See & Do
The entire area of Lochaber offers it all, Majestic mountains, glorious glens and lovely lochs. Every day is different, every view is different each time you see it.
The Onich Hotel is located in the most beauiful area - midway between Fort William and Glencoe on the loch-side (Loch Linnhe) and the hotel boasts the most amazing panoramic views towards the Morvern Hills and the Isle of Mull to the south and the Pap of Glencoe to the north.
Fort William and Glencoe are not just for the adventure seekers but with such a wealth of amazing outdoor activities on our doorstep it's hard not to be tempted to take part. Nearby Glencoe Activities offer up to 20 activities to choose from including Segways, Fast Boat Trips or high adrenalin Via Ferrata (new for 2014)!
There is also plenty to see and do for those seeking a more sedate experience and those interested in exploring the history and heritage available nearby. The National Trust Glencoe and Glencoe North Lorn Museum are great spots to research local history - as the area is steeped in history, the events of which have had a major impact on the national and international scene, whether it was the Massacre of Glencoe in 1691 or in more recent times when troops from all over the Highlands and islands were billeted and trained in Achnacarry before being sent to fight in the two World Wars.
For those who seek relaxation, there’s no shortage of activities also. Take the Jacobite Steam Train, featured in the Harry Potter films, from Fort William to Mallaig passing Glenfinnan where Bonnie Prince Charlie landed in the 1745 Jacobite Uprising. Or why not try a round of golf at the beautiful Dragon's Tooth Golf Coursejust across the loch. Guests at Onich Hotel have access to preferential rates - ask at reception. Or enjoy a coffee and browse for gifts at The Quarry Cafe & Gift Shop, Crafts and Things Glencoe or the new Cabin Cafe and Garden Centre next to the Golf Course.
For foodies, the area is spoilt for choice for places to eat out. With an abundance of fresh game and West Coast seafood, Lochaber is a foodie’s paradise. To complement your meal there are a good choice of local ales and of course whiskies.
