Further details indoors

Interior comprises open plan living/dining room with fully fitted kitchen and logburning stove. The double bedroom and triple bunk room can accommodate 5 people with an extra person sleeping on the overhead bunk in the living room if required. It is perfect for couples, families or a small group of friends.

Further details outdoors

Loch Awe itself is beautiful, far away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and as of now, still under-developed with no noisy watersports to shatter the peace. It has many islands worth visiting, including Innis Chonnel Castle, the first stronghold of the Campbells. The remains of Crannogs; pre historic island hut settlements, can still be seen when the loch is low, at different points along the lochside. The fishing is legendary with monster trout up to 30lb (~14Kg), salmon, sea trout, pike, perch, char etc, depending on the season.

There are many beautiful forest walks in the area, including The Oakwood Trail, The Avich Falls Trail and Duncan's Walk, all of which meander through ancient oak and pine forests. Pine marten, fox, wild cats red deer, roe deer, otter and red squirrels can often be seen. There are also regular sightings of eagles and ospreys. Apart from the signed trails, there are up to 100 miles of forest tracks and roads in the area, suitable for the serious walker or mountain biker.

A social club is also situated at the end of the cabin site which is owned by the village but guests from the cabins are warmly welcomed. The restaurant, bar and kitchens have had a complete refurbishment. The bar is open 7 nights a week (April to October) and 4 nights a week (November to March). The restaurant is open for evening meals on Thurday to Sunday and is called The Lochview Grill. A coin-operated laundrette is also available on site.

The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region

Argyll and Bute occupies an enviable position on the doorstep of the Scottish Highlands with easy access to the beautiful Western Isles from Oban.

There has never been a better time to visit Scotland's Islands, to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and unspoilt beaches, to get close to dramatic wildlife, learn about the heritage, participate in a great range of activities, and enjoy the music, food and drink. Oban is justifiably known as the Gateway to the Isles. The town's south pier is the embarkation point for car ferries to Mull, Coll, Tiree, Barra, South Uist, Colonsay, Lismore and Islay. From these islands you can travel further afield to Iona, Staffa and to many of the smaller less well known isles.

Wild, rugged and remote, the Scottish Highlands are among Europe's last great areas of untamed wilderness. With a charm and grandeur of their own, the Highlands are a place where nature rules supreme. Nearby Munros include Ben Cruachan, Ben Lui and of course Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK at 1344m.

Loch Awe

Ben Lui Log Cabin is located on the shores of the stunning and tranquil Loch Awe. It is one of the largest freshwater lochs in Scotland with an approximate length of twenty five miles. It is a mecca for fishermen from far and near... and to date holds the British Isles record for the largest brown trout weighing in at just under 32lbs/14.5Kg! Salmon, sea trout, pike, perch and char are also caught on a regular basis, depending on the season.

The cabins are approximately five minutes walk from the village of Dalavich which has a shop, cafe and post office where you can enjoy a morning coffee, light lunch and stock up with groceries. Take-away meals are also available from the cafe. Mountain bikes are available for hire, by the day or week.
