Charming stylish traditional cottage, located in An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the world-famous Glencoe. Perfect for an active holiday or just relax and enjoy the magnificent scenery.

Sleeping six plus two dogs, gather all the family to this cottage, surrounded by magnificent and dramatic countryside. Brimming with mountains, lochs and glens, there are walks to suit all energy levels right from your doorstep. With storage for mountain bikes and skis, get your heart racing before retreating indoors, dropping wet gear in the fantastic Wintersteiger drying room, to enjoy the underfloor heating and the wood burner-effect electric fire, with your pup curled up at your feet.

Whitewashed wooden panelling is complemented with warm wooden furniture and elegant, neutral decor in cream and beige. Pretty textiles add a flair of character whilst framed maps and artwork of atmospheric landscapes reflect the remote and dramatic location.

Step inside this stylish, traditional detached cottage, discard outdoor clothes in the hall and potter through to the light and bright lounge. Here, comfortable sofas invite you to relax and read one of the many fascinating books or watch a movie. Cook a delicious homecooked meal in the kitchen to enjoy at the table together, before retreating upstairs to the spacious twin bedrooms, light and restful in serene decor. Wake to fantastic mountain views before welcoming the morning with a coffee and birdsong in the fully enclosed rear garden.

Outside, there is seating perfect for al fresco dining in the evening, so pour a glass of wine or a wee dram and make the most of the rural dark skies with long evenings stargazing. Off-road enclosed private parking is available for three cars at the rear of the property.

Beautifully decorated and furnished cottage in an amazing location. Very homely with everything you could possibly need provided for an often wet walking holiday - the drying locker is amazing! Will definitely return in the future.

Location was very good although surprised how busy the passing road was, particularly with motor bikes. Neighbours and locals were very friendly but had a bad experience at the Glen Coe Gathering. Wont go there again. Sitting out was spoiled a little by fumes from the heating exhaust. Other than the Gathering issue, these are very minor points and Read moredidnt detract from our holiday at all. Hide
