Eredine Cottage, set within the 29 acre private gardens of Eredine House with approximately half a mile of private shoreline and 2 hill lochs, is the ideal location for a fishing holiday in Scotland. It is a wonderful setting for some of the finest game and coarse fishing in Britain. Loch Awe is steeped in history and its magical landscape amid the rugged Scottish west highland scenery make it one of the most picturesque and peaceful stretches of inland freshwater in Scotland.

This gorgeous self-catering cottage is one of the few places on Loch Awe offering launching facilities and boats can be hired locally. Other activities available nearby are pony trekking and horse riding at Inveraray, Ardrishaig and Ardfern, golf at Dalmally, Inveraray or Lochgilphead golf courses, boating, cycling, hill walking, hiking, farm trails, spectacular ferry tours and cruises.
