Property Overview
Map Location

Roshven Farm is situated in Moidart about 30 miles west of Fort William on the shore of Loch Ailort. The area is known for its stunning scenery and the dramatic mountains that appear to rise straight out of the lochs. 

The A-frame chalets each have the same layout but with a slightly different aspect. They are named Alison, Margaret, Charlotte, Vicky and Catriona. Catriona chalet is the only lodge out of the 5 to have had a recent refurbishment and now has a new kitchen, including a fridge/freezer, and an oak floor. For this reason is slightly more expensive.

For the outdoor enthusiast, there are a huge number of opportunities and as a result the area has always been popular with tourists. There are an abundance of listed walks and cycle ways and magnificent hills such as Roisbheinn are on the doorstep. The Nevis Range ski centre, Scotland's newest ski centre, offers fabulous runs when conditions allow and the gondola is popular with tourists throughout the year. 

Many bird watchers and animal lovers come to the area and Roshven was home to Jemima Blackburn, the renowned 19th century painter who features wildlife in many of her paintings. There is a local shop in Glenuig providing a range of grocery items and a doctors surgery in Arisaig. Fort William offers a wide range of high street shops, banks, professional firms, medical centre and hospital. In addition, there are leisure centres, swimming pools, museums and the Nevis Activity Centre which offers a wide range of outdoor activities.

Roshven Farm Chalets are in an excellent position for those who want to tour Lochaber and even further afield - whether it is a boat trip to Skye and the Small Isles, a ride on the steam train or just a walk in the hills. There is a wealth of history in Moidart, not least the associations with Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite movement; and with all the natural flora and fauna you will run out of time to see and do it all.
