Full Property Details :

Loch Awe-side Forest Cabins consist of a selection of 7 well presented log cabins on the shores of Loch Awe in Argyll. With a choice of loch side or forest cabins, these well equipped holiday rentals provide a relaxing base from which to explore this stunning area. Our Woodland & loch view cabins have recently been awarded a Visit Scotland 3 star rating and now include WiFi / internet access.

Overview:

Situated by the shores of Loch Awe, one of Scotland's largest and most beautiful fresh water lochs, Loch Awe-side Forest Cabins provide a charming, peaceful holiday retreat amid the stunning scenery of Loch Awe and the Inverlever Forest.

The cabins are approximately five minutes walk from the village of Dalavich which has a shop, cafe and post office where you can enjoy a morning coffee, light lunch or simply stock up with groceries.

Included in the rental of the cabins are the rights to fish from the shore, at designated areas along the length of the site and from a boat anywhere on the Loch. Also included is the use of the landing area to launch your own boat from. There is parking space for two cars next to each cabin.

A bar/restaurant is situated at the end of the cabin site which is owned by the village but guests from the cabins are warmly welcomed. The bar is open 7 nights a week (April to October) and 4 nights a week (November to March).

There are many beautiful forest walks in the area, including The Oakwood Trail, The Avich Falls Trail and Duncan's Walk, all of which meander through ancient oak and pine forests. Pine marten, fox, wild cats red deer, roe deer, otter and red squirrels can often be seen. There are also regular sightings of eagles and ospreys. Apart from the signed trails, there is up to 100 miles of forest tracks and roads in the area, suitable for the serious walker or mountain biker.

Loch Awe itself is beautiful, far away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, and as of now, still under-developed with no noisy watersports to shatter the peace. It has many islands worth visiting, including Innis Chonnel Castle, the first stronghold of the Campbells. The fishing is legendary with monster trout up to 30lb (~14Kg), salmon, sea trout, pike, perch, char etc, depending on the season.

Approximately 40 minutes drive from Oban, 2 hours from Glasgow and 2.5 hours from Edinburgh.
