We take pride in using quality produce and showcasing some of the best local and Scottish Food producers in the breakfast we prepare. Scotland’s food comes from unspoilt habitats and varied weather, which are perfect for producing a wide variety of high quality fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, meat and much more.

Take a look at the world map on the wall, it is great to see how far people have travelled to the small village of Ballachulish to stay with us. Maybe you will be able to add a pin into your home town if it’s not already been taken.
