You'll likely have a lot of love for near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. Well, look at the pics – how could you not?
The location here is lovely: on the family croft of Nicky and Donald, at the foot of Ben Nevis and on the shores and of Loch Linnhe – and with Highland cows hanging around who are quite the posers when walkers stop to snap a shot.
And the accommodation is topping, in the croft's 'wee round house' set up for glamping guests who enjoy being in the remote outdoors but who also want some cosy comforts. It has a woodburning stove and a gas cooker – firewood and gas is supplied – and electricity from a leisure battery charged up from a solar panel.
And you'll likely have a lot of love too for the space just outside the wee round house, which has seating and a fire area to make toast over the fire or have a barbecue – all among the backdrop of these spectacular views.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Arriving at Fort William head out on the Inverness road until you get to the BP station then turn left across Lochy Bridge followed by another left at the Farm Foods store. Driving along the Lochyside Road you will pass a primary school and you will be following the river. Just as you enter the village of Caol to your left you will look up the field and see the .
There's lots to do near , especially if you ask Donald and Nicky for tips: they're keen walkers and canoeists, and are more than happy to share their knowledge of these and other activities in the area like cycling, diving, fishing and skiing.
One of the prettiest walks in the area – admittedly quite a high bar – starts straight from the croft to the shore front of Loch Linnhe, and from there all the way to Corpach along the shore. If the tide is out, walk out to the island and back along the river at the estuary.
The Caledonian Canal with Neptune's Staircase is also within walking distance, as is the gondola of Nevis Range and a treetop climbing course for when Ben Nevis has been tackled.
When you're in this area, a trip on the steam train to Mallaig is a must for its spectacular views: if you've seen the Hogwarts Express steaming north in the Harry Potter films you'll know how it spectacularly looks...
Donald's also pretty knowledgeable on local history – Lochabar is steeped in it from the Jacobite uprising to the training of the commandos – and will be around to whet appetites for anyone interested in the same.
And speaking of appetites, plenty of places are nearby for food, drinks and occasional live music, like the Lochy Bar, the Moorings Hotel and the Trade Winds Bar within walking distance and the Achintee Inn at the start of the Ben Nevis footpath, for nosh and a pint after your hike up the Ben.
