Kilchurn Log Cabin
Log cabin | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Kilchurn is a delightful log cabin situated on the western shore of Loch Awe with a truly fantastic view over the water.
The cabin is situated in the Loch Aweside Forest Cabin Park with wide-open spaces between cabins, guaranteeing peace and quiet even during busy periods. The park is within the Inverliever Forest which offers wonderful country walks in the immediate vicinity, as well as access to fishing, cycling, sailing and of course the rich wildlife. This unique cabin is perfect for a young family or for couples to enjoy a relaxing holiday in a unforgettable location.
Dalavich is central to the many and varied attractions in Argyll, such as The Avich Falls, Invarary Castle, Oban and its famous distillery.
It also offers a convenience store for amenities and basic groceries, and a social club/bar which serves alcohol and hot meals, but please bear in mind that Dalavich is relatively remote, and if you require a more extensive range of amenities, you must drive 45 minutes to Oban.
Pets welcome, no extra charge as long as they are good!

The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
Discover the magic of the west: sea-lochs and mossy, lush woodlands, long views to a horizon where the sun sinks behind the islands. This is a beguiling and romantic kind of place with a special heritage as the first Kingdom of the Scots.
The surrounding area is beautiful with plenty to do and see.
Go for walks around the picturesque area. There is plenty of things to do like horseriding, fishing, sailing, cycling etc. You will never be bored!
Dalavich is a beautiful village with breathtaking surroundings. It is set on the picturesque banks of Loch Awe which is right next to the forest.
The Burns night supper is a brilliant annual event on 5th November and they Hogmany parties are well known in the surrounding areas.
There is a church, small shop and cafe in the village with a part time post office. The social club is very lively with people planning events for the community well in advance.

If you like the centre parcs feel, but not the corporate big brother bit then you will like this. It has a rustic feel and is not at all polished, but that is it's charm. You can sit looking out… More
Thank you for your review, I appreciate it. Yes I am building a decking at the ground level with a staircase up to the balcony so guests may access the shore directly. The water level actually rises and falls as the loch is used for hydroelectricity, hence the slight marshiness. Sometimes the water comes up almost to the cabin! I'm glad you had a nice time.

"A Perfect Getaway"
6 of us headed up to this cabin at the start of February and we were a bit apprehensive about all fitting in. It wasnt a problem - the cabin had ample space for 6 of us! The wood burner kept the pla… More
Delighted you enjoyed your week at the cabin! I always describe the space as 'pleasantly spacious, reassuringly small'. Yes, the road leading to Dalavich is long and twisty but that adds to the area's secludedness, and it's probably why you didn't see many other people wandering about. Thanks for your review and I hope to hear from you again! Reuben
