The dining area has ample seating for two guests and the modern kitchen is well-equipped. Moving into the king-size bedroom (can be made up as two twins on request), you will find yet more views of the delightful countryside, whilst the modern, white bathroom completes the accommodation.

Outside, there is dining furniture in the extensive grounds, which you share with guests in the other properties, so that you can sit and soak up the tranquillity and views of the surrounding countryside. You are also welcome to wander around and enjoy the beautiful garden.

The villages of Duror and Kentallen are not far from the Argyll Coastal Route from Balluchulish in the north and Oban in the south. Located close to the shores of the breathtaking Loch Linnhe, this property offers guests the chance to take part in a number of activities, such as kayaking, fishing and sailing. The area's wildlife, such as seals, porpoises and golden eagles, in addition to its magnificent scenery and sunsets makes it popular with photographers.

The Kentallen to Ballachulish cycle path, which is part of the National Cycle Network, is great if you're keen cyclists, or if you're looking for something more leisurely, the pebble beach of Cuil Bay is only a short stroll away (1.2 miles) and the views of the mountains are spectacular. To see more of the sea loch, you can take a cruise and enjoy the commentary. Castle Stalker (6.5 miles), a 15th century keep standing proud on its tidal islet in Loch Linnhe, is perfect for a touch of history and beauty, but visits are limited and should be pre-booked.

If you become enamoured with gorgeous Glencoe, make your way to the Highlands Titles Nature Reserve (1.5 miles) to become a Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe by bagging yourself a small piece of land as a souvenir and helping to preserve this special place which is home to lots of wildlife from deer to pine martens.

As accommodation it was lovely, brilliant location and superb grounds, but you should really check ahead of time all the rules around bringing pets. It is not made clear beforehand that dogs aren't allowed on furniture or need their own bed, luckily we brought ours, but it is difficult to untrain pets used to going on furniture. Also not being ableRead more to leave the dog on its own meant we had to significantly change plans and this is quite difficult when you have a dog that isn't very active. Hide

We had a wonderful week in Linnhe Cottage. It is the perfect home base for exploring the beautiful area around Ballachulish. Easy driving distance to Fortwilliam, Skye and Oban and very close to the stunning mountains and scenery of Glencoe. The cottage itself is very clean, comfortable and was the perfect size for me, my wife and our wee dog ArchiRead moree. There are endless things to do in the area if you enjoy walking, climbing, cycling, water sports, snow sports (winter), etc. Hide

A lovely apartment in a beautiful location. Very clean and comfortable in spacious grounds. Close to main road so a little traffic noise, but really nothing to worry about! There's even a nature reserve just across the road with beautiful peaceful walks.

This cottage is in a great location for access to Fort William or Oban. Despite being attached to 2 other cottages, it still felt very secluded. Inside was well equipped, spacious and clean.
