These attractive holiday properties are set amid 20 acres of mature woodland close to beautiful Loch Awe - 26 miles long and Britain&rsquo;s longest freshwater loch.

A visitors&rsquo; reception/library area provides a wealth of information on the local history, archaeology, wildlife, gardens, forest and hillside walks, as well as the year-round activities available around Argyll and the West Highlands.The Ardbrecknish Room has a welcoming open fire, small dance floor, pool table, darts and Scottish Carpet Bowls. The adjoining cosy traditional bar with its woodburner provides a perfect way to end the day; perhaps sampling one or two of the many malt whiskies.At the shore, just 10 minutes&rsquo; walk, motor boats, rowing boats and canoes can be hired to explore the enchanting islands and ruined castles of the loch, or maybe fishing the loch for salmon, char, monster pike and brown trout. A British record brown trout of 31lbs 10oz was caught in March 2002. Tuition and/or a fishing guide is available by arrangement. The surrounding area offers a wealth of interest and fantastic scenery.
