Escape to the 5 star comfort of Glencoe House in one of Scotland’s wildest locations
Glencoe House, which lies at the north-west end of the glen, on the southern bank of the River Coe, is what was ‘practically made with social distancing in mind’ the sparkly-eyed, hotel manager joked on our arrival. You see, Glencoe House isn’t your average hotel. Rather than booking a room, you book a suite – which in our experience, was a corridor of rooms, each with an individual fireplace, a string of windows (so as to admire the gargantuan vista), elegantly plastered ceilings and a personal drinks bar (to be ticked off as you go along via an honesty sheet).
As far as views go, it would take something quite remarkable to beat the panoramic vista of Loch Leven and the backwards look out to the Pap of Glencoe. Views that twinkled an array of autumnal shades depending on the placement of the sun in the sky. Certainly, the view was a stalwart of our stay, whether we were breakfasting, bathing or snoozing, the ample windows offered a view of Glencoe’s most serious calling card – the mountain range.
Stay a while at Glencoe and be sure to embrace the three sisters, the hidden valley and the wee herdsman, a smorgasbord of walks to suit all capabilities. A day’s hiking is all the better, knowing the ultimate comfort (Penhaligon toiletries, champagne on ice and roaring fire) that will greet you back at Glencoe House – even a jacuzzi. Guaranteed, you won’t want to leave.
