It’s also the perfect location for those who just want to escape the madding crowd and do a little soul-recharging in the peace and quiet of this beautiful land.

After a good night’s sleep, the most important thing to set you up for the day, and here at Strathassynt we make sure no one leaves hungry! Choose from a wide selection of cereals, fruit juices, yoghurts and fruit with toast and tea or coffee before indulging in a full Scottish breakfast.  We have a large guest lounge furnished with comfortable sofas for lounging or reading, and a table and chairs for snacking or playing games. It’s stocked with a wide selection of games, books, and lots of information on the area. There’s snacks and soft drinks available on an honesty basis, and there’s also our extensive DVD library which you’re welcome to select a movie from for watching in your room.  Every room has its own free parking space on our grounds. There’s a garden to the back of the property where you can sit out on warm evenings, and where the kids can play.  For walkers, climbers and everyone who enjoys the outdoors, we’ve got a drying room where you can put your boots and outer garments to dry off overnight. The area is very popular with cyclists, and Ballachulish is often a stop off for those cycling the famous John O’Groats to Land’s End route, the increasingly popular Durness to Dover route, or the brand new Ballachulish to Oban cycle path. Cyclists are very welcome at Strathassynt, and we have a cycle shed where you can lock up your bike, and spend your time with us safe in the knowledge your bike will be waiting for you in the morning. If you’ve been travelling for a while and want to get your laundry done, we can do a wash and dry for you at only £5 per load. High speed fibre wifi is available throughout the B&B.
