Winter breaks in Glencoe have been brilliant this year so far. The new ski range is open and doing very very well. It is only a 90 minute drive from Glasgow, a bit further from Edinburgh. They send us a daily snow forecast which is very useful because we can tell our guests what it is like

Last of our off-season availability.
This is only for our previous guests or their friends. They are the only ones reading this blog anyway. We have a few days spare in early March which we can offer at half price as a short break cottage holiday.
Weekend 5th Fri - 8th Mon (£245 normal price) we'll do it for you at £122.50 if you are the first one to use the magic words "half price" in your subject line email to us. If you look at the website, it will show the normal price.

The thing is that these days people are often booking very late - sometimes just the week before. This is our other availability in March, but at normal prices:
Full Week at £295 from the 12th Fri, to the 19th Fri, or this can be broken into 2 short breaks Fri to Mon or Mon to Fri each £245.

In April
one full week is still available from April 16th to 23rd Fri to Fri at £295 or this can be divided into 2 short breaks, Fri - Mon or Mon to Fri at £245.
We also we have a short break from April 26th available at £245, Mon to Fri.

Send us an email at kentalleninfo(at)yahoo.co.uk  You need to put the little (at) sign in as usual. We do this to avoid spam. Or you can email us direct from the bayview website below the "lochside cottage..." link

We've never had such advance bookings before. Just a couple of weeks are still free in June and in August. We are really sorry if you were thinking of coming to us.
