Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Glencoe - Detached House With Stunning Loch And Mountain Views

Sleeps 6. 3 bedroom house with stunning views over Loch Linnhe to the mountains of Ardgour. Perfectly located for outdoor activities and exploring the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Glencoe, Fort William, Oban, Ardnamuchan Peninsula all easily accessible. Hill walking, mountain biking, golf and watersports on the doorstep. Lochside cycle path 2 minutes away. Scenic 20 min walk to loch side hotel and restaurant.

The Old Schoolhouse is excellently located for exploring the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. To the east are the mountains of Glencoe and remote Glen Etive. To the west the wildlife of rugged Ardnamurchan. South brings bustling Oban with its seafood and ferries to the Isles. North lies Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK. Further on lies Glenfinnan, location for the Harry Potter films, the white beaches of Arisaig and Skye via the ferry from Mallaig. The house is full of character. The lounge was once a schoolroom and is spacious and bright with stunning views over the loch. It has a cosy wood burning stove which provides plenty of heat all year round. The bedrooms are in a more recent extension and are warm and comfortable. The house has been sympathetically decorated throughout. There are numerous outdoor activities on the doorstep and a large, sunny garden for quiet days. The loch side cycle path opposite the house provides easy walking and cycling with lovely views.

Scotland at its best

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten wonderful days in the old school house. From the beginning we felt very comfortable - like being at home. Thanks to Fiona nothing was missed! The house is clean, well equipped and nicely decorated. The evenings with a Scotch Single Malt at the stove were very cosy which was a nice relaxation in contrast to our long trips to the beautiful landscape across Western Scotland. The weather was just perfect, mostly sunny and only one rainy day. The house is located perfectly for trips to Loch Ness, Isle of Skye, Maillaig and lots of castles and distilleries, etc.

This was our first trip to Sotland and we enjoyed the friendly and warm-hearted people there. We will surely come back to visit all the nice places we missed this time.

Best wishes and happy holidays to all of you,

Julia & Marcel

Lovely winter weekend

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the last glimmerings of evening light, with snow dusting the Morvern hills across Loch Linnhe and what a delight. The cottage is so spacious, especially the lovely old school classroom/sitting and dining room with its stove, but also the lovely, warm bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen and shower room/toilet. All was in immaculate order and cleanliness, with lovely linens too and decorative touches.

My daughter-in-law is Siberian Russian and her Mum is over at the moment, so we had wanted to give her a little taste of the west coast. She loved it and we all enjoyed ourselves, in spite of the wintry weather. The stove is amazing and had us in our tee-shirts in no time, cosily dried out.

My husband has already recommended your cottage to a recently arrived Portuguese couple he knows. You have a great location there, pretty views across the loch but also you can turn in so many directions for visits and hill walks.

Thank you for allowing us to rent your holiday home last weekend. What a lovely place you have, it was perfect for our needs.

Happy to recommend

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week from late September and had a really great time. Location of house is an excellent base for exploring the area. The house itself is better than the pictures suggest. Its comfortable and well equipped with plenty of space. We went with our dog and appreciated the secure garden.

Would have liked to have wifi in the house but we knew its not available in advance. Water pressure in the shower is lower than we would have liked.

Very easy to organise the booking etc with Fiona and would be happy to recommend to anyone.

Return to Otter Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Another great visit to this well appointed cottage. Tastefully decorated, with a great main room. Can't beat a wood burning stove. Nice modern, bathroom, kitchen with all the necessary pots, pans and crockery etc. The views across Loch Linnhe to Morven & Ardgour even on a dull day are really special. If you are really lucky you may even see an otter from the front window!

Nice traffic free cycle path to Appin and Glencoe on the doorstep. So much to do another visit can't come too soon.
