The Steading Apartment Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
Situated in the owner's grounds on the edge of the pretty village of Kinlochleven, this modern, first floor apartment is just twenty-two miles from Fort William. With a light, airy open-plan living area and a double bedroom, this is a great location for a romantic break with the one you love or an outdoor adventure with a friend. With a garden to the rear of the property, visitors can even enjoy some al fresco dining against the wonderful mountainous backdrop.

Below towering mountains at the end of Loch Leven – often considered one of Scotland's prettiest lochs – lies the picturesque village of Kinlochleven. Boasting an abundance of wonderful walking opportunities through the magnificent countryside of the West Highland Way, visitors can also enjoy numerous fishing and water sport facilities in the nearby area. No matter what time of year, there are always things to do in the region, such as indoor climbing courses and activities at The Ice Factor - the world's largest indoor ice climbing facility – or the good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants which are situated in the town. Nearby Glencoe – a mere seven miles away – offers mountaineering, snowboarding, fishing and sailing opportunities as well as slightly less dangerous pastimes like as fabulous craft centres and the fascinating Folk Museum.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

Oil central heating. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, TV with basic Satellite, video, DVD, radio/cassette/CD player, small selection of books/games/DVDs/videos.

February 2010
The apartment was easily located, we were met and warmly welcomed by the owner. The apartment was in excellent condition, very clean and warm. We walked directly from the door onto a footpath giving access to the mountains. After a cold,wet day of walking the shower and endless hot water was brilliant. A well appointed kitchen made for easy preparation of evening meals. Just more sunshine would have made for the perfect short break.
Mr Wilson

Mrs Bathh

We liked our holiday very much, it is our second time to Scotland. So the scenery and walks are second to none. But the accommodation made it even better. Home from home, the owners are lovely and very accommodating. We would recommend this apartment to anyone.
Miss Pokorna

Mrs Fisher

The apartment is like a home-from-home for us. We love staying here, having been for the last 5 years in a row. The scenery is gorgeous and we never get tired of looking at it through the windows. It's also very peaceful and quiet. We still have plenty of places to see and things to do in the area.
Mr Baldwin
January 2016
The property was very comfortable and very clean with lovely views outside. There was plenty of equipment in the kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and cosy. This apartment is worthy of more stars for the rating. The owner was very welcoming and would've done anything to make our stay enjoyable.

We would recommend this property to anyone. The owners were most welcoming, very friendly and helpful. The area is outstanding for scenery and the local amenities were close by. We will certainly use this apartment if we chose to go to this area again.
Mr Rossiter

A very well equipped, clean, spacious, warm and comfortable apartment. Ideal for climbing the Munros and for relaxing at the end of the day. We have stayed in over a dozen holiday lets over the past five years while climbing the Munros - all over Scotland - and this is one of the best we have found.
Mr Wallace
January 2015
One of the best cottages we have stayed in, superb all round views, excellent. The photographs don't do it justice, should be five star.
Mr Sargerson
March 2015
Every day we walked and we could not fit everything in, the countryside is so beautiful, it is a must for anyone to see. Returning to the apartment after the walks was warm and welcoming, cannot recommend it highly enough.
Miss Geary
October 2014
The apartment was spotlessly clean, and everything looked new. The location was good, and we liked the fact that just at the back of the property there are several walks you can go on. The scenery in the area is fantastic.

Mrs Ventham
June 2013
A warm welcome from the owners on our arrival, showing an interest in the walking we would be doing whilst staying. Local walks recommended in person and an abundance of leaflets about the surrounding area were available in the apartment. A short walk to the local shop and pubs. An ideal location to access sections of the West Highland Way and several of the walks outlined in guide books without having to use the car. Views from all rooms beautiful, kitchen had a generous quantity of well thought out equipment and large comfortable sofa and bed - perfect after a hard day's walking! Would definitely consider staying in The Steading Apartment again.

The apartment is a credit to the owners and in a lovely position with plenty of walks and is close to a shop and pubs. The surrounding area is very nice and after hiring a car found the roads fairly good allowing us to see the fabulous scenery.

Mrs Allinson
October 2011
Another winner from Sykes Cottages. Despite a week of almost uninterrupted rain we thoroughly enjoyed our break and appreciated having a warm and comfortable apartment to come home to. The waterfalls in the area were in flood, and the autumn colours a delight, a photographer's paradise. The seafood shop along the loch kept us supplied with first class mussels, crabs and other shellfish.
Mr Davidge

A very beautiful little apartment in very beautiful surroundings.
Mr Buxton

Mr Kew

The owners were absolutely brilliant to deal with, very nice. There are several walks straight out the back door with breath taking views. An all round excellent holiday apartment.

The location was ideal for a base to visit the local area with fantastic walks within easy reach. The apartment was ideal and very modern, could not fault it. Owners on hand if needed. Seafood restaurant nearby well worth a visit.

Mr Rhodes

Stunning views from the location, close to the village with good facilities. Friendly and helpful owners who have a very beautiful and well kept appartment. Even kind enough to allow us the keys early as we arrived before the key avaliability time. Many thanks.
Mrs Johnston

K Ferguson
April 2013
A perfect wee retreat with everything close at hand. The owners are very welcoming and see to everything from the off. A lovely apartment, spacious and full of character, set at the foot of the hills with a scenic walk and waterfalls to enjoy. The loch itself makes for great photo oppertunities no matter what the weather. We will certainly consider rating there again.
January 2013
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.
Martin J
July 2012
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.
December 2011
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.
July 2010
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!
April 2010
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.
October 2011
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 !!!
