On the shores of Loch Linnhe and Loch Leven and at the foot of the dramatic Glencoe, the Ballachulish Hotel provides a warm welcome all year round. The baronial spledour and old warm charm of this characterful hotel makes it the perfect place for a relaxing break. Located at the "crossing of the waters" just two hours drive from central Scotland. The Ballachulish Hotel is the perfect base for short breaks at any time of the year. Guests come time and time again to enjoy walking, golfing and sightseeing amongst many other activities but many just choose to snuggle up by the real log fires with a glass of their favourite tipple and a good book whilst the stresses of everyday life melt away.

Chieftains, Clansmen, Adventurers - all men met at the “crossing of the waters” in this celebrated drovers Inn. Over a hundred years ago the hotel took its present fine form. Parts of the existing building date back to the 15th century and the current baronial facade was added in the 19th Century. Set against the massive Ben Vair mountain range in a spectacular swirling lochside location, the building is a sentinel both to its own past and the rich history of the surrounding area. Visiting the Highlands, Queen Victoria commented in her diary on the “beautiful hotel” as she crossed the Ballachulish Ferry. A ferry has run across the narrows for centuries with The Ballachulish Hotel on the southside and The Loch Leven Hotel on the northside acting as staging posts for travellers. The building next to the existing Hotel is a former stables and garage. The ferries finally ceased when the Bridge was completed in 1975. A testimony to earlier times is a rock awash in the narrows known as Clach Phadruig or Peter’s Rock. This was named after a Viking who stepped onto it to try and save his son who was drowning. Local tradition has it that the sheltered waters of Loch Leven were much used by the Vikings. Full Scottish breakfast is served together with a continental cold buffet between 7.30am - 10.00am. The Bulas Bar has a stylish contemporary atmosphere but maintains the important tradition of the roaring log fire. The Restaurant serves a wide choice of dishes, locally sourced were possible, freshly prepared all set against a stunning backdrop of Loch and mountain views. Residents can enjoy free golf at the adjacent 9-hole Dragon's Tooth Golf Course. On the lochside and just two minutes from reception, this course is challenging but rewarding. Residents can also relax and unwind in the leisure centre at the Nearby Isles of Glencoe Hotel. Car Parking available.
