About the property

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 David Campbell-Kelly

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.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the first week in June in this cottage and found it to be spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and very well equipped. It's superb location and amazing views were the icing on the cake. It is well placed for both Glencoe and Fort William, not to mention Ballachulish itself. I will definitely book this cottage again and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Perfect Highland Holiday Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this beautiful cottage for a week and couldn’t have asked for more for a great relaxing holiday. With the spotlessly clean cosy interior and great views of the loch and mountains outside, you know straight away you made a good choice staying here.

For walkers and outdoor lovers the area has countless great mountain, river, coastal and forest walks for all ages and abilities and one week certainly isn’t enough to take them all in.

We had a fantastic holiday and would definitely come back to this cottage again.

Perfect spot for a Highland break

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cottage has everything you need for the perfect holiday in the Highlands. It is spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The location is just perfect. I loved waking up to the beautiful view over the loch. The view from the deck is even better as it sits higher up in the spacious garden. The cottage is in an excellent location. We enjoyed some fabulous walks in the area and also visited some castles - Eilan Donan, Urquhart and Dunstaffnage. From Eilan Donan it was an easy drive on to Skye. Wherever you are in the area the scenery is just breathtaking. A favourite day was a trip to Glenfinnan (great for history buffs and Harry Potter fans) and then on to Arisaig for the most stunning beaches. The Loch Leven Hotel is within easy walking distance of the cottage and we enjoyed a nice meal there as well as visiting a couple of times for a drink after our long days exploring. We had good communication from the owner, David who also popped in to check everything was ok with our stay. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and would very much like to return in the not too distant future.

Fantastic cottage and location

  • 5 of 5

Travelled back to Scotland on holiday from Australia with my husband and 7 yo son for our first winter home in 18 yrs. Came across his cottage by accident, so glad we did. From the booking process to our departure date David could not have been more helpful. The cottage looks exactly as it does in the photos, spent most of our time in the kitchen area when not out exploring. THe cottage is in a great location and was beautifully renovated. When we next come home we hope to be able to stay here again.
