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, having been given only five months to raise the £1.5m necessary to buy and restore the building. Unknown to the South Lochaber Community Company the Big Lottery Fund proceeds were being diverted to the London Olympics and the funding request was denied. 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.
