Loch Awe is one of Scotland's most spectacular lochs. It is 25 miles long and runs from the village of Loch Awe to Ford near the west coast to 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, 17 miles to the south. There are many other scenic destinations easily reached from Lochawe and there is a small airport at Connel - six miles from Oban. A seaplane service runs from Glasgow to Oban and often lands in Lochawe.
There is spectacular hill walking, climbing and mountaineering in the area with skiing at Glencoe. The numerous lochs and rivers provide both salmon and trout fishing and the opportunity for boating and water sports. There is also a 9 hole gold course nearby.
Loch Awe has a small railway station within walking distance of the house on the Glasgow/Edinburgh to Oban line. It provides frequent commuting for the business and social traveller. A sleeper train also operates from Fort William to London.
