Keepers Cottage is located adjacent to the B840 in the heart of the hamlet of Cladich on the east shores of Loch Awe some 10 miles north of Inveraray, 7 miles southwest of Dalmally and 28 miles east of Oban. The property bounds the banks of the River Cladich which in turn joins the Archan River before passing into Loch Awe. Keepers Cottage enjoys the best of both worlds enjoying peaceful, rural surroundings with lovely countryside views and yet being close enough to nearby villages and towns with more facilities and amenities.
Cladich is a peaceful hamlet close to Loch Awe with the village having a long history of farming and rural industry. The Cladich fold of Highland cattle continues this tradition on land that has been occupied and farmed for hundreds, probably thousands of years.
Loch Awe is one of Scotland's most beautiful lochs. It is approximately 23 miles long and is home to a variety of freshwater fish including salmon, brown trout, rainbow trout, pike and perch. In addition, the loch holds the British record for the largest rod-caught wild brown trout.
There is an active community along the lochside. The area welcomes visitors and new residents into the community and encourages them to participate in the many local activities. There is a hotel, boat hire at nearby Ardbrecknish, self catering complexes and other holiday accommodation as well as permanent homes, two churches and a well used village hall. The Oban/Glasgow bus service stop is within easy walking distance of Cladich.
The village of Dalmally is approximately 7 miles away and supports a general store, its own doctor, pharmacy, police station and fire station. It also has an excellent primary school which is served by a daily bus service. There is a scenic 9-hole golf course and a hotel popular with both visitors and locals alike. Dalmally railway station offers convenient links to Oban and Glasgow and beyond.
