About Otterbank

Otterbank is a cosy waterfront log cabin on the shore of Loch Linnhe just a short drive from Fort William. Sleeping four people in two fantastic ensuite super-king size bedrooms, it is perfect for couples, friends or families alike. The handcrafted wooden cabin has a wood burning stove for cosy nights in as well as a large deck where guests can enjoy gazing across the loch to the majestic mountains and spectacular Highland scenery.

Outdoor enthusiasts will be in their element as they explore the lochs and mountains surrounding Fort William. Ben Nevis, Britains highest mountain, is close by for any keen hikers. The Nevis mountain range is also popular with mountain bikers with a huge number of challenging bike trails ranging from cross country rides to world-class downhill tracks. With rock climbing, canyoning, abseiling and even ski-ing also on offer, there is plenty to keep adventure seekers busy here!

It doesn't need to be all about the mountains when you stay at Otterbank. The numerous lakes, lochs and rivers means it is easy to swap your hiking boots for a wetsuit and dive in at the deep end and enjoy the different watersports activities on offer. There are plenty of wild swimming opportunities for hardy souls or try and catch a salmon or brown trout for dinner on one of the nearby fishing rivers. You are also welcome to bring your own kayaks or paddleboard to explore Loch Linnhe before returning for a waterside sundowner and barbecue as you soak up the stunning scenery from the deck of your log cabin.

Fort William has an excellent range of restaurants, cafes, shops and equipment hire, making it easy to find everything you need for a self-catering holiday. Any whiskey lovers shouldn't miss a trip to the Ben Nevis distillery or if you want to find out more about the fascinating history of the area, the West Highland Museum is definitely worth a visit. If you want to head further afield, the scenic drive along the shores of Loch Linnhe to Oban, just an hour away, is a lovely day out. From here you can also take a day drip to one of the surrounding islands.

Otterbank is one of two fantastic cabins situated on this private family croft. Guests can book both log cabins together to sleep up to 8 people. Please see their website for further details.

Accommodation Comprises:

Otterbank is a traditional waterside wooden cabin in the heart of the Highlands. Designed by the owner, it is beautifully finished both inside and out.

  • Large windows on the front of the cabin are perfect for admiring the gorgeous views over the loch to Glen Scaddle. The open-plan layout means you can enjoy the views from anywhere in the kitchen, dining room and living room. The traditional pine walls and oak floor make the cabin feel warm and cosy all year round.
  • Light the log burner, watch TV and relax on the leather sofas during the cooler winter months. On light summer evenings, open the French doors and spill out onto the balcony.
  • With fantastic views of the loch, every meal time will be a treat! The dining table seats four people.
  • Fully equipped kitchen with built in appliances stocked with everything you will need including built-in appliances and a dishwasher. There are lovely views of the woods around the cabin.
