Ballachulish 9.4 miles. A charming annexe-style property resting on the outskirts of the village of Ballachulish which sits at the mouth of the majestic Loch Leven. This romantic retreat is ideal for a couple seeking to explore this part of Scotland carved by its dramatic and beautiful scenery with a diverse range of attractions and activities to suit all ages and tastes. After soaking up the views of your wonderful surroundings with rolling mountains playing backdrop to the property, be welcomed into an interior boasting a real sense of home-from-home. Step into the spacious kitchen, where you will find everything you could need to prepare a delicious home-cooked meal for you and your partner to enjoy at the well-presented dining table with views to enjoy from the window as you tuck into your meal. After dinner, look forward to curling up the sofa with a cup of tea in hand, whilst tuned into the TV with Freeview. The property is completed by the double bedroom, where after an action-packed afternoon you will be delighted to retire to with the benefit of a convenient en-suite shower room. If you can tear yourself away from this rural base, head to the village of Ballachulish where you will find a selection of amenities, including a choice of eateries, pubs and shops. Alternatively, head further afield to Fort William where you can look forward to sampling a traditional ale straight from the local brewery or a Highland single malt within a cosy pub, or spend an afternoon exploring the shops which line the high street. For those feeling active, the surrounding area offers a diverse range of activities which include golfing, fishing and kayaking on the surrounding majestic lochs, or tackle the tallest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis which takes eight hours to climb on average. Garradh Mhor is an idyllic base for exploring this part of Scotland.
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.
