  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple who live in a very beautiful and fairly remote part of the Scottish Highlands. There are however bus and rail links. The nearest town is Fort William and to it there is a bus service twice daily.
    We have an old dog and a fine garden with lots of birds. We have a fish and vegetarian diet but have no other meat in the house apart from the dog's. The house is not far from Glenfinnan from where there are sailings on Loch Shiel with the likelihood of seeing eagles. There is a lot of traditional music locally and for those who are interested, a Steam Train runs between Fort William and Mallaig. The area is specially popular with climbers and hill walkers.
