About Stella MacIntyre

We lived in this lovely cottage for 20 years until sadly our family outgrew it and we had to move. We now live close by in North Ballachulish on our family croft.

Stella MacIntyre purchased this cottage in 1991

Our children grew up in this cottage, it has a lovely homely feel. The village is very peaceful and yet a variety of activities are available close by.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We chose this as it was in an idyllic location. If you looking for peace and quiet, then this is it !

The cottage has all the normal things you would want and in a rustic / in line with the period kind of way.

Lots of things to do, cable car at the Nevis Range, Oban across to Mull, which we`ve done before, 2 minute ferry crossing at Corran across Loch Linnhe to for an alternative route to Arisaig, which is pure heaven, then onto Mallaig, which was great. There is a new eatery place at this crossing point too, which is first class.

The steam train from Fort William to Mallaig was on our wish list, but needs plenty of notice to book this up and we didnt make it.

Handy little shop opposite for odds and ends, then a larger Coop 5 minutes away.

Glencoe Village is a 100% fabulous location to base yourself at, Fort William is 15 miles away, the Nevis Range is a further 6 miles. The Glencoe cable car is 15 miles south on A82.

You will not be disappointed.

Lovely property

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property could do with a little bit of updating especially the cooker and maybe a bit of a fresh paint.

Lovely stay in a really well furnished and located cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay in Glencoe thanks to Stella's perfect cottage in the center of the village. It rained a lot but the cottage has it all to occupy the little ones when obliged to stay inside! And the surroundings benefit from beautiful landscapes and walks easy to access from the cottage. Definitely a gem in the region!

Great location, very helpful owner, good setup

  • 4 of 5

Three nights in a tidy little property - fit our needs well. Good location - near enough to main road for easy travel and convenient to a range of southern highland destinations but a peaceful spot. Facilities were fine, hot water, warm house - shame the aga wasn't working though. Owner was very friendly and helpful throughout (replaced batteries in a remote immediately). Fine for our small dog - might be an issue for a larger animal in the absence of a utility room.

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Etive cottage is the perfect base to explore Glen Coe from, extremely comfortable and cosy. We were up at the Ice Factor in Kinlochleven for a few days our stay, we'd come to Glen Coe to do some winter walking and climbing, and although the snow didn't show until we left, we still had a marvellous time exploring the area. The cottage is well equipped, warm and felt like home almost immediately, we had a lovely welcome from the owner Stella, who recommended a few good pubs and restaurants to try, we visited the Clachaig Inn a few times and throughly enjoyed the food and live music in the Boots Bar. There's a village shop a stones throw from the cottage, it has literally everything you could possibly need, from firewood to wine. We unfortunately had to leave a day early due to work commitments, it was quite a rench to leave this little gem of a place, I made my husband promise we'd return.....which he did, and I can't wait!

Great Exploration Base

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is in a great location right in the heart of the village of Glencoe. The house is small but comfortable, fitted out nicely for a group of 4 plus a dog. The property is fenced which was nice for our Lab. It is just a few steps from the village shop, a nicely provisioned grocery with most of what we needed for the week (nice whisky selection as well). Just down the road is the Coe river perfect for walks and dips in the chilly water. There is a pub and cafe in the village (2 minute walk) and several more just short hikes (25-30 minute walks) away. The property has reliable internet which was fantastic for completing several work related video conferences, one lasting over 2 hours with 15 participants- no problems.

Overall, a great base for exploring this wonderful area. We will be coming back again.
