The Gatehouse is a semi-detached 2 bedroom cottage in the stunning village of Glenfinnan. The cottage has had extensive renovation this year and is now available for those seeking a holiday in Scotland. Guests have easy walking distance to two excellent restaurants; the railway station with its museum and diner and is close by to the NTS Glenfinnan monument visitor centre. The cottage provides an excellent base to explore the west coast, the islands and Skye.
The cottage is well equipped with fridge-freezer, microwave, washer and dryer in the kitchen. There is a bathroom with shower and a wet room downstairs. The two bedrooms (with one double & two adult single beds) are upstairs. In the living room, we will leave you with the means to enjoy an open fire for cosy evenings. There is a smart TV and we have a licence so you can watch BBC i-Player guilt free. There is a place to securely store bikes if needed. The garden area is being reconstructed so not yet suitable for young children. We can be flexible on check in and out times depending on whether new guests are expected. If you have any special requests - please just ask!
Interaction with guests
You will be greeted on arrival by Fiona or Alistair and although we live nearby, we will leave you to enjoy our lovely cottage.
Other things to note
Be aware that the garden area is under construction. You will still enjoy lovely hill views.
- Be considerate of neighbours
- If you break it - replace it!
Alistair & I have lived in Glenfinnan for over 30 years and we can't imagine living anywhere else. Alistair is estate manager for Glenfinnan Estate so if there is anything you want to know about deer or forestry or hydro power - he's your man! It's hard getting Alistair away from Glenfinnan but I like to travel a bit. A solo camper van trip through Europe in 2015 satisfied my travel lust for a while but I always have my passport handy!
We live on the local highland estate and one day hope to retire to the Gatehouse. For the last 20 years we have opened our forever home to holiday guests, friends, tenants and visitors. We were able to upgrade and update the Gatehouse this year and hope all our guests enjoy it as much as we hope we will in the future.
