Alltshellach

Scottish Highlands

10682_0005 - Alltshellach - Exterior

Situated in a stunning location on the shores of Loch Leven, Alltshellach is a stately Scottish house set amid a rugged landscape. The house is a picture of Highland solidity, with spectacular views of craggy mountains and grassy slopes beyond the loch. This pocket of domesticity lets you admire nature at your leisure though, sipping tea or G&T as you watch clouds scud across the sky. In fact, this one-time home of the Bishop of Argyll & the Isles has been recast as a hiker’s hotel, with an air of old-world splendour, excellent accommodation, a generous indoor pool, three lounges and a supremely cosy Highland Bar that’s well-stocked with local beer and whisky, all of which is (almost) enough to distract you from the vast vistas over the waters. But it’s the great outdoors you’re here for and the house is ideally situated for accessing the Mamores, the mountains of Glen Coe and tackling Ben Nevis as well as bagging munros and spotting local wildlife.

Need to know

Important Covid-19 steps we have taken for guest safety: Please Read

As we slowly reopen in the wake of the Coronavirus lockdown, our country house stays are set to be organised a little differently; extra steps have been taken to keep our guests, house teams and leaders safe while we return to action. We ask all our guests to respect the measures put in place.

Initially the overall capacity of the houses has been reduced. Guests must wear face coverings in public spaces. To adhere to social distancing guidelines, we have taken the necessary steps to space out furniture and seating in public areas. In addition, a one-way system will be in place around the house. Adequate signage will be displayed to support the direction of travel to be followed by guests and house teams.

As a temporary measure, we will not be servicing rooms during a stay. Extra tea, coffee, milk, and toiletries will be made available on request for all guests. It is recommended that guests bring their own toiletries for the duration of their stay. We have removed all non-essential and reusable items from our rooms for the meantime including cushions, hairdryers, bathrobes, bed throws, and printed materials to reduce the number of items that need to be disinfected. Hairdryers will be available on request. Clean towels will be available on request. We will though be increasing the frequency of cleaning in our public areas providing particular attention to frequently touched items including door handles and handrails.

For now, there is no cream tea on arrival day. We have also adapted our food offering to remove all buffets and open food items. Different sittings may be required for breakfast and dinner due to the occupancy and size of the house. Picnic lunches will now be pre-ordered the night before from an order form in the room. The bar in each country house will be open, and we will be offering a table service for drinks. At this time there is no, or only a very limited, evening social programme available. Outdoor swimming pools at those houses that have them will re-open throughout August, except at Freshwater Bay House, where the pool will remain closed for 2020. Indoor swimming pools will remain closed.

For more information and to see all the steps taken, visit our page on how house stays will be adapted.

Rooms

Tea & coffee-making facilities, TV, Hairdryer, Toiletries, Wi-Fi

There are 38 comfortable bedrooms, all in the main house, with a range of ‘Good’, ‘Better’ and ‘Best’ options to choose from. Rooms radiate cosiness thanks to little touches – a remedy for even the dreichest day. Those with a view are worth the extra spend, as you’ll be overlooking the gardens and loch. The Best rooms include Room 21, a spacious corner room with lovely views of Loch Leven, while Room 23 is a stately showstopper that was once the official Bishop’s bedroom, complete with original features and cracking views.

All ‘Good’ rooms are ensuite and furnished to a high standard. There are also several ‘Better’ and ‘Best’ Rooms that are either larger or have a desirable view, a more luxurious mattress and larger televisions – upgrade your stay for just an extra £15-25 per person per night. You can choose a specific room for an extra £30 per room, subject to availability. Upgrade supplements still apply

Facilities

Free Wi-Fi, boot room and drying room, extensive gardens, heated indoor swimming pool, multi-purpose ballroom, library and board games to borrow

After a day exploring, return to the house and its specially tailored walkers’ facilities. Stroll the gardens that dip down to the loch. The small peninsula at the bottom of the lawns is called An Dunan and often becomes an island at high tide – look for prehistoric rock art cut into the slabs on its side. Make time too to plunge into the heated indoor swimming pool (currently closed) and do a couple of lengths under the watchful eye of the mountains through the panoramic windows. Inside the house, head for one of the communal areas: you’ll have three to choose from and can kick back, relax and catch up with other guests. Later, stop in the Highland Bar for a nip of whisky or a nightcap – the comfy seats make a fine spot for a dram and there’s a range of good single malts to choose from that’ll have you believing you’re living a laird’s life.

