“What a wonderful cottage; amazing.” Set in its own bit of heaven, on arrival Kate made us feel like old friends greeted with a lovely smile and a delightful lemon drizzle cake. The cottage was spotless but at the same time allowed you to feel totally relaxed. Never mind the rain, we had a fantastic time . Castles to visit , lochs to take trips on, distilleries to float around and a wonderful trip to Skye.
“Great cottage in beautiful environment” What a great place to stay in the middle of nature and nearby the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. Numerous hikes and daytrips in the area, a beautiful loch at the doorstep and all facilities you can wish are in the cottage itself available. Not to forget the lochleven fish restaurant as neighbour.
“Your own magical place in the Highlands” From the moment you reach the gate to the property you know that you are somewhere special. Driving up the windy track through your own wood is fantastic with the children looking for glimpses of the cottage.
Once at the top of the drive the feeling of space, privacy and remoteness is absolutely wonderful, together with more woods at the rear of the property to explore and large grass areas for ball games.
The views to the mountains in the distance are great and the sound of silence is a fantastic way to unwind.
Coille Diobhain is a beautiful cottage with loads of character and has everything there that you could wish for to make your stay feel like a home from home.
The new sun lounge really adds to the feeling of space and has views all around towards the distant mountains and garden and woods.
The kids loved going to the woodstore at the top of the garden to get some logs for the wood burner fire.
We had two curious sheep on the land while we were there which often came to the sun lounge windows in the evening, to watch the television maybe.
We also saw hares in the garden together with bats in the evening and even some mischievous crows that kept tapping on the windows.
The perimeter of the property is securely fenced off so it is great for the children
to be able to roam about and explore.
The cottage is in a great position for local walks for which there are many and also for getting out and touring, for which if you want to explore you need to drive approx an hour to reach places like silver sands of morar,Caingormes, Glen Coe, Loch Ness for which the Rib boat trip is awsome.
All in all if you are looking for a cottage with lots and lots of space that is away from the hustle and bustle of daily life then it will not disappoint, the only problem is you have to leave.
Would definitely recommend and when we visit this part of the country again would love to come back to Coille Diobhain.
