The cabin is lovely. The owners are very helpful. The location is remote and it’s a great place to get away from it all. The log burner is fab and keeps the cabin super cosy. The kitchen has piles of equipment and the three bunk...More

Great place with lovely lake. No words to describe the beauty and convenient location. Cats dazed with view from windows, with so many birds :). Perfect place to stay and visit Scotland. Even Ben Nevis smiles not far from there.

About the neighbourhood
Ben Lui Log Cabin is located on the shores of the stunning and tranquil Loch Awe. It is one of the largest freshwater lochs in Scotland with an approximate length of twenty five miles. It is a mecca for fishermen from far and near... and to date holds the British Isles record for the largest brown trout weighing in at just under 32lbs/14.5Kg! Salmon, sea trout, pike, perch and char are also caught on a regular basis, depending on the season.

Loch Awe is beautiful, far away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and as of now, still under-developed with no noisy watersports to shatter the peace. It has many islands worth visiting, including Innis Chonnel Castle, the first stronghold of the Campbells. The remains of Crannogs; pre historic island hut settlements, can still be seen when t...
