The property

This stylish semi-detached cottage is located in North Ballachulish on the northern shore of Loch Leven, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and intriguing history.

Holly Cottage is presented to a very high standard and the smart contemporary interior will be appreciated by guests.

This cottage would be ideal for a family group or group of friends who want to explore the heart of Scotland together!

There are three comfortable bedrooms, one benefiting from en-suite facilities and the open plan living space with its woodburning stove is cosy and welcoming.

The French doors from the living area open out onto a front patio which is an ideal spot from which to appreciate both the stunning loch and mountain views and perhaps enjoy a pre-dinner glass of wine.

The nearby hotel is a short walk away should you simply want a relaxing meal out and the chance to meet some locals.

From this cottage visitors can access some of the most popular areas that Scotland has to offer.

Just a short drive away is atmospheric Glencoe where the famous massacre of 1692 saw the Clan MacDonald of Glencoe annihilated!

Alternatively, take a drive westwards along the famous road to the Isles and visit Glenfinnan where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard to rally the clans and where you'll find the Glenfinnan viaduct, memorably captured in the Harry Potter films.

It all happened in this very area!

Less than an hour away is the coastal town of Oban and from here visitors can visit some of the pretty islands of the west coast such as Mull, Tiree and Uist.

For shopping trips, nearby Fort William has everything and more along with Ben Nevis!

A simply welcoming cottage in a fabulous vibrant location to suit everyone.

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.

Property is available for booking from the 3rd Jan 2020 for 7 nights - this would be £471.00
