“A well equipped and maintained cottage in a beautiful rural location.”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Staying at Coille Diobhain has been an absolute pleasure. The cottage is charming and so perfectly equipped it makes your stay hassle free. We had great communication with the owner and the information pack sent seemed to answer every little question you could have had without going over the top. The area has so much to offer whatever the weather. We have visited this area annually (not our only holiday I may add) with friends for the past eight years and still have a list of things as long as your arm that we want to do. The kayaking and mountain biking in the area is so good that during our numerous visits over the past eight years I still haven't managed to fit in a trip to a distillery even though I have a great fondness for their product! I must manage my time better next year!

“Cool”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Driving up the mountain to the house was extraordinary. The directions spot on and the place spotless. Loved the breathtaking views and the little red deer that kept us company. The bedding superbly clean very warm. The fireplace room excellent we had the fire every night and looked forward to it after a long day of hiking Nevis and going on the Jacobite train. The house is perfectly located to enjoy a day out in any direction. The parrelels breathtaking.

“Superb Cottage in a fantastic location”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a magnificent cottage in a truly magical location overlooking Ben Nevis.
Every home comfort provided for a family of seven celebrating a Golden Wedding.
Set in its own grounds, accessed by a private road and offering comfort, seclusion with deer and superb views what more could you ask.
Four bedrooms furnished to a high standard, with a conservatory and wood burning stove to keep you occupied while viewing the wildlife and mountains.
A selection of books and DVD's together with WiFi and a wall mounted television caters for all of your needs.
Highly recommended and well worth a visit.
Definitely a holiday cottage you will want to return to.
Many many thanks from family Watkins, Southport.

“Beautiful Rural Gem”
Reviewed 1 September 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 16 August 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.

“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed 29 November 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.
