Glaschoille House lies on the Knoydart peninsula, some 3 km west of the village of Inverie, on the north shore of Loch Nevis. The location is genuinely isolated, between Loch Nevis (Heaven) and Loch Hourn (Hell), with access only possible by ferry from Mallaig (45 minutes) to Inverie, or a 20 mile hike across country known as the Rough Bounds. There are some seven miles of tarred road on the peninsula, but these have no connection with the main road system, and are used only by the residents who, unlike visitors, are able to have their vehicles ferried over.
During World War II, Glaschoille House was requisitioned for training, and used by the Special Operations Executive (SOE) as a Special Training School, designated STS24b. Its specific function is unknown.
Glaschoille Lodge has become a guest-house, offering self-catering accommodation, with the bonus of a vehicle for use by guests.
