There is a bird book in each cottage and a nature diary for you to record sightlings of things you have seen maybe from your cottage or out walking. Hiring a boat on Loch Awe is a great way to be with nature.
Blarghour is a hill farm of 2,000 acres on which unrestricted walking may be enjoyed. Fishing on Loch Awe is by permit only and permits are available at the Farm. The surrounding countryside provides river fishing, climbing and hill-walking. Within easy reach during a days exploring are: Glencoe, Fort William and Ben Nevis, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, Dunoon and Loch Eck, Oban, Crinan and the Isles of Mull, Iona, Islay, Gigha and Arran, Inveraray Castle, and an 18th Century jail.
