More about us

  1. Amar and Bal - we are a sociable, travel-obsessed couple with one year old twin boys. Our property is a holiday home while we usually reside in London.

    We would like to be able to invite members of our family and select friends on your trips, a courtesy we will extend to our exchange partner. We are very responsible, considerate people and would treat your home better than our own!

    We are seeking a one week exchange between August and around October 2013 somewhere warm and sunny, and preferably short haul from the UK. Beach properties a big plus.

    We are further looking for a 2/3 week exchange in Asia from 14 December to 5 January.

    There is a small possibility of offering a car exchange but we would need to discuss this on a case by case basis.

    Wish list

    - highspeed internet and wifi as I run an online business
    - close to good hospital / paediatric care
    - a walkable town so we are not wholly reliant on a car
    - easy access to property for a double stroller

    I am allergic to pets

    Our apartment is never available in July / August when it is rented out.

Where is it?


The Highland Club is situated in the picturesque village of Fort Augustus which lies south-west of Loch Ness near the Caledonian Canal. Like any good village, there are a full selection of local amenities, including pubs, shops and restaurants.

Whether you’re into water sports, boating or spotting Nessie herself, the world famous Loch Ness will not disappoint. At 23 miles long, it is one of the longest and deepest lochs in Scotland. The character of the loch is undoubtedly awe-inspiring and varied given its size; so the view from the shifting banks changes dramatically as you travel through. With Inverness at the top, and Drumnadrochit to the west, the loch is connected by the surrounding A28 main road, allowing you to visit all of the key spots along the way.

From Fort William you can take the West Highland Railway. The West Highland Rail Line was, in 2009, voted by readers of Wanderlust Magazine the best rail journey not just in Scotland, Britain or Europe, but the world.

It’s a route well-known to fans of Harry Potter, with the 122-year-old Glenfinnan Viaduct becoming a place of pilgrimage for those following in the footsteps of the boy wizard on the Hogwarts Express Jacobite steam train between Fort William and Mallaig every year.
