Accommodation Description:

Situated some twenty miles north of Ullapool on the shores of the picturesque Loch Borralan, The Altnacealgach Motel (known locally as The Alt) lies in the heart of the stunning Assynt area of the beautiful North West Highlands of Scotland.

Previously an old coaching inn & famous fishing lodge on the main A837 Lairg - Lochinver Road the Altnacealgach has been catering for outdoor sportsmen & fisherman since Victorian times. Following a catastrophic fire in 1986 the inn was rebuilt as a pub/restaurant and motel; the pub/restaurant in the old converted barn and the accommodation in a new self–-contained block. The Altnacealgach Motel is set in a peaceful and picturesque location with all rooms looking out across Loch Borralan.

Relax and have a drink or meal next door at the Altnacealgach Inn where you can chat by the fire with other guests and locals. Owners Craig and Sue look forward to welcoming you for your stay!
