If the picture in this article makes you nostalgic for the heady days when we were all bare-faced and sociable, you are not alone!

At the chamber, we love to run events that inform, inspire and connect our members, and we are really looking forward to getting people together in a room again – safely – soon.

Plans for restarting ‘in the room’ events are coming along nicely; we are delighted to
announce that we will be taking over Ben Nevis Distillery for this year’s shorter, more-focused Lochaber Ideas Week from November 17-19.

More details on Lochaber Ideas Week will be coming out very soon but it might be time to check that those glad-rags still fit – the Gala Dinner will be back on the menu to round off the week in delicious style!

In the meantime, we are still busy helping our members make connections, even though we are not together in person.

Putting people in touch, sharing member news through our newsletters and social media, reaching out through the chamber for advice and contacts, all help your business to stay connected and make new connections.

We have been delighted to bring on board many new members during the pandemic, and we are proud to be able to support all of our members through this tough time.

Whether you are new to the chamber, a longstanding member, or thinking about joining, we are pleased to help all the businesses in our friendly and supportive Lochaber business network.

If there is something you need assistance with, drop us an email to and we will be in touch to see how we can help.
