We are a young couple living in a lovely home by the side of Loch Awe. We have a great, fair sized ground floor bedroom, with a comfortable double bed, fantastic view of the garden. During your stay you will have access to a shared bathroom.
A vegetarian breakfast is included in the price and a vegetarian evening meal can be provided if it is required for an additional £5 per person. We have 2 lovely cats that are no trouble at all!
You can see Loch Awe from the garden. The Loch, sometimes called “the Jewel of Argyll”, is the centrepiece of the stunning countryside stretching from the North Argyll Glens, on the edge of Rannoch Moor, to the ancient Kingdom of Dalriada in the south.
The area is fantastic if you are interested in outdoor pursuits. There is so much you can do within walking distance of the house - hill walking, climbing and cycling and fishing.
Our position is isolated, so it would be best if you have a hire car or your own car, however if you are living or travelling lightly we are 15 miles from Dalmally station and 17 miles from Lochgilphead bus stop. If you need a lift we can provide one for a small charge as unfortunately no public transport passes our door.
We look forward to hearing from you and will do our best to get back to any enquires within 24 hours.

Nous espérons vous revoir très vite :) Nathalie et Florent
We spent two nights in september 2013 at Demelza and Leon's house. We arrived in a little paradise, welcomed by two wonderful people. Such an amazing meeting like we want more often in travel. we recommand to everybody this place nice and quiet in the nature. Thank you again Demelza and Leon. We hope to see you soon. Nathalie and Florent
I had an amazing amount of fun during my two-week stay above Loch Awe with Leon, while Demelza worked on a job in southern England. Half the nights Leon cooked dinner, a fine cook. In the morning I ate breakfast while gazing out over the loch. The last night Demelza returned and hosted a barbecue.
Leon has an engaging personality, quick to take a new idea and explore ramifications. Demelza too is interested in many subjects, and is a professional brand manager for food manufacturers.
This region has the heaviest concentration of cairns, hill forts, cup-and-ring stones, menhirs, standing stones, and other Bronze Age mementos of anywhere in Scotland, plus the usual assortment of castles, so every day was a trip to another fabulous site. The nearest town, Kilmartin, has a first-class museum and cafe, and a cemetery that goes back to 700 AD.
My room was warm and comfy, good internet, everything needed in a kitchen, good shower. I got a lot of writing done. No TV.
Loch Awe is noted for its brown trout, which can reach 30 pounds. The nearest pub on the loch serves dinner, and decorates the walls with these monstrous stuffed trout.
The prevailing wind carries moisture from the Gulf Stream to the mountains, which condenses out as warm rain or a kind of heavy dew called sirimiri in Bilbao, followed by a break. I carried a raincoat, never needed an umbrella. The locals just ignore it.
Trees - think of the Pacific Northwest, a British Columbian rain forest, mostly Scots pine but plenty of hardwoods, that blanket the mountains. Weeds and flowers grow six feet high along the sides of the road, block the view if not trimmed.
Not too many people. "I have the smallest farm in the area," a farmer told me, "only 4000 acres."
One day I checked out a tour boat operation that looks for seals and eagles, but they were full, and I never went back. About an hour away are several different ferries to nearby islands, including Oban, where cruise ships dock,
Very nice, funny and welcoming couple, we had a great stay and we really feel like home! Very friendly. The breakfast was very good and they even provide fresh food from the garden. The location is magic near the loch Awe and very quiet. The diner around the fire in the garden was fantastic.
Nous avons été formidablement bien accueillis par Leon. La chambre est très confortable, la maison, décorée avec goût, est entourée d'un magnifique jardin avec vue sur le Loch Awe. L'ambiance est particulièrement "cosy" et les fraises cultivées par Leon sont délicieuses !
Nous vous recommandons vivement cette adresse pour une pause bucolique.
5 stars! And if I could give a sixth, I would. Wonderful place and wonderful hosts, and a gorgeous place in the world to be, so this gets a massive thumbs up from me.
Leona and Demelza are perfect partners who kept us comfortable during our stay. Leon took us for a walk to the hillside water falls and Demelza made us puddings and drinks. We had an awesome campfire dinner ;) This place is located near LochGilphead with lake facing rooms in a cosy set up. I strongly recommend this place to anyone who needs a break from city life and am sure you will be rejuvenated!
We had a very quick stay but it was fantastic. A lovely place. Nice and warm on a wet rainy night. Demelza was away but her partner was a great host. And breakfast in the morning was fabulous. Wish we coul dhave stayed some more time there than just the one night.
We had a wonderful weekend. Demelza and Leon were great hosts.
Beautiful location/house. And a perfect base to explore the highlands from. Definitely be using this pad again.
