Despite a really wet weekend we have had a great time at the Nevis Centre 10 pin bowling and on the Harry Potter train. This has been the perfect base camp! - Family R, Australia October 2017


We'd a great 5 nights in Nevis Croft - clean, comfortable & great location for Ben Nevis & town centre. All arrangements super-easy to make thanks to Frances! Wine and shortbread was a really nice touch & much appreciated- thanks again!- Mr S, Belfast September 2017


Tausend Dank für die tolle Zeit in eurem wunderschönen Ferienhäuschen! Wir haben unseren Urlaub hier sehr genossen, werden es weiterempfehlen und kommen gerne wieder! Thanks for everything!!!! - Family V, Germany August 2017


Thank you for your hospitality in all three cottages that our family has been occupying. We have all had a lovely family time and had all we needed. Lots of exploring done! 3 adults and 5 children climbed Ben Nevis. Thank you. - Family R, Lancashire August 2017


Thank you so much for your hospitality, as well as giving us a space where we could relax and be together as a family. We really felt at ease right from the beginning thanks to wine, shortbread and even hiking maps! You were always within reach when needed, thank you. - Family S, Switzerland August 2017


Had an excellent holiday here in Fort William. Would recommend a trip to Oban and Fort Augustus, also really enjoyed Glenfinnan and Nevis Range. Been plenty to see and do with stunning scenery. Accommodation at Nevis Croft was excellent, very comfortable and clean. Perfect for a week's stay. Hopefully may return at some point in the future. - Family D, Aberdeenshire August 2017


Very comfortable and well presented - had a pleasant two days. - Family A, Australia July 2017


Comfortable cottage - well equipped kitchen. great base for climbing the Ben and exploring the West Highlands. The Crannog Restaurant is excellent as is the Cornerstone at Mallaig. - Mr & Mrs P, Merseyside July 2017


We felt really at home in this comfortable accommodation, wine and shortbread as a warm welcome at the table. It was lovely to be back in Fort William 20 years after finishing the West Higland Way and to drink a good beer at the Ben Nevis Inn, which was just a simple bunkhouse at that time, accompanied by our 4 sons. We loved climbing the Ben Nevis, visiting the museum, watching cute seals in the loch and eating good food in several restaurants etc etc. Thank you for your hospitality and quick communication before and during our stay in Scotland. - Family D, The Netherlands July 2017


We had a great time here at your cottage and enjoyed it very much. We even hiked Ben Nevis in sunshine!- Family L, Germany July 2017


Wonderful week made ideal by your comfortable and convenient accommodation. Thanks very much. - Family B, Dumfries & Galloway July 2017


Very comfortable accommodation in a great position and you laid on good days for us just when they were wanted. I was encouraged to the top sixty years after my first ascent. You will be recommended to our friends. - Family B, Warwickshire July 2017


Excellent location. Thanks for the wine and shortbread. Cottage was perfect for our needs. We had a good time and we'd come again. - Family H, Ayrshire June 2017


It's our second visit to Nevis Croft Cottages.Lovely well-equipped cottage & spacious. We've had an enjoyable time - most days dry with showers - only one walk in rain! We climbed Ben Nevis on a warm day - carried our coats and had wonderful views from the top! We also walked to the waterfall, the hidden valley in Glen Coe, climbed Glenfinnan monument and went on the Jacobite Steam Train. Thank you. - Mr & Mrs T, Wales June 2017


We have enjoyed our stay in Cottage No. 1. It was well equipped, comfortable and spacious. Just as well we came prepared as we only had one dry day during our stay but this was enough to make an assault on Ben Nevis. The wine and shortbread were much appreciated too. - Mr & Mrs P, Devon June 2017


Had a wonderful week with lots of lovely weather Had much fun with our friends who came along with us; went up Ben Nevis, saw the Downhill World Cup practice runs. The house was lovely and it's a good place to get to anywhere. Thank you very much! - Family M, Manchester May 2017


This is our 2nd stay in Cottage 1, and we love it. It is a home away from home, with everything you need. Great base to explore surrounding area. Wine and shortbread went down a treat, thank you. We will be back. - Mr & Mrs L, Dundee March 2017


Excellent base for work and holiday time with family. Clean, warm and easy to live in for a 'working holiday'. Shower is fantastic! - Family W, N. Wales February 2017


Lovely place, great location and we would love to stay here again. Kids loved the Christmas tree and chocolates. - Family C, Australia December 2016


Back yet again. Superb as always. Spotlessly clean. Extremely well equipped cottage in lovely location. Bit of a 'busman's holiday' for me, but I'll be back. Many thanks. Nevis 9 times - is that enough? - Mr S, Norfolk November 2016


