  • "The property is supposed to sleep 10, we originally booked for 9."

    3 people had to drop out but this was fortunate as it would have been extremely difficult for 7 to have shared the only other bathroom, apart from the en-suite. We could not all have eaten at the dining table and there wasn't enough cutlery. No teaspoons or bottle opener. Very comfortable beds and bedding but the pillows weren't. Loads of towels but no tea towels. I paid nearly £4,000 for this week and don't feel the quality of the accommodation was value for money. We enjoyed our week but have stayed in many Airbnbs in this country and abroad and feel the standard was much higher in their accommodation. The cover was left off the outside cushions so they were soaked when we arrived. We left them out to dry and put them back under cover properly for the next visitors. The sliding door didn't open which meant we couldn't fully enjoy the lounge and had to trek though the kitchen and around the side to get to the hot tub. The place was generally a bit tired and didn't feel luxurious. Quite disappointed really and feel a bit ripped off.

  • "The holiday house was very well equipped with all that was needed."

    The road adjacent to the hot tub and front of the house was quite busy felt that the hot tub would have been a bit more private if it had a higher fence just where the hot tub was situated. Very comfortable and lovely house we had a family gathering and would recommend a stay - the area is of great beauty and scenery beautiful. Recommend taking repellent for insects - ie midges they really were the only nuisance in June.

  • "Lovely property with hot tub and sauna, only we weren’t advised that we had to book to use the sauna."

    Other than that this is a great property and we had a fantastic stay.

The property

Enjoying glorious views of the countryside in Glencoe, Scottish Highlands is the fantastic, detached holiday home of Island View House.

With its stylish décor and easy access to delicious eateries and shops, this holiday home makes a superb base for a family of 10 looking for a Highlands adventure.

Make use of the handy, private parking on arrival, before heading inside to be welcomed by the warm and pleasant sitting room, where a crackling woodburning stove envelopes you with warmth and plush sofas entice you to kick back and relax.

Progress through the property to the fabulous kitchen/diner, a space enjoying shaker-style cabinetry and a stylish colour scheme throughout; the chef of the group will be happy to find a range of appliances and ample food preparation space.

When a delectable dinner has been rustled up, tuck into it at the nearby dining table whilst you catch up on those outdoors adventures.

When sleep calls, choose one of five tastefully furnished bedrooms, with the first one being the master double, a space enjoying access to a contemporary, en-suite shower room, along with three more fabulous doubles and a twin.

The family bathroom has been finished to a high standard, enjoying wooden flooring and metro tiling, so you can freshen up in style, whether that be in the relaxing bath or the walk-in shower.

To the rear of the property is a garden featuring a bubbling hot tub and an oak barrel sauna, a spot promising ample relaxation after a jam-packed day.

Make the most of the dwelling's location and venture next door to the marvellous Glencoe Gathering or Red Shed Pizza for a bite to eat or travel a short distance to the nearby shop to pick up some ingredients for a homecooked meal.

Get to know your surroundings, by venturing along the Glencoe Lochan Trail, with its access to lochs sporting salmon and sea trout, as well as ample mountain sports, such as mountain-biking and white-water kayaking.

The area is also known for being home to a range of filming locations, including those from Harry Potter: such as the Glenfinnan Viaduct, Steall Falls, and Skyfall's Glen Etive; after exploring these stellar sights, be sure to indulge in a meal out at one of the many nearby eateries, including the Steak & Lobster Bistro and Fish & Chips Co.

If you're after some adventure, embark on a hike along the West Highland Way to come across the sights of Buachaille Etive Mòr, River Coe, along with opportunities to hike up Ben Nevis and ski the slopes of the Glencoe Mountain Resort.

There is plenty more to see in the wider area, with Fort William and Oban resting a scenic drive away and making for lovely days out.

An unforgettable break awaits at Island View House.

About the location

GLENCOE

Fort William 16 miles. Kinlochleven 7 miles.

The peaceful village of Glencoe sits at the western end of Loch Leven and boasts a scattering of houses as well as a small museum, shop and an Inn offering excellent food and refreshments. A popular centre for hill-walkers, climbers and holidaymakers alike, the surrounding area hosts a variety of activities, including many great walking opportunities and an abundance of wildlife not to be missed! Take a trip to the National Trust Visitor Centre to discover the story of the infamous Glencoe Massacre. Travel north across the Ballachulish Bridge towards Fort William and you will pass the Corran Ferry over to the unspoilt Ardnamurchan Peninsula. In Fort William you could take a gondola trip at Nevis Range or drive westwards to the Isles and visit Glenfinnan, where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard to rally the clans. You will also find the Glenfinnan viaduct, memorably captured in the Harry Potter films. Alternatively you could follow the coastal route south towards Oban along the shores of Loch Linnhe to Kinlochlaich Gardens, Barcaldine Castle or the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary, where rescued seals are nursed back to health before being returned to the wild. A fantastic location for all the family!
