Find cottages in Spean BridgeVisit Spean Bridge

Spean Bridge in the Great Glen is situated about nine miles north of Fort William on the road to Fort Augustus. The village is ideally located for exploration straight from your Scottish Cottage, with excellent road links to Inverness and the village has a railway station on the West Highland Line.

This scenic region of Scotland attracts many visitors who enjoy outdoor activities and there are certainly plenty of options, with the Nevis Range mountain resort just ten minutes south from Spean Bridge. Here you can try your hand at skiing and snowboarding in the winter months as well as high wire adventures, cycling and many other activities.

Nearby Leannachan Forest is an ideal place for cycling and walking, and the village also has a nine hole golf course with lovely views of Ben Nevis and the surrounding mountains. The River Spean provides opportunities for kayaking, white water canoeing and fishing, so visitors to the village will never be at a loss for something to do.

Spean Bridge is well known for its links with the Commando training that took place during World War II; thousands of allied troops were based at nearby Achnacarry Castle and trained in the countryside around the village. Their service is commemorated by the Commando Monument a mile to the north of the village, which should not be missed. From here, you can also enjoy wonderful views over the mountains.

In the village itself you will find a well stocked village shop, but if you prefer to eat out, there are various restaurants to choose from. Visitors are also able to watch weaving demonstrations at the Spean Bridge Woollen Mill and the Highland Soap Company has a gift shop in the village.

Taking its name from the Highbridge just over a mile from the village, Spean Bridge is an ideal base for exploring this part of the Scottish Highlands. So search for holiday cottages in Spean Bridge to find holiday accommodation.
