Achintee Farm is in Glen Nevis, beside the river, at the start of the Ben Nevis Footpath. We offer a peaceful, relaxing stay with plenty of walking right from the door.
Only 2kms from Fort William, Achintee is also centrally located for day trips to, for example, Loch Ness, the Isle of Skye, and the white sandy beaches at Morar. Take the steam train to Mallaig, a boat trip to Seal Island, or a mountain cable car ride at Aonach Mor.
Mountain Biking, canoeing, fishing, horseback riding, golfing and skiing are also available locally.
You can rely on our local knowledge for advice and guidance.
