Loch Awe, Scotland

Rating: 
4.6 / 5.0
 
The thin finger of water known as Loch Awe is a great place to take adventurous children. Search for cairns at Cladich, Port Sonachan and Ardchonnel. Marvel at crannogs; the roundhouses found round the lake are age-old communal dwellings. Learn about hydroelectric power at Cruachan Power Station. Imagine life in a fortified castle, Kilchurn, Fraoch Eilean, Innisconnel and Fincharn. Tell tales of Scottish clans. Hike forested green hills. Kayak, row and fish.

Deserves more than an afternoon

We spent an afternoon on the shores of Loch Awe en route from Oban to Inveraray and it was barely enough time to get a feel for the area. If we were to do it over again we would spend at least one night. We would leave time to walk and time to explore. Loch Awe is beautiful country. It's a destination in its own right.
