Pretty Lochside Cottage

Self Catering Cottages, Chalets & Lodges

Kentallen nr Ballachulish Argyll PA38 4BU | Contact Gillian Winkler

This has been our family-owned cottage for over 20 years. We all adore it for the beauty and the peace.  It has a double and a twin bedroom sleeping 4 people with all mod cons. Our website is packed with guests’ photographs and information. You absolutely MUST look at it.

The cottage area

It is such a beautiful area for outdoor activity, The cottage has a little highland garden with a 3,000 foot mountain growing out of it and is totally safe for youngsters. It lies in Kentallen between the glories of Glencoe and the beauty of Appin and the road is quiet. Put your boat in the bay, play on the little sandy beach, fish from the old pier, cycle on the newly laid track along the shore, eat a bar meal at the hotel – all within 400 yards, walking distance.

Fully re-furbished, modernised, new kitchen

The cottage has been re-furbished, with a new kitchen, new bathroom, even a computer available for guests’ use, and free web access. There is a drying room, bicycle storage under cover, golf clubs for guests to use, even left handed ones – we have tried to think of everything, games, books, Dvd player, all are there.  The nearest shop is two miles to the South, and the excellent Ballachulish shop is 3 miles to the East. The Highland towns of Fort William and Oban are roughly 30 minutes away, complete with their supermarkets.

See the website please.

Please look at our large web site for masses of useful Glencoe information, availability, price.

Our website is important for information on things to do around here, for gentle walks around the cottage, for hill and mountain walking, even up to rock and ice climbing, for cruises, for wild life, for castles and history, for touring by car, for things that youngsters can do, for skiing, for local weather,  and information on such things as The Glencoe Massacre, the Vikings, the MacDonalds, photography, it is all in the website. It shows the special offers and discounts we can get for our guests from local services.

There is a beautiful bay around the corner, called Cuil Bay. One of the most renowned castles, Stalker Castle, is just 10 minutes down the road.

This is what our guests do

You can do what our guests typically do. How about a walk up to the Hidden Valley in Glencoe, a day cruise to the Small Isles amongst the whales, or a wild life tour of Mull seeing sea eagles, or golf at the Dragons Tooth course, a walk up Ben Nevis, looking for the monster in Loch Ness, canoeing down the falls on the River Etive, swimming in the pool at Fort William, a trip on the Harry Potter train, a Land Rover tour of Glencoe, or just having a beer in the famous local Bar amongst the climbers, of Glencoe, of the Alps, of Everest.  So much to do.

This place is glorious.

ps E-mailing us is far far better, and quicker, than using the mobile phone.  We are often out of range and we need to get to the computer anyway to get any information. Look at the website and then email us, that is best. Honestly.
