Welcome to Gualachulain Bothy (pronounced Goolahoolin!), a Gaelic name which means "Holly on The Bank". Situated at the end of stunning Glen Etive, it overlooks Loch Etive and is surrounded by beautiful mountains. Sleeping 6 in bunk beds, it has recently been renovated to accomodate groups of hikers. mountian bikers, etc. Availble for a 2 nights minimum stay, but for as long as you wish, it's the ideal base for exploring all that Glen Etive, the River Etive and Loch Etive have to offer.

The space
Situated at the head of Loch Etive, next to our holiday house Hollybank, The Bothy is an 18th century building, found at the end of the road that leads down the glen. From the A82 it is a 13 mile drive along a single track road, passing through some of the most beautiful landscapes in Scotland. It is secluded, suiting those in search of peace, quiet and solitude. Being 20 miles from the nearest amenities in Glencoe and Ballachulish it is important to be well stocked before you arrive!

The Bothy is designed with outdoor pursuits in mind so there is a lovely log burner, a drying room, a well equipped kitchen, and a lovely hot shower, provided by a gas boiler to heat the water and the house - and all with stunning views south down Loch Etive.
