When the Millenium Year came, on New Years Day I climbed the first 2,000 feet of Ben Nevis, stood and wondered at the world.
When I was a lad of 20, my motor cycle broke down in Glencoe. So I clambered up on to the Anoch Eagach ridge and had a cloudless 360 degree view of the Highlands from the Cuillins of Skye in the West, to Schiehallion in the East. Off season some of the memories are never to be forgotten.
The reason we offer the lowest prices for low season bookings is because we like the cottage to be occupied. It keeps it cosy.
WHY SHOULD YOU COME TO GLENCOE IN THE WINTER
The roads are clear of traffic - bliss.
The locals smile at everyone when the tourists have gone.
There is rock and ice climbing in the Glen to watch.
There is skiing, 2 centres, with a Gondola to go to the restaurant if you don’t want to ski.
There is good coffee to be had at Crafts and Things, music in the Climbers bar at the Clachaig Inn, and the Holly Tree is just a short walk from the cottage for evening meals. At the Ice Factor in Kinlochleven you can watch them climbing ice walls. When it rains, and it does, just go to the biggest waterfalls. The power is unimaginable.
