About the local area

You look out onto the Ben Cruachan group of mountains, which has 7 peaks all over 3,000 feet, great for Munro climbing enthusiasts but also providing stunning scenery to photograph. The lodge comes with fishing rights for the loch – 2 rods - famous for brown trout and pike, and it is only a short stroll down to the loch side where you can fish from the bank or launch a canoe or kayak. Alternatively you can hire a boat locally (2 miles) to explore the loch. It is a pleasant walk to the local hotel which has a pub and restaurant. This is an excellent base for touring around this area of Argyll. The marvellous countryside around you offers an abundance of wildlife to spot; red squirrels scuttling in the beech trees, deer are on the hillside and eagles soar high in the sky. The surrounding area has lots to offer all ages and interests. Cruachan is famous as the “Hollow Mountain” and is home to a hydro scheme built deep into the mountain with a reservoir high above – a unique attraction for all the family. This ideal central location is great for exploring down to historical Kilmartin Glen and the west coast Argyll, or north to Glen Coe. Dalmally and Inveraray have 9-hole golf courses and there’s an 18-hole course at Oban. Argyll is fantastic for walkers and climbers; you will find lots of great routes to explore. This area is steeped in history with the ruins of Kilchurn Castle and Conan’s Kirk nearby. Inveraray is only a 20 minute drive away and has attractions including the Inveraray Castle and 19th century Jail.
