Inside the cottage is warm and welcoming with splashes of Scottish charm throughout. The sitting room has comfy, cosy seating around a raised wood-burning stove with useful log storage underneath and is L-shaped to a spacious dining area. There is also a modern kitchen with plenty of space for cooking and lovely views out over the surrounding mountains can be found from most of the windows.
The cottage is all on one level, with the bedrooms lying off a central hallway. There is a beautifully presented double room, a neat twin room and a bunk room with full-size bunk beds. There is also a family bathroom with bath and large walk-in shower, as well as a handy separate WC.
Outside, parking is in the wide, shared driveway right beside the door. There is a walled garden area to the front and to the rear the garden tails off into the landscape beyond with a small, rocky stream (care to be taken).
It is just a short stroll along to the bar and restaurant at the King’s House Hotel, believed to be one of Scotland’s oldest licensed inns.
A walking/off road cycling route (part of the West Highland Way) starts from behind the hotel and leads up a zig-zag track known as the Devil’s Staircase to the summit, from which there are magnificent views. It then heads all the way down to Kinlochleven, about 9 miles in total.
The Glencoe Mountain Resort (2 miles) is practically on the doorstep, offering skiing and snowboarding in the winter and mountain biking trails in the summer months. Glencoe village (11.5 miles) has a shop and a PO and just outside there are incredibly picturesque walks to be had around Glencoe Lochan, with 3 different trails for varying abilities (one wheelchair accessible).
The Dragon’s Tooth Golf Course at Ballachulish welcomes visitors with its ‘pay and play’ system and the Scottish Segway Centre also has a site based there. They run guided segway tours where you can zip around private tracks whilst taking in the beautiful surrounding scenery. They also offer archery, laser clay pigeon shooting, bike hire and even electric bike hire. The bridge from Ballachulish leads across to Onich and up to Fort William (28 miles) where there are plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a leisure centre and boat trips out on Loch Linnhe.
The surrounding area is strewn with Corbetts and Munros, or for more of a challenge the famous Ben Nevis (35 miles) can be reached in under an hour. As the highest mountain in the British Isles it is quite a trek to climb and walkers must be prepared for all conditions. If you don’t fancy tackling the mountain itself, the nearby Nevis Range Ski Centre has more winter sports and a gondola that goes up to the Witch’s Trails mountain biking routes.
Heading south from the cottage there is a lovely viewpoint that looks out over Loch Tulla (be sure to have your camera to hand). Bridge of Orchy (12.5 miles) has a train station and a hotel restaurant that is a good spot to stop for lunch or dinner. 6 miles past the hotel, there is a bridge that crosses the River Orchy where adrenalin seekers can have a go at bridge swinging!
