“Charming Hideaway in the Highlands”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The cottage is situated at Loch Leven between Glencoe Village and Ballachulish, a perfect starting point for exploring Glencoe Valley and the West Coast. The A82 runs right in front of the cottage, but you don't hear much of the noise since the bedroom windows are to the rear. from the living/dining room area you have an amazing view of Loch Leven. The cottage is well equipped, tidy and cosy. Shops, a supermarket, tourist information, pubs, cafés, post office etc. are all within less than 5 minutes. We enjoyed our stay at stone cottage 2 very much and recommend it to everyone!

“What you see is what you get”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We have a wide and varied experience of self-catering holiday accommodation and this was up there with the best. It's a stone cottage in stunning surroundings and there are facilities for the outdoor type or the 'tour and relax' type.
The cottage is easy to locate and is an excellent base for trips north or south. The local area has some pleasant walks and the view from the cottage is 'picture postcard'. A main road runs along outside which might put some people off, but if you're using Stone Cottage as a base, you'll be too tired to notice passing traffic. Local villages to either side are only a few minutes walk and the Glencoe Inn is excellent if you fancy treating yourself.
One tip - be aware that an occasional passer-by may decide to use the refuse bins to deposit their litter. The cottage bins are specific for recycling/non-recycling, but any lazy person who passes will not take note of the contents. It only happened once during our week but I spotted it and dealt with it.
What you see is what you get - a tidy, comfortable modernised cottage in a beautiful location. Value for money - most certainly. Would we go back - yes.

Liked best: Location. Whether for staying local, or as a base for touring.
Liked least: Bedroom windows could do with net curtain or blinds. Overlooked by next door when they were using their car.

“Perfect!”

Really great little cottage with all we (three old, and getting older friends) needed for a weekend in the hills.

Facilities are excellent, especially the living room and kitchen, and the side entrance is great for getting out of wet (it is the highlands!) gear.

Oh, and despite what guides may say, we made it home from the Clachaig in 45 mins with a brisk walking pace (helped by a few pints in has to be said!).

Would definately recommend a visit to the pub and the cottage

“Basic but cosy cottage”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The Stone cottage was a good base to explore Glen Coe from. The cottage was comfortable but we feel it could be improved even further to reflect the lovely stone image of it from the outside. Everything you needed for your stay was provided and the lounge in particular provided a cosy place to relax in by the log burner after a full day's hiking!!

Thank you for the last minute booking and allowing us to stay in your cottage.
