About the neighbourhood
The village of Lochawe lies at the end of Loch Awe approximately 2 miles west of Dalmally. It gives good access to the islands of Mull and Iona and is a handy stepping off point on the road to Glencoe and Fort William.

In addition to the Scottish baronian-style St Conan’s Chapel built in 1883, it has a railway station and steamer pier. To the west of the town lies Cruachan Hydro Power Station - a feat of post world war 2 engineering.

Loch Awe iyself is 25 miles long and up to 1 mile wide and has depths of more than 300ft in places. Set in spectacular scenery the loch attracts many visiting anglers throughout the year for both the wild trout and coarse fishing, and in recent years has become something of a mecca for anglers pursuing the loch's famous large predatory ferox trout a...
