New Ballachulish Visitors Centre Website
Hasn't this got to be one of the loveliest settings for an Information Centre, you'v e ever seen?

It is run brilliantly by Simon and Mags. They are always welcoming, with warm smiles, teas and coffees, and a wide range of gifts to take home for friends.

The website is a first for them. There are pages about the area, and a good page on fishing. You don't have to take your own fishing tackle with you, to Glencoe and Ballachulish, you can hire it from Simon's hardware shop just across from the Tourist office. You can make free telephone calls to local accomodation.

Did you know that Queen Victoria stopped in Ballachulish and thought it a "pretty and tidy place" She admired the huge slate mines which were being worked in those days - just on the hill behind the Office - and you can take a trip around them to-day.
