Sometimes all you want to do is sip a cold, local beer while staring out at a majestic loch.
Sometimes, even though the loch view is important, you would prefer to enjoy it from inside a warm, cosy hotel.
Sometimes you don’t really want to put in a lot of effort into getting to this majestic place. A train directly from Glasgow and a two minute walk from the station would be ideal.
This deal for a stay at Ben Cruachan Inn meets all this criteria. Available seven nights a week from 1st October 2019 until the end of March 2020, it would make a wonderful Scottish break.

Explore Loch Awe
The Ben Cruachan Inn is situated on the banks of Loch Awe, just a two minute walk from Loch Awe train station on the Glasgow to Oban line and three miles west of the village of Dalmally.
The spectacular view of the loch from the hotel is entertainment enough but there’s plenty of hiking, fishing, boating and skiing opportunities in the surrounding countryside.
There’s also many nearby historical sights to explore, like the Old Ruined Village and Paddy’s Point, the Duncan Ban Monument, and Kilchurn Castle.
