We've been coming to the area since 1991 but never stayed in Ballachulish before. Hubby saw the cottage and thought it a perfect base to explore for us , our 19 year old daughter and small dog.
The cottage itself is in a superb base. There's a well stocked Coop minutes away, a pub across the road, restaurant and chippy too. There's also a great eaterie situated within the tourist info centre , also a few moments way.
There's gorgeous views from the cottage too.The cottage itself is a perfect, home from home base. Bright sitting room with plenty of space, a well stocked breakfasting kitchen with every conceivable thing you would need to prepare meals ( this was my week off as chief cook so we dined out!).We had a spacious double bedroom with loads of storage plus an en suite. Our 19 year old had a twin room with the bonus of an en suite too - a luxury for a teenager and it kept her happy.
One bonus of this cottage is the owners were close to hand as they ran the b and b next door. We've never had that booking self catering before and it was definitely a bonus.
We received a warm welcome and were shown round the cottage and given pointers where to dine etc. The welcoming provisions were greatly appreciated too - a truly thoughtful touch.We celebrated my 50th birthday whilst up there and , hand on heart, it was perfect.
If you're looking for a really good base, not too busy, not too isolated that provides a real home from home, this place is the ticket. Just trying to see with Paul when we can go back.

We warmly recommend Neil's house: cosy, clean, well situated to discover the stunning views all around Glencoe. Neil was very concerned about our well-being, we are thankful about this.
Perfect for a family or friends. A warm welcome and great facilities.
Everything you need is in the village. Peace and quiet if you want it.
We enjoyed the walks both locally and further a field.
The cottage was extremely cozy and spacious at the same time. The sofas and beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was very spacious if you intend do some home dining. The cottage had plenty of entertainment - sky, internet and also had a real fire place. The front has a stunning view of the adjacent mountains, its a three minute walk to the the beautiful loch leven. Opposite is a first class bar/restaurant with amazing food and the bus stop is over the road meaning you can get to the wider area without any hassle. I'd certainly recommend to take a car to make the most of this area. Thanks to Neil and Katya for the excellent hospitality and all the advice for where to go/what to do.
