The Moorings is situated within the delightful coastal settlement of Camusnagaul at Treslaig which is one mile west from Fort William across the confluence of Loch Eil and Loch Linnhe. This part of the west highlands is a recognised area of great natural scenic beauty with Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, dominating the local landscape.
Fort William is immediately adjacent and is a short one mile passenger ferry crossing operated by Highland Ferries on behalf of Highland Council. The crossing time is approximately 10 minutes.
Fort William has the main West Highland Road, the A82 which links to the West Highlands and the north and south of Scotland. The town is well served by a local bus service and Fort William has a main line railway station with a direct connection to Glasgow and London.
Fort William supports a wide range of shopping, recreational facilities, banks, building societies and professional offices.
There are a number of primary schools and a hospital as well as churches of different denominations. The town and Lochaber itself is now known as ‘the Outdoor Capital of the UK’ due to the wealth of and easy access to all types of outdoor activities including hill walking, climbing and skiing. Recent additions include a world-renowned mountain biking track hosting the Mountain Bike World Cup and a large indoor rock-climbing wall.
The house is in a beautiful west highland coastal setting with mature trees and hills as a backdrop and with quite spectacular and often dramatic views to the front across the loch to Fort William and the mountains and glens adjacent which include Ben Nevis.
Surrounding countryside is some of the most scenically dramatic on the west coast of Scotland. There is near endless interesting walking/cycling country and for the more adventurous, challenging hill climbs and mountaineering.
Skiing is available at the Nevis Range. For the field sportsman/woman there are opportunities to fish by permit for trout and salmon on the local rivers and lochs and some of the local estates run commercial shoots as well as allowing stalking by prior arrangement. There are numerous nearby slipways and jetties for water sports, yachting, sea water kayaking on Lochs Eil and Linnhe.
