The Location

Approximately a two-hour drive from Glasgow, the property sits in six acres of beautiful countryside directly on Loch Awe – one of the highland’s longest and most beautiful.  The cottage’s surrounding countryside has dramatic mountains ideal for hiking, and plenty of towns and coastal communities with lots to keep you busy.

The incredibly romantic ruins of Kilchurn Castle are nearby and make for an excellent excursion and the buzzing port of Oban, with its pier filled with amazing local seafood and stalls, is also a breeze to get to.

A handful of quality inns and hotels are within three miles, providing dining options ranging from comfort pub dishes, to full-on gourmet meals.  Gorgeous beaches at Benderloch are a 40 minute drive away, and Taynuit’s small shops and golf course are a 20-minute drive.

  • The boathouse has its own private pier with fishing rights, making that pastime ultra convenient and peaceful
  • The upstairs features a glass wall with an incredible panoramic view of the loch as well as the majestic Ben Cruachan mountain that you will never forget.  A truly special backdrop for your getaway
  • If you’re looking for something fun and a bit different, fishing lessons (with breakfast included) and a boat hire can be yours at the nearby Loch Awe boat yard (booking ahead required)
  • The cottage provides a high level of convenience and comfort featuring a modern and well equipped kitchen, whilst retaining a laid back country charm with features such as a wood burning stove and coombed ceilings. A lovely combination
  • Open plan kitchen, diner and sitting room with wood burner (logs provided), plus a second sitting room upstairs, all with amazing views across the Loch
