the only house for about 20 miles either way.
Err, whilst it does stand alone, I would think the nearest house would be within a mile, nearest pub not much further, Glencoe village is about 4 miles, and Fort William is probably only 20 miles.
I can remember it's previous owner standing outside waving at the tour buses passing. I can also remember him visiting the shop/post office in Glencoe and finding out it was the owners birthday. At that point he took a card from the display, borrowed a pen and wrote the card. He didn't actually pay for it mind. He wasn't exactly popular in the area from what I remember.
Edit - Doesn't Hamish McInnes live on the old road, down from the Red Squirrel camp site on the way to Glencoe village?
