Distant Hills Guest House
Distant Hills is an established family run guest house, set in extensive grounds and located at the edge of a quiet Highland village.
Spean Bridge is an ideal base for touring with all aspects of outdoor activities available locally and situated just three miles from the Nevis Range Mountain Experience which includes the mountain gondola, walks and bike trails. Ben Nevis and Loch Ness are each a short drive from Spean Bridge. We will be happy to provide you with day trip ideas once you have settled in.
Distant Hills offers individually designed modern bedrooms with quality linens and lots of little extras. There is a choice of double or twin bedded en-suite rooms all at ground floor level.
At breakfast we aim to provide a wide and tasty choice sourcing our food locally where possible.
The pancakes, fruit compote, jams and marmalade are homemade and of course our eggs come from our own hens. The bacon and sausages, black pudding come from our local butchers.
To help you relax and unwind there is a large bright guest lounge with comfy sofas and armchairs overlooking the garden.
The spacious and colourful garden offers an opportunity to wander beside the stream in the peaceful surroundings with a pleasant outlook to the distant hills of the Grey Corries and Aonach Mor. You can also sit under the shady arbour and enjoy the quiet and tranquillity.
There are a number of eating places in the village and several more in the outlying area. There is a restaurant to suit everyone’s pocket from a two AA rosette restaurant to family orientated restaurants so please ask us for guidance. We can also book a table for you, which is essential in peak season.
We try to minimise our impact on the environment by making use of LED lighting, high levels of insulation, water saving devices, recycling and composting. We source our food as locally as possible and keep our own small flock of 13 hens to produce our free range breakfast eggs.
We aim to establish more wildlife friendly plants and practices in the garden to create a better environment for butterflies, bees and birds.
We have seen the following birds in the garden:
chaffinches, sparrows, blue tits, great tits, coal tits, wrens, siskins, greenfinches, blackbirds, thrushes, robins, bull finch, and occasionally a goldfinch and a dipper. Deer are in the woods around us and occasionally enter the garden to eat some of our garden plants!
From time to time a pinemartin has been spotted and if you see it please let us know as we have to take steps to protect our hens. The hedgehog is harmless!
