An enchanting tree-lined avenue leads to Druimarbin Farmhouse, our beautiful homestay for eight, nestled into private woodlands, and near to the ancient Highland garrison town of Fort William. Overlooking the silky waters of Loch Linnhe and the majestic peaks of the Lochaber Grampian Mountains, this welcoming retreat is set at the foot of Ben Nevis within over three thousand acres of private grounds with its own picturesque river, sea loch shoreline, endless mountain trails and beautiful hidden hill lochs. Fall into luxury inside the sumptuously curated interiors, relishing the rich comforts of each room and delighting in the wild vistas framed by large windows. Beckoning for dreamlike sojourns in spellbinding realms, the mountain-view gardens outside blend with untamed surrounds, perfectly admired from the wood-fired hot tub. Luxuriate in the quietude of this peaceful Highland haven, making the most of the nearby mountain trails, skiing resort, remote white beaches and loch shores for soul-stirring adventures. Just three miles away, the town of Fort William - the Gateway to Ben Nevis - awaits with shops, museums, art galleries and restaurants, including the Michelin recommended Seasgair by Michel Roux Jr.


Living

Adorned with pretty pink tones, the welcoming sitting room, surrounded by large windows, affords plenty of room for slow moments and easy living. Illuminated by mood lighting and showcasing commanding views, it beckons for relaxation and features two deep four-seater sofas in dusky rose arranged around a marble-topped coffee table. Sink into one of the comfortable sofas or chairs, immersing yourself in the captivating pages of a book or the stunning views of the loch just two hundred yards away. For cinematic evenings together, settle in front of the 55" Smart TV, complete with Netflix and Xbox. In winter, the cosy atmosphere is enhanced by the warming glow of the wood burning stove, while in summer, the sitting room's French doors can be opened to meet the patio and the outdoor, six-person wood-fired hot tub.


Eating and dining

The light-filled kitchen of Druimarbin Farmhouse proposes peaceful moments over soothing cups of coffee and social gatherings with sparkling flutes. Cute and compact with a bespoke kitchen island, it cleverly incorporates an array of integrated appliances and useful additions, such as a slow cooker and Nespresso coffee machine, so dream feasts can easily be prepared. Bathed in tranquil tones and featuring a pearly marble-topped counter, its soft palette reflects the earthy hues and organic textures of the grassy, bracken-fringed swathes beyond its window. Adjoining the space is an open-shelved pantry, while next door is a dining room with stunning loch and mountain views. Featuring a family-sized dining table and chairs that can be extended to seat sixteen, a comfortable armchair designed in traditional Scottish tartan, and an open log fire, this is the perfect space for unforgettable repasts. You will also find a handy utility space next door to the kitchen.


Sleeping and bathing

A super king bed resides in quilted harmony in the first bedroom. Promising pure bliss, it is dressed in the finest linens and rests alongside a mountain-view window for the dreamiest lie-ins. Seek tranquil repose within this soothing sanctuary, basking in calming tones and the ever-changing scenery beyond the window frame. For added comfort and convenience is an ensuite bathroom with a deep, egg bath for bubble-topped soaks.

The second bedroom is a picturesque twin featuring two single beds topped with the highest quality sheets. Exuding comfort, it is decorated in soft shades and blends exotic infusions with Chinoiserie cushions and blinds. This space is tastefully finished with a large chest of drawers and a spacious built-in hanging cupboard for stowing belongings. For added convenience, this bedroom boasts its own ensuite bathroom with an alcove window and delightful egg bath.

The adorable third bedroom is a dream in deep forest green. Ambient and oh-so cosy, it is home to a single, wood-framed bed with a regal mahogany headboard that nestles beneath characterfully sloping ceilings. At the other end of the room, a fitted wardrobe and hanging space are set within the eaves, complete with a window-side armchair draped in the softest sheepskin throws.

Perfect for children or friends, the fourth bedroom is a spacious twin room with two single beds. A further children's bed can also be added by arrangement. On the walls, painted wainscoting and walls imbue hygge vibes with pastel shades, elegantly paired with white linen and soft blue bed throws. There is also a double chest of drawers and ample hanging space. Encouraging lingering lie-ins are woodland and wilderness views from the window.

A sweet double, Druimarbin Farmhouse's fifth bedroom rests on the ground floor for easy access and offers lovely garden views. A serene hideaway that tempts for slow mornings and early nights with a book, it promises ultimate comfort with the finest linens and cosiest pillows and throws. Completing this room is an armchair swathed in fluffy sheepskin throws and a built-in wardrobe and hanging space for storing treasures.

Affording plenty of privacy and space, Druimarbin Farmhouse also has a downstairs bathroom with a refreshing rainfall shower, and an upstairs family bathroom with a double roll-top bath with a hand shower attachment.


Outdoor space

Accessed via a private woodland drive, Druimarbin Farmhouse takes pride of place within this Highland estate of over three thousand acres of private land, all available for walking, mountain biking, wild swimming, fishing, picnics, kayaking and other untold adventures. The estate is a haven for a multitude of Scottish wildlife, including majestic stags and soaring sea eagles. Step out from the door and soak up the tiers of the Highland garden, including patioed areas for dining and relaxing. With quilted blankets of pillowy grass, picnics under open skies are a dream on the lawns, while seating for eight, two Adirondack chairs, a picnic bench and an open fire pit tempt for formal alfresco feasts and starlit soirées. Calling for moments of ultimate relaxation, a heavenly wood-fired hot tub sits in a sheltered corner and offers space for up to six to gather over bubbles of the hot tub and Champagne variety. Beyond the gardens, sprawling private grounds hewn with rivers, hill lochs, woodland and hills hemmed by loch shores propose spellbinding escapism. Explore the vast, untamed landscapes and immerse yourself in a world of fairytale wonder, where enchantment resides around every corner.

In the Area

Set on the shores of Loch Linnhe in the western Scottish Highlands, Druimarbin Farmhouse is perfectly positioned for days of exploration. With a feeling of remoteness, yet conveniently located for travel links and shops, it's only three miles from the historic lochside town of Fort William. It resides in close range of the highest mountains in the UK, including the mythical and almighty Ben Nevis, and offers endless things to see and do. Particularly enticing for adventurers, the UK's only mountain gondola can be found at Fort William, affording skiing, snowboarding and high-octane biking opportunities in the mountains. The Silver Sands of Morar, the Singing Sands of Gortenfern and the Jacobite Steam Train in Fort William (used as the Hogwarts Express) promise untold magic, while Loch Linnhe Cruises offer enthralling journeys through jaw-dropping surroundings. Private fishing on Druimarbin Farmhouse's trout and salmon river can also be organised by prior arrangement.

To complement days in the wild, our stunning sanctuary is served by wonderful shops and eateries, including the popular Garrison, The Limetree and Crannog Seafood Restaurant in Fort William. Just beyond Fort William, at the history-rich Inverlochy Castle in Torlundy is the Michelin-recommended Seasgair by Michel Roux Jr.. A fine-dining restaurant with a focus on modern cuisine, this renowned establishment delivers five-course set menus full of flavour in a grand castle setting. For more culinary inspiration, seek The Pierhouse in Port Appin and The Prince's House in Glenfinnan. For further flung adventures, you can also uncover the outer reaches of Loch Ness within an hour's drive: a place where myth and reality blur their boundaries and beauty awaits at every turn.
