    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We found the apartment to be spacious, warm, comfortable, immaculately decorated and spotlessly clean. It was great base for our winter week in the Highlands, with mountain paths running just behind the garden, and its very peaceful - the only noises we could hear were birds and waterfalls. The kitchen is fully equipped to cook proper meals, which is nice, and the place felt like home for a week. I'd thoroughly recommend it.”

    • “Very warm welcome from owners to a very clean and spacious apartment. The bathroom was big with a great power shower. The kitchen/diner/lounge was ideal with great views and added light in kitchen via velux windows. If I was being picky I would say the bed was showing its age, but that would not stop us from staying again.”

    • “A warm, spacious and comfortable retreat from the rain”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The Steading apartment was a lovely, warm, comfortable retreat from the almost continuous rain we had during our stay, with beautiful views of the mountaintops, covered in snow during the time we were there. The owners greeted us on arrival, and had catered for our every need. The immediate area has lovely walks right out of the door, and the surrounding area is just glorious. Kinlochleven is within easy reach of so many 'must visit' places - Fort William, Ben Nevis, Glencoe and further afield. As seafood lovers, the highlight of our week was the Loch Leven Shellfish company just down the road, where we bought the freshest mussels, crabs and scallops that we have ever eaten. We can't wait to return to this beautiful area, and wonder if the waterfalls will be quite as spectacular on our next visit.”

    • “The apartment was easily located, we were met and warmly welcomed by the owner. The apartment was in excellent condition, very clean and warm. We walked directly from the door onto a footpath giving access to the mountains. After a cold,wet day of walking the shower and endless hot water was brilliant. A well appointed kitchen made for easy preparation of evening meals. Just more sunshine would have made for the perfect short break.”

A lovely apartment, spacious and full of character, set at the foot of the hills with a scenic walk and waterfalls to enjoy. The loch itself makes for great photo oppertunities no matter what the weather. We will certainly consider rating there again.”

    • “Different”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Host and hostess not prepared to put themselves out for us! We travelled 281 miles for our stay, paid for full week and due to family committments could only travel on the monday late afternoon. 3 hours into our journey we were contacted by them and told to find overnight accommodation as they were not prepared to wait for us to arrive, we were an hour away!!! We asked them to leave a key, but they said no!!! We had to sleep that night in the car, in a car park as we could not get any accomodation!!! To add insult to injury we were told they could not meet us with key until 12:30 the next day !! Strange way to run a business!! We got them to reluctantly meet us at 10:00am !! To our further dismay, whe we asked what to do with key when we left we were told to 'leave it in the door as there was no crime in Kinlochleven' !!! Double standards, as the could not leave key indoor for our arrival!! I look forward to your comments and have also put this complaint in writing Spoken to an operative when booking my next break for november but all seems to have fallen on deaf ears !!!”

    • “The apartment is like a home-from-home for us. We love staying here, having been for the last 5 years in a row. The scenery is gorgeous and we never get tired of looking at it through the windows. It's also very peaceful and quiet. We still have plenty of places to see and things to do in the area.”

    Mrs Fisher, Preston, September 2015
