Philip Green purchased this chateau / country house in 1988
Philip first saw this house in April 1988 and fell in love with the spectacular location and this beautiful Scottish house. He immediately bought it and has since spent many happy times with family and friends in this magnificent house.
We have renovated the house twice since 1988 and re-landscaped the grounds in 2013.
It is spacious, warm and comfortable. Even if there are 14 of you, it doesn't feel crowded. Some folks sit in the conservatory, some play pool, some hang out in the kitchen and others watch the 42 inch flat screen TV in the lounge.
We all get together for meals around the dining table.
We have had many parties here:- just move one settee from the lounge to the hall, roll back the rug and you have room for Scottish Country dancing. Oh the Gay Gordons! What a Highland Fling!
My father rented the house for his 80th Birthday...14 members of his family stayed at the house... there was enough room for us all. The pics online don't do the views justice.... the views from the house are absolutely breath taking. The house did need a little work but overall GREAT value. Great local restaurants, hiking trails........etc..... I would definitely rent again.
All the rooms are large and comfortable with great views. We would definitely consider rebooking.
The whole family had a great time at the Baronial House/Castle.
Couldn't find a more picturesque location. Weather was great for Scotland.
Used the house as an ideal location for exploring the Western Highlands, weather was not always our friend but our party from USA was able to climb Ben Nevis and hike in awesome Glencoe and find the opportunity to eat at some great local restaurants and come back to the house to relax in extremely luxurious surroundings
Large spacious home with ample nooks to spread out and enjoy even with larger parties. The interior is a bit tired, but the caretaker is prompt and helpful. The welcome info from Philip is also thorough and accurate.
A group of me and my friends stayed recently at the baronial house and it was delightful!
I honestly don't think the photos do it justice. The view from the front lawn is breathtaking and the house interior is lovely.
We had a wonderful time playing football, sunbathing, taking a chilly dip, playing pool and having dinner parties during our stay. It's also a very short drive front William if you wish to pay there a visit, which is where we did all our big shopping !
We would come hear again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much for having us! Sorry the review comes with such delay.
Set on the sea shore, with magnificent panoramic views of the sea and the mountains.
Ideal touring base with routes radiating out in all directions.
Close to Ben Nevis and even closer to the magnificent mountains of Glencoe. A perfect base for climbing the dozens of 'Munro' mountains within a 30 minute drive, or easy local walks direct from the house such as the 3 mile circular route around Inchree waterfalls.
Excellent base for cycling and mountain biking in the surrounding forest tracks or along the old railway line to Oban which is now a national cycle path.
|Refundable Damage Deposit||£250|
The £250 refundable security deposit is added to the total to pay when booking.
This £250 will be returned after your stay if the house is left undamaged and reasonably clean.
