“A truly excellent cottage accommodation set in wonderful surroundings”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2013

A fantastic base for all that there is so see in and around the Highlands. The cottage is equipped to a high standard. The minute you walk through the door you have that lovely homely feeling. The surrounding scenery is amazing. It' was also very nice that we were able to take our family dog along with us. We really did just fall in LOVE with the place.

“Fantastic home away from home at Coille Diobhain”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2013

Five adult ladies stayed at Coille Diobhain and loved every minute. The cottage itself has every amenity that one could want, it was a home away from home. We used it as a base and toured Fort William, Oban, The Isle of Skye (lunching at The Three Chimmney's) as well as walking the surrounding cottage grounds. We traveled from the U.S. and were delighted with the comfort the cottage has to offer. We would stay here again. The owner was very easy to work with. The was a book listing all the tourist information one could wish for including restaurants etc. This gets an A+. N. Parr

“Great cottage in fabolous surrounding”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2013

We've stayed in this cottage for a week (10-08-2013 17-08-2013) And we really had a great week, the cottage has everything you need and the view from the sunroom is just perfect. There is absolutuly nothing that we've missed in the cottage during our stay, games, dvd's information about the region etc. We did a lot of exploring during our stay, we walked to the ice age landscape wich was very nice and quite. Loch ness was also on our to do list but that was a bit to touristic for us, the Jacobite train was just brilliant !! This is something you really should do. After all the exploring and sightseeing it was very nice coming "home" to Coille Diobhain ! All together a stay we will remember and that's absolutely recommandable.

“if you are thinking about booking this cottage - just do it!”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2013

I spent a lot of time researching the internet to find a holiday cottage for 2 weeks near Fort William. My choice of Coille Diobhain was a fantastic location to spend our holiday. The cottage is set in ancient oak woodland just a mile up a very quiet lane from Roy Bridge. As soon as we arrived at the gate leading up to the property, we all knew that we had arrived somewhere very special. As you drive up the track through the woods, the house appears ahead of you and sits wonderfully in it's surroundings. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs (a double and a twin) and a double and a single downstairs. The new sunroom is a great space and really adds the 'wow' factor to the cottage as it had a fab large screen tv with blue ray player and sound bar. There are 2 really comfy leather sofas and a very modern wood burning stove (plenty of wood in the barn). The sunroom also contains lots and lots of dvd's, board games (try Ingenious - we loved it), and laminated maps (1/25000) of the area plus a plethora of books on Scotland. There was very good free internet access and a phone to take incoming calls. We never got a mobile signal at the cottage but found a good spot behind the house up on the hill (5 mins walk) if we needed to phone out. There is a well stocked kitchen with very modern appliances and a utility area with drier and large fridge freezer. There is also a useful front porch with lots of hanging space for wet coats and even a dehumidifier. We had a great time exploring the Glen which is accessible by car or on foot and the Parallel Roads are amazing. We saw a host of wildlife in the garden and surrounding area. Deer were spotted most days and there are lots of hares in the area. For things to do, the area is a delight and we still didn't do all we wanted in 2 weeks (good excuse to come back!). Highlights were climbing Ben Nevis, dolphin watching at Inverness, train trip to Mallaig, mackerel fishing at Fort William, the white sands of Morar, the Steall Falls walk, mountain bike hire at the Ben Nevis Centre and many others (some further away by car using Tesco rewards were really good too). There are also books on local walks in the cottage and laminated sheets that you can take with you. Roy Bridge village is just down the road and has a very pleasant and well stocked shop and we ate in the Roy Bridge hotel one night which was very tasty. Fort William is 20 mins away by car (easy drive) and has lots of shops including a Morrisons and Lidl for your 'big' shop when you arrive. To sum up, if you are looking for a holiday cottage with the most amazing views (they are just awesome and no photo gives the mountains justice) which is very private, spacious and clean plus is in a great location for seeing the local area then book this one. I would also like to add that Ruari made the whole booking really easy and the information that he supplied before we arrived was really excellent. We all had a very happy holiday and were sad to leave including Tinky the dog who had a lovely time too.

“Your own magical place in the Highlands”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2013

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.

“Perfect Highlands Retreat”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2013

My family of seven stayed at Coille Diobhain for four nights - wished we could have stayed longer! We loved sitting in the newly completed family room, which has enormous picture windows that look onto Ben Nevis. We watched the changing moods of the weather as clouds would roll in and out again. Stunning views of Ben Nevis when clear. The house is about a mile up a lane from the village of Roy Bridge (about 25-30 minute drive from Fort William), and is a nice balance between being near town and out in the country. We took several walks along the lane, and saw rabbits, foxes, and of course - sheep! If you cycle, this would be a wonderful place to bring your bikes, as the road/lane is lightly traveled and goes several miles into the countryside. The house was very clean and the beds comfortable. The welcome basket with goodies was an unexpected and lovely treat. Just Perfect!

“Very comfortable accommodation in a peaceful setting with beautiful views”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2013

Well equipped spacious accommodation with plenty of homely touches. We received excellent communication from the owner, with lots of helpful advice about the cottage, and the immediate area, emailed through in advance. There were further information packs at the cottage making it easy to plan outings. It's well placed and easy to get to all the local sites and attractions - the views from the sun lounge are lovely. It's peacefully situated but within easy reach of amenities and Fort William. The whole area is beautiful and we ran out of time to do it all but will mention the steam train to Mallaig; it's better to book in advance as it can get very busy. The gondola is also great as there are tremendous views from 2 easy walks at either end if you get good weather (or a heat wave as we had!). Missing it already....

“Fantastic location, excellent facilities, great value for money.”

We really enjoyed our stay, the surrounding area is breathtakingly beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay.

“Clean, cosy, well equipped with acres of space and marvellous views.”

Reviewed 5 Nov 2012

Just as all the other reviews have said, this is a lovely clean and well equipped cottage with fabulous views. It has more than adequate heating for those chilly Scottish nights, even electric blankets on some beds. The grounds are well secured so no problems letting the dog out for a good mooch around but the track up to the cottage would be dicey in the snow. Good selection of DVDs and games although maybe a few more PG or U certificated ones might be needed for younger children. All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable 5 days away, our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay for longer.


Reviewed 31 Oct 2012

We were seeking a quite tranquill location but couldn't have imagined the views surrounding this holiday cottage. Just perfect. With our dog ,affording ample and safe 'running' area. The cottage itself was delightfully appointed with everything we could have wished for. It was a delightful stay at a convenient and pleasant location
