The Lengths Studio offers a unique 25-square metre open-plan space on the shorefront where Loch Linnhe meets Loch Eil, with views that combine vast natural and industrial landscapes. The Studio is an annex, with its own private entrance, that forms part of the Lengths—a converted primary school which dates back to 1967 originally built for the area’s industry workers’ children. The building has recently been meticulously renovated to maintain its original charm, but to allow it to sit more comfortably in the landscape. Internally the Studio offers a sleeping/lounging nook, a seating area and dining area. The kitchen has been fashioned from the original school kitchen unit framework and sink, with the addition of new concrete worktops. The bathroom has been loosely modelled on a Japanese style with a deep bath, copper rainfall shower overhead, warm wood tones and earthy encaustic tiles. The entire space is filled with original artwork and ceramics created by artists who have spent time here developing work, alongside a small selection of vintage finds.
The Lengths Studio is perfectly situated for day trips to the beautiful White Sands of Morar, the prehistoric landscapes of the Ardnamurchan peninsula or even the Small Isles. For those wanting to stop and rest, the neighbourhood has a wealth of regular wildlife visitors including seals, otters, porpoises, white-tailed eagles, osprey, buzzards, woodpeckers, heron, stags and red squirrels. There are some amazing walks through glens, along shorelines or through ancient woodlands directly by the house with views over the water to Ben Nevis. Please be aware that there are no shops or pubs/restaurants within walking distance of the studio unless you are looking to use the Camusnagaul passenger ferry (please check the Highland Ferries Camusnagaul timetable for crossing times).
To reach the Lengths Studio, you will need to travel to Achaphubuil, a small town that is approximately 30–40 minutes away from Fort William. If you arrive via the Caledonian Sleeper train, you can take a short pedestrian ferry crossing from Fort William to Camusnagaul. From there, it's an easy one-mile walk along a single track road to the house.
