Gardens
Galvanised steel gate to gravel yard turning and vehicle hard standing apron.

A gravel terrace is at the front and breaks to a steeper section of gardens to grass with trees and rhododendrons at the edges. About 0.378 acres in all.

Situation
Airidh Cruachan has a fine elevated position on woodland grounds above Loch Awe on its northern side and just off the A85. From its raised vantage point there are views glimpsing through the trees over the loch to the mountains and glens beyond.

The house has a prime setting at the end of a single track access road in its own gardens and grounds which are mainly to grass and which feature semi ancient native woodlands and rhodendrons at the fringes.

Loch Awe is one of Scotland’s most spectacular lochs. It is 25 miles long and runs from the village of Lochawe to Ford near the west coast to the south. At its northern end is Kilchurn Castle, a dramatic ruin, and one of Scotland’s most famous and most photographed castles. There are a number of islands on the loch including Innishail, which is the burial island of the Dukes of Argyll. Inveraray Castle, the seat of the Dukes of Argyll, is at the head of Loch Fyne, 17 miles to the south.

There is spectacular hill walking, climbing and mountaineering in the area with skiing at Glencoe. The numerous lochs and rivers of mid Argyll provide both salmon fishing and trout fishing and the opportunity for boating and water sports. There is a variety of fresh water fish in the loch and in 2002 a British record 31lb 12oz wild brown trout was caught. Some of the local estates have low ground and rough shoots and it is possible by permission to arrange stalking.

The west of Scotland is well known among the yachting fraternity for its beautiful sailing scenery. There are marina and chandlery services at Oban, Croabh Haven and Ardfern.

As with most parts of Scotland, one is never too far from a golf course and Airidh Cruachan is no exception. The nearest courses are at Dalmally and Taynuilt.

Lochawe has a small railway station, and bus stop, within walking distance of the house on the Glasgow to Oban line. The village has a post office/general store, the recently totally refurbished destination eatery, Ben Cruachan Inn, village hall, and a beautiful church. Dalmally is slightly larger and has a primary school, doctor’s surgery, pharmacy and village store. Oban has a full range of shops and supermarkets, secondary schooling and professional services. Oban is the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry terminal to the Western Isles.
