Mamore Lodge Hotel is reached by a private tarmac road off the B863 near Kinlochleven. It is best approached from the south via the A82 which runs across Rannoch Moor and through Glencoe. It is in an ideal position to explore the Highlands by car. Mamore Lodge Hotel has retained much of its original character. Built to withstand the extremes of Highland winters, it stands as firm as the solid rock on which it is built.


Company description
The Lodge was used for hunting and as a holiday retreat. The family were great hosts and enjoyed among their noble guests Sir Henry Fairfax-Lucy, Viscount Churchill and King Edward VII.
"The Lodge was built in 1905 on land owned by the Fairfax-Lucy family. It replaced an earlier Mamore Lodge lower down the hill in the village itself. Constructed by British Aluminium - now Alcan Smelting and Power UK - as part of a deal to obtain more land for housing smelter workers in the village of Kinlochleven. Though the plant is now closed, much has been done to transform the village into an atractive walking centre. The new Lodge sits on a plateau, facing south, apporximately 700ft above the village and on the lower slopes of Am Bodach (The Old Man)."
"would yer turn yer arse to the window, Mr King, so Ah cn see ma tape?" said the local tailor from Fort William.

The person to whom that somewhat blunt request was made was none other than King Edward VII.
A further 5 twin rooms with en-suite facilities are provided in a nearby annex.

The restaurant and dining room, as well as the lounge have fine views over the Loch and village to the mountains north of Glencoe.

The bar is an ideal place to rest weary legs at the end of a busy day, with bar meals served.
