    “Not enough seating, listed for six people as long as they don't want to all sit down together unless they sit on the floor.”

    Thanks for your feedback. We do have three double bedrooms, but agree our lounge is small for 6 adults. We think Tower Lodge is ideal for up to four adults and two children as our 'kids' bunkbed room also has a sofa and TV/DVD which gives them their own space. We have four comfy chairs in the lounge, plus the option of the dining chairs and two fold our chairs if needed. We are just finishing re-painting the cottage, installing new heating, and a new cooker and hob so we hope it will be a great place for a break for families or adults during 2020. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Tower Lodge is a superb detached cottage, located in the pretty village of Lochawe, situated just above the loch of the same name.

Kick off your boots and coats, leave them in the porch area by the front door and walk through to the open-plan living space.

The cosy lounge has comfortable seating for four adults to curl up of an evening while watching your favourite shows, with the delightful woodburning stove to keep you warm during those chilly winter months.

For the children, there is room to join the adults in the living room but the large downstairs bunk bedroom has a couch, TV, and DVD player to keep them entertained in their own space.

The dining area comfortably seats four adults and makes for a wonderful social space to enjoy your delicious home-cooked meals, prepared in the well-equipped kitchen, with all modern appliances on-hand.

The dining table can be folded out for up to six (there are two other chairs in other rooms; plus two fold out chairs in the cupboard).

Follow the stairs up to the first floor, where the remaining two bedrooms are located, consisting of a spacious twin room and a double bedroom which opens directly onto the balcony overlooking the Loch through the woodland.

The family bathroom offers a bath and electric shower, so you can decide how best to prepare for your day or freshen up after a day in the Scottish hills.

Outside has a well-kept garden with a sheltered west-facing stone area with a bench and chiminea, so you can sit out by the fire enjoying the country views through the woodland across to St Conan’s tower.

While you're in the area, take the time to visit the wonderful ruined structure of Kilchurn Castle, which dates back to the mid-15th century and offers stunning views across the loch, or the quirky St Conan’s Kirk built in medieval style in the late 1800s.

For those sporty types, visit the mountain of Ben Cruachan, which has opportunities for climbing and hiking.

Due to its rural location, you are ideally placed for walking and cycling opportunities, with scenic views all round.

Take advantage of Loch Awe, the third largest freshwater lake in Scotland, which is on your doorstep and enjoy some fishing or hire a boat.

The welcoming Cruachan Inn is a convenient 10 minutes’ walk away offering excellent food.

Travel a few miles to Dalmally Golf Club, which has a 9-hole course, suitable for amateurs and professionals alike.

Visit the towns of Oban and Inverary, which are both only 45 minutes away, or drive less than an hour to beautiful Glen Orchy or dramatic Glen Coe.

So much to do in this remote location, you won't want to miss it!

Tower Lodge is the perfect choice for a relaxing break to the countryside.

About the location

LOCHAWE

Taynuilt 9.2 miles; Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park 15.5 miles

The village of Lochawe lies on the fringes of the spectacular Loch Awe with its wild, dramatic hillside and beautiful scenic landscapes. In addition to the Scottish baronial-style St Conan’s Chapel built in 1883, it has a railway station and steamer pier bordered by picturesque countryside. Discover the marvellous Kilchurn Castle, an ancient ruined structure on a rocky peninsula at the northeastern end of Loch Awe and one of the most photographed castles in Scotland. To the west of the town lies Cruchan Hydro Power Station hidden deep within the mountain of Ben Cruachan, amongst some of Scotland's most beautiful scenery. Here you can take a guided tour and stop off in the cafe, a great place for a light bite to eat or a refreshing beverage, boasting spectacular views in a light, modern setting. There are many walking and cycling opportunities in the area, if you're feeling adventurous and particularly energetic, why not climb Ben Cruachan? It is a 1126m mountain that is the highest point in Argyll and Bute, offering simply breath-taking views from the top on a clear day. How could you miss an opportunity to explore this stunning and tranquil area of Scotland?
