Historical Connection

The Cameron clan is one of the proudest and most romantic clans in Scotland. From its beginnings in the middle ages, the Clan's early history is notable for the constant battle for possession of land in Lochaber claimed, at different times, by various clans and most notably by the Mackintoshes with whom the Camerons feuded for over 300 years. Also, Achnacarry was used by the Commandos during the Second World War as their training ground and the Cameron of Lochiel family maintains close ties with that illustrious regiment and its affiliated organisations.

Unusual Building

The steading is a recently converted farm building/stables originally built around the mid 1800s. It is a listed building and has been sympathetically converted into spacious apartments with modern interiors whilst still retaining the original facade and charm of the old steading. The whole building can sleep up to 20 people so is also ideal for family gatherings and corporate events.
