Description

This delightful semi-detached cottage sits at the head of historic Glencoe, making it a perfect base for exploring the west coast of Scotland. Cosy, tastefully furnished and well equipped, the cottage is ideal for couples, friends and small families. With views towards Loch Leven and the magnificent ’Pap of Glencoe’, the area is renowned for its breathtaking scenery, which has been used as the backdrop for many famous films including Harry Potter, Rob Roy and Braveheart.
From Fort William (known as the ’Outdoor Capital of the UK’) you can travel on the Jacobite steam train across the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct, or drive along the ’Road to the Isles’ and sail to the beautiful Isle of Skye. Crossing on the nearby Corran Ferry will allow you to explore the Ardnamurchan Peninsula with its rocky coastline and white sandy beaches. The small bustling town of Oban (’Gateway to the Isles’) has regular ferries from the harbour to the Inner Isles, including Mull, Staffa and Iona.
Glencoe and Fort William both have ski resorts and are also very popular areas for climbers and walkers. Discover cycling, kayaking, golf, snow boarding, bird watching, fishing or indoor climbing all within easy reach, and for the less energetic there are plenty of gentle forest walks, museums, distilleries, castles, gardens and monuments to visit. The small villages of Glencoe and Ballachulish are a short walk from the cottage and both have a shop, café, bar and restaurant. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

About the local area

Fort William and the Lochaber area has to be the outdoor capital of the UK due to the its location at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest peak. The walking around this area is fabulous. From the southern mecca of Glen Coe to the wilder and less visited northern area of Knoydart there are many diverse landscapes to enjoy with equally amazing views over lochs and sea.

Fort William itself has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The High Street has a range of shops, and outdoor enthusiasts are especially well catered for by large shopping outlets. There are also a wide range of eating and drinking opportunities in Fort William, including the prize winning Crannog Seafood Restaurant. The lovely Lochleven Seafood Café is another winning eatery and perfect for a scenic meal.

Around Fort William there are outdoor activities in plenty, including walking and climbing, cycling and mountain biking, riding and trekking, a brilliant golf course, angling and a range of water-sports. East of the town The Ben Nevis Range is a year round sporting destination. It also offers a spectacular gondola ride up the side of Aonoch Mor with its accessible pathways and exhilarating views over the west Highlands.

For a more relaxing adventure visit the Ardnamurchan peninsula. It is here you can relax in some peaceful ancient oak woodlands that date back to the last ice age, over 12,000 years ago! This area is a haven for rare wildlife such as the chequered skipper butterfly and the views out to the small isles of Rum, Eigg and Muck are stunning.

But be sure that where ever you go you will never tire of the magnificent, ever changing views of Ben Nevis that makes this area so popular.
