We stayed in two cabins, the Onida and Bluebell cabins for two nights. The cabins were well equipped, although missing some bedding which was promptly rectified upon request to the house keeper. The Onida cabin had more than enough room for us all to congregate (10 of us in total). Both cabins were as clean as we were expecting (I'd...

Onida cabin was wonderful. Full of charm and all your basic needs covered. Set in a fantastic location beside Loch Awe. Kids and dogs loved the forest. Paddelling and fishing in the loch. Day trips to Oban and to Mull by ferry. It was good not to have 3 or 4g and really get away from it all. We were...

We rented an Onida cabin over Hogmanay and it was great. I believe our cabin number was 21a and from the front of the cabin and one you look out over the loch. The cabin has a large balcony which would be great in summer, looking out over a huge field (and the loch to your left). Everything was well...

About the neighbourhood
This unique location was created by the forestry commission as a place of tranquillity, amid outstanding scenery. In addition to the peace and quiet of the log cabin locations the surrounding area provides an amazing natural playground with forests, burns, rivers, castles, mountains and lochs to explore and enjoy. The area has a proliferation of walks, cycle routes and local attractions, has an abundance of wildlife and is a world renowned destination for anglers.

Many visitors are captivated by the area, as we were, and return time and again to the shores of Loch Awe. We hope that you too will visit our highland hideaway and enjoy our log cabins and the natural wonders of this unspoiled part of Scotland.
