Welcome to the Loch Awe Community Website

We are a community-led site, aiming to provide information for the residents living around Loch Awe and its visitors.

Our community stretches from Bridge of Orchy in the north, through Dalmally, Lochawe, Cladich, Ardbrecknish, Portsonachan and on to Eredine in the south and includes the longest freshwater loch in Scotland - Loch Awe.

We are a not-for-profit organisation and subscriptions from accommodation providers and businesses fund space to promote community activities and services.

The district offers a fabulous wilderness for anyone interested in outdoor pursuits. 
So much is on offer - hill walking, climbing, cycling, fishing, as well as lochs and rivers. 

There are good transport links with the rest of Scotland by road and rail and there are ferries from nearby Oban, which can take you to the Western Isles.