Food & Drink

As at all of our country houses, holidays are full board, from afternoon tea served as a welcome treat through that evening’s meal to a hearty breakfast on the day of departure. Lunch is a chance to stock up on our famous picnic snacks. Food at Alltshellach is full of Scottish flavours and focusses on locally sourced and seasonal produce. Once a week the dining room hosts a Local Food Night, when you might be treated to Cullen Skink Soup and a trio of smoked salmon, mackerel pate and steamed mussels with Highland oat cakes, while mains may include Highland game and ‘Barlotto’, a type of nutty risotto made from barley instead of rice. Finish off with a spoonful of Iron Brew Ice, chocolate and marmalade mouse and Atholl brose, a luxurious blend of honey, whisky and carefully selected herbs for a flavour of the Highlands.

Local Area

Alltshellach is situated beside the shores of Loch Leven. This is a spectacular location with magnificent views of the surrounding mountains.

About 2 miles away, across the loch is the village of Ballachulish. Here you’ll find a post office, food store and bank. A much wider range of facilities can be found in Fort William, about 14 miles to the north.

As the adventure capital of Britain, the Lochaber region is a popular destination for all outdoor enthusiasts. During your stay in Glen Coe you may enjoy visiting the following activities and places of interest:

Jacobite Steam Train

Ride the Jacobite steam train from Fort William to Mallaig. This stunningly scenic line includes the famous Glenfinnan viaduct, featured in the Harry Potter films. Steam trains run every day and early booking is reccomended. www.westcoastrailways.co.uk/jacobite

Isle of Mull

Reached by car ferry from Oban, or Lochaline, Mull is one of the most popular Scottish islands. You could visit the colourful harbour at Tobermory or the abbey on Iona. www.calmac.co.uk/mull

Isle of Lismore

The peaceful island of Lismore is ideal for a relaxed exploration. You can hire bikes at Port Appin, about 30 minutes' drive south of Alltshellach, then take the short ferry crossing to the island.

Oban

The bustling harbour town of Oban, about 45 minutes' drive south of Alltshellach, is a popular destination. There's always plenty of activity around the harbour and its well worth the walk up to McCaig's Tower, a remarkable folly built in the style of a Roman ampitheatre, with commanding views over the town.

Eilean Donan Castle

Nearly 80 miles drive north from Alltshellach is this romantic and much photographed Scottish lochside castle. Located on a small island just offshore, the castle is isolated by the sea at high tide, only accessible via a stone bridge. www.eileandonancastle.com

Ice Factor

Try your hand at ice climbing on the indoor wall at nearby Kinlochleven. www.ice-factor.co.uk

[1] => Take the Corran Ferry across Loch Linnhe to the Ardgour Peninsula. Today's easiest option offers a pleasant woodland walk in the grounds of Ardgour House passing a a group of small lochs formed by glaciers 10,000 years ago whilst the medium follows the river from the village of Strontian towards the long-abandoned Bellsgrove lead mines, then returns through the Ariundle Nature Reserve. The hardest option heads to the hills above Strontian ascending on an ancient ‘coffin route’ to Bealach nan Cairn, then following the ridge eastwards to Meall Iain. The descent is through the old workings of the Whitesmith Mine back to the Strontian valley.  [2] => Today's easier option begins with a visit to Dunstaffnage Castle, dating from 1220 and inextricably linked with the struggles to control the western approaches. A coastal walk across Ganavan Hill, with views out to Lismore, Mull and Kerrera, finishes in Oban – the acclaimed ‘Gateway to the Isles’. The medium option involves a short ferry ride to the Hebridean island of Kerrera - a true walkers paradise as cars are banned (except for the local population of 45!). The hardest walk also heads to the 'isles' with a walk on the ever popular Lismore visiting the picturesque old fishing village of Port Ramsay, a Pictish Broch and the ruins of Castle Coeffin. [3] => Discover more about Alltshellach and the local area for ideas on how to fill your free day.  [4] => Take the ferry to Lismore for the easier walk, and have a gentle exploration of this tranquil island. Far reaching sea views and a visit the picturesque old fishing village of Port Ramsay. A coastal walk around the Kentallen Peninsula is today's medium option, a wonderful contrast to the inland mountains. The route takes in Cuil Bay and Kentallen Bay before finishing in Kentallen village. The harder option is a route steeped in history. From the ancient settlement of Duror a walk through Glens Duror and Fhiodh reaches the heart of the mountains. [5] => Discover Glen Coe's turbulant history and connections to the Clan MacDonald on today's easier walk. We'll follow woodland paths to the scenic "Hospital Lochan" then descend to the Clachaig Inn in Glen Coe. The medium option follows the West Highland Way over the Devil's Staircase - a former military route built in the aftermath of the 1745 Jacobite rising-  from Glen Coe to Kinlochleven. The harder option also follows a section of the West Highland Way, crossing Rannoch Moor, a vast expanse of moorland dotted with lochans and surrounded by mountains to finish at the Kings House, said to be one of Scotland's oldest licensed inns. [6] => The easier option follows part the route of the national trail - the Great Glen Way - along the shore of Loch Lochy. The route crosses the Achnacarry Estate, the family seat of the Cameron Clan. The medium walk follows the ‘North Face path’ through forestry to reach a viewpoint with magnificent views across to the North-east face of Ben Nevis before continuing past the Glen Nevis Distillery and Inverlochy Castle into Fort William. The harder option ascends to the climbers’ hut below the mighty north face of Ben Nevis then contours below the massive Castle Ridge buttress to descend via the Pony Track to Glen Nevis.

