Beautiful cozy cottage surrounded by stunning mountains and rolling hills.

  • 4 of 5

Cozy cottage with beautiful views. Fireplace worked well and it was a perfect size for 4 adults. The town has a small grocery store and a lovely cafe where you can get delicious scones and coffee (Crafts & Things). Would definitely come back for a visit!

Beautiful and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely welcoming property. Suitably "out of the way" from local hustle and bustle. Exceptionally clean and comfortable.

Beautiful views from the back. Ben View, indeed! Highly recommended.

Clean and cozy house, good location

  • 5 of 5

In August we spent a lovely week in this clean and cozy cottage. And even though the street is close to the house, this did not disturb our sleep. We always enjoyed coming back to "our" holiday home after long days out and about. (The only minor disturbance was the loud fan in the bathroom, which unfortunately is connected to the light switch. But we assume this can be fixed...)

The location is great for dicovering this part of the Highlands, with Fort William and many other sights closeby, also well suited for people who love hiking and spending the days in the lovely nature, which surrounds the cottage.

Thank you for having us!

Best wishes,

Christine and family

Very clean and well-furnished cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had very good facilities, and was spotless clean. The view from the back garden is amazing. Near to restaurants and shops. The wifi signal is very strong, Though the cottage was off a main road, the traffic couldn't be heard, and was minimal in any case.

Lovely little house with everything you need in an ideal position between Fort William and Oban.

  • 5 of 5

House was nice and clean, and had everything we needed for our stay. Perfect for a family of 4 or 5. Few games and DVD's which was nice for the kids. The position of the house was perfect, just 10 mins from Glen Coe which had lots of lovely walking/ cafes/ sea food etc and half way between Fort William and Oban- both less than an hour away. Would definitely return to Ben View if we were staying in the area again. Thank you!
