Holiday Rental House
Stone Cottage is located between Glencoe and Ballachulish villages (5 minute walk to each). An ideal location for all outdoor enthusiasts. Climbing, walking, fishing, golf and watersports are all a short distance away. The cottage has a beamed ceiling in the living room. Light the log burning stove, curl up with a glass of wine and relax in the warmth whilst watching the boats bobbing on the water. In line with our policy to always improve our cottages, in December 2018 we are installing high quality double glazing in our cottages with the ability to reduce eternal noise down to a minimum, to help ensure all our guests enjoy the peace and quiet.

Can you spot the deer in the woodlands? or will they wander down into the main garden to feed? (please note that there are open waterways in the garden - due to part of it being woodland - children should be supervised at all times. Unfortunately we do not accept children under 5.)

Cosy cottage in great location
We had a great stay at Stone Cottages in Ballachulish. We wanted somewhere that was easily acessible as we visited in winter and thought side roads may be snowy/icy. The cottage is at the side of a main road but we didnt have a problem with noise, in fact we found it to be in a perfect location to explore the Ben Nevis and Glencoe ranges. The cottage was clean, tidy and well equipped. The view across Loch Leven was beautiful and the log burner made the cold January nights really cosy. Sue was a great host and more than happy to help when required. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Amazing find
We’ve just returned from a short break at Stone Cottage 2 and already looking forward to booking again. What a gorgeous cottage, everything we needed. The house was spotless on arrival, couldn’t fault it at all. We loved sitting by the log burner at night looking out onto the Loch. Only a few minutes walk to Glencoe and Ballachulish. It was a great base for visiting the surrounding areas. We headed to Oban, Fort William, The Nevis Range, Glenfinnan Viaduct, and Fort Augustus. Amazing scenery all around. Can’t wait to return.

Great base for exploring
The cottage was in an excellent location for hiking, strolling into town/market and watching sailors. Although there was a lot of traffic on the A82 it wasn't particularly audible or distracting to us inside and there were plenty of breaks to walk across the road. Everything in the cottage was well organized and set up perfectly for us. We had beautiful weather and were outside much of the time, plenty of exploring nearby without having to get back into the car. Plenty of hot water for the shower and an excellent washer/dryer that we put to use.

Great location! Very quaint and would highly recommend.
Great accommodation and location. Absolutely as described. Very much enjoyed the amenities. Cottage is central for the West Highlands and therefore an excellent base for Oban, Isle of Mull, Glen Coe and Fort William (i.e. easily drive-able). If were to return to Scotland in future, would definitely seek availability of this accommodation.

Stone cottage 2
Ballachulish is a wonderful place easily located for a drive to Glencoe, Kyle of Lochalsh and Isle of Skye. We found a lovely place stone cottage 2. Sue the host was amazing and quick to respond given that our booking was late at night and she was traveling herself. She gave us useful pointers that helped throughout. Stone cottage itself was a delightful place. Warm and cozy, it offered us a home away from home. The kitchen is well set and all amenities are available for cooking which we did during evenings and mornings. There is a lovely collection of games and dvds. My seven year old was suitably occupied while we chatted and observed the view from the windows of the busy club right in front. The rooms were well provided and lovely. Overall we had an amazing time at this beautiful place. Thank you Sue.

Thank you so much for your review. Catherine who you met, said that you were a lovely family. Its just a shame we could not accommodate you for longer. Its good to hear you enjoyed the DVDs and games. The view (I have to admit) is good. The view across the loch is spectacular. I hope you make another return trip again soon.
