Langall Cottages The Area

 

 

 

Bishops Bay
Langall Cottages are located at the entrance to Glencoe (The Glen of Weeping), which undoubtedly contains some of the most impressive scenery in the Highlands of Scotland. Mountain peaks rise spectacularly from this magnificent glen where waterfalls tumble and often tranquil lochs reflect the hills above. Whether you are climbing or hill walking, taking a more gentle stroll or just driving, there will be plenty for you here. Below is a brief guide to what's available, but it is far from exhaustive..

Within one hour:

Ardnamurchan & Morvern Peninsulas: Reached by a quick ferry crossing of the Corran Narrows a short distance away, these sparsely populated areas have some magnificent scenery and abundant wildlife. Ardnamurchan Point Lighthouse - the most westerly on the British Mainland - is a popular attraction.

Glencoe: Spectacular scenery carved out during the last ice age with walking to suit all abilities - hidden glens, soaring mountains, misty lochs and winter skiing. The Lost Valley, Buichille Etive Mor, and Stob Ban are popular hikes at all times of the year.

Aonach Mor: Britain's only cable car will take to effortlessly to over 2000ft up this mountain to enjoy the walking in the summer, the skiing in the winter and the views all year 'round.

Ice Factor: Climbing walls and the worlds largest indoor ice climbing wall in all seasons. The Ice factor can be found a short drive away in Kinlochleven. Courses are available for all abilities.

Loch Leven: Ballachulish sits at the mouth of this beautiful Loch where wildlife - including otters - abounds. A whole range of watersports are available in and around the Loch.

Ben Nevis: Britain's highest mountain, at over 4000ft can be tackled in a day trip from Langall Cottages. For the less vertically inclined, Glen Nevis, which is at the foot of the mountain also has some beautiful walks - particularly the one to Steall Falls.

Fort William: Fort William and Lochaber are now designated the official outdoor capital of the UK, which speaks for itself.

Jacobite Steam Train: This train runs the line from Fort William to Mallaig in the summer months. Recently made even more famous by the "Hogwarts Express" in the Harry Potter films, this is a fantastic way to view some beautiful Highland scenery.

Further afield, but all within reach:

Isle of Skye: The famous "misty Isle" can be easily reached from Ballachulish, but leave yourself plenty of time to explore!

Isle of Mull: Another beautiful Island, particularly popular with wildlife watchers due to regular sitings of otters and sea eagles, amongst others.

Loch Ness: Probably the most famous loch in the world is less than an hour away from Langall Cottages.
