Alltschellach - our base in Scotland


On our Scottish courses you’ll stay at Alltshellach, a fantastic hotel owned and run by HF Holidays in comfy en-suite rooms (normally shared). So, if you are coming with friends or family you can request to share a room with them, if you are coming on your own we’ll try to put you in a room with someone of a similar age on your course. Each room has tea and coffee making facilities so you can have a morning or bedtime brew in the comfort of your room and all bed linen and towels are provided.

The swimming pool and spa

If you wish to upgrade to a single occupancy room please contact the Plas y Brenin bookings team on 01690 720214 or .

This year, unless otherwise stated, the cost of all our courses in Scotland includes bed and breakfast after your course finishes. So you can begin your journey home in the morning, rested and well fed.

HF Holidays are happy to extend your stay prior to your course or for additional nights after, to arrange this please contact then on 0208 7321247 or jamie-leewhite@hfholidays.co.uk.

The hotel has efficient drying rooms so when you come in from a day out you can dry out any kit for the next day and there are also laundry facilities. Alltshellach also has a handy shop for any little essentials you may have forgotten such maps, poles, socks, gaiters, sit mats, postcards and a range of toiletries.

The hotel has three comfy lounges to relax in, one of which has free WiFi plus a swimming pool to ease aching muscles. There is also a cosy bar to relax in and is always well stocked with Scottish whisky and local beer.
