Hello – a warm highland welcome to your own modern self-catering Studio at Rowan Brae,  which has been awarded Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence for 3 years running (2017/18/19)


Nestled in a hillside above Loch Leven, our Studios have spectacular views of Glencoe mountains and look out over the beautiful waters of Loch Linnhe, giving you a superb vista from your Studio and its own outside decked seating area.

Set in a peaceful hamlet in Old Town, North Ballachulish, we are excellently  located as a base for you to tour the magnificent West Highlands of Scotland and  its magical islands or to admire the scenic splendour and wonderful wildlife in the local Lochaber area.

Walkers enjoy the varied routes on offer, and  we are just minutes away from Glencoe and its wonderful Mountain Resort with exciting activities throughout the year.   Of the 284 Munroes in Scotland, 35 are within a half hour drive from your Studio.   The Ben Nevis range is also within easy reach, we are on National Cycle Route 78  and just ‘up the road’ from the National Ice Climbing Centre.   See our Things To Do page for ideas of interest – and there is always lots more!

The Studios are just a few minutes from the Tourist Information Centre at Ballachulish which also has a Gift Shop and The Quarry cafĂ©, which serves scrumptious food. There is also a small Co-Op for all your food shop needs with a Post Office and ATM/cash machine.

The local public bar at the Loch Leven hotel is an easy walk from the Studios along the loch side and has a warm convivial atmosphere as well as fine dining – in partnership with them we offer our Studio guests discount vouchers for reduced price meals here.             There are also many other delightful nearby places to drink or eat, particularly the fresh locally caught seafood.

Our aim is to offer you a high standard of comfortable accommodation so you can relax and enjoy your break in this gloriously beautiful area.

We are always around to help with any advice should you need it, and we give you the privacy to let you enjoy your Studio as you wish.

We hope we can welcome you soon

warmest regards   –   Neil  &  Martina
