We really loved our weeks's stay at the old school house. The accomodation is fabulous, the rooms are beautifully decorated and have stunning views.
The playstation was a big hit for my 3 young girls, although we could only find 1 controller, and when playing Harry Potter game, all three would have benefitted from being able to play together.
The inclusion of the black cat ho came for breakfast and tea was also a highlight for the girls.
We would love to have been able to pick the house up and bring it home!! The facilities including BBQ, dishwasher, washer/dryer and heated flooring was great. The brown water was a surprise and we had to buy bottled water!
Bear in mind that Fort William is the town, for shops etc. and is not the nicest place in the world ! However we would recommend the sea explorer trip in Ballaculish, and a trip to Glen Coe is a must. The trip on the cable car up Aonach Mor was also fantastic on a beautiful sunny day. If you want beaches, you have to travel about 1 hr 15 mins to get to the sands of morar, but it is worth the trip and you follow the route of the hogweeds train, and see some of the locations for the Harry Potter films.
In all, a great place to stay, particularly with the discount. Not sure I would want to go all that way for the full price. We have stayed at Fistral and will next try Cornwall, cost permitting!
Please place some more locations around the country, near beaches.
