The Dragon’s Golf Course
The Dragon’s Golf Course at Ballachulish is only 15 mins drive from Creagan. Situated just beside Loch Linnhe and with the mountains of Glencoe looming as a backdrop, this amazingly located golf course is sure to please. The recently opened Garden Centre and Café are worth a short stop.
Glencoe is situated about 20 mins away from Creagan. Made famous by the massacre of the Macdonalds by the Campbells in 1692 whilst they slept, this is probably the most famous glen in Scotland. The villages of Glencoe and Ballachulish nestle under shiny hillsides, the mine-faces of which provided the slates which cover many rooftops, both locally and worldwide. The ‘glen’ or valley of Glencoe itself offers majestic views on a scale of the grandeur of the alps. A visit to the National Trust Centre is good for a rainy day.
Holroyd’s Art Gallery
Holroyd’s Art Gallery has a large selection of oils, watercolours and pastels. Established in 1912 there is a mix of local artists as well as some well-known names. Clearly signposted just off the A82 north of the Ballachulish Bridge there is plenty of free car parking.
Fort William is the second nearest town to us and sits in the shadow of Britain’s highest mountain Ben Nevis. At only 45 minutes away it’s High Street offers a number of individual and touristy shops as well as cafes. There is also a leisure centre with swimming pool & gym and an indoor bowling alley. An all-year destination, the area around Fort William offers numerous outdoor activities as well as ski-ing in winter at Nevis Range.
