Waterfront Property with kitchen and fireplace
Burnside Lodge is a beautiful chalet on the banks of the river Lundy, 3 miles from Fort William and 3 miles from the ski resort of Nevis Range.
Set in garden grounds in the small hamlet of ‘Happy Valley’, a rural location on the outskirts of town.
The chalet is on one level, easy entry from the car park onto a decked area with barbecue, outdoor seating and covered eating area overlooking the river.
On entering the chalet into an open plan living, dining kitchen area the triple aspect room has a log burner for those chillier nights and sky tv.
The kitchen is well equipped with all the appliances you will need for your break, oven, hob, microwave, dish washer, washer/dryer, fridge, freezer,etc.
One bedroom, with views to Ben Nevis and surrounding area, has a king size bed and is ensuite with a power shower.

From the deck you may on rare occasions see a selection of wildlife, deer, otters, mink and always varied amounts of birds from woodpeckers to sparrows. ‘Resident’ mallard ducks are on the river bank daily.
From the chalet you can go hiking through the forest trails or the ‘Ben’ if your feeling energetic. There is a cycle path into town from the top of our road and also up to Nevis Mountain Range where there are numerous bike tracks and a high wire adventure park. Nevis Range has two restaurants one at base station and one accessed by a mountain gondola which give for great views on a clear day.

The 18 hole golf course is a mile away and has a club house for a wee dram if you feel like dropping in!
The prestigious Inverlochy Castle Hotel is a short walk away for that special meal if you’d like.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Burnside
A delightful holiday property in an amazing location. We even saw the top of Ben Nevis from our bedroom window. Very tranquil and peaceful. Very clean, finished to a very high standard. The host was very welcoming and helpful and communication prior to arrival was very good.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic place to stay!!
We had a wonderful stay at the Burnside Lodge. It was extremely clean, well kept, and equipped with everything you may need. Beds were comfortable, and the river that runs in front of the front door was a joy to listen to. You’ll want to stay beyond your booking.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely spot for a break
This lovely cottage was well equipped and beautifully maintained. There was plenty of room for our family of four and it was quiet and comfortable. Small deck overlooking stream. Lynore was on-site if required (but not intrusive). A short drive into Fort William and easy shopping and dining options. Would definitely stay again.