Thank you for a lovely stay. We've had a very nice short break and been very lucky with the weather! The mountains are fabulous and we've found lots to do with the kids. We highly recommend the High Wire activity up at Nevis Range. - Mr & Mrs M, Northamptonshire October 2016


Fantastic location to explore the area. House well equipped, comfortable & warm. Despite being so late in the season, the weather has been brilliant. Must do's include: climbing Glenfinnan Monument, trip to Mallaig, Crafts & Things in Glencoe, Slate Quarry in Ballachulish, Neptune's Staircase. We didn't attempt Ben Nevis, but maybe next time :). - Mr & Mrs D, Angus October 2016


Nice comfortable cottage to return to after a day's walking - especially as the weather wasn't too good. - Mr & Mrs G, Germany September 2016


Appreciated the early suitcase drop off. Thanks for a good holiday. - Mr & Mrs C, Dorset September 2016


Had a wonderful stay in the cottage and the Highlands. The cottage was perfectly appointed for our family and our five year old particularly appreciated the DVDs on the couple of wet days we had here! Hope to come back again - hopefully in better weather! - Family F, Australia September 2016


Ideal house for a family break and great location for exploring. - Family T, North Wales September 2016


We have been very comfortable here - thank you! Our holiday has been restful as well as enjoying this glorious part of the west coast. - Mr & Mrs M, Ayrshire August 2016


Thank you for a great stay. The wine and shortbread were wonderful after a 12 hour journey from London! The facilities in the cottage were perfect, and it's a great base for exploring this beautiful part of the world - hopefully we'll be back at some stage in the future. - Family N, Berkshire August 2016


This is our 2nd visit to Nevis Croft cottages. 3 years ago as a family of 4 but this time due to work, just myself and youngest son. Cottage was the same high standard as before - one of the best we've stayed in over the years. Weather was wonderful (most of the time) so we've had lots of fun. Visit to Ardnamurchan Point and Lighthouse , via Corran ferry - if you love driving this is the road for you! Nevis Range Gondola then a walk in the forest using the walking map. Could have been the only people there. Beautiful!! Deep fried haggis eaten and enjoyed. Can't wait for our 3rd visit. Thank you. - Family M, Cheshire August 2016


Perfect location. We had a wonderful time in your cottage. The weather was awesome and we went to Eilean Donan and Glen Coe. Thank you for the wine. This is a place we'd like to come back one of these years. Thanks again. - Family H, France August 2016


Thank you for a wonderful stay on our first visit to Scotland. Although the first few days were a 'bit' wet, we managed to get used to it. The surroundings are lovely. The house is wonderful and spotlessly clean at arrival. - Family B, Netherlands August 2016


Our first holiday in Scotland has been great. Nice cottage - all we need - great place. We have enjoyed the local walks to Cow Hill, waterfalls. Went to Mull - Isle of Skye and Inverness. Thanks for the wine and shortbread. Fort William is a really nice place to visit and we will recommend your cottage, everything perfect, thank you. - Family J, Denmark August 2016


Lovely cottage, well equipped & clean. We've had a fabulous stay. The scenery is breathtaking. We managed to conquer the big one - Ben Nevis, so proud of ourselves. Thank you so much for wine and biscuits. We can recommend the Jacobite steam train to Mallaig - it was fantastic. Thanks once again. - Mr & Mrs H, South Yorkshire July 2016


Brilliant location. Cottage perfect for our needs. We managed to climb Ben Nevis on a lovely sunny day. Thank you for the wine and shortbread. We would highly recommend the cottage. - Family D, South Yorkshire July 2016


As previous guests have said, thank you for the wine and shortbread- a lovely thought. We were only here for a few days, but had such wet weather which meant that views were obscured! If you leave the cottage and turn right, after a short distance you will find a trail to Ben Nevis. Only managed a bit one evening, but interesting to discover previous curling ponds. - Family H, Australia July 2016


Clean, comfortable and warm. A super location for the boys to climb Ben Nevis. Easy walk to town too. Many thanks for the shortbread and wine, much appreciated, thank you. - Family D, N. Ireland July 2016


Fantastic location and a great place for a family to stay. Thank you. - Family P, Western Australia July 2016


Lovely cottage, nice and warm. Kids loved staying here. Nice touch of the wine and shortbread. Thanks. - Family H, Aberdeenshire July 2016


We have really enjoyed our few days here. The house is very welcoming and comfortable. Four of our party climbed Ben Nevis. Even though there was rainy cloudy weather, we really enjoyed the brief sunny period at the Steall Falls. - Family H, Yukon July 2016


