Every year our family spends this week in a cottage in this area, watching the local SSDT event. Normally the cottages we stay in are pleasant, and have that holiday feel, however this was a change from the norm.
On arrival it quickly became apparent that the cottage had been suffering from a lack of basic maintenance for some time: All smoke alarms broken, cooker largely inoperable, garden overgrown, radiators scalding, aging decor, and lacking basic cleanliness throughout. We proceeded with our weeks stay as planned, however standards were so far below what we had paid for that we contacted the owner halfway through our stay. He did send his maintenance man round the next day, who fixed a few things, gave the windows their first clean in some considerable time, but little else.
In an attempt to reach a compromising middle ground we suggested some sort of partial refund. This was refused, and some vouchers were promised instead. However 3 weeks on, and these have also failed to materialize.
We are genuinely disappointed, as this is a large property, and its great location gives it massive potential. However until such time as it is afforded some basic cleaning & maintenance, it does no represent value for money in holiday rental market.
The cottage is huge and very comfortable. Pleasant walks all around. My friends and I traveled via public transport and had no problem finding the cottage or getting to and from Fort William. Our only slight complaint was that it was very difficult to warm the house up, but we wrapped up in extra duvets and were comfortable enough we didn't feel the need to contact the owners. Otherwise, everything was great and we thoroughly enjoyed the stay!

This place is fantastic. Beautiful location where you can relax and breathe. Great value for money. Lovely owners who gave me a discount, even on last minute booking.
Such an amazing place for a holiday or just a weekend away. One thing would be to clean the cutlery a little better, other than that - perfect. Will be booking again for March as soon as I get the dates set.
Thanks again Mr & Mrs Lovett :)
Very nice cottage lots of space extremely well maintained and very clean. Heating system was great It was always lovely and warm inside which was very welcoming when returning from a day out climbing or walking. Beautiful area lots of amazing scenery plenty of mountains and hills to climb/walk would highly recommend for the great outdoors. Ben Nevis was amazing spectacular views from the top and also Pap of Glencoe with stunning views of Glencoe and the Mountains.
