Ardvullin Holiday Home

Welcome to Ardvullin!


Ardvullin is an attractive stone built house which dates from 1780, and is now used as a large holiday home and activity centre for disadvantaged children. It was originally built as a ghillie’s cottage but was extended between 1800 and 1860 into a much grander highland home which can now sleep up to 18 people.


The house enjoys a scenic and tranquil highland setting, surrounded by Loch Linnhe on three sides. It’s set back from the water’s edge protected by woodland and moorland behind, with gardens running down to a delightful inland loch. The house has an open outlook to the south west with spectacular views down Loch Linnhe towards Lismore and Mull.


Fort William is the main town in the area with a good range of shops and a railway station. The area is popular for hill walking and skiing.
