From the owner

Ben Lui is a renovated and lovingly cared for log cabin on the former Forestry Commision land at Dalavich on the shores of the beautiful and tranquil Loch Awe. It is set centrally in approx 1/4 acre of mixed grassland and copse,which is viewed from the new balcony and offers a peaceful and relaxing retreat in idyllic surroundings.

Loch Awe is one of Scotland’s largest and most picturesque freshwater lochs with its wooded shores and scattered small islands and is a popular destination for hill walkers and anglers (boat hire available). Dalavich is host to a well stocked General Store which includes a Post Office and a café and there is also a community run Restaurant and Bar. Further afield, tourist attractions include Inverary Castle and Jail, Innis Channel Castle, the Oakwood Trail and Oban with its many activities, shops and distilleries.

Further details

A non-refundable deposit of £100 is required on booking with the balance being due no later than 4 weeks before the holiday commences. Full payment is required at the time of booking for short breaks and bookings within 4 weeks of the holiday.

Logs cost £15 for 1-2 nights and £25 for 3 nights upwards.

The letting week runs from 4:00pm Saturday to 10:00am the following Saturday, except for short breaks.

Well behaved dogs are permitted to stay with you for a charge of £10 per dog, per week with no more than two dogs allowed.

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.
