About Us

We emigrated here from the south-east coast of England in 1990, with our two children and four dogs. We spent about three months looking for a property. We started building our family home in January 1991 and moved in, in the March, adding the holiday cottage in 2004.

Eric's background is engineering and forestry. He retired from the RAC five years ago. Now he does community car driving and maintains the properties. 

My background is in catering and now I work as a home Carer, with a love of gardening, our two dogs and three ponies.  Both children have fled the nest and between them we have five lovely grandchildren.

Alba Ben view has been running since we built it in 2004. We are conveniently situated just off the A82 Glasgow to Inverness road, on the B8004 just down from the world famous Commando Memorial.  The view from the cottage kitchen and sitting room windows looks into the north face of Ben Nevis and Aonach Mor, where the cable car takes you up the mountain to the restaurant.

There are some lovely walks and cycle paths nearby, where the wildlife can be seen and enjoyed.

The cottage is available from Saturday to Saturday, we provide all bed linen, towels, tea towels, toilet rolls and kitchen roll. There is free Wi-Fi.  There is one en-suite double bedroom and an en-suite twin bedroom, but if you would like two double bedrooms, please phone us in advance as we can make the twin into a king size bed.  The cottage is wheelchair friendly with no step access and accessible bathrooms with hand rails and easy access showers.

We also offer exclusive use of the indoor hot tub and sauna at no extra cost to you, perfect after a long day out exploring the beautiful countryside.

We ask for a £150 non-refundable deposit the balance due on arrival. Payment can be made by cheque or bank transfer. Arrival is after 3 PM and we ask you to depart by 10 am.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Relaxed and friendly welcome. Lots of helpful information.

Well appointed cottage, perfect for our requirements.

We had a lovely stay, with the stunning views of Ben Nevis each morning 

reminding us of our trek to the top last Sunday.

Thank you to the owners.

Frank, Donna, Matt and Charlotte.
