Achaneich offers two self catering accommodation units near the village of Spean Bridge. They are set amidst some of the most spectacular scenery in the Highlands of Scotland and enjoy a peaceful and secluded location above the River Spean between the villages of Spean Bridge and Roy Bridge.
Both buildings stand in the grounds of Achaneich, Gaelic for “the place of the horses”, an historic highland cottage with origins dating back to 1600. The barn and stables, no longer used for horses, are believed to have been used by General Wade’s forces during the Jacobite uprisings in the 18th Century.
Whether you’re interested in the hill walking (Ben Nevis is just 10 minutes drive away), climbing, fishing, wildlife, winter skiing at Aonach Mor, touring the Highlands or just relaxing in the gardens and paddling in the River Spean at the bottom of the garden, you’ll find that a self-catering holiday at Achaneich is the ideal way to do it. Aviemore, Inverness, Loch Ness, Isle of Skye and Oban can all be reached in less than two hours drive. Fort Willam which – together with the Lochaber Area – has been designated the official “Outdoor Capital of the UK” is just 10 minutes away.
