At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.
To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.
We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device. In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).
The Ballachulish Hotel at Glencoe has undergone a £1.3million investment as it re-opens its doors.
Owned by the Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, it officially re-opens on Monday April 26 following the easing of lockdown restrictions across Scotland and the return of the hospitality sector.
The four-star hotel, dating back to 1877, has undergone a significant refurbishment of its 53 bedrooms and restaurants to ensure guests can enjoy a memorable break in the Highlands.
With its location situated proudly amongst the world-renowned highlands of Glencoe, guests are surrounded by a stunning Scottish outlook that takes in Loch Linnhe and Loch Leven.
At the height of the season it employs more than 40 members of staff and is currently recruiting.
Stephen Leckie, Chief Executive Officer of Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, added: ‘By investing in our Ballachulish Hotel, we have ensured our guests can have the best experience possible, beginning with a warm Scottish welcome.
‘We are committed to investing, not only in our portfolio but also in Scottish tourism as it begins to rebuild, and we look forward to opening our doors.’
The dog-friendly hotel is described as the perfect base for walks, hikes and bikes to explore Glencoe, Fort William and the surrounding area.
If relaxing in a swimming pool sounds more appealing, the leisure centre of the nearby sister hotel, the Isles of Glencoe, are fully accessible to Ballachulish guests.
