Owner description: 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.

The monument is beside the very busy A 82 and it commemorates the revenge attack by one clan bard on the murderers of his clan chief.
There is a free car park about two hundred metres away and you can walk along the pavement to the monument.
It is quite interesting but be very careful crossing the road.

I was kayaking the Great Glen Way, so having a stop with some good cooked food was delightful. The toasties (haggis and onion) plus bacon and egg rolls plus coffee all done fresh and extremely well priced. Managed to get good wifi which was bonus for me.... and the owners as I stayed longer and bought more food to go.
Most just view the monument however go to the stairs on the left and it will take you underneath to the well itself.
Interestingly not long ago seven headless bodies were found berried near by, supporting the story.

We made a quick stop to get lunch to go - a cheese and ham toastie (about £3-£4 from memory) and a soup- food was very good quality and reasonably priced. Staff were very knowledgeable about ingredients (one of us has special dietary requirements) and the picnic area looked lovely but we didn't have time to stop.

Yes you saw correct. It’s seven heads and a dagger......as driving along Loch Oich.
The monument was erected in 1812 in recognition of a vengeance massacre within a Highland Clan in 1663. Best you google the story behind the massacre yourself and consider the lawlessness of the clans and the Highland justice system.

More Invergarry than Spean Bridge.
Had passed here many times, stopped this time as it was so early in the morning our usual stop was closed. from memory they open at 6am.
Ordered breakfast rolls and coffee x 3. Rolls were very satisfying and coffee which is from a serve-your-self machine which in my opinion was a bit weak for my taste but fine never the less.
It looked like they are refurbishing the cafe which is a bit airy of a winters morning.
Having said that, i'll be back.
