The property

Ballachulish 1 mile.

This cute little glamping pod lies close to the village of Ballachulish, set amidst some of the most dramatic and beautiful scenery in Scotland.

Presented in an open-plan studio layout, Tigh Na Mara is a romantic dwelling to return to following a day of exploring Glencoe.

Enter the pod via your own private decking and step into the open-plan living space, equipped with all the essentials for a short break, including an oven and hob, microwave and fridge, so you can whip up something tasty when you’re not eating out.

Sit together at the plush sofa whilst catching up on your favourite shows, before washing away the day in the shower room and climbing into bed.

Alternatively, take the evening outside to your private decking where you can enjoy a favourite drink and ponder on where next to explore.

From the door, you can visit the Glencoe Folk Museum, housed in an 18th-century heather-thatched croft cottage, it’s a great opportunity to uncover the history and culture of the area.

Those avid walkers can boost their steps during an adventure through the Glencoe Nature Reserve, crossing over dramatic mountains and deep lochs, or get close to nature on a guided Land Rover Safari.

Ballachulish itself is home to a convenience store and a casual pub, The Laroch Restaurant and Bar, serving an ample menu of refined comfort fare and housemade desserts.

Take a westward drive along the famous road to Isle and visit Glenfinnan where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard to rally the clans where you’ll find the Glenfinnan viaduct, famously captured in the Harry Potter films.

Head to the Woodlands Activity Centre in Glencoe, providing a range of activities including Segway, e-bike, archery, laser-clay and whisky tasting, there is sure to be something for everybody!

Tigh Na Mara is a lovely cottage for uncovering the scenic splendour of Glencoe, any time of year.

About the location


Kinlochleven 8 miles; Fort William 15 miles.

Deriving its name from the Gaelic Baile a' Chaolais meaning 'The Village by the Narrows’, Ballachulish straddles the narrows at the mouth of Loch Leven. Encompassing North Ballachulish and South Ballachulish, these two villages were separated until 1975 when the Ballachulish Bridge opened. North Ballachulish sits just across the bridge while South Ballachulish lies 3 miles to the east on the southern side. North Ballachulish offers a hotel and petrol station/shop, whilst South Ballachulish has a supermarket, coffee shop, Post Office, pubs, hotels and a Tourist Information Centre/gift shop. Ballachulish attracts many visitors throughout the year and is a perfect base for those wishing to enjoy outdoor pursuits. Ballachulish once had a major slate quarrying operation which continued for over 250 years until 1955 when the quarry was closed and today the old quarries are now being reclaimed by nature and the area is famous once again but this time as an idyllic holiday location. Nearby Kinlochleven boasts Ice Factor, an indoor ice and rock climbing centre, plus Fort William, with the impressive title of the Outdoor Capital of the UK, is situated 15 miles to the north with access to the famous Nevis Range, and Glencoe is within easy reach. With Fort Augustus and Loch Ness about an hour’s drive away, Ballachulish is a fabulous holiday location.
