Wildlife: Around the accommodation you will be living with many neighbours. They were here long before self catering accommodation was sensitively constructed on the site.

They range from flora and fauna of many kinds, orchids and grasses to fungi and litchen.

There are over 30 varieties of birds. Eagles soar above the high ridge behind the site and many garden birds feed on our nut feeders and nest in the boxes provided around the site.

Mammals as large as Red Deer to the small Pipistrelle Bat occupy the area and we have a resident family of Pine Martens who like to be fed anything sweet, bread and jam being a favourite!! Red Squirrels also make a recurring appearance quite often stealing the bird nuts, no greys here yet!!!!

Reptiles such as common lizards, slow worms, frogs, newts keep home in the burns and warm wet grass around the edge of the site. We are also graced with butterflies and bumble

Out & About: Next to our accommodation we have Loch Leven Seafood Café only 10 min walk away, which offers the freshest seafood cooked by an award winning chef at very competitive prices. What more could you ask for!!

Cosy chalet with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights at the beginning of the Easter holidays, a family of 2 adults 2 children. Ian and Sharon couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The chalet was very well equipped and we enjoyed cooking and preparing fantastic seafood from the Seafood Cafe just down the road during our stay. The views from the living room were stunning, and walking down across the road to the beach every evening was lovely. The chalet and garden were very well maintained and welcoming. Thank you very much, we hope to return in the future.

Very nice experience in the Hghlands

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is comfortable and the view on the loch is fantastic. It is not far from shops and small towns but in a very quiet area. It is an ideal place for walks and hiking, discovering Glencoe landscapes and the Loch Ness. Our family enjoyed staying at Loch Leven chalets very much.

Here at Loch Leven Holidays we are situated in a quite loch side location 4.5miles from North Ballachulish and the main A82, which is the North/South route up the Scottish West coast. We are in an enviable position sitting on the North shore of Loch Leven facing South over the spectacular mountains of Glencoe, with the Mamore range behind us. The setting is fantastic and the views are stunning. The area around has much to offer with walking, climbing, cycling, boating, sight-seeing or just relaxing.

We are only 7 miles from the spectacular Glencoe, 40 miles from Oban which is a lovely little fishing port where you can enjoy shopping, eating, walking or even seal watching.

Fort William the home of Ben Nevis (the highest mountain in the British Isles) is only 16 miles away where many indoor and outdoor activities can be enjoyed

Golf: Dragons Tooth Golf Course is only 6 miles away and is in a stunning position looking over Loch Linnhe. An ideal spot to enjoy a few rounds and enjoy a warming coffee or cool drink in the cafe.

Ski: We have 2 ski centres within 30 mins of the cottage, Glencoe Mountain resort only 12 miles away and Anoch Mor nr Fort William 20 miles away. Both excellent spots for enjoying winter sports but both having world class mountain bike routes, hire wire activities and food and drink options.
