    Made our stay very enjoyable. Plenty to do in the surrounding area to keep you occupied even if the weather is typically Scottish.

    The shop is a mere 10 minute walk away with a local pub and takeaway close by. The location is brilliant with some stunning places to visit nearby.

  • "Excellent location for the Glencoe, Oban and Fort William areas."

    Clean, well modernised, and well-maintained cottage, with very practical outside areas for the age of Covid. Kitchen is very well equipped. Initial impressions not great as there are numerous prohibition notices in the cottage, while appliances such as the oven are unusable unless one delves into their instruction booklets. Once these have been understood, it all works OK. Main issue for us was lack of communications, which our group relies on. No phone line or Wi-Fi. Neither are advertised, but I failed to spot this when booking (as I would not then have selected this cottage). There was, fortunately, reasonable 3/4G reception.

  • "This is a beautiful holiday home, clean with everything thought through for an easy stay."

    The place meets all the current COVID rules, is well maintained and the owners obviously take pride in it. The local area is delightful and the numerous walks and activities are impressive. We were able to travel great distances from this location as it is well positioned for visiting areas such as Oban, Fort William

  • "Easy access to lots of great walks."

    Well insulated property, and great heating system (very comfortable even in the depths of the winter). Lots of off-road parking (I'd guess 3 cars). We were 4 adults, but there is plenty of space, and would be comfortable with six adults. All the usual stuff in the kitchen, and everything works. The A82 was diverted a few years ago, this property is on the old A82, so traffic outside is very light. The railway line is directly behind the property, but there are only half a dozen trains per day, and they all stop at the station in the village, so they are going very slow and thus little noise.

This Ballachulish cottage sits in its own private garden and the spacious accommodation will not disappoint.

The modern kitchen/dining room has lovely oak units and a big larder style fridge.

The breakfast bar sits 3 people whilst the dining table seats 6 and double doors open out onto a large decked patio area, ideal for alfresco dining on summer evenings!

With flexible bedroom space, and en-suites to two bedrooms, there is no shortage of facilities to ensure larger groups have a comfortable stay.

Just a mile to the south you can visit Glencoe and savour the atmosphere of times gone by or walk some of the wonderful routes.

Whether walking, climbing, cycling, touring, golfing or watersports, it's all here for you and of course the wildlife is amazing too!

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.