A lovely comfortable cottage in the perfect location. Many thanks for a great week (despite the weather!). The wine and shortbread was also very welcome! Thank you. - Mr & Mrs C, Midlands June 2016

Thank you for another lovely stay and for the champagne. Was lovely having our honeymoon here. Thanks for the wine and shortbread. - Mr & Mrs C, Yorkshire April 2016


On 24/4/10 I made an entry in the book to say how much we had enjoyed being here. Today is our last day of this visit - on which we brought our daughters, their husbands and our 5 grandchildren. We booked out the three units and have been as happy and impressed as we were six years ago! Thank you for living up to our memories, and helping us to create some more, very special ones. For our 'children' and grandchildren, it was their first experience of snow and they truly loved it - and have been grateful to come back to warm, well equipped units! Our thanks once more. - Mr & Mrs R, Australia April 2016


Thank you for the lovely stay at your cottage. We felt very comfortable and welcome. Definitely worth coming back. We had a great time. Thanks a lot! - Mr & Mrs R, Switzerland March 2016

Thank you very much for your fantastic accommodation. I look forward to staying again soon. - Mr R, Gloucestershire January 2016


Another comfortable stay in this cosy cottage. Thanks for the wine and shortbread and the new TV. See you next year. - Mr F, Merseyside November 2015


Why go abroad when you can have a picnic on the beach at Arisaig on 1st November! Lovely cottage, well equipped. The shortbread & wine were much appreciated. Some more Munroes completed. - Family O, Tyne & Wear November 2015


We had a lovely time. This is the perfect location for us. Kids had a great time and loved sharing a room. Wine and bisciuts very gratefully received. Thank you. - Family F, Inverness-shire October 2015


Lovely, comfortable cottage in a fantastic area. We would love to come back. Many thanks for the wine and shortbread. - Family T, Cornwall October 2015


Great cottage in a terrific location - and Frances is a very friendly and helpful host. We had a wonderful week of walking and would happily come again - Mr D, East Sussex September2015


We would highly recommend this property, it has everything you need for a comfortable holiday away from home, incl the bonus of two W.C.'s. The lovely welcoming gift of shortbread and wine made us feel at home right from the start. We had the pleasure of meeting Frances and Alan who were a lovely couple and provided us with lots of local knowledge to head us in the right direction. Great location and handy to the town centre but far enough away from the busier roads. A wonderful experience and we hope to come back one day. - Family T, Australia September 2015


Thank you for a relaxing holiday - lovely cottage - wish we could stay longer! Breathtaking scenery. Thanks for the shortbread - much enjoyed. - Family R, Australia September 2015


Our second stay here but this time with the whole family. A lovely and very strategic location with speedy and easy access to all that you may wish to do. We hope to come back again soon! - Family H, Kent August 2015


One of the best cottages ever. Had an awesome time here and this cottage made the trip more memorable. Thank you so much for the wine and shortbread. We will definitely come back every year. - Family U, Middlesex August 2015


Great holiday. Superb location and lovely accommodation. Ideal base from which to undertake all the outdoor activities and enjoy the stunning scenery. Thanks very much! - Family W, Hants August 2015


We have had a great week in your lovely cottage. We arrived by train and found there is plenty to explore by foot or train then walking. Would highly recommend train ride over to Mallaig - beautiful scenery on the way. We went once on the Jacobite and then yesterday caught lunchtime train out to spend afternoon walking around Glenfinnan (really useful trail map at station museum), including standing in rain with people from various nationalities to wait for the Jacobite train to come over viaduct as in the scene from Harry Potter. Walked one day up Great Glen Way and another day along West Highland Way - turning right from cottage, Braveheart car park is 15 minutes walk and lots of Forestry Commission trails from there. Fantastic tasty and great value breakfasts at the Highland Centre just down road - a good way to get teenagers out of the house on a rainy morning! - Family H, Oxfordshire August 2015


A really lovely comfortable cottage. This was our first visit to Scotland. We loved it - the views at Glencoe are breathtaking and the lochs are just beautiful - we can't wait to come back. - Mr & Mrs H, Birmingham August 2015


Superb location, wonderful property. To paraphrase a certain someone "We'll be back..." - Family H, Merseyside August 2015


Lovely stay and thank you very much for the shortbread and wine! :) - Family R, Norfolk August 2015


A lovely property - plenty of equipment for cooking. Lovely to have extras e.g. washing liquid, soap in bathrooms & towels. Very clean. We loved your water pressure. Thank you for wine and shortbread. An excellent find. - Mr & Mrs J, Lancashire July 2015


