Apartment in Fort William, Scottish Highlands, Scotland - Located Within 2 Mins Walk of Town Centre, Ideal Base for Families and Groups
About Nick Ferguson
I first visited Fort William in 1979 kayaking & to do Ben Nevis. Been going ever since, mainly for walking, climbing & mountaineering. I bought the apartment from a mountaineering & business buddy. If I cant live there then I would like as many other people as possible to enjoy what Fort William & its surrounds has to offer.
Nick Ferguson purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Nick Ferguson chose Fort William
There's only so many times you can visit one place before it becomes logical to have a permanent base at that location. The apartment has benefited from extensive modernisation work. The latest investments include Solar Thermal panel, LED downlighters and double glazed units to replace the original wooden sash windows.
What makes this Apartment unique
Walking, climbing, mountaineering, biking. Everyday you get different views & conditions. Love relaxing late afternoon, sitting upstairs on the balcony looking out over the Loch. Even better with a glass of wine!

Base Camp for a lovely outdoors vacation
Really good stay. There are a lot of stairs. Best views in town from upper deck. Super convenient location to walking area, train, library, supermarket, pubs, etc. Ample easy and safe parking. Slightly hard to locate. It might help to send a picture or put a flag on the hedge or something. Downstairs Entry holds an odor of past wetness but the upstairs apartment is fine. I am very sensitive and concerned at first but up the steps it isn’t noticeable. I love all the doors on all the rooms-even the kitchen. It allows you to change temperatures for each area quickly. Kitchen is well stocked for all needs. 3rd floor den has a treasure trove library for the area which was really helpful. Bedrooms were plentiful and comfortable. Wish our party was bigger, we didn’t use 2 of the bedrooms. We noticed the long counter upstairs in den with power outlets which would make a great place to do work if you need to work while you are away. We were very satisfied with our stay, our communication with Nick, check in, cleanliness was great, value and especially the view. We were only sad our stay wasn’t longer. 2 days weren’t enough for all the outdoors activities. Steal Falls were amazing.
This is a difficult review because my family had such varying opinions. This would be great for a youth group. The previous reviewers pointed out many of the features such as great location, plenty of cooking supplies, and an awesome view. We were looking for a break from hotels in our journey. The property allowed us to spread out, cook some meals, and wash clothes. This is not a fancy place, but more improved than the pictures show. It’s clean, but does have a strong mildew smell that you can quickly eliminate by opening windows. There was no clothes dryer, which was a huge disappointment for us. But 2 issues genuinely need resolution and hopefully will be addressed quickly. The master bed was comfortable. But the beds in the twin room were not usable, maybe a box spring and not a mattress? Our daughter ended up in the sofa so she slept neither night. The hot water heater for shower was also broken and required a game of chance as to what temperature would come out. There is a bathtub on the top level which helped.
My son had his own cozy nook so he lived his stay. The WiFi, TV and cable were excellent. There are interesting displays and area information available. Parking is easy.
I would recommend this place with caveats hoping that the beds and hot water are fixed soon.
Ideal location with excellent views
Stayed here for 2 nights so we could walk up Ben Nevis. Great location both near Ben Nevis and Fort William. Property very clean and well equipped. Will definitely return.
