Six miles from historic Glencoe and sitting above Loch Leven with views onto the Mamore mountains, Garbhein Cottage is a traditional highland cottage built in the 19th century.

It used to be the house of the deer stalker on the Mamore estate, which hosted many famous guests including King Edward VII.

The cottage is perfect as a romantic hideaway, retreat space or base for outdoor sports and sight seeing, offering flexible accommodation to suit solo travelers, couples, families and friends.

The space
Garbhein Cottage combines traditional charm with modern luxury. The house has recently been renovated and has a high level of insulation to provide warmth and comfort.

The decor is light and bright and the views surrounding the cottage are beautiful.

Wild deer can sometimes be seen grazing on the hillside at the front, especially during winter when they come down the mountain to sleep.

The cottage has two bedrooms, each with a king size bed, and two bathrooms, one on each floor. The cottage comfortably accommodates 4 people. By prior arrangement a single bed can be brought in to the downstairs bedroom to add flexibility to the sleeping arrangements, though the the number of guests must not exceed 4.

There is a log burning stove, gas central heating and a combination boiler that provides instant hot water.

The brand new and well-equipped kitchen includes an oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine (but there is no tumble dryer).

The internet connection is excellent and there is a TV, DVD player and Bluetooth music system, which you can connect to other devices to play your own music. We also provide a selection of DVDs and CDs for your use.

We love this cottage and hope that you will enjoy staying here.

This is a place to come if you are looking for a peaceful holiday in a snug retreat amid the spectacular beauty of the Highlands.

Guest access
The entire cottage is yours for the duration of your stay.

Other things to note
For larger groups of family and friends you may wish to consider also renting The Byre, a one-bedroom cottage next door to Garbhein Cottage.

If you are coming with a baby or toddler, we will be very happy to provide you with a travel cot and high chair at no extra charge.

Guests are welcome to bring one dog, by prior arrangement - please get in touch before booking.

The water supply is mountain-fed from nearby streams and filtered and purified with a high tech UV system. The water is of course safe to drink and regularly inspected by Highland Council to ensure that it meets government safety standards.

Kinlochleven, Scotland, United Kingdom

Kinlochleven village is only a half mile away and has a number of pubs that do excellent bar food. There is a well stocked Co-op supermarket and, for a bigger shop, there is Morrisons supermarket in Fort William which is about 40 minutes away by car.

Kinlochleven is also home to 'The Ice Factor', the worlds largest indoor ice-climbing wall, which has a number of other indoor and outdoor climbing activities for all ages. It's a wonderful place, well worth a visit, whether active or not!

As the Outdoor Capital of the UK, the region of Lochaber is fantastic for all kinds of outdoor activities including hiking, sailing, skiing, ice-climbing and cycling. The ski resort of Glencoe is about 25 minutes' drive away, the Nevis ranges are about 45 minutes and both ski centres are open all year round for skiers and hikers. Boat trips to visit the islands and spot wildlife depart from Loch Leven and Loch Linnhe. A thirty mile radius from the cottage takes in Ben Nevis, the mountains of Glencoe, the Seal Sanctuary near Oban, Glenfinnan where Bonnie Prince Charlie gathered the clans in 1745 and the famous Harry Potter viaduct .... to name but a few.
