                                      This is a wonderful holiday let in a fabulous part of the country. Beautifully furnished and decorated. The best equipped kitchen we have encountered! The view from the lounge window is stunning and if it rains the wood stove more than makes up for it. The local Co-op store is 10 minutes away in Ballachulish and had everything we needed for a weeks stay. Owner Undine was friendly and helpful. A walk to the nearby waterfalls at Inchcree is a pleasant way to pass a morning or afternoon. Lots to do but a pleasant place to do nothing in too! We received a very warm welcome at the local church. Definitely recommend Beachcomber cottage. Just watch your head on the stairs if you are over 6 foot! Thanks Undine. We also enjoyed the Jacobite Steam Train, West Coast Tours tour of Mull, Iona & Staffa #💖Puffins, Stean Gorge at Ben Nevis, Ben Nevis Distillery, Cruachan Power Station.

                                      A beautiful cottage in an amazing area. We loved staying there,everything we needed to. Another mirror would help as the only one was a small one in the bathroom. I would recommend this cottage to anyone. Everything was immaculate in the cottage beautiful decor and all modern accessories. A credit to the owners.
