Hillside Chalet
Hillside Chalet self catering Salen Ardnamurchan Scotland

Located in secluded grounds in the picturesque village of Salen, on the Ardnamurchan peninsula, Hillside Chalet is ideally located for exploring the beautiful rocky coastline, secluded sandy beaches of the peninsula and wonderful wildlife, and it provides the perfect base in which to relax and enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of Ardnamurchan.


Hillside Chalet is well equipped:


The Salen Hotel is a 15 minute walk away and provides a warm and welcoming bar and good local food.

There are local provision stores at Salen Jetty Shop just across the road from Hillside, Acharacle (3 miles), Strontian (12 miles) and Kilchoan (19 miles).  There is a local Post Office, now located at the Acharacle Village Store, and Tea Room with Internet Café located at the old Post Office building in Acharacle.  Fuel is available at the Post Office stores in Strontian and at the Ferry Stores in Kilchoan.  

Local shellfish can usually be sourced if advance notice is given the week prior to your stay.

Owner’s Tip
If you want to have a good chance of seeing pine martens and badgers close up outside your chalet, and don’t mind a late night vigil, bring a selection of peanut butter, honey, or jam with you - or for a slightly healthier option, peanuts and dried fruit. We keep logs positioned on the ground in front of the chalet, next to the general wildlife 'feeding station', and the badgers and pine martens can be kept busy for some time licking their tasty treats off the logs - and eating sandwiches! We also have a red squirrel who periodically visits the feeding station to eat peanuts.

COMING  soon for 2018…  THE OWLERY.

A new deluxe accommodation unit will be arriving this Autumn, and will be available for bookings from Spring 2018 onwards.  
Located in the secluded grounds at Hillside, and adjacent to my Great Horned owls’ aviary, it will comprise of a 7.2m x 4m glamping-style pod sited on a large raised deck, which will also include an area for sitting out.  The Owlery pod will be designed and fitted out to a high specification, and aimed at providing accommodation just for couples (and any four-legged friends). 

For those who have stayed at Hillside Chalet before, you will be familiar with the standard of accommodation and facilities I like to provide for my guests, so you know that you will also be assured of an extremely comfortable stay at The Owlery.

Enquiries are welcome, and bookings are being taken now.

Keep watching this site for progress over the Winter and photos once The Owlery arrives at Hillside.
