Overview

About the property

Family home with 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are en suite. Fantastic loch views.

Camus Bhan, located on the shores of Loch Leven at Invercoe, is a spacious and very well presented family home on the fringes of Glencoe village. Accommodation comprises kitchen, dining room, lounge, bathrooms and 3 bedrooms with 2 benefiting from en suite facilities.

The house can accommodate up to 7 guests. Upstairs there’s a double room and a twin bedded room, both of which have en suite shower and toilet facilities. On the ground floor you’ll find another double room, which also has a single bed so can be used as a twin. Adjacent is the master bathroom with deep, luxurious bath, and a separate shower.

The lounge has a full height window with a view over Loch Leven and towards the west. The sunsets over Ardgour can be spectacular. Should you ever tire of the view, FreeSat TV is provided with many channels available. Fibre broadband is due to be available from the end of May.

The kitchen includes the usual range of appliances, including a dishwasher and a combi washer/dryer. The dining room leads off the kitchen and enjoys a view over the garden to the loch. In the cooler months, you may wish to light the open fire – we’ll provide fuel for your first lighting.

There is a modest private garden and for sunny days and deck where you can sit back and enjoy the setting sun over the Ardgour hills. If you are bringing your bikes, kayaks or other big toys with you on holiday then you may wish to use the shed or the car port to the rear of the property for storage.

Woodland walks to the lovely Glencoe Lochan can be started from the back door. The Glencoe Inn is within walking distance, along the shore of Loch Leven towards Glencoe crossroads – a lovely place for a stroll in the evening sun. Clachaig is approximately 4 miles away by car.

A grocery order service is provided for all our guests at Clachaig Holidays. We are able to offer a select list of items to help ensure that the first day of your holiday isn’t spent at the supermarket. The simple tick list contains everything from basic essentials such as bread and milk through to salmon, steak and other speciality Highland products. Please ask for more details when making your booking.

Why Reception chose Glencoe

Camus Bhan is the most recent addition to the portfolio. We fell in love with this property as soon as we saw it. It provides proportioned family accommodation in a lovely setting at the fringes of the wider Glencoe village area.

In addition, the outlook over Loch Leven with the ever changing tides and light will keep you mesmerised. And if you can draw yourselves away from the view, there are beautiful woodland walks from the back door towards the Glencoe Lochan and the Bridge of Coe.

Spectacular view over the Loch. Wonderful stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in Chamus Bhan Cottage in October, we arrived to a warm cosy feel to the cottage as the heating had been on which was most welcome as it was quite chilly.

The cottag provides everything you need for a holiday stay. the beds were very comfortable and all the bedrooms a good size with En-Suite for the upstairs bedrooms and the main bathroom for the ground floor bedroom - a really lovely bathroom with a fab bath!! The ground floor bedroom facilities are excellent as one of our party is disabled.

The views from the front of the house are spectacular and you could stand and stare all day long!

We had a couple of small issues - shower and window problem - which were addressed very quickly. We had no problem with WiFi but as on holiday not particularly bothered anyway!

The house instruction book was helpful & informative but we struggled to know which bin was for which rubbish and the neighbour did not know for sure either - we just guessed! Also we had hope for more ‘things to do’ leaflets so we could plan our week. We did collect a number over the week and left them for the next visitors.

We found the lounge furniture not to be very comfortable but we know that the owners have only just taken over the property and have plans for upgrade and refurbishment.

Overall we would highly recommend this property for location, scenery and as a good base for the Western Isles and Lochs beautiful walks and for the more adventurous many more activities are on th doorstep.

Lovely tea shop / gifts / art gallery on the main road and a really nice friendly cafe in the centre of Glenco where we had a lovely meal.

Wonderful week and would return tomorrow 😀? Thank you.

Nice house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and confortable. From the dining room there is a beautiful view on the loch. The location is perfect to explore both Glen Coe and the area of Fort William and Glen Nevis. I definitely recommend it.

Beautiful house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a few bug bears to be honest the pub where we needed to pick the key up was no where near Camus Bhan so that was totally inconvenient and expensive because we couldn't find it and after a long tiring drive was a little much especially as we couldn't get 4G so we couldn't get sat nav either...My sister has her own business and lost sales on her website due to not being able to access the wifi which was an imperative factor when booking as we were already aware of the poor 4G coverage - Had we known there was a problem with wifi there is no way we would have been able to come but we was told as a 'by the way' when we picked up the key rather than a phone call or email prior.

We stayed in a house for 7 people yet there was only 6 chairs around the dining table (we purchased a stool so we could all sit together)

There were only 4 chairs for outside and no chiminea as advertised - also anyone wishing to use the car port also advertised will find a trailer inside it.

The furniture in the front bedroom upstairs had drawers that came unassembled when opening them so we had to spend time putting them together again before using them... they could do with some wood glue to make them more sturdy.

Also smelly mops in the cupboard and stagnant water didn't even attempt to use them, the dustpan and brush were outside in the shed.

I think our main bone of contention was the lack of sympathy when we enquired about wifi and just informed that we are all in the same boat only they weren't 400 miles away from home losing money they still took ours...,

That aside these are things that can be easily rectified. The house itself is lovely and beautifully decorated,it is much bigger than it looks and there was plenty of room for seven of us. The view from the loch across the road is amazing and the place itself is breath taking and dramatically stunning. It was a lovely holiday will come back to the highlands if we can find a nice sandy beach because that's what the children like. I would recommend this property. I would suggest that the key is brought to the guests on arrival or left somewhere closer.

Owner's Response: Any negativity seems to have arisen from the wifi issue and we can understand the frustration of not having the service offered. However, BT proved to be as bad as ever in rectifying the fault. We were promised a fix before you arrived though BT signed off the fault they didn't actually check. We spent hours (literally) trying to get BT on the case, both before your arrival in the full expectation that it would be resolved, and during your stay. Appointments were missed, promises broken and it took a very long time to get the wifi up and running. We're sorry, but it was completely out of our control. Key collection is at Clachaig Inn, and we advise of this. Pretty much all our guests will arrive from the south, and it's a very short detour from the A82 to call by. We have a Google on our site to show the locations of property and inn. It's also an opportunity to introduce ourselves. We are looking at providing key safes at our properties, but having experienced this ourselves on trips away we are concerned about the disconnect that it creates between the guest and the property manager. We are close by (about 3 miles from the property) and we're here all day 7 days a week. We're keen to ensure that your stay is as enjoyable as possible. If there are issues we're here to sort them. If you wished to use the car port, it could have been remedied immediately with one phone call, but was never mentioned when discussing the wifi. We suspect that the real issue here is the wifi, and we understand that. We don't offer a chimenea and have never offered one. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay. The location is quite special, and the views spectacular. It is a great house and a great location for a holiday. The nearest beach is at Cuil (about 8 miles) and while there is sand it's limited. There are sandy beaches towards Oban, but for the full beach experience and perhaps some of the best beaches in the UK we would always recommend a day trip towards Arisaig and Mallaig (about 80 mins drive).

Sehr schönes Haus, sehr gut ausgestattet!

Das Haus hat alles was man braucht. Es gibt drei Schlafzimmer, jedes mit Bad.

Die Küche ist bestens ausgestattet. Man kann vom Haus direkt in den Wald gehen.

Die Spazierwege in der Umgebung sind sehr schön.
