“Great location, good cottage for groups”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed for a week with a group of friends to walk, cycle, climb and explore the area. Mill Cottage was spotless on arrival and perfect us with comfortable accomodation and plenty of space for all our kit, having use of the garage was great for our bikes. The kitchen was well equipped and the boiler room was most useful for drying wet clothing (weather was a bit hit and miss!).

The property is well used and some of the decoration is less than perfect however I feel this added to the quirky charm. If the main focus of your holiday is staying in a pristine property in showhome condition Mill Cottage is not for you, its a good value comfortable property situated in a great location ideal for exploring the Glencoe/Fort William area.... or just relaxing in the lounge soaking up the view!

Reviewed 23 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just returned from mill cottage after an amazing week spent with family there from the start arranging booking and even to the point we got lost on way speaking to Pete felt like had known him for years extremely friendly we arrived finally at cottage which was clean spacious worked well with younger members of party as shutting doors at one end of cottage couldn't hear them at other the cottage has little faults here and there but what would you expect it was a base to explore that particular part of scotland we would recommend loch leven hotel for views whilst eating and onich hotel for amazing views with food to match short distance to fort william one way glencoe the other and little further to fort Augustus would like to thank Pete and Sarah for providing a comfortable base for us and we will definitely return hopefully soon with our daughter and her new baby when he makes an appearance

A great cottage set in a beautiful setting with amazing views from the balcony. Mill Cottage is ideally situated for Nevis Range and Glencoe. We travelled with young children and teenagers who loved the cottage and the area around for exploring when we were not skiing. The owner Pete was extremely helpful and ensured we were well catered for.

The house is spacious with all bedrooms a good size and plenty of room down stairs for everyone to have their own space. A real plus for the children and adults is unlimited WIFI. It was great to come home from a day up the mountains in snow to a warm house, bath and shower.

We have already booked again for next year.

“In need of a major clean and face lift!”

11 of us went to the cottage for Hogmanay this year. Don't get me wrong lots of space for big groups but the place is dirty! Cobwebs in all rooms, dirt and dust everywhere. We did call and the owner answered - the cleaner came back round and used bleach on the tables?! Not safe so we just said to leave it and we cleaned it ourself!

Upstairs is nicer than downstairs by far. Unfortunately they have got beds in the hall upstairs which was annoying so 2 of our friends ended up sleeping in their camper van.

There is no outside light either so in the winter you cannot see in front of yourself at all.

Real shame property has such potential - massive and at a scenic location. However I won't be back, it is falling apart - wallpaper is hanging off the walls particularly in downstairs bedroom.

Try somewhere else unfortunately.

We stayed at 7 properties in Ireland and Scotland. This by far was the worst. Their is a whole list of deferred maintenance issues with this property. It was the only property we stayed at that was not ready to just enjoy. The furnishings our old and worn out. We booked it because it was centrally located for our travel plans.

Hi Mike,

We feel your criticism is a little harsh. Yes Mill Cottage is and old property which was refurbished in 2012 with complete new decor and new carpet throughout. We do understand there are a few minormaintenance issues which need addressing and we have a local handyman to do these but the vast majority of our guests find that these do not impact on their enjoyment of the location and holiday. The furniture in Mill Cottage is comfortable if not matching as it is difficult to find matching furniture for 12 guests to sit on.

Mill Cottage has been victim of its own success in 2014 as we have been fully booked. But of course we take your comments on board and will look to refurbish again later this year for the 2015 season.

Kind regards

Pete.
