The Bell Tower Suites opened in 2017 and occupy a characterful building in its own right that is located only 50 metres from Glencoe House. The timing of the opening is particularly fitting as the bell from the tower was cast in 1927 by John Taylor & Co and 90 years on we celebrate a new era for the building.
Suites Nine, Ten, Eleven, Thirteen and Fourteen are approximately 75 sqm. in living space and all suites benefit from private walled gardens with hot tubs and alfresco dining areas. The Bell Tower suites have a modern country look and feel, which is fitting for their Highland location.
