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.

Well behaved pets welcome! (single animal FREE, two animals £15)

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!

Loch Awe

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 don't fancy cooking dinner, walk to for some great food and drink in a pub atmosphere.

My husband, son, dog and I enjoyed a fabulous short stay at Kilchurn in November. If you are looking for a 'get away from it all' this is the place to stay. The cabin is situated overlooking the loch which is stunning. Although an older fashioned cabin than what we have been to before it was full of warmth and character and extremely comfortable. Although it rained most of the time we managed to take in a walk in and around McKenzie grove where you will find a beautiful waterfall. My teenage son loved it and can't wait to return. As did my husband who donned his wet suit and braved the water along with my dog sam (Very Brave). I would highly recommend this to couples and families. We stayed 2 nights but would definately recommend a minimum of 3. We travelled late afternoon and found the road to Dalvaich tricky in the dark as it is particularly windy therefore try to travel this road in daylight for safety and to really appreciate the scenery.

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to write us a review and I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. The cabin isn't brand new, but it certainly adds to its rural charm, and has the best location out of all of them :) Having said that, I'm continuing to make improvements to make cabin-life even more comfortable. I hope you come back soon. Reuben.

"So good we booked again the following weekend!"

Highly recommend this cabin. We were fortunate enough to be able to book at short notice for a nights stay. Reuben was very quick to reply to emails answering any query I had and gave us full directions on getting there. We collected the keys from a very friendly lady called Irene, who also assured us that we could contact her any time if we had a problem (we didn't). The cabin itself was clean and warm and was an ideal size for us and our mountain of fishing gear. There is a log fire in the cabin that somehow turned my other half into Bear Grylls whenever he went near it, plenty of clean bedding, tea towels and everything you need for cooking. There is two bedrooms in the cabin, one with a double bed and one with bunkbeds. We slept on the pull-out couch in the living area so we could catch the sunset. The surrounding area is stunning and the locals are very friendly. As the title states, as soon as it was time to go I called Reuben and booked again for a full weekend. The only problem we had was the dreaded midge, one of the neighbours very kindly lent us midge jackets and we bought ourselves some for returning. Overall we had a great experience and even caught a couple of fish (well he did). Reuben, we will be back soon!

Thanks! I'm glad the cabin was up to your standards. I'm continuously making improvements, and I hope, like many other guests have done, you enjoy it a second (third!) time round soon. Cheers, Reuben.
