Surrounded by some of the most dramatic and beautiful scenery in Scotland, the village is a perfect base for exploring the amazing landscape of Glencoe.
The world-famous Ballachulish used to be the 'slate capital' of Scotland and the disused quarries can be still seen nearby. Today the village has an international reputation as an idyllic holiday destination which can be enjoyed at any time of year. There is a wide variety of amenities for visitors including hotel accommodation, guest houses and B&Bs as well as host of self-catering establishments and a diverse range of activities including mountain biking, white water kayaking, fishing, playing golf, skiing as well as miles of mountain and forest tracks.
The village is split into two - North Ballachulish and South Ballachulish - and is situated on either side of Loch Leven, where it empties out into Loch Linnhe.
