Welcome to Lochaline Hotel

We are a cute, cosy, friendly hotel on the West Coast of Scotland with the most amazing view

Our rooms are stylish and comfortable while in keeping with the original building which dates back to 1920 and built from stone mined right next to the hotel. We have an abundance of nature around us with otters, pine martens, dolphins, harbour porpoise, white tailed eagle, oystercatchers, arctic terns, swallows, ringed plover, curlew and many others visiting daily most of the time.

A wildlife wonderland

We are situated amidst the most incredible wildlife in the UK. Not only is the Morvern Peninsula utterly beautiful, but we are surrounded by Otters, Pine Marten, Red Squirrels, White Tailed Eagles, Golden Eagles, Merlin, Peregrine Falcons and numerous other species

Morvern is a Golden Eagle hotspot

A large number of nests on the peninsula means that Goldies are a regular spot

Wildlife photography workshops

We run wildlife photography workshops throughout the year, but particularly in the Autumn/Winter/Spring months. Click for more info.

This is the place for otters!

Loch Sunart has long been famous for its otter population, but the whole peninsula has incredible habitat for otters and they are found all over. We get an otter visiting us in front of the hotel most evenings
