“Beautiful Rural Gem”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at Coille Diobhain in August 2015. The property is well placed to explore the highlands around Fort William. It was well equipped, clean and comfortable. The views from the property are fantastic. Kids loved the deer who paid us a visit everyday.

“So happy to have found this cosy, rural gem”
Reviewed August 16, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent a week at Coille Diobhain and had a fantastic time. The cottage is very well equipped and very comfy cosy and you really do get the best of both worlds - the quaintness of the original cottage and the modern sun room extension where you can sit and watch the clouds roll across the mountains or the deer foraging in the garden. The secluded location and stunning views make this a great place to get away from it all - on the other hand it is within easy reach of many of the highlands best tourist attractions. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying a stay in this delightful cottage.

Cannot fault our stay, views were stunning and the cottage was ideal, well fitted, comfortable and warm. I would like rot keep it a secret but the owner deserves to be fully booked!

“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed November 29, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We have just come back from a week here. This place is perfet to just get away from it all. If u want to be in the hustle and bustle then It's not for you. THe pictures of he views just don't do them justice. Amazing, especially when snuggled up by the log burning stove. The cottage has every thing you need and is kept to a high standard of cleanliness. Cannot recommend this place enough.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed September 9, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I stayed in the Coille Diobhain with some friends for couple of nights during Christmas Holidays 2013/2014. The house is very cosy and comfortable to live. We loved it a lot especially the new extension with a fire place and superb views across the mountains. The property is located in a quiet place but the road to the house is very good and it is only 20 min to Fort William. The area near the house is beatiful with some walks starting literally on the door. Famouse Parallel Roads of Glen Roy are just 5 min drive from the house. The owners are very easy to coomunicate and very nice. They left us some welcoming treats:) The only difficulty we had is finding the keys but we came to the house in the dark.

“Views To Die For and Excellent Accomodation”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Great place to stay with lovely surroundings in a beautiful location with nature on your doorstep and lots to do locally within 20mins drive. The house is very comfortable and well maintained with all mod cons at hand. The owner is excellent to deal with and is very helpful. We spend a fabulous week in the house even made better by the great weather.The village Shop in Roy Bridge has a very nice Coffee Shop. Can’t wait to go back in the future. Thanks again Alex

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed at Coille Diobhain with my wife and two daughters (ages 12 and 13) during the first week of July. It seemed to rain a little each day but we also had periods of sun and spectacular beauty. Coming from New Mexico, we loved the fact that it was cool and green there.

My wife, daughters, and I absolutely loved the cottage and the area. The cottage feels very secluded although there are many things to do close by. For example, we saw the Harry Potter train, went on a hike, visited Loch Ness, visited Glen Coe and Glen Nevis, went to the Glen Nevis whisky distillery, and went to the Glengarry Highland Games. We also read while enjoying the amazing views. We also watched some DVDs that are found in the cottage, although we had to watch them in the bedroom because we couldn't get the DVD player in the living room to work (I'm not sure if we were just doing something wrong).

The cottage itself is extremely well-maintained and comfortable. The owners clearly take good care of it and make sure that it is well equipped for visitors. I highly recommend this cottage for anybody who wants to visit the western Scottish highlands.

Liked best: The location cannot be beat
Liked least: I found some dog hairs in the cottage. I would prefer staying in a place that doesn't allow pets. That being said, it was not very bad. The owners just need to be cautious about allowing pets or it could get dirty.
