darkest points, in Scottish history.
It has some of the highest mountains , including Ben Nevis, and the access points
to some of our biggest wilderness areas. More recently skiing and mountain biking
at Nevis Range have become big attractions.
The area’s claim to the Outdoor Capital title is fitting and Glencaig Self Catering
Holiday Cottage is perfectly located to enjoy it all.
Traditionally self catering holiday accommodation bookings run weekly Saturday to
Saturday but we try to be flexible and normally can deal with, weekend spanning,
lets in low season.
Our web site continues to evolve. If you have a feature you consider worth adding
