Overview

The Well of the Seven Heads is a historic monument on the shore of the beautiful Loch Oich, that tells the gruesome tale of a ancient fued here in the glen. You'll find the Lochside Larder just across the road, our family run business. We offer a general store with a delicious extra: we make delicious home baking and tasty snacks, all to be taken away and enjoyed. We stock basic groceries and essentials such as bread and milk, freezer food, ice-cream, newspapers and alcohol. Free wifi, mobile top ups, stamps and cashback are available too! Enjoy your snacks in our beautiful picnic area with its stunning views of Loch Oich.
