Kinlochleven and the surrounding area
Kinlochleven is particularly attractive to anglers and fishers as in the same spot you can land both freshwater and seawater varieties of a number of fish. Permits can be arranged via the local libraray or Post Office - contact Tara for details.
There is an abundance of local walks ranging from a flat ten-minute stroll to bagging some Munros - a handful of which can be seen from the apartments. Walks in Kinlochleven, West Highland Way.
Kinlochleven itself boasts the world's largest ice-climbing facility, The Ice Factor.
For those of a less vigorous disposition, the River Leven Ales Brewery is located immediately next door to The Ice Factor.
Bikers are particularly at home in Kinlochleven - a biker-friendly village. The scenic route off the A82 (the B863) is 21 miles long and fabulous for motorcycles and sports cars!
The Scottish Six Days Trials competition is held in Lochaber and begins every May Day weekend. It tests the world's best trials riders in extraordinary conditions and Kinlochleven boasts a local champion, Gary MacDonald. The event is preceded by the Pre-65 Trials within Kinlochleven itself.
We are extremely proud to recommend the Loch Leven Seafood Cafe & Centre, which is located five miles along the North road. Excellent reviews.
