Really nice, spacious room and delicious breakfast! We arrived around dinner time after a long walk and the owners booked us a table at a local pub which was a short walk away. Really enjoyed our visit.

We spent two nights staying at Fern Villa and would highly recommend this to everyone. It was in a perfect location for Glencoe and the owners David and Catherine went out of their way to really make this stay like a home from home - also providing very helpful advice. The room was both warm and comfortable with a fantastic... More

We had a lovely stay here, and couldn't find anything to complain about. The house itself is a charming stone cottage. Our room was very cozy and comfortable, and had a nice view towards the Loch and the mountains. It was probably the most peaceful sleep I've ever had. David and Catherine were the most gracious hosts! And of course,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the night and it was lovely! The room was very clean and had everything you needed, the hosts were very kind and helpful with recommending places to eat and things to do in Glencoe. The breakfast was great too, if you're a fan of fish I would highly recommend the kippers for breakfast!

We stayed here recently for a weekend walking trip to Glencoe and were a bit disappointed overall. The hosts are very pleasant and very accommodating, and the place certainly is reasonably priced, but the quality of the accommodation isn't great, despite their website, which makes it look lovely. The whole place in need of an update. We had a small... More

We stayed for just one night on our way home from the West Highlands. I wanted to spend some time photographing Glencoe and the loch, but sadly the heavens opened and the mist set in. Our room was the small double and it was very small, but this was made clear on booking and was priced accordingly. It was perfectly... More
