Our local wildlife

Love nature? Love wildlife? Did you know that Pier House is the only B&B in Glencoe uniquely located right on the shore of Loch Leven? All of these photos have been taken from just outside our front door. We can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to watch otters playing while you eat breakfast; but plenty of previous guests have!

Goodbye 2019

A clear & crisp start to the last day of the decade.We hope the festive period so far has been good for you. Here at Pier House we’re looking forward to the arrival of 2020…
