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 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.

All your meals are included, breakfast with hot and cold options, packed lunch with a choice of sandwiches, snacks, fruit, biscuits and dried fruit and nuts, and three-course evening dinner, made with local produce. Vegetarian meals are always available and any special dietary requirements can be catered just let us know in advance.
