Customer Reviews of Fir Cottage, Glencoe - Sleeps 4
1st comment: A real home from home!! Cosy, comfortable and in a stunning setting! A bottle of wine and some shortbread on arrival was a lovely touch. My youngest son wants to move there, as they loved exploring the garden and surrounding woods. Will definitely be back! Oct 2011.
2nd comment: We found everything just right to complement our holiday. Sept 2011.
3rd comment: Fir Cottage was just lovely, we had everything we needed and everyone was very friendly and helpful. The garden setting was stunning and the kids thoroughly enjoyed playing in the garden and going for walks by the river. July 2011.
4th comment: This was a lovely property in a very peaceful setting. It was very well equipped - having everything you could think of & more besides! A real home from home. The owners were very welcoming & have obviously put a lot of thought & care into it. The cottage is so picturesque, set in the glorious Glencoe valley. There is so much to do and see around here. It must be one of the most scenic areas in the UK. This was our first trip to Scotland &we were astounded at the beauty of the country. Our first view of Glencoe was the beautiful loch with its clear still waters mirroring the blue skies & mountains around. Fantastic! There are some lovely walks you can do from the cottage - to the loch, up the hills, to waterfalls, through the woods, along the valley, and many more. We thoroughly recommend this property. June 2011.
5th comment: Fir Cottage is a wonderful cottage in all ways. The owners, Willie and Denise, are friendly and attentive to all our needs. This is our second visit to the cottage and it has everything one could wish. It is close to Glencoe village, but very quiet. We were mountain climbing in the Glencoe area and it is an ideal base for that sort of activity. April 2011.
6th comment: This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful but quite remote part of the world to those of us from the Home Counties! We felt very relaxed here and had a great week. Even the torrential rain had a positive side- spectacular waterfalls. Even though you are attached to the owners’ property, you would never know. April 2011.
7th comment: Open fire place, well equipped kitchen, electric blankets, lot of guides and books about region. Nov 2010.

16th Comment Fir Cottage is an excellent choice for location and quality. The accommodation was extremely comfortable (especially the beds) and with great walking from the front door and the Clachaig Inn only a short distance away, this cottage proved to be perfect for our holiday in Scotland.
