The welcome was as warm as can be, the breakfast is wonderful, the room was small but clean and comfortable with everything we needed. I'll come back for sure, I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Glencoe!

The Fern Villa is in Bellaculish, a small village five minutes driving from Glencoe on the main road. It's in a quiet road with parking space. You can walk to a restaurant, to a fish&chips place, to a large tourist information office and to an interesting heritage quarry. We had room five, which is a small ensuite double downstairs, as...

Thank you for taking time to leave a review and that you enjoyed your time with us. We have since replaced the light fitting in the bedroom so it is now a bit brighter. The herrings have been going like hot cakes so a visit to the fish monger in Oban is imminent. We hope you see you again sometime.

Thank you for leaving us a review. You will be pleased to hear that we have bought new light fittings for the room, it is a 5 bulb chandelier so should be nice and bright, placing a bulk order with LedHut for the bulbs so it isn't installed yet. Also on our annual trip to Glasgow we went into Ikea...

Easy to find from instructions, friendly welcome and very helpful regarding finding somewhere to eat on a busy Saturday evening. Pleasant room, very comfy bed ensured a good sleep. Lovely breakfast set us up for a day walking in the spectacular Glen Coe area. Would definitely return.

Very nice welcome, well situated for most things. And to have a champion porridge maker cook breakfast is a worthwhile experience. The customer service was excellent, the price was very good, and I won't hesitate to use it again

We stayed here for three nights. The rooms are small with added on bathroom areas. The price is very reasonable, so don't expect an upscale B&B. However, David, the host and cook, was wonderful and shared so much local knowledge with us. He gave us ideas for hiking and he cooks a very good breakfast. My husband even tried the...

Very relaxed atmosphere, room & ensuite bathroom nice and clean. The best porridge in the morning and a very enthousiast story telling house lord. We were lucky enough to stay two nights. We would definitely advise this B&B to our family & friends.

I think you may have us a little muddled up with somewhere else. Our rooms only have either a double bed or two single beds, we don't have a family room. Though we do have a David!
