Rhumhor Holiday Lodge is in a wonderfully tranquil location on the shores of Loch Goil admidst breathtaking scenery. The house is set in beautiful grounds and there are stunning views of the loch and mountains from both inside and outside this spacious house. Loch Goil is a very special place, offering a real taste of the Highlands while being just over an hour from Glasgow.

Walkers are spoilt for choice with a variety of walks available through the Argyll Forest Park and the Cormonachan Woodlands. Here you can see red squirrels and deer, and as you walk along the loch you may even spot seals or sea otters. The area is also a haven for photographers and artists who want to capture the amazing scenery and wildlife of the area.

The Drimsynie Estate is a short distance by car from the Lodge and is a purpose built leisure village. It hosts a huge range of activities including an outdoor and indoor children's play area, ice skating, bowls, snooker, amusements, 9 hole loch side golf course, fishing, boat hire and marked walks. Here you will also find a small supermarket and a hotel which has a bar, lounge and restaurant. Rhumhor is in the pretty village of Lochgoilhead at the head of the loch, which has two pubs/restaurants and a small post office. If you fancy a break from self-catering you have a good choice of places to eat close-by.

Loch Goil is the ideal base to explore the Western Highlands and Argyll. You can visit Inveraray where you will find the fairytale castle, the historic Inveraray Jail and Argyll Wildlife Park. Oban (the gateway to the Isles), the pretty fishing harbours of Crinan and Tarbert, the famous Loch Lomond or the magnificent Glen Coe are all within easy distance for a day out.
