About the location

DALMALLY

Tyndrum 11 miles; Oban 27 miles.

The village of Dalmally, on the road between Tyndrum and Oban in Argyll and Bute, probably began life as a settlement to provide for the nearby Kilchurn Castle, established in the mid 15th century by the 1st Lord of Glenorchy, Sir Colin Campbell. Through many generations, the Campbells vied with the earls of Argyll for dominance in this region and the castle was only abandoned in the 18th century. The modern village of Dalmally has a shop, Post Office and a hotel as well as Glenorchy parish church, with its octagonal design. There's also a nine hole parkland golf course, set just behind the village and Loch Awe, offering a very scenic and peaceful place to practice your swing. The renowned Gaelic poet Duncan Ben MacIntyre was born in the area, and a walk up forested hills brings you to his monument, as well as spectacular views of Loch Awe and the surrounding mountains. Its location makes the village an ideal base for touring the spectacular scenery nearby. Visit Loch Awe and its ruined castle, and nearby Ben Cruachan is not only a fabulous walk but also houses the Cruachan power station, where visitors can tour the hollowed-out mountain. Oban is a short drive away with ferries to the Western Isles, or take a drive through awe-inspiring Glen Coe. Dalmally is surrounded by sublime scenery, making it a wonderful base for your next Scottish getaway.
