Well-appointed wooden lodges in a spectacular woodland location on the shores of Loch Awe. 

Log Cabin Scotland

Dalavich Argyll & Bute PA35 1HN 07706122034

We say

Beautifully located on the edge of Loch Awe, in the wilds of western Scotland, these log cabins offer a fabulous chance to get away from pretty much everything if that's what you're keen to do. Their location in the heart of the Inverliever forest (indeed the tiny village of Dalavich is itself a Forestry Commission creation) is perfect for both waterside and woodland holidays: each lodge enjoys fishing rights on the loch (Scotland's longest and renowned for its trout fishing), and where the water ends, the forest begins, with all manner of scenic walks and cycle routes and any amount of wildlife to spot along the way. from red squirrel and deer in the woods to osprey and otters on the loch. As for the lodges, there are three in all, each with its own secluded space (at least a quarter-of-an-acre) so that you would hardly know the others were there. They vary in size, sleeping from 4 to 6 people, and you can choose between a woodland or waterside location, but all come complete with open-plan living area with kitchen, 2–3 bedrooms, family bathroom, wood-burning stove, hot tub and large verandah, a TV and DVD player and free wifi – plus they are all pet-friendly, so you can bring the family hound along as well. Fern Lodge is deep in the woods by a babbling brook but still only 150m from the loch; the other two – Crannog Lodge and Lochside Lodge – both overlook the water. They're all fully insulated, double-glazed and warm and cosy at any time of year, but obviously sitting in the hot tub enjoying a glass of wine while looking out over the loch on a summer's evening is pretty hard to beat!
