Late 16th century Ardbrecknish House is in a magnificent Highland setting with wonderful views of mountains and glens. These attractive holiday properties are set amid 20 acres of mature woodland close to beautiful Loch Awe - 26 miles long and Britain’s longest freshwater loch. A whole host of indoor and outdoor amenities are available on site, and although the setting is quiet and peaceful, it is within easy reach of restaurants, shops, golf courses, and the small village of Kilmartin Glen and museum, the richest area in Europe for prehistoric remains, making these properties an ideal holiday location and a perfect touring base. A visitors’ reception/library area provides a wealth of information on the local history, archaeology, wildlife, gardens, forest and hillside walks, as well as the year-round activities available around Argyll and the West Highlands. The Ardbrecknish Room has a welcoming open fire, small dance floor, pool table, darts and Scottish Carpet Bowls. The adjoining cosy traditional bar (food available Mar-Oct) has a woodburner and provides a perfect way to end the day; perhaps sampling one or two of the many malt whiskies. At the shore, just 10 minutes’ walk, motor boats, rowing boats and canoes can be hired to explore the enchanting islands and ruined castles of the loch, or maybe fishing the loch for salmon, char, monster pike and brown trout. A British record brown trout of 31lbs 10oz was caught in March 2002. Tuition and/or a fishing guide is available by arrangement. The surrounding area offers a wealth of interest and fantastic scenery. Opposite Ardbrecknish is majestic Ben Cruachan, and further north are the impressive Glen Coe and Ben Nevis ranges, a mecca for hill walkers all year round. Both regions have ski centres and within an hour’s drive is the busy town of Oban, ‘Gateway to the Isles’, from where modern ferries take you to Mull and Iona, the cradle of Christianity, Staffa, the inspiration for Mendelssohn’s Fingal’s Cave Overture, and to other Hebridean gems. Oban has a sea life centre and an excellent golf course. The elegant town of Inveraray on Loch Fyne only 12 miles away, to the south is the Crinan Canal with its stepped locks, you can walk or drive a delightful route along its 9-mile length. Family-friendly bar and restaurant on site (restaurant open Mar-Oct). Free WiFi
Attie the Stattie is our static caravan, positioned to the west of our family home Hill Park, on Loch Awe side, Argyll. With incredible views towards both Ben Cruachan and Loch Awe, as well as evenings sunsets to the West, Attie is surrounded by panoramic beauty and is the perfect place to escape to. The log burner means Attie has a warm welcome awaiting you - there is a TV, the kitchen is well equipped, there is a loo and shower, and a comfy double bed.
“The setting is ideal for a homecoming, in the countryside and at the same time close to many sites very interesting to see or review. Isobel was charming and her homemade fresh bread was a delight! Also, the cruising at the local pub was friendly and convenient to exchange.”
Nestled in the secluded Inverliever forest, part of a peaceful and pleasant cabin site Oude Cabin overlooks a beautiful burn and is a minutes walk from the picturesque Loch Awe. Featuring a wood burning stove, this cabin is the perfect place to come and relax while enjoying the surrounding nature.
“My family and I stayed in early November and we were lucking with the weather as we had sun everyday but at night it was below 0c, the heating in the cabin is very good and I would recommend using the log burner as it was so cosy siting looking at the flames in the evening. The cabin is in an amazing location surrounded by woods in there autumn colours and next to a small waterfall on the stream that you can hear when you have the window open, the cabin was spotlessly clean and comes with everything you would need other than your food supplies, I would recommend stocking up and bring your food for the stay with you as the nearest big food shop is about one hour drive away, the local shop carries all the essentials if you forget something and also do some hot food and coffee’s. I would also recommend the two Dalavich Oakwood Walks just up the road, they are about an hour each and not to challenging but some lovely views of oak woods and waterfalls. The only negative or positive depending on your point of view is that we are with the Three Mobile network and we did not get any phone signal until we are out on the main road (about 40 mins drive from the cabin) due to the mountains but I believe some other networks work fine there. Also, the sofa is very comfortable and pulls out as a sofa bed, very welcome in the evening when you need to rest your tired legs from a day of walking. Overall, I could not fault the hospitality, location or cabin, highly recommended.”
