Ballachulish Slate Quarries and Loch Leven, Ballachulish

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This is really a combination of two very short and easy but contrasting walks. The first is a visit to the old Ballachulish slate quarries which supplied most of Scotland with slates for generations; after this look at industrial heritage the second part of the walk is a delightfully scenic stroll around the peninsula behind the Isles of Glencoe Hotel.


Extremely easy walk, mostly flat terrain on prepared paths.
