Glencoe House, Scotland, 1905. Built by Lord Strathcona in 1895

Glencoe House is a category B listed[1] four-storey Victorian estate house in Glencoe, Lochaber, Highland, Scotland. Designed by Rowand Anderson, it was built in 1895 by Lord Strathcona for his wife, Isabella.

It was afterwards owned by NHS Highland, and known as Glencoe Hospital. The property was put up for sale after local people failed to raise the £450,000 necessary to buy it under the Land Reform Act. It was sold in 2011 to a private buyer [2][3] and after a restoration it was reopened as a B&B guesthouse in August 2012.
