This spacious house is great for socialising as the main living accommodation is open plan with a full height ceiling and the seating, kitchen and dining areas all in together. The one wall made almost entirely of glass and the sliding glass doors allow light in and the rural location to be fully appreciated. Once a fire is crackling away in the wood-burning stove a lovely warm ambience is created that is particularly welcoming to return to after days spent exploring the great outdoors.
The smart, modern kitchen is equipped with everything needed and more with the dining area alongside by the window and handy additional seating at the breakfast bar. A sleek shower room and a large double bedroom are also laid out downstairs.
Upstairs the glass balustrades around the mezzanine level add to the feeling of space and show off the feature lighting above the living area. The bright bedroom upstairs has a double bed and a single bed that makes it ideal for families and there is a shower room with a walk-in shower on this level.
Parking is provided in the gravelled area right by the front door and the grassed garden that is bordered by trees is shared with the adjoining property Am Bothan. Larger parties may wish to book both properties in order to holiday together but still have separate space and privacy.
The path that leads up Sgorr na Ciche (known as the Pap of Glencoe) is just by the driveway so it can be tackled straight from the door. The route up the mountain on the Aonach Eagach ridge is quite rough but those reaching the summit are rewarded with sublime views of the surrounding mountains and lochs.
With over 40 different munros (peaks over 3,000 feet in height) to choose from in easy reach, walkers and climbers will have plenty of chances to add to the tally of munros they have ‘bagged’. The West Highland Way passes nearby at Altnafeadh where the famous view of Buachaille Etive Mòr can be admired and the section of the route known as the ‘Devil’s Staircase’ zig-zags steeply upwards.
It is less than 5 minutes’ drive to Glencoe village where there is a small shop to pick up groceries at and a hotel restaurant to pop into for lunch or dinner. Food is served all day at the well-known Clachaig Inn (1.5 miles) and their bars have an impressive range of over 400 different whiskies for those looking to try a dram or two.
The Glencoe Mountain Resort (12 miles) offers 20 runs for skiing and snowboarding in winter as well as downhill tubing and mountain biking trails in the summer months. A little further afield at the Nevis Range Mountain Resort (23 miles) the gondola makes light work of the ascent up to the ski slopes.
There is a small supermarket in Ballachulish (2 miles) or Fort William (17 miles) is the place to head to for further shopping. Over the Ballachulish bridge at the Pixel Spirits Distillery (4.5 miles) tasty gins and rums are produced with a real highland influence. They also run gin and rum school experiences with distillery tours and the chance to try hands-on distilling using a mini copper still.
