Sky Lodge 16

Inverness-shire, Highland, Scotland

Sky Lodge From £1887 Availability

If you are looking for a large holiday house in the Outdoor Capital of Scotland, then this beautiful lodge with clear views of Ben Nevis is ideal. Great lodge, great location.

A hugely popular private mansion, commonly referred to by the Scottish as a ‘Fishing Lodge’, this spacious, holiday home can very comfortably accommodate three or four families. Built in 1870 for landed gentry wishing to fish the River Lochy, over the century this old family home has welcomed guests from all walks of life, including royalty.  Edward & Mrs Simpson enjoyed some respite on this private estate far from the public eye in 1935.  

Several years ago this large holiday home undertook a fairly major renovation and restoration programme, the photos of which are on display for guests in a leather bound album on the hall table. It’s a tribute to the current family the amount of work put into these improvements, though with a property of this size and calibre, maintenance is an ongoing project. This Victorian Grand Dame was thus transformed into a bright, modern holiday home meeting the needs of the 21st Century traveller without losing the charm of its historic roots.

The property remains to all intents and purposes a fishing lodge, insofar as groups continue to take a beat on the River Lochy in pursuit of salmon and trout.  However, its location has become just as attractive to other groups looking to enjoy a general holiday on the West Coast for walking and other activities.

Overall this property is a charming, spacious, nicely furnished holiday home. Smart where it counts, less so where it doesn't.  It has a comfortable, relaxed feel and would be perfect for three generational familities or groups of friends looking for a bit of 'space' to unwind and enjoy each others company both indoors and out.

Sky Lodge is a beautiful Victorian self-catering lodge set within five acres of private land in Torlundy, Fort William, amidst the stunning Inverness-shire countryside on the western coast of Scotland. The house has currently undergone an extensive refurbishment programme, which now offers a luxurious experience in a tranquil setting. You might see the occasional tall ship pass on the canal that runs parallel to the river, which always creates a bit of excitement.  For those interested in marine history, 'Neptune's Staircase' at Banavie near Fort William is worth visiting.  On sunny days you can walk up the canal (young and old alike) tracing its steps up to the top lock followed by a drink or snack in the nearby café.  The River Lochy
You can walk to the river from the front terrace, down some steps and through a mixture of wild bracken, fern and overgrown vegetation.  Dogs are asked to be kept on a lead or at least under control in case you come across livestock. The river is fast flowing and quite dangerous in areas, so absolutely not suitable for swimming. It's a lovely walk though right along the shoreline which in some places has formed rocky beaches.  You'll pass one or two small wooden huts (bothys) along the way and are asked to be mindful of the fishermen who may be down on the banks, hoping to catch some salmon or trout. If you'd like to try a spot of fly fishing yourself let us know and we'll put you in touch with the relevant people. You can walk a decent circuit from the house, along the river bank, up through the paddock onto the open moorland running either side of the single lane track back to the house. Getting There
Located 6 miles from Fort William, it's an easy drive to and from town. Your nearest supermarket and other major shops would also be Fort William which is likely to cater for most of your needs. Local Activities
With spectacular beaches and sheltered coastlines, forests and mountains, lochs and glens, the Inverness-shire landscape is a great place to get out and enjoy yourself, be it walking, skiing, playing golf or simply appreciating the view.
