Whilst at the rear, you can sit out in the private patio area across woodland, and try to spot the deer which come down to feed in the early evening.
The patio is an ideal suntrap in summer, and receives the sun for most of the day.
Car parking is available at the rear of the cottage.
Rental price includes bed linen, towels, electricity, heating (on 3 times a day), Wi-fi and a basket of wood for the log burner.
The final clean is also included in the price, but naturally we request that you leave the cottage clean and tidy.
Due to the age of the cottage, the outside patio areas and steps are made from slate. In poor weather, these can be slippy. Therefore the cottage is unsuitable for young children or those that have restricted mobility.

"A cosy warm house in very nice surroundings"
Stone Cottage is a very nice house between Ballachulish and Glencoe, Scotland. Very well equiped, with a friendly atmosphere. We had a good time with mixed weather, in the direct surroundings you can walk on an easy and a difficult level. It's located at a (in daytime rather busy) road (that's the only disadvantage), but therefore you can go everywhere. We did a lot of trips, walking and by car. When the weather is fine, you have a direct view on perfect sunsets.

"Cosy cottage, excellent location, great value."
We had a great wee break in Stone Cottage 1. Ideal location just on the edge of Glencoe Village and 20 mins drive from the ski resort. The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Just wish we could have stayed a little longer.

"Cracking cottage on the edge of Glen Coe village"
I had a fantastic four days staying in the cottage.
I had booked my stay at short notice and was given clear booking instructions from the owner. This made the process painfree and straightforward.
When i arrived at the cottage, i found everything as explained in my welcome email. I w as pleasantly surprised to find logs and kindling sticks waiting for me. The a coronation was spotless and comfortable, just what i needed after a day walking.
The location was perfect for me, just on the edge of Glen Coe village. There is a local shop and a garage almost on your doorstep that provides all the basic essentials.
I would definitely recommend staying at the cottage.
