Loch Awe Cabins 
Holiday Lodges 

These two step down cabins  were designed to sit on the steep slope behind the newly refurbished Ben Cruachan Inn., Each  takes advantage of the   stunning views over Loch Awe and the surrounding hills. 


The twin buildings  are designed to maximise the daylight and views of the loch , with large picture windows . Each one is accessed from the  driveway  through its own  own small ,private courtyard.


The accommodation is on two levels  with the  entrance on  the upper floor  where the galley kitchen   and shower room are situated . The lower level has a double bedroom . The split level allows the view to be  shared on both levels   .

The space is lined in spruce panels , with a bamboo floor on the upper level and cosy natural sisal flooring on the lower bedroom . 


Sliding doors conceal  the  shower room which is  lined in  Richlite's Black Diamond  panels, made from recycled post consumer paper . Black  fittings create a  dramatic but relaxing  space.   A small wood burner sits centrally on the upper level with a table for two adjacent.  

Venetian blinds cover the large windows to allow levels of shade and privacy.   


Clad in Siberian larch,  the cabins and their  private  courtyards  allow  guests to relax in peace and quiet and enjoy the views over the loch and the surrounding hills     

The  building is super insulated  for year round use, with  double glazing and thick sheep wool to all walls, roof and floor.
