It has been fully updated, with a modern kitchen, and new bathroom, it is spotless. TV, Wifi connection, you name it, we've got it. We try very hard for our guests but there are three possible issues. The cottage is not suitable for wheelchairs, but the bannisters may help up the stairs for people with walking difficulty. We took out the coal fire because it was too much trouble for guests, messy, and took too long to heat up.Around the cottage you are surrounded by mountains, sea lochs, and the walks are for every level of fitness and ability. There are spectacular views along the coast, up the hills, around the bays. The best Glencoe hotel is five minutes walk away for bar meals, and an indoor swimming pool. Evening entertainment in Glencoe itself. Glencoe has the most spectacular walks and the most dramatic mountains. It has everything you need for your holiday. Fancy climbing Ben Nevis? 35 minutes away. The wildlife begins outside the back door and in the bay. Otters in the bay, Sea eagles overhead. Fishing, two minutes walk. Golf five minutes' drive. Clubs can be hired there. Cycle the special track along the coast which passes just beyond our back garden. Take a boat trip to see the Whales. Take your skis to Glencoe Mountain. Climb a couple of Munroes, 3,000 foot mountains, one grows out of our garden. White water canoeing on the River Etive. Or do very little, just enjoy. Have a drive.Just amble around doing very little as most guests do. Get up late, coffee at Crafts and Things, 4 minute ferry trip to Ardamurchan then the Isle of Mull for lunch at Tobermory. Afternoon tea overlooking the famous Stalker castle. You can let the youngsters play in our little Highland Garden, totally safe. From our cottage you can drive to Inverness and back in a day, drive to the Isle of Skye and back, drive to Edinburgh, Loch Lomond and back in a day. History is deeply embedded in Glencoe.Shops and so on.Very well stocked local supermarket open 7am- 10pm ,5 minutes' drive. The Highland towns of Fort William and Oban are each 30 minutes away with, supermarkets, shops, plus ferry trips to the Isles, things to do in the wet, leisure centres, swimming pools. But take care. Glencoe is a magnetic place. People come back year after year, and never run out of new things to do.More

About the neighbourhood
MICRO CLIMATE IN KENTALLEN The weather. We are fortunate in Kentallen because we have a micro climate here. The rain clouds come in from the West, and dump the water in Glencoe itself over the hill from us. In Winter, when Glencoe is blocked with snow, you will hardly find any in Kentallen. Ours is the escape route. The Gulf Stream looks after us. WALKS, OTTERS, SEALS, CORMORANTS, EAGLES 20 of the most spectacular walks in the Scottish Highlands are around the cottage area. From strenuous hill climbing, to a quiet stroll in the forest at Glencoe lochan or a meander around Cuil Bay. Look at the photos which were taken by our guests. You can look for the otter family in the Bay. (They are near the pier. Watch quietly). The Sea Eagles fly in from Mull, and we have proper eagles in Glencoe i...
