We stayed in the cottage, the smaller of the two properties. There were five of us, plus a fifteen-month little girl, who tore about, loving the space. Archedive is on Loch Arkaig and is very secluded and peaceful. The cottage is well-appointed - everything you need - and it was a very short walk to the loch, about 3 minutes,...

I have recently spent the weekend at this fantastic holiday home. It is truly luxurious in every aspect. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you could need for self catering accommodation. The location is absolutely breathtaking as it is right on the loch and the scenery is amazing. An extra delight is seeing the stags coming down from...

After 20 plus years of spring camping at Loch Arkaig we decided to upgrade to the Ardechive cottage last week, and what an upgrade it was. One evening at dinner I joked with my wife that I would not be returning for another stay here as there was no pizza cutter in the cutlery drawer, she responded "it's in the...

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Ardechive, weather great with beautiful views over Loch Arkaig. House is well equipped, lovely and warm with lots of hot water, nicely decorated and very comfortable with all the finishing touches. Lovely place to stay we would highly recommend it. Peaceful and remote but within reach of an Asda delivery. Perfect for walking and cycling...

Stayed here in July/August for 1 week. Absolutely stunning location AND a tastefully decorated and beautifully maintained cottage. We all felt very much at home as soon as we arrived and loved the solitude and amazing views from the windows. Ardechive cottage is very well presented and has all the amenities you could possibly need - which is just as...

100% Clean, perfectly cosy! This is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. The owners have thought of everything and the place was immaculate. We loved it...could have spent the week in the cottage! Great location by the side of the loch with loads of walks and things to do....simply perfect.

I was on a hiking holiday with 4 friends for over a week trough the scottish highlands. At our last day we had to walk over 20 kilometers along Loch Arkaig with a non stop rain on our heads. We were out of range of our map and asked at the first house we saw at the end of the...

We booked Ardechive for the Easter period for the whole family including Grandma & Granddad who love their walking. The booking process was quick and easy and everyone we dealt with was friendly and courteous at all times. Grandma & Granddad arrived at the cottage on Sunday and we followed up later on in the week on the Wednesday. The...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here for a week in February 2014. Lots of great walks around the hills and forests nearby and the road to the end of Loch Arkaig provides a challenging cycle. Loads of wildlife and was fortunate to spot an eagle in full flight. The cottage has everything that is needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay...

“If you have a family come with a meal ready prepared if you are travelling a long way as we did from Wales. Ft William has some good takeaways but they are a bit too far away from the cottage to be of use unless you eat there.”
