Great cottage in amazing location
Had a fantastic week at Ardchattan cottage. The house itself is cosy, with a great modern kitchen, and a huge garden with stunning views. It is also brilliantly located for getting out in the mountains around Glen Coe and Nevis, to the beaches south towards Oban, and exploring further west towards Arisaig. The hidden beach at Rhu was especially lovely.
Lovely property, clean, warm with everything you needed. Views from the garden were stunning. Read a few reviews about the road being noisy, but it really quietens down at night so not a problem.
Beautiful cottage & location
We had a lovely week over half term, despite the wet weather.
The cottage is finished to a very high standard and has all the facilities that you require. The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked most days, there is also good storage for food as some properties don't leave enough cupboard space.
I used the washer on a few occasions and , although there isn't a tumble dryer there are enough airers, and a towel rail in the bathroom, to be able to dry a full load of washing.
The garden is stunning with the raised decking area, although we were unable to use it during our stay due to the rain. The garden is completely enclosed and there is a front gate which makes it safe for dogs as the front leads directly onto the main road. There was a bit of traffic noise at times but it didn't interfere with our stay nor with sleeping.
We had trips out to Ben Nevis & Glencoe where our boys had a snowboarding lesson, both about 30 minutes drive, Inchree waterfalls just up the road, Neptune's Staircase a canal walk just outside Fort William and we then ate at The Lochy Bar, which was great for the dog in the bar but we found out after we'd ordered that kids aren't allowed in the bar, although they did let us stay for our meal.
David, the host was very approachable both via email and in person and he contacted me a couple of days before to let us know how to access the cottage.
I recommend Ardchattan for the location and beautiful finish of the cottage and would definitely stay there again if holidaying in Scotland.
We rented this cottage to get away for my 50th birthday It was exactly how it was described Beautiful scenery and very well equipped..I had bought my own cleaning products to find it was already there.It was very warm and cosy even though it was early January. Thank you David ee will definitely be back...
Beautiful cottage in convenient location
Wonderful kitchen for cooking and family dining, very light and spacious. Great to have a dishwasher and washing machine. Lovely warm house. Very well kitted out, we had everything we needed. Lovely views, especially from the garden. Great location to explore the area, easy parking. Bringing bath towels wasn’t a problem for us as were in a car. Beds are ok, could feel the springs in the mattress and we’re used to sleeping in a king size so the double bed felt a little small for us. The road next to the cottage is a really busy main road but luckily none of us are light sleepers so the lights and the noise didn’t trouble us at all. Had a lovely week in the area!
The nearest coast is a stoney beach on the shores of Loch Linnhe a two minute walk away. There are many opportunities within driving distance to enjoy the coastline including the dramatic Ardnamurchan Point or sandy beaches at Morar. There are seaviews from the cottage.
The use of a car is advisable to reach the property and to make the most of the opportunities to explore. However access to the Highlands can be achieved by flying to either Glasgow or Edinburgh and then either hiring a car or by Coach. The cottage is on the bus route to Fort William and North Ballachulish has a request stop in easy walking distance to the property. Alternatively there is a train service to Fort William from Glasgow Queen Street station. There is a bus service from Fort William.
Glencoe village is 5 miles away with Fort William 13 miles. Oban is 33 miles , Inverness 77 Miles and Glasgow 95 miles.
Basic provisions can be bought at the local petrol station 100 metres away. There is a wider choice at shops in Glencoe and Ballachulish (3 miles). In Fort William there is an even larger range including a large Morrisons. There are plenty of opportunities for eating out, from bar meals to mid price meals at Onich Hotel or The Holly Tree at Kentallen, with top of the range dining at Inverlochy Castle or Airds Hotel, both set in dramatic scenery.
There are many opportunities for enjoying the outdoors. Mountain walking, canoeing, boating, segway, ice wall climbing, steam train ride (Harry Potter line) and mountain biking are just some of the activities. Climb Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, the start is just a 20 minute drive away.