[1] => Distance: 6 miles (9.5km) Total Ascent: 4,150 feet (1,280m) This walk traverses the complete southern ridge of Glen Coe, which is largely hidden beyond the Three Sisters, and covers some impressive mountain terrain. A classic and strenuous walk on one of Scotland’s most complex and interesting mountains. We start by a steep ascent to gain the northern end of Beinn Fhada, the third Sister. We follow the ridge to a rock buttress which we ascend with a short section of Grade 1 scrambling on good holds, The Bad Step, and on over a narrow rocky ridge to gain the summit of our first Munro Stob Coire Sgreamhach. We head west along the rocky ridgeline to the twin summits of Bidean nam Bian, our second Munro and highest mountain in the area, and then on over Stob Coire nam Beith. From here we descend steeply back to the Glen and a well earned drink in the famous Clachaig Inn.   [2] => Distance: 6½ miles (10.5km) Total Ascent: 3,300 feet (1,020m) The south side of Glen Shiel presents an imposing ridgeline of seven Munros. This walk takes in two of the Munros; Aonach air Chrith and Maol Chinn-Dearg in a sporting round of the trembling ridges. After crossing the valley bottom we have a steep ascent over rough terrain to gain A’Chioch and the start of the easy scrambling over its sharp summit crest. More scrambling (short sections of Grade 1) over the rocky connecting ridge (Druim a’ Ciche) to gain the main summit. We continue along the airy coire rim to our second summit from where we descend down Druim Coire nan Eirecheanach, the path becoming progressively easier as we descend.   [3] => Distance: 10 miles (16km) Total Ascent: 4,550 feet (1,400m) The peaks of the Grey Corries provide the spectacular white ridgeline that can be seen to the south from Spean Bridge and give a very pleasant ridge-walk in a remote location. We start at the eastern end and ascend the grassy northern ridge to gain Stob Choire Claurigh - our first Munro. From here the narrow Grey Corries ridge is spread out before us with Ben Nevis providing a soaring backdrop. Undulating over a succession of tops and never dipping below 1020m the ridge provides such interest that the journey seems almost effortless. We pass over Stob Coire an Laoigh our second Munro and on to Stob Coire Easain where we turn north and follow a tributary ridge back to the forest and our starting point.   [4] => [5] => Distance: 11½ miles (18km) Total Ascent: 4,850 feet (1480m) Climbing Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Britain, should be on everyone’s bucket list and the Carn Mor Dearg Arête provides a magnificent route up. We start at the North Face carpark and make our way up onto the ridge leading up to Carn Mor Dearg, a Munro, from where we get views of the impressive north face of Ben Nevis. The ridge now narrows to form the famous CMD Arête. It is more of a clamber than a scramble but the slopes on either side are very steep. Eventually the arête merges into the side of Ben Nevis which we ascend steeply to join the crowds on the summit. Descent by the Pony Track leads us to a well-earned drink in the Nevis Inn.   [6] => Distance: 10 miles (16km) Total Ascent: 4,900 feet (1500m) The bold peak of Ben Starav occupies a commanding position at the end of the beautiful Glen Etive. A steep ascent gives access to an exhilarating high-level ridge walk. From the Glen we ascend the north ridge which sweeps up directly to the summit of Ben Starav our first Munro. We head east along the sharp arête involving some easy scrambling to Stob Coire Dheirg. We then descend steeply to the Bealach before ascending again to Glas Bheinn Mhor, our second Munro, we continue along the ridge until a steep descent leads to the Allt Mheuran which we follow back down to the Glen.   [7] => Enjoy a final breakfast before making your way home.  ) [href] => NOT IN USE [operating_months] => Array ( [0] => 1 [1] => [2] => [3] => [4] => [5] => [6] => [7] => [8] => [9] => [10] => [11] => ) [from_prices_detailed] => Array ( [GBP] => Array ( [Land Only] => 849.00 ) ) [was_prices_detailed] => Array ( [GBP] => Array ( [Land Only] => 899.00 ) ) [date_flags] => Array ( ) [list_image] => https://i.assetzen.net/i/CgjTKa70V4M0/w:506/h:283/q:70.jpg [images] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [id] => 760 [asset_id] => 2668 [title] => Ben Nevis from Corpach, Lochaber, Scotland [alias] => 1562227962-116919-ben-nevis-from-corpach-lochaber-scotland [title_alias] => [description] => Imported from External System Original File Path: '3.

