Craig Lora - the cosy cottage on the river - is a delightful refurbished 19th century detached stone cottage on the bank of the River Orchy about half a mile from the village of Dalmally set amidst beautiful countryside. Ideal for hillwalking with Ben Cruachan mountain range, delightful woodland walks, fishing on the Orchy, Strae and Lochy - rich in trout and salmon - wildlife with golden eagles, otters and red deer, castles - including the romantic ruins of Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe, boat hire, golf (9-hole at Dalmally) and fascinating pre-history in Kilmartin Glen all set in beautiful tranquil countryside; visit the 'Hollow Mountain' water power station deep in Ben Cruachan (where you can take a bus inside) or there is the exhilirating walk to the dam high above where the vista alone is worth the climb - stunning views and fresh air - or, if all this is too much, just sit, relax by the river and enjoy Craig Lora - the cottage on the river.

Historic Inveraray is just 15 miles where you may wish to visit Inveraray Castle, the beautiful home and gardens of the Duke of Argyll.
