Schoolhouse cottage has gorgeous views of the sea and mountains and is wonderfully located for exploring the highlands.

Here you can enjoy the flexibility of a whole cottage, but for short stays if that suits you best.

The space
The cottage is light, bright and cozy and overlooks Loch Linnhe and the mountains of Glencoe and Ballachulish.


The spacious living room has a vaulted ceiling and leads on to an open plan kitchen and dining area.


The bedroom is small, but has a king-size bed with a memory foam mattress and fitted wardrobes. The whole cottage is decorated in restful, neutral colours.

Located on the main route through the western highlands, connecting Glencoe to Mallaig, Skye and the small isles, the cottage is on the A82, 10 miles south of Fort William and between the villages of Onich and North Ballachulish.

Surrounding the cottage are beautiful gardens with an outdoor seating area.

Across the road, steps lead on to a secluded, shingle beach with views eastwards towards Glencoe and westwards towards the Isle of Mull.

There is free Wi-Fi, along with a TV/DVD player and a Bluetooth music system.

The kitchen is well equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher, and basics such as organic sunflower oil, fairtrade sugar, salt and pepper are also provided. In addition, you will find complimentary organic ground coffee, fairtrade instant coffee, fairtrade and organic tea, as well as Scottish shortbread.

Laundry facilities are also available.

Perfect as a base for exploring the Highlands and touring on to Skye and the northern isles, the cottage offers the flexibility of short stays for two or more nights, self-catering.

The cottage sleeps two and we can additionally provide a cot and high chair for wee ones. One dog is usually welcome at no extra charge but please check with us before booking if you intend to bring a dog.

On your arrival, you will find complimentary, organic, ground coffee, tea, milk and Scottish shortbread.

We look forward to welcoming you as our guests.

Guest access
The cottage is exclusively yours for the duration of your stay and has its own front and back doors, ensuring private access.

It has ample car parking which is private and secure.

You can reach the shingle beach by crossing the road.

Other things to note
We have a small, friendly dog called Monty. He is a little white fluffy Maltese/Shitzu cross and very used to new people coming to visit, but we will of course keep him away from any guests who don't like dogs.

Location

Onich, United Kingdom

There are many nice places to eat nearby, including the Loch Leven Hotel and the Onich Hotel, both of which are dog-friendly, and the Laroch restaurant and bar in Ballachulish, whose kitchen is run by Michelin Star Chef, Allan Donald. For seafood, the Loch Leven Seafood Café is highly recommended.

As the Outdoor Capital of the UK, the region of Lochaber is fantastic for all kinds of outdoor activities including hiking, sailing, skiing, ice-climbing and cycling. The ski resorts of Glencoe and the Nevis ranges are about 25 minutes' drive away and are open all year round for skiers and hikers. Boat trips to visit the islands and spot wildlife depart from Loch Leven and Loch Linnhe. A thirty mile radius from the cottage takes in Ben Nevis, the mountains of Glencoe, the world's largest indoor ice-climbing wall, the Seal Sanctuary near Oban, Glenfinnan where Bonnie Prince Charlie gathered the clans in 1745 and the famous Harry Potter viaduct .... to name but a few.
