Facilities

We try to provide holiday places we would like to be, (after all we chose to live here!) and hope our guests agree!

 
We are within strolling distance of the Ice Factor, Vertical Descents, Via Ferrata and River Leven Brewery.  We are also right next to the River Leven, particularly attractive to anglers and fishermen as a variety of both freshwater and seawater fish can be landed at the same spot.  Permits can be arranged via the local Post Office.
As the crow flies, we are 6 miles from Ben Nevis, 6.5 miles from Glencoe Mountain Resort (20 miles by road), 5 miles from the hugely well-acclaimed Loch Leven Seafood Café, which has consistently been reviewed as one of the top five seafood restaurants in Scotland, and 10 miles from Nevis Range Resort (30 miles by road).
The Scottish Six Days Trials (SSDT) competition is held around Kinlochleven and in Lochaber and starts at the May Day weekend each year.  It tests the world’s best trials riders in extraordinary conditions (sometimes snow!) and Kinlochleven boasts a home-grown champion, Gary MacDonald.  The SSDT is preceded by the Pre-65 event which is held in Kinlochleven itself.  Bikers are particularly at home and welcome in Kinlochleven, a biker-friendly village.  The scenic route off the A82 (the B863) through the village is also known as the “Kinlochleven loop”.  At 21 miles long, it is a favourite route for motorbikes and sports cars.
The UCI Mountain Bike Championships take place in June in Fort William each year.
The Ballachulish Tourist Information Centre and Quarry Café can provide you with further information, and with fabulous cakes too!
We recommend the Mountain Weather Information Service for accurate, local weather forecasts for climbers.
Walking in Scotland is part of our social history and culture.  Apparently, 30% of folk walk regularly (15% swim and 10% cycle).  The multiple benefits of outdoor activities cover physical, mental & emotional wellbeing. 
 
Glasgow Holiday Fellowship Outdoor Club championed the outdoor life.  The West Highland Way is one of their finest achievements, and is now over 100 years old.  The West Highland Way (Milngavie to Fort William) is just short of 100 miles.  80,000 people walk it every year, 15,000 of them in one continuous journey.  It is Scotland’s first official long distance trail.  Work started on it in 1969 until 1980.  Who knew it would be one of Scotland’s biggest tourist attractions?!
Kinlochleven was granted "Walkers are Welcome" status in 2015 - we are still the only town/village in the Highlands to hold this accreditation and come together as a village to create our annual Walking Festival to maintain this privileged title.
Other pursuits include: mountain biking, off-roading, trials biking, canoeing, kayaking, gorge walking, angling, fishing, road cycling and motorbiking.  Wildlife is in abundance with red squirrels, golden eagles, red deer and pine martens, along with a huge variety of wild birds (binoculars and guidebook in every property!).
