Our integrated Care Scheme is nestled at the foot of Sgorr Dhearg in the small highland village of Ballachulish.
Founded in 2003 Abbeyfield Ballachulish Ltd is a Scottish Charity (SC015946), a registered Society under the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations and The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR). We are, therefore, an independent stand alone charity, located in the village of Ballachulish in Highland, providing a unique combination of services in a rural area which cover the villages of Ballachulish, North Ballachulish, Glencoe, Kinlochleven, Onich, Duror, Appin and the settlements of Ardnamurchan.
The Society is overseen by a board of voluntary trustees, recruited from the local area, and managed by a dedicated team.
We provide a 30 bed nursing and residential home, a day care centre with a capacity for 10 people a day and a daily lunch club for the community.