Thank you for the shortbread & wine - a lovely gesture. We've had a lovely time in Fort William. Nevis Croft is a cosy, central and well-appointed cottage. Everything was just great - many thanks. Will recommend Nevis Croft to family & friends & hope to return again. - Family S, Aberdeenshire July 2015


We had a wonderful family fortnight. Weather never bad for long - some wonderful walks Ben & Glen Nevis. Swimming: polar bears at Kingussie and children at local pool & Morar. Excellent food at the 'Ben Nevis'. Great welcome at Baptist church on Sunday. Scottish people friendly everywhere. - Family M, Norfolk June 2015


We have spent a lovely time in Fort William despite the weather. First time in Scotland for my brother and his wife, certainly not the last time in Lochaber for David and me.The cottage was really great and a perfect location to go back and forth to town centre. The shortbread and wine were a nice surprise that we appreciated. Thank you. - Family F, France June 2015


Beautifully clean and comfortable cottage! Great location - didn't have a long way to go after trekking up Ben Nevis. Cottage had everything we needed - great space for families. Thank you very much for the welcome gifts. - Family Y, Lancs, May 2015


Enjoyed our stay. Lovely comfortable cottage. Though weather very wet at beginning of week, managed two good days walking in Glencoe and Aonach Mor. Many thanks for wine and shortbread.- Mr & Mrs G, W Yorks May 2015


Good holiday at the SSDT. Thank you for the hospitality and great location for our stay.- Family A, N Yorks May 2015


Thank you for making this cottage so comfortable, just like home! Lovely time in Fort William - will come back again so we can see something on top of Ben!.- Mr & Mrs T, Wales April 2015


We had a very good week staying here and achieved all of our aims, including a successful assault on Ben Nevis. Full winter conditions after 600 metres in spite of which we made it all the way to the Trig point cairn at the top. An excellent base of operations from which to mount our daily forays into the heart of Lochaber. Who would not want to stay here rather than anywhere else? The welcome gifts waiting on arrival were a very pleasant and unexpected surprise.- Mr & Mrs H, Kent April 2015


Really nice stay. Lovely and clean and tidy.- Family H, Devon March 2015


Lovely stay; only the cloud over the eclipse let us down!- Mr & Mrs S, Isle of Wight March 2015


Thank you for a relaxing stay at your cottage. Really enjoyed our first trip to Scotland. The wine and shortbread was yummy and the shower was really good.- Mr & Mrs F, Yorkshire March 2015


Really enjoyed our stay. Nice and clean. Well equipped and in an ideal touring spot. Thank you for our welcome gifts.- Family P, Wirral February 2015


Thank you Frances and Alan for arranging our stay at your cottage. It was fully equipped so that we immediately felt at home. This also was a perfect location for exploring the outdoor beauty of Fort William, especially the amazing mountains, and just near to the town centre. We enjoyed the wine and shortbread. It was very nice, all thanks to you. We would highly recommend your cottage.- Family L, Colchester January 2015


First stay at Nevis Croft for a family and friends birthdays celebration in Cottages 2 & 3. Owners very helpful and welcoming, providing baby cots and baby chairs for two children. Nice and close for jaunts into Fort William and up Glen Nevis for a lovely walk to Steall Waterfall. Older children and adults loved crossing the wire rope bridge! Would come again. - Family W, Dumfries and Galloway January 2015


Sixth stay at this warm and cosy cottage. Thank you Frances and Alan for an enjoyable stay and the wine and shortbread - it really is a nice touch and much appreciated. Staying here on our trip back from our annual autumn holiday in Ullapool makes it less painful and really is preferable to staying in a hotel. Oh.. and thanks for the fantastic TV. - Mr F, Liverpool November 2014


Thank you for making our first week in Scotland such a pleasure. Quiet, clean & well appointed. You are blessed in living in such a beautiful part of the world. - Mr & Mrs D, Australia Sept 2014


First time in Scotland. A good week and great weather. Nice quiet place to stay - thank you - Mr D, Belfast September 2014


Third visit to these cottages and again we had a fantastic time. Thank you. - Family B, Derbyshire Sept 2014


This was the perfect cottage for our holiday - very clean, good location, very well equipped and lovely, friendly owners. Would highly recommend to others. Days out we would recommend: - going up the gondolas and snow tubing at the top (although food at cafe was expensive and disappointing) - Neptune's Staircase and a drink at the Moorings Hotel, - Glenfinnan(climbing the monument and watching train on viaduct), - Camusdarach beach near Morar and Mallaig (this is stunning!) - Tobermory (we got the ferry from Kilchoan - much cheaper than Oban ferries and a lovely drive to Kilchoan), - Sanna Sands (hard to believe this is a beach in Scotland - beautiful). There is also a fantastic public park in the grounds of the leisure centre just along the road from the cottage. We hope to be back again soon. Thanks so much! - Family P, Corbridge August 2014


