Famously, Queen Victoria was seldom amused but what she lacked in the rib-tickling department she made up for in her appreciation of beauty.
Once, after sailing on the Ballachulish Ferry, she referred to the Ballachulish Hotel by writing in her diary that she had seen the ‘beautiful hotel’.
Book in today’s Big Deal and you can enjoy a romantic overnight break for two in the beautiful Ballachulish Hotel.
Built in the Scots Baronial style, it really is a striking building and the surrounding scenery is just as eye-catching.
This tremendous Big Deal is for two people to relax with an overnight stay in a standard double or twin room. A two course evening meal is included in the offer as is a full Scottish breakfast in the morning. You can also enjoy a night in the bar with a £20 drinks voucher – part of the offer.
Dramatically located at the foot of Glencoe and on the shores of both Loch Linnhe and Loch Leven, the Ballachulish Hotel is perfectly placed for outdoor enthusiasts.
Some of the finest walking, climbing and mountaineering in the UK is right on the doorstep.
Whether you want to get roped up and scale high peaks or get wrapped up in a book, the Ballachulish Hotel is the ideal spot for a romantic break.
The hotel is equipped with mod cons such as WiFi throughout but the comfortable bedrooms reflect the building’s Highland heritage in their traditional decor.
Roaring log fires and the atmospheric architecture of the Ballachulish make it a welcoming spot to linger over a book and a dram. The more energetic might choose to use the pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and exercise room in the nearby Leisure Centre – all included in the offer.
Guests are also welcome to one complimentary round of golf at the nine hole Dragon’s Tooth Golf Course next door to the hotel (club hire not included).
The Bulas Bar and Bistro has a stylish contemporary atmosphere and the kitchen prepares daily changing menus which make the most of seasonal, local produce.
As well as a full Scottish breakfast each morning, this offer includes a two course evening meal.
Typical offerings in the Bulas Bar and Bistro might include the Highland game terrine; the West Coast mussels cooked in a red wine sauce with pancetta or the haggis-stuffed chicken breast with bacon potato cakes, neeps and a whisky sauce.
If you like the Highlands then you will love this Big Deal but you don’t have to take our word for it. This is what The Scottish Sun’s Roger Hannah wrote after visiting the hotel:
‘The Ballachulish Hotel was the perfect base from which to investigate everything this wonderful area has to offer. From the moment we stepped inside the hotel – parts of which date back to the 15th century – we felt at home.’
