They range from flora and fauna of many kinds, orchids and grasses to fungi and litchen.

There are over 30 varieties of birds. Eagles soar above the high ridge behind the site and many garden birds feed on our nut feeders and nest in the boxes provided around the site.

Mammals as large as Red Deer to the small Pipistrelle Bat occupy the area and we have a resident family of Pine Martens who like to be fed anything sweet, bread and jam being a favourite!! Red Squirrels also make a recurring appearance quite often stealing the bird nuts, no greys here yet!!!!

Reptiles such as common lizards, slow worms, frogs, newts keep home in the burns and warm wet grass around the edge of the site. We are also graced with butterflies and bumble

Well presented and fabulously located. We really enjoyed our week in the chalet,.

  • 5 of 5

After a great reception from Sharon we found the chalet had everything you need for a great week away including plenty of useful info for trips out and about.

We would recommend these chalets to everyone. You really are just a short walk away from the very pretty Loch, and well situated for all the attractions Including Isles Mull, Iona and Skye.

Couldn't have been more happy!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a friendly greeting by the owners and were really impressed with the chalet! There was lots of information available about places to visit around the chalet and we took the chance to adventure out to nearby Glencoe for amazing walks and Fort William to take the train to Mallaig. We had a visit every evening from the resident Pine Marten which was a real treat! The views were amazing we enjoyed relaxing on the deck watching the Loch as the sun went down! I would recommend this place all day long as long as you have a car so you can get out and explore! 😊

Nice chalet situated in a beautiful spot in the Highlands

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time over there. The chalet were ok and the landlord was very friendly. Glencoe with the Three Sisters was awesome and less than 20 minutes away by car. Ben Nevis wasn't that far either and also great for a hike. And there was a nice fish restaurant almost next to the chalets with lovely food.

Lovely setting and comfortable lodgings. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at the Loch Leven chalets. Sharon met us on arrival with a smile and armed with all the knowledge we needed about the property and the area. Excellent host! Comfortable beds and all the amenities we needed were provided including an on location laundry room. The information book provided in the chalet was brimming full of info on the area and included menus, walking suggestions and much more. The best info. book I've ever seen in the many lodgings I've rented over the years. The setting is absolutely beautiful. The bird feeder in front of the chalets attracted numerous song birds. Red deer came into the yard to feed in the evening and pine martins came for a visit on our porch late at night. So cool! The chalets are a ten minute walk from Loch Leven seafood, an absolutely brilliant restaurant and a short drive from Kinlochleven on one end of the loch and Glencoe Village on the other. Both have restaurant and pub choices as well as a small grocery in Glencoe. The location of the chalet's provide a wealth of some of Scotland's best scenery within a short drive. Don't miss out on a side trip down Glen Etive while passing through the more travelled Glencoe. One of our favorite places we visited in Scotland. Brilliant stay and great lodgings. Highly recommended!

what a find this place was

  • 5 of 5

we had the most wonderful time here , this place must be one of the best places to stay in the area, the chalet was lovely and clean and so comfortable, it was like home from home, the views from the chalet were stunning, as was the surroundings, The site itself is very well kept, and most of all the people who own and run it (Sharon & Ian) must be 2 of the nicest people you will ever come across, they are so friendly and helpful, we would recommend this place to anyone, I would rate it as 5 star +. Many thanks once again to Sharon and Ian for making this a wonderful holiday. Kind regards from Linda & Charlie.

Excellent place in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The Tiranui Lodge is very clean, very comfortable and well maintained with a great view of Loch Leven and the mountains. The Lodge provides for everything one needs incuding lots of info-material on what to do and maps. It is a very quit place, lodge is a bit away from the street which isn't busy at all. There are lots of activities in the area like Segway tours, walking , boat trips etc.

Here at Loch Leven Holidays we are situated in a quite loch side location 4.5miles from North Ballachulish and the main A82, which is the North/South route up the Scottish West coast. We are in an enviable position sitting on the North shore of Loch Leven facing South over the spectacular mountains of Glencoe, with the Mamore range behind us. The setting is fantastic and the views are stunning. The area around has much to offer with walking, climbing, cycling, boating, sight-seeing or just relaxing.

We are only 7 miles from the spectacular Glencoe, 40 miles from Oban which is a lovely little fishing port where you can enjoy shopping, eating, walking or even seal watching.

Fort William the home of Ben Nevis (the highest mountain in the British Isles) is only 16 miles away where many indoor and outdoor activities can be enjoyed

Golf: Dragons Tooth Golf Course is only 6 miles away and is in a stunning position looking over Loch Linnhe. An ideal spot to enjoy a few rounds and enjoy a warming coffee or cool drink in the cafe.

Ski: We have 2 ski centres within 30 mins of the cottage, Glencoe Mountain resort only 12 miles away and Anoch Mor nr Fort William 20 miles away. Both excellent spots for enjoying winter sports but both having world class mountain bike routes, hire wire activities and food and drink options.
