Welcome to the Loch Shiel Hotel

Loch Shiel Hotel offers a warm and friendly welcome to all.

Our eight comfortable and well appointed rooms offer a peaceful and relaxing retreat from the hectic bustle of every day life and those long days in the hills.

We are a dog-friendly hotel and will happily welcome your four-legged friends for a visit or to stay.  Lunch and evening meals are served daily in our sunlounge or dining room and we stock a good selection of beer and wines in our public bar.  There is a play area for the children and a beer garden for those who wish to enjoy those sunnier days.

Approximately 1 hour from Fort William, Loch Shiel Hotel is situated in Acharacle about 100 metres from the southern tip of Loch Shiel and at the Eastern entrance of the beautiful Ardnamurchan peninsula, the most Westerly point of the British Mainland. The hotel was built in the late 19th century.

For those of you who love the natural beauty and wildlife of the Western Highlands there is plenty to do in the area with its wonderful walks, scenic drives, beaches, boat trips and many other leisure activities including fishing, biking and kayaking.

The area is steeped in history including Bonnie Prince Charlie's landing at Glenfinnan after his journey across the waters of Loch Shiel  in 1745. A visit to the area can also include the many movie locations - from Skyfall (Glen Etive), Braveheart (Glen Nevis and Glencoe), Harry Potter (Glenfinnan), Rob Roy (Glen Nevis, Fort William), Local Hero (Morar/Arisaig) to Highlander (Glenfinnan).
