The Steading apartment was a lovely, warm, comfortable retreat from the almost continuous rain we had during our stay, with beautiful views of the mountaintops, covered in snow during the time we were there. The owners greeted us on arrival, and had catered for our every need. The immediate area has lovely walks right out of the door, and the surrounding area is just glorious. Kinlochleven is within easy reach of so many 'must visit' places - Fort William, Ben Nevis, Glencoe and further afield. As seafood lovers, the highlight of our week was the Loch Leven Shellfish company just down the road, where we bought the freshest mussels, crabs and scallops that we have ever eaten. We can't wait to return to this beautiful area, and wonder if the waterfalls will be quite as spectacular on our next visit.
Host and hostess not prepared to put themselves out for us! We travelled 281 miles for our stay, paid for full week and due to family committments could only travel on the monday late afternoon. 3 hours into our journey we were contacted by them and told to find overnight accommodation as they were not prepared to wait for us to arrive, we were an hour away!!! We asked them to leave a key, but they said no!!! We had to sleep that night in the car, in a car park as we could not get any accomodation!!! To add insult to injury we were told they could not meet us with key until 12:30 the next day !! Strange way to run a business!! We got them to reluctantly meet us at 10:00am !! To our further dismay, whe we asked what to do with key when we left we were told to 'leave it in the door as there was no crime in Kinlochleven' !!! Double standards, as the could not leave key indoor for our arrival!! I look forward to your comments and have also put this complaint in writing Spoken to an operative when booking my next break for november but all seems to have fallen on deaf ears !!!
We were de;ighted with the accomodation,very clean & crisp & really comfortable.Nice & modern,which we both liked.The appartment is in a wonderful location with lots of places within easy reach for going on walks etc.Beautiful scenic drives,good restaurants are also within the area.You can reach lots of the west coastal area of Scotland easily with only a few hours travelling. We enjoyed the peaceful area & the fantastic scenery.Well worth another visit!
On arrival the owners of the property were there to welcome us from a long journey and make sure hte heating was on and the TV was working etc. Lovely people with an excellent property in a fantastic location. Kitchen very well equipped with everything you would need and more! A view of a mountain out of every window. A romantic, memorable stay and we will definately be returning.
Very warm welcome from owners to a very clean and spacious apartment. The bathroom was big with a great power shower. The kitchen/diner/lounge was ideal with great views and added light in kitchen via velux windows. If I was being picky I would say the bed was showing its age, but that would not stop us from staying again.
We found the apartment to be spacious, warm, comfortable, immaculately decorated and spotlessly clean. It was great base for our winter week in the Highlands, with mountain paths running just behind the garden, and its very peaceful - the only noises we could hear were birds and waterfalls. The kitchen is fully equipped to cook proper meals, which is nice, and the place felt like home for a week. I'd thoroughly recommend it.
