About Neil, Katya and Mila

I am Scottish born and bread, but lived in Ukraine the for the past ten years where I had small publishing business. I got married there

and we have a beautiful baby girl. We returned to Scotland earlier this year and bought Strathassynt Guest House and the self-catering cottage. We're working hard to make sure all our guests enjoy their time here.

We run the guest house right next door to the cottage, so we're almost always on hand to answer questions, offer advice or solve problems.

Neil, Katya and Mila purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Neil, Katya and Mila chose Ballachulish

The cottage is a good size, but at the same time cozy and homey. It has everything you need, and with the pub across the road and the supermarket right behind, it's rural living without the inconvenience. It's really an excellent place to relax and recharge, and/or enjoy the great outdoors, while at the same time having everything you need right on your doorstep.

Ballachulish is a place we used to come as a family when I was a child. I have the fondest memories of the place. The sun might not always shine, but we always had the greatest time. The peace and quiet and spectacular scenery really make this a special place for me and my family.

What makes this cottage unique

What's really special about this place is that it has all the beauty, tranquility and outdoor activities anyone would want from a get-away-from-it-all holiday, while at the same time having everything you need inside or nearby for a hassle-free break.

Very comfortable and had all the facilities needed

  • 4 of 5

Spacious property in stunning surroundings, pity about the weather but did manage to make the gondola ride up Annoch Mor mountain in the Nevis Range. Ferry ride across to Mull was a washout but sampled the local brew instead

Clean and tidy excellent location

We were a family of 4 and the accommodation and location was ideal for us. We enjoyed the Laroch restaurant and the walks, especially the walk in Ballachulish itself. I would recommend - Thanks Neil

Comfortable, spacious and convenient cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was always warm when we returned from our outings. Beds and sofas all really comfy. Co-op, pub and chippy (only open end of the week) all next door. Great place to come back to after a days activities.

Great location, great accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage. It was clean, comfortable, and had plenty of space for our family of four.

Neil was right next door and available for questions and help. When we mentioned it would be nice to have a French press for coffee, one arrived later that day. Our kids loved the selections of movies to choose from after a day of hiking or a rainy evening.

Location in Glen Coe area was perfect.

Car: recommended

Ballachulish, on the banks of Loch Leven, is a delightful little village surrounded my majestic mountains. Only a mile from atmospheric Glencoe, one of the most beautiful locations in Scotland, it is excellent for outdoor enthusiasts of all sorts, including mountain bikers, hikers, hill walkers, rock climbers and more.

Here you can hike and climb in the mountains around Glencoe and Glen Etive, as well as parts of the West Highland Way, the Ballachulish Horseshoe Ridge and many Munros. Ben Nevis and Glen Nevis are only 20 minutes away by car.

There are all sorts of outdoor pursuits available in the area including kayaking, fishing, canyoning, and ice climbing to name but a few.

There's golf at the Dragon's tooth, whisky distilleries in Oban and Fort William, and more history than you can shake a stick at including many ancient castles.

And if you want a little soul recharge surrounded by peace and quiet, then this is the place. But with all modcons including a great pub/restaurant just across the road, and a supermarket right behind.
