Log cabin | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Just an hour and half's drive from Glasgow airport, Stravaigin Lodge is a 6-person self-catering log cabin sat in a tranquil cluster of 18 privately-owned lodges in the heart of Cowal, Argyll. Situated beside the beautiful Puck's Glen gorge and a few minutes walk away from Benmore Botanical Gardens it provides a comfortable, relaxed base for exploring the surrounding mountains, rivers, glens and lochs.
The lodge is a perfect starting point for pursuiing any number of outdoor activities: hill-walking, cycling and mountain biking, fishing, sailing, spotting wildlife or visiting any of the numerous gardens which Argyll is so well known for due to the high rainfall and mild winters, allowing some unusual species to grow here.
One of the most frequently visited of these is Benmore Gardens just a mile up the road and which can be reached in three minutes by car or on foot along an old disused section of the A815 that runs along behind the Lodges. Or if you fancy a 20-minute drive to the Isle of Bute, which we most highly recommend, then a definite must-do is a visit to Mount Stuart House and Gardens.
If climbing hills is your thing then you are just 30 minutes away from the nearest Munro (Beinn Ime) and the rest of the “Arrochar Alps”. Further north there are the Cruachan Hills surrounded on both sides by Loch Awe and Loch Etive
Of course, there is also the option of doing very little indeed and getting the chance to relax in the lodge itself which has been praised for its comfort and cleanliness.
We have two double rooms (one with television) and a twin room, our lounge is fitted with a hi-fi with iPod dock, flatscreen television and DVD player and comes stocked with a variety of board games, DVDs, CDs and books.

Richard, thanks so much for the positive review......really appreciated. Electricity indeed expensive at winter time, unfortunately. We're getting a new bathroom in February so if you do come back again another time that will be in place and of course you'd be most welcome to come back.

Thanks for the positive review. Along with a sprucing up of our bathroom in late winter/early Spring, we intend to get a phone line connected (and of course internet with it) within the next 6 months. Glad you had a good stay though, and as ever we would be happy to have you back. Best wishes, Gordon

"Fantastic location, lovely cabin"
A fantastic location, great to have so many amazing walks nearby especially for the dog, barely heard the road nearby. The cabin was well appointed and had everything we needed and very comfortable. Only negative was the cistern was a bit small for 5adults and no internet.
Glad you had a good time Vanessa. We thought about internet at one point but then decided that part of the enjoyment of the place is the fact it's fairly cut-off from the (hectic) modern world. By cistern I guess you mean the boiler or water supply? Just after you stayed there Catherine and I and two of our friends stayed there and noticed the shower cutting out halfway through someone's shower. I got a plumber in and he discovered there was a problem with the shower's circuitry which kept tripping the shower off. So we've had a completely new shower installed which now works perfectly. If you did mean cistern, I think the fact we're on a chemical septic tank system means the cistern is sometimes slow to fill up. Sorry if this was a problem. Hope all's good with you anyway....and come back soon. Gordon & Catherine
