Loch Awe Self Catering Boathouse is located at Loch Awe, the longest freshwater loch in Scotland.

Loch Awe runs south west from the A85 about 20 miles east of Oban and is one of the most beautiful and most photographed of the Scottish lochs, having the iconic ruin of Kilchurn Castle at its northern end. About a quarter of the way down its peaceful western shore and right on the water, is Loch Awe Self Catering Boathouse.

The boathouse stands in private south facing grounds reached by a mile of meandering private track (some potholes and not suitable for low suspension vehicles) which will bring you to this haven of peace and tranquillity. A hunting lodge stood on this site for several centuries until 1954. The current property is an architect-designed, expertly refurbished and most comfortable house, quite alone in its stunning lochside situation.

Loch Awe Boathouse is surrounded by lawned gardens and mature wooded areas and is sheltered by a variety of magnificent trees. There is parking alongside the house, which also has its own private pier, slipway and fishing rights. Canadian Canoe, Kayak and Paddle Board are available for use included in the rental subject to signing the electronic disclaimer. As you would expect in such a location there is an abundance of wildlife here, including deer, pine marten, red squirrels and otters and an even greater variety of birds, including barn owls and osprey.

Downstairs is bright, spacious and open plan, with a modern kitchen, dining and seating areas and wood-burning stove, together with a door to a decked seating area above the water. The master bedroom, with en suite facilities, is also on this level, along with a utility room, a further bathroom and drying room. Upstairs are a further double bedroom and cosy lounge, with a glass wall to provide panoramic views over the water. These both have coombed ceilings. Furniture and fittings are of the highest quality.