There’s something magical about walking in winter. Whether it’s the frosty footsteps, the clear crisp air, or the breathtaking views, it’s a wonderful time to go walking. Join our festive breaks and choose from a guided walking holiday in the company of one of our knowledgeable leaders. We pull out all the stops on our festive holidays, with fabulous food, lots of seasonal entertainment and great walks and activities. The walks are tailored to the time of year and will remain flexible to suit the weather conditions. Each day three grades of walk will be offered. So wrap up warm, lace up your boots and go for an invigorating walk. The walks in the West Highlands can be sublime at this time of year, however they can be also be challenging because of the combination of short daylight hours and sometimes extreme weather. We will not be walking on terrain which demands specialist skills and equipment such as ice axes and crampons. [description] =>

[1] => Glen Nevis provides the starting point for the easier walk; we follow the river downstream along part of the West Highland Way to Fort William. The medium walk starts at the head of Glen Nevis and explores the dramatic gorge which leads up to the meadows below the superb Steall Falls. The harder aims right for the heart of the spectacular mountain scenery under the north face of Ben Nevis, offering arguably the finest views of Britain’s highest mountain before walking down to Fort William. [2] => We’ll build up an appetite as we explore locally. Our shortest walk goes along the shoreline of Loch Linnhe on a cycle track that follows the route of the old railway from Ballachulish, before returning the same way. En-route we can visit the monuments to James Stewart and the Appin murder that features in ‘Kidnapped’, written by Robert Louis Stevenson. Stretch your legs further on the medium walk as we take good forest tracks and paths towards Ballachulish, via Gleann a’ Chaolais, on the other side of the iconic bridge. The harder walk has the pink quartzite summit of Sgorr Dearg in its sights, weather permitting. [3] => We travel east up Loch Linnhe towards Kinlochleven, one-time centre of an important aluminium smelting industry and where all today’s walks finish. The easier walk starts with a gradual ascent to Mamore Lodge, and joins the old military road for a foray to the foot of the giants of the Mamore hills. The medium starts from Callert on the northern shore of Loch Leven, and takes a steep path up to a low point on the main ridge before continuing on the West Highland way to Kinlochleven. The harder takes a similar line but heads for the summit ridge taking in Mam na Gualainn and Beinn na Caillich before its descent to the village.

At 4,411 feet high (1,345m) Scotland’s most iconic mountain stands a good 1,200 feet higher than England’s highest. The large numbers of peak baggers and charity walkers it attracts can belie its challenge; you’ll need to be reasonably fit with stamina (we allow up to 9 hours) to have a go at this and will need to have done some hill walking. The “main track” we follow (once a bridle path for ponies to access a now-ruined observatory on the summit) follows broad rocky slopes with increasingly impressive views of the mountains on the other side of Glen Nevis. The weather can be fierce so we will choose the better of the two days available to us. On the other you can relax in our superbly sited Alltshellach, with one of the best hotel pools in the Highlands where you can ease your muscles, or join us on a shorter warm-down or warm -up walk, also guided by one of our experienced walks leaders.

[1] => We will use today to go for a shorter warm-up walk and get to know each other, depending on the weather. Your Country house sits on the very edge of Loch Leven with inspirational views and spectacular walks nearby. [2] => An early start sees us in beautiful Glen Nevis, under the towering hulk of “the Ben’s” western slopes. Before you know it we’ll be at the “half way Lochan” and then counting down the series of huge zig zags up the flank of the mountain until you reach the magnificent rocky summit plateau. You’ll need to be able to keep a steady pace but we’ll have plenty of stops to rest, eat and stay hydrated. We return the same way. [3] => Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before making your way home.  ) [href] => NOT IN USE [operating_months] => Array ( [0] => 1 [1] => [2] => [3] => [4] => [5] => [6] => [7] => [8] => [9] => [10] => [11] => ) [from_prices_detailed] => Array ( [GBP] => Array ( [Land Only] => 429.00 ) ) [was_prices_detailed] => Array ( [GBP] => Array ( [Land Only] => ) ) [date_flags] => Array ( ) [list_image] => https://i.assetzen.net/i/CgjTKa70V4M0/w:506/h:283/q:70.jpg [images] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [id] => 760 [asset_id] => 2668 [title] => Ben Nevis from Corpach, Lochaber, Scotland [alias] => 1562227962-116919-ben-nevis-from-corpach-lochaber-scotland [title_alias] => [description] => Imported from External System Original File Path: '3.
