A well-presented and cosy, semi-detached cottage in Kinlochleven, occupying an elevated position that allows for fabulous mountain views.

This Kinlochleven cottage enjoys a private yet convenient location and is ideal for two couples or a group of friends who want to embrace the great outdoors and soak up the stunning scenery that this area has in abundance.

There are two king-size double bedrooms, both with their own en-suite facilities.

The open plan living area at this Kinlochleven cottage has a well-equipped kitchen, a spacious dining area and a stylish sitting area with reclining sofas; perfect for relaxing in after a bracing Highland walk.

Sliding doors from the sitting area mean guests can gaze across to the towering mountains that form a fabulous backdrop to this Kinlochleven cottage.

    • “Everything you could possibly want when renting a holiday cottag”

    • “We had a very good time at The Steading Cottage, the house was very comfortable, left nothing to be desired. Two very comfortable en-suite bedrooms with very good beds, a very well equipped kitchen, a comfy lounge, a really nice place to stay. Kinlochleven is a pleasant village at the head of a very beautiful loch, Loch Leven, and everything you need for everyday life is available in the village, a Co-op store that sells you everything you need and has long opening hours, there is a small community house/village hall where you can find internet-facilities, a post office, information for walkers, etc. There are several places to go for breakfast, dinner or drinks. Kinlochleven is a very good starting place for hikers. The surrounding area is stunningly beautiful, with Glencoe just around the corner and Fort William not too far away, with Glen Nevis nearby, a beautiful valley at the foot of Ben Nevis, also an ideal place for hiking. There are so many places to go to, you really have a hard time choosing where to go and what to see. Do not take the Jacobite Steam train, we found it a great big disappointment. You would expect to see stunning countryside but mostly you get to see lots of trees blocking the view. Mallaig is a nice little town for a visit, it's much better to take the road from Fort William to Mallaig, much better views and you can stop and get out of the car and look around. We most emphatically did not like Oban, don't go there, unless you like the HideeHi-HideeHo atmosphere of old-fashioned holiday camps.(Butlin? forget the name). When driving to and from Kinlochleven take the road on the Southern side of the loch, far more beautiful than the road on the Northern side, simply drive on to Ballachulish and cross the bridge there to go to Fort William. We had a wonderful time, we can recommend this cottage without any hesitation.”

    • “Liked everything; it was all and more than we could expect, could not fault it or the owners.”

    Mr Bateman, King's Lynn, June 2015

    Mrs Matthews, Berwick-upon-Tweed, May 2015

    • “The owners were very welcoming, the property is in a lovely position and the village has everything that you might need.”

    Mr Huffey, Ipswich, March 2015

    • “Lovely property in great location near village centre, owners very friendly and helpful. Lounge with recliners extremely comfortable after long day, kitchen well equipped with everything you need for a holiday home. Plenty of space for a car parked around the side. Quiet, peaceful place to spend a few days relaxing with plenty of walks nearby.”

    Dr Nelson, Blairgowrie, October 2014

    • “The owners were very welcoming and the property was excellent. The location was ideal for touring round which was what we wanted to do and we even had good weather!”

    Mr Shaw, Nantwich, September 2014

    • “The property was absolutely superb with lovely owners who reside next door. The area has breathtaking scenery with the loch and hills. The climbing centre in the village is great for active people/kids and has a cafe within. Great base to travel to Glen Coe, Ballaculish, Oban and Fort William areas.”

    Mr Ronaldson, Edinburgh, August 2014

    • “The owners showed us around when we arrived and they were very friendly. The property was first class and luxurious. Warrants a 5 star status!”

    Mr Guy, Southampton, August 2014

    • “It was a lovely little home from home. A really nice area and quite relaxing. Some great walks around the local area with quite spectacular views but within easy driving distance of bigger attractions, such as Ben Nevis Range, Fort William and Glencoe.”

    Mrs Higgins, Mansfield, February 2014

    • “Excellent cottage in a nice village. The owners live next door and were extremely good.”
