Holiday Rental House
Built originally in the 18th Century, Stone Cottage provides magnificent views across Loch Leven, whilst the rear facing bedrooms provide scenic woodland views over the cottage grounds, which are close to one acre in size and include a stream and open waterways. The cottage is a short stroll away from both Glencoe and Ballachullish villages, as well as being a few hundred yards for the popular gift and coffee shop 'Crafts and Things' which is an ideal place to relax and enjoy a leisurely breakfast or sample a fine selection of refreshments after your invigorating day out in the mountains.

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. New external doors are also being installed. More

Interaction with guests
To help make it easier when you arrive. We operate a key safe policy, so you are able to let yourselves in anytime from 4pm. We feel, this takes pressure off guests when they are driving to our cottages, as they do not feel as if they have to arrive at an expected time. We want you to enjoy the scenery. During your stay, if you do have any questions or require assistance, then it is possible to contact either myself or our local contact.
