Other things to note
For all guests, but winter guests especially, it is important to note that the house is in a remote part of the highlands. Ensure you have plenty of petrol (petrol stations are in Tyndrum, coming from the south and Glencoe Village, coming from the north) and plenty of provisions (the nearest supermarket is in Ballachulish, 20 miles away).
In the winter, a car with 4-wheel drive and winter tyres is a definite advantage!
There is currently no WiFi and no mobile phone signal, though a mobile mast is planned for the near future. There is a landline telephone in the house for the use of guests and the number will be given on confirmation of your booking.
