This property is located close to the shores of the breathtaking Loch Linnhe, where you can take part in a number of activities, such as kayaking, fishing and sailing. It is also popular with photographers because of its varied wildlife, such as seals, porpoises and golden eagles, and magnificent scenery and sunsets.

Keen cyclists will enjoy the Kentallen to Ballachulish cycle path which is part of the National Cycle Network. Or for those looking for something more leisurely, the pebble beach of Cuil Bay is only a short stroll away (1.2 miles) and the views of the mountains are spectacular. If you fancy seeing more of the sea loch, you could even take a cruise and enjoy the commentary. For a touch of history and beauty, either view or visit Castle Stalker (6.5 miles), a 15th Century keep standing proud on its tidal islet in Loch Linnhe (visits are limited and should be pre-booked).

If you fall in love with gorgeous Glencoe, head to the Highlands Titles Nature Reserve (1.5 miles) and bag yourself a small piece of land as a souvenir allowing you to become a Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe as well as helping to preserve this special place which is home to lots of wildlife from deer to pine martens.

Reviewed by Helen 11th May 2019

Comfortable, compact apartment in great location. Not for very tall people as its in the roof so low sloping ceilings in the bedroom and bathroom. High spec finish and lovely gardens. WiFi didnt work the week we were there unfortunately.

Reviewed by Owen 1st April 2019

We had very pleasant stay, the attic flat I would not take that again as the ceilings are so low I lost the count of how many times I bumped my head. Also had to kneel down to shower. Would not recommend to anyone near 6ft
