Dalmally is about 3 miles to the east of Loch Awe which is one of Scotland's most spectacular lochs. It is 25 miles long and runs from the village of Lochawe to Ford at the south. Kilchurn Castle is a dramatic ruin, and one of Scotland's most famous and most photographed castles. There are a number of islands in the loch including Innishail, which is the burial island of the Dukes of Argyll. Inveraray Castle, the seat of the Dukes of Argyll, is at the head of Loch Fyne, 16 miles to the south.

Dalmally has a main line rail station which connects Oban and Glasgow.
There is spectacular hill walking, climbing and mountaineering in the area, with skiing at Glencoe. The numerous lochs and rivers provide both salmon fishing and trout fishing and the opportunity for boating and water sports. River Orchy is probably the best white water rafting river in Scotland. Some of the local estates run commercial shoots as well as allowing stalking by prior arrangement. The whole of the surrounding area with its rugged mountains and glens is a photographers dream.
