Make a holiday cottage in Glencoe your home away from home

Glencoe holiday cottages serve as the perfect basecamp for an out and about holiday in Scotland’s most famous glen. This stunningly beautiful village is located near the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands on the southern bank of the River Coe, and is renowned for its gorgeous natural scenery. HomeAway holiday cottages in Glencoe are equally suited for a romantic rendezvous for two, or a rollicking expedition of 11. Holidaymakers can enjoy rich natural exteriors of stone or wood and interior touches like leather furnishings, modern appliances, or satellite TV. Some holiday lets come with gardens and a few even boast Jacuzzis and pools! Romp around outdoors or relax in a cozy chalet; there is something for everyone in Glencoe.

Things to do

-Golf: Slay the Dragons Tooth Golf Course for a challenging and affordable 9-hole experience. This lochside course is open every day of the year during daylight hours and welcomes individuals and families of all abilities. The guided Segway tours offer something truly different!

-Hiking: The mountains and holiday chalets in Glencoe attract serious hikers, mountain bikers and ice climbers. There are dozens of trails for unparalleled Highland walking or biking, but note that these excursions require a certain skill level. Conditions can be strenuous in summer and dangerous in winter, so warnings should be heeded and no-one should take on more than they can handle. There are guided tours available at lower elevations as well as plenty of easy walking trails for the less experienced.

-Family activities: The Ice Factor provides indoor rock and ice climbing for the whole family. All skill levels welcome and instruction is provided. There is bowling and also an aerial activity course for even more thrills and a soft play area for the youngest family members. This is an excellent suggestion for a rainy day.

-Sightseeing: Fort William, just 20 minutes away, makes for an excellent trip. The High Street has plenty of shops, but there's the Nevis Range mountain gondola for spectacular views of the surrounding Highlands, and even a restaurant at the end so guests can have lunch at 2,200 feet! Other activities popular with guests in holiday cottages in Glencoe are painting pottery at Fired Art and the steam train to Mallaig which passes the UK’s shortest river, tallest mountain, deepest loch and most westerly railway station along the way!

-Watersports: The opportunities to get out, on and in the water in this area are practically endless. World-class fishing, sailing, kayaking, water skiing or just taking pictures at the beautiful beaches can all be enjoyed. There is even whitewater rafting and “canyoning” – where participants descend a series of waterfalls in various ways including sliding and jumping into deep pools below. Fancy it? Best book a holiday chalet in Glencoe with a fireplace to snuggle up next to afterwards!

Fiona was very helpful and set up everything we needed for our 1 year old. Can't fault a thing!!!!

It is ideally situated near the town and has a lovely view of the loch from some of the windows. The welcome pack was the best we've ever had in any self catering. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable and very spacious. We had awful weather, just one dry day in a week, but we still came back feeling very chilled and refreshed!
