Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Two-bedroom cottage with stunning mountain & loch views, located on the Fort William road

Ardchattan is a stone cottage dating back to the 19th century situated on the Fort William road in the Highland region of Lochaber. The property overlooks a stoney beach, Loch Linnhe and the majestic Beinn Bheithir range of mountains.

To the south lie the villages of Ballachulish and famous Glencoe, home to Glencoe ski resort and mountains such as Aonach Eagach and Bidean nam Bian, all within 20 minutes' drive.

Stunning views across Loch Linnhe to the mountains beyond can be seen from a new private decking area to the rear of the cottage, which is set within a large garden.

The centrally heated cottage has recently been renovated and provides comfortable accommodation for 4-6 people, consisting of one double bedroom, a second bedroom with bunk beds to sleep 2 people and a double bed/settee in the living room. The kitchen diner is a beautifully converted barn with large Velux windows, stone flooring and exposed stone feature wall. The spacious room is fitted with new appliances, including electric hob and oven, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer and microwave.

The living room boasts views to the front and rear, and offers a cosy environment with wood and coal burning stove, including wall-mounted TV with DVD player. Fast Wi-Fi access is also included, which can be used throughout the property.

The cottage has a fully fitted bathroom with combined bath and shower with toilet and sink, along with a separate small WC.

About the Owner

My wife and I are private owners of the cottage which we purchased in late 2013. We bought the cottage as a project to renovate and bring up to the highest standards internally whilst retaining the authentic look of the outside.

We would like to thank you for letting your lovely cottage to us. It is beautifully done up and was very warm and cosy to come back to after a day out. We really loved the kitchen.

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very well renovated, very light and bright, even in October. It has a very large kitchen /dining room and all mod cons. The views from the garden ,especially from the deck would be hard to beat. Inside is very warm, you can have the central heating on all day if you want , but i managed 3 hours before i could take no more and turned it down. Just across the road is a pebble beach, perfect for sunset or to take the dog for a late walk. I wont waste time listing things to do, as there is so much choice, especially if you love this part of the world like i do. But as a base to do it from, you'll struggle to find better.

An outstanding cottage, and great location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is beautifully refurbished, very clean and well decorated, with a garden it is great to sit in and admire the view over the loch after a hike. Nicely situated for Glencoe, Fort William and Oban, and there are many hikes in the vicinity. The shower is wonderfully powerful; the wi-fi works perfectly, all the facilities were great, and David the owner was very helpful. We would strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a pleasant base in the Highlands.

A Beautiful cottage with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very well equipped with a lovely kitchen with everything you need. The bed was very comfortable and the shower is brilliant, the decking outside is great unfortunately the weather stopped us from using it. It is only a 15 minute walk to the Loch Leven Hotel where the food is very good and dogs are welcome. I would highly recommend this cottage and if we come back to the Highlands we will come back to Ardchattan.

Fantastic cottage with great views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really enjoyable stay at this cottage, with the renovation carried out to a high standard. It was great to have all home amenities available, such as a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and very good internet connection. We liked the decking out the back which enabled us to take in the great views across the loch - the weather was great so we made full use of this! We would definitely recommend this property and would be more than happy to return.

Comfortable and cosy

  • 4 of 5

Nicely appointed cottage in a very convenient location. Less than 25 minutes to Fort William and 15 minutes to Glen Coe. Lots of good walking tracks in the area, and a short drive to an excellent seafood restaurant who also sell direct to public. Walking distance - about 15 minutes - to the friendly local with good ales and huge range of gins and whiskies.

Only the two of us with the dog and the house was well-appointed with everything we needed inc good WIFI and kitchen amenities to cook proper dinners. Lovely sundeck which did not get lots of use due to the weather, but great views from the house and garden across the loch.

The house is on the main road but it's a balance between being in a gorgeous place near conveniences or totally off the beaten track.

I'd only say the bed could have been a bit comfier, but it wasn't a big deal. Recommended.
