/ Fort William Advice
Also would own transport be a good idea?
There at least one other place in FB, prob fairly busy with tourists. Theres a place in Corpack, I think, its OK and the prob fairly regular buses in to town.
That doesn't seem that expensive if it's 'proper' accommodation - I wouldn't think you'd do much better in bunkhouses.
I've used the Bank St' Lodge, which seemed fine, but it would probably be quite pricey as a long-term residence.
Maybe they'd give you reduced rates if you do housework or something?
Also, are there lots of climbers around and should it be easy to find partners?
Look on the notice board outside the Rod and Gun shop. You wont find these places on the internet. Also phone Ellis Brighams and Nevisport.
There is no such place as Corpack.
The most active local club is The Polldubh Club. They have a website with a forum.
You might try the MCofS Hut in Onich, the Alex MacIntyre Hut - http://www.mcofs.org.uk/huts-macintyre.asp
Transport is very handy but a bike is all you need to get to the local hills.
