The Old Byre is a luxury self catering cottage for two near Fort William, converted from a traditional Highland croft byre (small stone house) that stood on this spot for well over 100 years.  Built, decorated and furnished by the owners, their skills and eye for detail and design are obvious as they have created a delightful, luxury self catering retreat in a quiet glen close to Fort William.


The single track road climbs above the town on the way to Blarmachfoldach. After twisting and winding through the glen the Old Byre becomes visible, sitting on a small knoll with lovely open views. You enter into the well equipped kitchen that is open plan with the spacious living room that has under floor heating and also an open fire that will keep you extra cosy.


The Old Byre self catering cottage  is the perfect place to explore all that the area has to offer, in a quiet location with lovely views and yet only a short distance from Fort William.


There is so much to see and do in this area of the Highlands of Scotland:

Fluffy bathrobes, luxury toiletries, rolltop bath, real log fire and underfloor heating make this cosy cottage a real escape from the city for two. Our stone-built cottage comprises open-plan living room, kitchen and ensuite bedroom with bath and shower.


The bedroom is lovely with a large king bed and custom built clothes storage.


We have thought of everything you might need to make your stay comfortable and practical: washer, tumble-dryer, dishwasher, a fully fitted kitchen, all bed linen and towels.

Free WiFi is available or we can turn it off if you would like to get away from it all!


Natural, exposed heavy roof timbers and cedar panelling make a beautiful feature of the cottage. It has tiled floors and cosy rugs, quality leather sofa to snuggle into by the log fire.


Located about 10 minutes from Fort William town centre with wonderful views amongst the surrounding hills, The Old Byre has its rightful place at Blarmachfoldach. This Highland glen leads to Loch Lundavra with great views of Ben Nevis and of course fishing. Walkers are spoiled for choice straight out of the front door.


For a romantic get-away or undisturbed, simple peace and quiet, The Old Byre self catering cottage awaits, just a phone call away..