Thank you for a great stay in your comfortable, well equipped cottage. Weather was mixed but did not stop our days out to Mallaig, Oban, Caledonian Canal. We enjoyed our climb to the Hidden Valley and walk to Steall Gorge and Waterfall. My husband and eldest son climbed Ben Nevis whilst myself & the youngest went up in the gondolas. Fantastic week! Thank you for the hospitality - Family S, Yorkshire August 2014


Great cottage, very spacious and modern. Everything we needed was there. Thank you for the wine and shortbread - much appreciated. We would particularly recommend Glenfinnan - monument & station, the motorboats on a warm day on the Caledonian Canal, trip to Mull to see Tobermory - Skye - but you need 2 days to see the many wonderful geological features. We ate at the Alexandra - great food but very hot on the day we went. The Crofters Bar- good deals but few puddings. - Family D, Sheffield August 2014


We had a perfect stay in your wonderful cottage. This house and fantastic warm weather are an excellent basis to discover the Highlands. Thank you so much for wine and shortbread. - Mr & Mrs B, Germany July 2014


Fantastic accommodation, friendly Scots and glorious weather! Visits to Mallaig, Glen Nevis, Plockton etc wonderful. Will recommend all this to friends. A big thank you! - Mr & Mrs W, Lancashire July 2014


Great to be back in the West Highlands. Thank you for the hospitality wine & shortbread - nice touch. Very thoughtful. Great location for town etc. Smashing accommodation. Will recommend. Slainte. - Family F, Fife July 2014


Thank you for a lovely week in your cottage. It's been wonderful. Also thanks for the information about Arisaig - it was beautiful and we had the best coffee in a little cafe there! Had a great day to Oban via the Scottish Sealife Sanctuary - would totally recommend it! - Family McR, New Zealand June 2014


Thank you for a great stay. Your weather has been very kind to us whilst in Scotland. We've had a great trip to Isle of Skye, had a real good look at Fort William, and will be quite sorry to leave. Thank you for a great stay in your lovely cottage, also for the wine and shortbread. - Family M, New Zealand June 2014


A very spacious & comfortable & well-equipped cottage, more than we could have hoped for. Weather fantastic during our stay, so out and about every day. Would love to return here in the future. - Family C, Stourbridge May 2014


Thank you so much for our stay in your beautiful, well equipped cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. - Mrs B, Skegness May 2014


Our 5th short stay at this cosy cottage with its great homely feel. Thanks for providing such a good, comfortable, relaxing holiday home. We shall return! - Mr F, Merseyside Nov 2013


Great place to stay!! The next time we visit Scotland, we'll try to stay here. - Family S, Holland Oct 2013


Another lovely stay (3rd time). Lucky with the weather as well. Back again - Mr & Mrs G, Wirral Sept 2013


Had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage, thanks for all the 'extras'; made it feel 'home from home. Great scenery and we even saw a stag at the back of the cottage! - Family G, Kent Sept 2013


What a wonderful holiday home-from-home. Perfectly situated to explore the glorious surroundings and spotlessly cleaned when we arrived. Lovely and cosy while watching the world go by in the rain! Also, keep an eye out for the red deer on the bank behind the house. have seen them 3 times this week! Hope to return again. - Family L, Nottinghamshire Aug 2013


We were delightfully surprised with the cottage, the website doesn't do it justice!! Weather a bit mixed, ate out at Browns a couple of times - excellent food and surroundings only 2 mins away, go early or book! Will definitely recommend here to family and friends, spotlessly cleaned and fully equipped. Be back soon. - Family N, Angus Aug 2013


A lovely, clean, well-equipped cottage. We will return - Family M, Cheshire Aug 2013


Excellent location & well appointed, clean accommodation - we've had a brilliant time & would certainly recommend this area & cottage - Mr & Mrs H, Warwickshire June 2013


Thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful cottage, and this lovely country. Our first time here in the UK. Fort William has been a good base for us to explore this region - the Jacobite, Skye, Mull, Iona and Staffa.- Mr & Mrs R, Australia May 2013


A lovely well equipped cottage and well placed to explore the west of Scotland. The views at this time of year are spectacular. Recommend the walks around Glen Nevis for the family. There is also a lot to explore on a trip to Mallaig.- Family C. Derbyshire Oct 2012


Second time in this cottage. Still as comfortable. probably see you next year - Mrs B, Lancashire Sept 2012


The cottage is lovely, beautifully clean and very comfortable - Mrs D, Suffolk August 2012
