Loch Awe Camping Pods: Pods with great views of Loch Awe

General

  • Modern outdoor accommodation with spectacular loch and mountain views
  • A few minutes' walk from Dalavich; 50 minutes' drive from Oban
  • Firepit and fishing available on site; next to a bar and grill

Like the sound of pods with private decking by a loch? Then you'll no doubt be rather taken with Loch Awe Camping Pods, a modern, small-scale site on the peaceful banks of Loch Awe. You'll want to head to this secluded spot if wild fishing, mountain explores and lochside campfires are on your bucket list…

The accommodation here is stylish, spacious and self-contained: each unit contains comfortable sleeping quarters as well as a heater, kettle, microwave, fridge and outdoor seating area. They're also well insulated, so you're pretty sure to be warm and toasty here whatever the time of year. Oh, and this could be the deal-clincher – all the pods have direct access to the gorgeous loch shore.

Once you've settled down for a waterside stay, sorting practicalities is a doddle. Loch Awe Camping Pods guests have access to communal facilities including two individual toilets with coin-operated showers and a coin-operated laundry area that's open 24 hours a day. Guests wishing to fish must purchase a permit in advance (contact the site when booking for details).

Loch Awe Camping Pods is a few minutes' walk from Dalavich's shop and café and next to Lochview Bar and Grill (seasonal opening hours), where there's a playground for any kids you've brought along. Jaunts further afield can also be sorted with ease, whether you're heading for the Highlands, aiming for the islands via the ferry port of Oban (50 minutes' drive) or fancy a day at the beach.

    The place.
    The pod itself was clean and pleasant but what was really nice was the village, the loch, the local walks and swimming in the river.
    The community centre with a table tennis table was a great hit with our teenagers.

  • Liked: 

    The pods are placed next to the lake. It is a long narrow road to drive to the nearest shops but views are stunning. Highly recommended.
    Planning to go again as there is so many places to see and not enough time.

    Disliked: 

    Need to have a flashlight when you walk to the toilet at night. No lights around the pods. There are wooden, steep stairs from the pods up the car park, not very safe to walk.
    Poor drainage in the bathroom.

Directions


Dalavich is 14 miles from the turn off at Taynuilt which is a left turn just before you enter the village of Taynuilt. As you approach Dalavich from Taynuilt direction you will cross River Avich on a right hand bend over the bridge and shortly after, you'll see a sign for Dalavich on the left hand side of the road.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Walks, watersports and hikes around Loch Awe are all immediately accessible here, and if you're feeling adventurous you could even paddle over to the island of Innis Chonnel for another view of the area. Loch Avich, roughly 10 minutes’ drive away, is also close by and has more opportunities for rambling and admiring the ruins of long-gone medieval castles and crannogs.

For more history, head to Dunadd Fort (35 minutes), an Iron Age hillfort believed to have been the centre of the ancient kingdom of Dal Riata, which emerged in this part of Argyll after the Romans abandoned their hopes of conquering Scotland. If you like your castles to be a bit more intact, you should try Kilchurn Castle (45 minutes) or Dunstaffnage Castle and its equally impressive chapel (50 minutes).

The planned town of Inveraray (an hour and 10 minutes) should also be on your itinerary, whether you're intrigued by its past as a clan seat, its gorgeous castle gardens, the historic jailhouse and neoclassical buildings or are on the lookout for a starting point for exploring the coastal shores of Loch Fyne.

Must see
