Garden Cottage is set on a secluded peninsular in Loch Awe - a truly amazing location, standing 20m above the shore with spectacular views overlooking the loch from all rooms. It is surrounded by a working farm which has highland cattle and blackface sheep. Loch Awe is famous for the British record brown trout as well as its pike and perch fishing. Ben Cruachan overlooks the cottage; a munro to challenge your fitness and with breathtaking views to the Island of Mull from the summit. From the doorstep, forest and open hill walks abound as well as cycling through some of the best and unspoilt scenery in Europe. You are very likely to spot one of the ospreys nesting on Loch Awe and other magnificent wildlife, including red and roe deer, highland cattle and copious bird life in and around the loch.
Inveraray Castle, Crarae Gardens (National Trust for Scotland), Dalhenna Riding Stables and Outdoor Adventure Centre, 3 golf courses, The Seal and Marine Life Sanctuary, the Hollow Mountain Power Station, Bonawe Furnace, Inveraray Jail, Kilmartin Museum and Standing Stones are but a taste of the many varied activities you can choose from within an hour's drive of the self-catering cottage. Loch Awe itself is an unspoilt and quiet loch: boats are available for hire and trips to the many historic islands in the loch make for enjoyable day trips with buckets, spades and barbeques. The romantic ruins of Kilchurn Castle are only a 5 minute drive and this is the most photographed castle in Scotland. There are some great places to eat out in this part of Argyll so if you want a break from cooking on your self-catering holiday then the renowned pub The George is a must, as is the famous Loch Fyne Oyster Bar - there are lots of other excellent restaurants, cafes and pubs in the area serving wonderful local produce. Oban is gateway to the islands so you can take day trips by ferry to Mull, Iona, Coll, Tiree etc if you want to explore these fascinating Western Isles.
