About the property

2 bedroom cottage with stunning mountain views and all amenities close by

Strathassynt Cottage has a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each with ensuite shower rooms. There is also another bed which can be placed in either room for a 5th person. The dining/kitchen has an oven/hob, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, and the living room has reclining sofa and chairs, TV/DVD with Sky and a real fire. Central heating throughout. A real home from home.

About Neil, Katya and Mila

I am Scottish born and bread, but lived in Ukraine the for the past ten years where I had small publishing business. I got married there

and we have a beautiful baby girl. We returned to Scotland earlier this year and bought Strathassynt Guest House and the self-catering cottage. We're working hard to make sure all our guests enjoy their time here.

We run the guest house right next door to the cottage, so we're almost always on hand to answer questions, offer advice or solve problems.

Neil, Katya and Mila purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Neil, Katya and Mila chose Fort William & Lochaber

The cottage is a good size, but at the same time cozy and homey. It has everything you need, and with the pub across the road and the supermarket right behind, it's rural living without the inconvenience. It's really an excellent place to relax and recharge, and/or enjoy the great outdoors, while at the same time having everything you need right on your doorstep.

Ballachulish is a place we used to come as a family when I was a child. I have the fondest memories of the place. The sun might not always shine, but we always had the greatest time. The peace and quiet and spectacular scenery really make this a special place for me and my family.

What makes this cottage unique

What's really special about this place is that it has all the beauty, tranquility and outdoor activities anyone would want from a get-away-from-it-all holiday, while at the same time having everything you need inside or nearby for a hassle-free break.

Clean and tidy excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 4 and the accommodation and location was ideal for us. We enjoyed the Laroch restaurant and the walks, especially the walk in Ballachulish itself. I would recommend - Thanks Neil

Comfortable, spacious and convenient cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was always warm when we returned from our outings. Beds and sofas all really comfy. Co-op, pub and chippy (only open end of the week) all next door. Great place to come back to after a days activities.

Great location, great accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage. It was clean, comfortable, and had plenty of space for our family of four.

Neil was right next door and available for questions and help. When we mentioned it would be nice to have a French press for coffee, one arrived later that day. Our kids loved the selections of movies to choose from after a day of hiking or a rainy evening.

Location in Glen Coe area was perfect.

Great little cottage for 4 people in Ballachulish.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, good location. Very close to shops. Beds very comfortable, nice lounge. A cottage with old Scottish charm.

Close to Fort William, and not far from Oban and Invarary. Easy to reach the famous Glencoe mountains, just up the road.

Beautiful scenery all round, mountains, Lochs, and big vistas everywhere you look. A golf club and cafe, just down the road.

What more could you want.
