Description

This truly excellent Scandinavian style lodge, set 30 metres above the River Awe and just half a mile from the Bridge of Awe, has unspoilt views of the river and surrounding mountain scenery. Civil marriages may take place within the grounds as the owners have a licence, and marquee hire can also be arranged on request. Graded as ‘5 star’ accommodation by S.T.B, it offers a very high standard of accommodation and is only 14 miles from the bustling harbour town of Oban, the ‘Gateway to the Isles’, and just 2 miles from the thriving small village of Taynuilt. It is surrounded by wildlife, golden eagles and buzzards which are often seen, or more adventurous visitors can spend a day on the seas dolphin-spotting. Catch a ferry from Oban to the Isle of Mull, one of the Inner Hebrides, where visits to Torosay Castle or the colourful town of Tobermory are possible. Sail to the beautiful island of Iona and visit the restored Iona Abbey, originally a medieval Benedictine foundation and one of the most sacred historical sites in Scotland. Visit Inveraray Jail, an award-winning living jail and courthouse where men, women and children were jailed from as early as the 1820s. Glencoe and Fort William, known as the ‘Outdoor capital of the UK’, are within easy reach and promise a memorable day out. Close by there is plenty to see and do for all ages from exploring the historic Bonawe Ironworks, venturing inside the hollow mountain at Cruachan, watching the seals at the Sea Life Centre, playing a round of golf, visiting one of the many beautiful castles and gardens. Outdoor enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with fishing, canoeing, sailing, walking, climbing, bird-watching, cycling along some of the many forest tracks or lazing on the beach just a handful of the activities on offer. This is truly a place where guests will be spoilt for choice. Shops 500 yards.

About the local area

As you travel through Argyll, highland Scotland merges with the Scottish lowlands. In the north of the region is the bustling fishing port of Oban. Surrounded by the sweeping mountains of Lorn this is the ideal base from which to tour the Highlands to the north.

The Isle of Mull is only a short ferry trip away. Mull's capital, Tobermory, is instantly recognised by its famous brightly painted buildings. The island has a fascinating history being once home to the Chief of the Clan MacLean and site of the clan's ancient Duart Castle which has spectacular views from its battlements.

South along the coast are the unspoilt glens and bays of Mid-Argyll and Kintyre and the islands of Islay and Jura which are easily reached by ferry. Visit the whitwashed houses of Inveraray and the turreted Inveraray Castle, home to the Dukes of Argyll. Campbelltown in Kintyre was the scene of Viking repulsions at Saddell Abbey and has some lovely beaches nearby.

The captivating Isle of Bute lies at the heart of the Firth of Clyde, a place of tranquil relaxation with sheltered coves and sandy bays. Ideal for leisurely hiking and easy-going cycling on quiet back roads. Maybe take in the grandeur of Rothesay Castle or Mount Stuart - the House and gardens of the Marquess of Bute.
