Area & Activities:
The tourist office in the village has information about
the numerous attractions and activities in the area.
Also in the tourist office there is a small exhibition
about the slate industry for which Ballachulish is well
There are various walks of different grades which can
be made directly from the village, sailing, kayaking
etc. on Loch Leven and bicycling on the new route which
is being opened up between Ballachulish and Oban.
The area is not all about outdoor activities and
Glencoe and Lochaber have some stunning scenery.
Take the gondola at Nevis Range outside Fort William
and see the views of the Great Glen or stroll along the
Caledonian Canal or take the popular summer steam train
from Fort William to Mallaig crossing the Glen Finnan
viaduct (of Harry Potter fame).
Oban with its constant ferries has much to offer and is
within an hours drive. You will find a week is not long
enough to sample everything on offer in this part of the
Scottish west coast.
