  • "We had a very enjoyable holiday at this comfortable, well appointed property."

    Some advice for those visiting with dogs - 1. The fence around the enclosed garden area is not secure for small dogs. 2. Our dogs did not enjoy navigating the metal steps to the front door. 3. Take a tic removing tool.

  • "Fabulous place to stay we had a very relaxing time."

    The property was excellent, very clean and lots of little thoughtful items left by the owners such as treats for the dogs. They even manage to arrange for the stag to come and welcome you and then visit on regular occasions

    Fantastic property with every thing you could ask for , great log burner and very cosy , although garden not fenced it is isolated enough for for dogs to be ok when outside , did see a stag wandering down the track one evening which was great , overall a great stay

  • "A very cosy chalet style accommodation, set in beautiful surroundings with the most amazing views."

    We had three dogs and managed different walks every day. Although the gardens are not enclosed, it was safe to let dogs wander under supervision with plenty of security lighting round the property. All the bedrooms had plenty of hanging and drawer space, kitchen very well equipped, even though it took us a good hour to find the cutlery drawer!! A really spacious, warm and comfortable property, but don’t forget your wellies! When it rains, it rains!!!!!

    Hi , thank you for your comments . Just a quick word to say , come the end of March 2022 there will be a large fenced off secure area for the doggy’s , plus a fence along the full extent of the main road ! It will be great if you have a doggy like ours who tends to like to wander ! Thanks again , Jane and Graham. Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous holiday."

    The cottage exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed seeing the deer which visited at least once per day to feed on the grass out front. Great walks in the area and some lovely beaches just up the coast. Favourites were the Nevis Range Gondola and walks, the Steall Waterfall & wire rope bridge and the hill walk from Glenfinnan Station to the Glenfinnan Viaduct (great views).

The property

Enjoying a beautiful position affording stunning mountain scenery and just a stone's throw from Loch Shiel, Coire-Dhiubh is a truly tranquil retreat nestled in the hamlet of Glenfinnan in the Scottish Highlands.

Offering a family of six a homely and welcoming base for their Highland adventures, Coire-Dhiubh is a detached property boasting a traditional feel and is within reach of a host of popular attractions, including the magnificent Glenfinnan Viaduct.

Once you have arrived at your secluded spot just off the main road, park up in the ample space and head up the steps to the door, before kicking off your boots and hanging coats in the handy porch entrance.

Continue through into the living/dining room and delight in the classic style surrounding you, with large windows affording you dinner with a view from the dining table, and traditional tartan carpet leading you to the sitting area where a woodburning stove can warm you in the winter months before the TV.

In the next room is a wonderful fitted kitchen, offering plenty of preparation space along with a host of appliances, including a double electric oven and a halogen hob, with a convenient dishwasher and washer/dryer too!

From here you can find the ground-floor bedroom, featuring a double bed which is served by the ground-floor shower room, great for those with limited mobility.

Head upstairs to find the remaining bedrooms, with a twin room great for friends or children and the master double bedroom boasting its very own en-suite shower room, while a relaxing moment can be enjoyed within the family bathroom where a large freestanding bath tub allows you to indulge in a hot soak after a busy day, with a large walk-in shower in here too.

The garden area outside is perfect for sitting out and soaking up the views of the surrounding mountains while you sip a morning coffee, with lots of wildlife regularly visiting the area, you might even see red stags up close!

A track leads from the front of the cottage down to Loch Shiel offering a great way to start your day with an amble along the waters.

Just across from the cottage is Glenfinnan Station where the Harry Potter Hogwarts train, or The Jacobite as it is officially named, comes twice a day, hop on here to travel across the magnificent 21-arched Glenfinnan Viaduct, with the train sometimes pausing on the viaduct time-permitting for you to soak up the stunning scenery, before continuing on across the amazing landscape.

The West Highland Railway Museum is located in the restored Glenfinnan station, whilst another must-see is the Glennfinnan Monument, home to a visitor centre too, it's a tribute to those who perished fighting the Jacobite cause, surrounded by the incredible scenery of Loch Shiel.

Discover the delightful village of Corpach just over thirteen miles away hosting a local shop and a pub, along with the family-run Treasures of the Earth museum, displaying a private collection of fossils, gemstones and crystals, whilst Neptune's Staircase in Banavie is not to be missed with its series of locks on the canal creating a striking sight to behold!

A scattering of local attractions including Ben Nevis Distillery, Old Inverlochy Castle and the Battle of Inverlochy battle site, lead you to the popular town of Fort William.

Walk along Loch Linnhe Pier for some amazing loch scenery and photo opportunities, explore the Old Fort at the waterside and head up to the Ben Nevis Visitor Centre whether just for a picnic at the beautiful riverside picnic area, or to park your car before embarking on a monumental experience of hiking up to the dramatic summit of the UK's highest mountain.

Discover endless wonders in this idyllic Scottish setting at Coire-Dhiubh.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

About the location

GLENFINNAN

Fort William 17 miles.

Set at the brink of Loch Shiel, the sleepy little village of Glenfinnan offers a fascinating history and is served by its own railway station, pub and tiny Post Office. Glenfinnan’s station doubles as the Glenfinnan Station Museum, which tells the tale of the West Highland Railway, with steam trains trundling by through the season. Also as this is the West Coast mainline, trains run daily from the village to Glasgow via Fort William and Glencoe and the line has been voted as being one of the most beautiful journeys in the world. Enjoy a scenic walk to the National Trust’s Glenfinnan Monument, where spectacular views across the loch and rising mountains can be enjoyed, followed by afternoon tea in the café, or cruise across the waters of Loch Shiel, with the opportunity to spot golden eagles flitting overhead. The area surrounding the village also offers a myriad of walking trails through vivid Highland scenery, with a variety of levels to suit many abilities. Nearby Fort William lies on the banks of Loch Linnhe, and offers a good selection of shops, and pubs serving a fine selection of meals. Ski enthusiasts will enjoy the Nevis Range, a ski resort with a mountain gondola, along with a World Cup mountain biking course. For a more relaxing break, why not take a tour of the Ben Nevis Whisky Distillery? Glenfinnan offers a peaceful location for exploring the best of the breathtaking West Highlands.
