The space
Kilchurn is a delightful log cabin situated on the western shore of Loch Awe with a truly magnificent view. The cabin is fully self-catering, no host is present other than the nearby caretaker and you have the place to yourselves.

Recently modernised in a fantastic loch-side location,
the interior comprises an open-plan living room/kitchen area offering a magnificent view of the loch with a covered balcony, two bedrooms and a shower room/toilet, accommodating 4 guests.

The cabin is situated in the Dalavich Chalet Park with wide-open spaces between cabins, guaranteeing peace and quiet even during busy periods. The park is within the Inverliever Forest which offers wonderful country walks in the immediate vicinity, as well as access to fishing, cycling, sailing and of course the rich wildlife. This unique cabin is perfect for a young family or for couples to enjoy a relaxing holiday in a unforgettable location.

Dalavich is central to the many and varied attractions in Argyll, such as The Avich Falls, Invarary Castle, Oban and its famous distillery.

It also offers a convenience store for amenities and basic groceries, and a social club/bar which serves alcohol and hot meals, but please bear in mind that it is relatively remote, and if you require a more extensive range of amenities, you must drive 45 minutes to Oban.

A car is highly recommended to stay here, but there are regular buses which run from Glasgow to Oban, and Oban to Dalavich.

Where you’ll be

Dalavich, Scotland, United Kingdom

Dalavich (Scottish Gaelic: Dail Abhaich) is a village in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. It lies on the western bank of Loch Awe and has a population of around 70. (It is located 30 miles from the main town and port of Oban, connected by the villages of Kilchreanan and Taynuilt)

"Dalavich" is Gaelic in origin and means "meadows/valley of the River Avich". The village was established by the Forestry Commission in 1952 to facilitate timber operations in the surrounding Inverliever forest.This was labour-intensive and horses were used to extract timber from the forest - it is possible to get a glimpse of this history by visiting the "old stables" which contain material from this epoch. Nowadays, a number of villagers still earn their living directly from forestry.

Inverliever forest was acquired by HM Officer of Woods in 1907 and was one of the original "State Forests". In September 1919, the Forestry Act came into force, setting up the Forestry Commission and giving it responsibility for woods in England, Scotland and Wales. The basis of forestry policy in the 1920s was the need to rebuild and maintain a strategic timber reserve. As the surrounding area could not supply adequate labour, the forestry village at Dalavich was established. In 1971, Inverinan forest was added to Inverliever.

There are forest walks and cycle routes maintained by the Forestry Commission nearby, and houses or cabins are available for tourists. Popular forest walks include the Dalavich Oakwood Trail (where red squirrel, pine marten, woodpeckers and many other woodland inhabitants may be seen), and the Avich Falls; there are many more nature trails, e.g. to Otter Point.

There is a church, a small shop and cafe with a part-time Post Office. There is also a social club as part of the community centre, the village also hosted a primary school but this was closed in 1997 due to an insufficient number of pupils. In 1997 there was only 1 pupil.

There is boat hire and fishing permits can be bought locally. Some of the largest trout caught in Europe have come from Loch Awe.

Hi, I own two lovely log cabins located on the western banks of Loch Awe in Argyll, Scotland. It is a secluded and peaceful place, perfect for a getaway from the daily grind. My other job is in music and photography; I work mainly from home. You'll have the entire place and the surrounding area to yourself, that's the best way to experience it! The cabin is my second home. I spend time there to work on music, read books and reacquaint myself with the ducks, buzzards and the owls :) I'll be helping you with any enquiries you may have.
