The Byre

Six miles from historic Glencoe and sitting above Loch Leven with views onto the Mamore mountains, is a traditional highland dwelling built in the mid 19th century.

It used to be the stable for the pony of the deer stalker on the Mamore estate, which hosted many famous guests including King Edward VII.

The cottage is perfect as a romantic hideaway, retreat space or base for outdoor sports and sight seeing.

The space
From the bedroom, you can look out over the mountains on two sides and enjoy the wonderful panoramic views for miles around.

At dawn and dusk, wild deer can sometimes be seen grazing on the grassy hillside in front of the cottage.

The stable door leading into the Byre opens onto a living room and dining area with exposed beams and a vaulted ceiling.

The room is equipped with a TV and DVD player, a selection of DVDs and a music player which connects to other devices so you can play your own music.

There is also a fast internet connection.

Off the living room there is a newly refurbished, well-equipped kitchen with an oven and hob, fridge freezer, microwave, washing machine and a good selection of pots, dishes, plates, glasses, cutlery and other utensils.

On your arrival, you will find complimentary organic ground coffee, tea, milk and Scottish shortbread.

We also provide oil, salt, pepper and sugar.

The tiled bathroom finishes off the lovely space with a luxurious double shower, a full rainfall showerhead and a skylight Velux window that floods the room with light.

There is gas central heating throughout the cottage and a combination boiler which provides instant hot water.


The Byre is available  to book for a minimum stay of 5 nights, but a shorter stay may be possible if 5 consecutive nights are unavailable. contact us to enquire.

One dog is welcome by prior arrangement - please get in touch before booking.
