“Fantastic”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed at Roe Deer Cottage for a week in September. The cottage is beautifully presented and the best equipped we have stayed in. The friendly, helpful hosts have thought of everything, including a bottle of wine.

Cottage is all on the flat, has a ramp and would be ideal for older or less mobile guests. There is a short walk down to Loch Leven. It is handy to Fort William, Kinlochleven, Glencoe Village and the wonderful walking tracks around Glencoe. It is also less than a one hour drive to Oban where we caught the ferry for a visit to Mull and Iona.

Had beautiful weather while we were there and were very reluctant to leave. Highly recommend this property.

“Absolutely wonderful cottage.”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We loved staying at Roe Deer Cottage and it is certainly the best cottage we have visited. It is immaculate, very well equipped with quality items and also has lots of information about things to do and places to eat. The welcome pack was just lovely, as was the peace and quiet and the wildlife nearby. We would definitely recommend it.

“Nothing short of perfect. ”

Not the first time staying here, and not the first time to feel completely comfortable, relaxed, and very impressed with the cottage and superb surrounding area. Highly recommended.

“Excellent accommodation”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Super cottage. Everything you need and good quality. Near to so many things. Would stay here again. Lovely touches from Elaine of a bottle of chilled wine, chocolates, biscuits, selection of teas and coffee and fresh flowers.

“Perfect home from home and more!”
Reviewed May 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Beautifully situated cottage in the Glencoe area. The cottage is immaculately clean and tidy with everything you could wish for. Very comfortable beds and furniture and very tastefully decorated throughout. We received a very warm welcome and really appreciated a complimentary welcome pack. A lovely patio area with seating and a fantastic view in every direction and wildlife coming right up to the cottage. Would highly recommend this beautiful cottage and we will be returning in the near future.

“Spoiler for stays elsewhere...”
Reviewed May 17, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

As the title says, this place raises the bar to a level, other (comfortable) properties we've stayed in, struggle to achieve.
Elaine & Angus have clearly spent a lot of time & effort considering what visitors want/need during a stay in the Highlands. Thank you.
Superb welcome & very enjoyable stay.
Will definitely return.

“The best cottage we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed May 15, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Roe Deer Cottage is in a stunning location, is immaculately clean, warm and cosy as well as spacious. Every thing you could possibly need is provided. I have very high standards for cleanliness and I could not fault anything. The extras provided are beyond anything we have ever had in a holiday cottage before, top quality toiletries, even hand cream and body lotion, robes and slippers, wine, chocolates, biscuits and fresh flowers. Elaine and Angus are friendly hosts who are there if you need them but leave you to enjoy your holiday if you don't.

We cannot praise this cottage highly enough. The location is perfect with many stunning places to visit within easy reach. It was a very long journey from home for us but worth every mile! We cannot wait to return.
