Aye Ben its been whitewashed but up close you can still make out the graffiti I climbed into the wee ravine in the 90's from the other side of the road and its got a cracking wee waterfall in it... Noo ahm a fat fecker it was just easier to do it from the decking but the trees need cut back now theres no one there to do the upkeep.

Cybers did you look inside the house, I was surprised at how small the living room was but the view of the scenery "beastie boy" had through the patio doors was beautiful.

Dont think there is a complete window in the place Ben and its bolted up tight but i had been in the cottage a long time ago servicing the glazing and was surprised by the owners spartan existence. It was tiny throughout and was barely furnished .... And before any wags start ... naw Savile was at his other gaff in Leeds at the time and it was a wee wummin from Glencoe Village that let me in.

If you have a tablet pooter or phone next time your up there connect to the free wi-fi at the tourist Information at Ballachulish get onto wowcher or last minute.com etc and find the last rooms at the inn .... We done Creagan for 49 quid for the two of us B&B the Friday and Saturday and they were offering up the Sunday when we tried to leave.
