Kilchurn Log Cabin
About the home
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 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!
The Loch Awe area
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.
