Delicately rippling beneath the conservatory windows of the Portsonachan Hotel, the long slip of Loch Awe is a freshwater fisherman's paradise, while heather-covered hillsides and horizon-scraping mountains hide many an outdoorsy pastime beyond.

In an en suite double or twin room with full Scottish breakfast each morning and a three-course dinner on one night
An old coaching inn tucked away at the edge of the loch, the Portsonachan Hotel and Self Catering Lodges serves lavish breakfasts in its conservatory against a backdrop of glassy waters and mist-cloaked hills. The hotel extends along the bankside with its Cruachan Restaurant, which boasts a menu of Scottish classics crafted with local produce where possible. Over 30 Highland whiskies prop up the Captain’s Bar, while open fires and comfy sofas in the cosy sitting room greet wind-blown cheeks fresh from the blustery outdoors.
Loch Awe is famous for its fishing, so take one of the hotel's boats and paddle out across the gently rippling loch to look for perch, roach, and pike. For something a little more demanding, go canoeing or sailing, before leaping into the saddle of a sturdy mountain bike to follow one of the lochside trails deep into the forest. Tug on some hiking boots and head to the hills with map and binoculars for a chance to glimpse ospreys and eagles broad-winged against the sky. For sights of a man-made nature, make the 15-minute drive to Kilchurn Castle at the loch’s north-eastern end, where the 15th century seat of the Campbells now cuts a ragged profile of Romantic ruin.

The Portsonachan Hotel scored a comfortable 3.5/5 on TripAdvisor. Some opinions of the lodges and the decor varied, though hotel guests complimented the staff along with the food and the location. Some guests were a little apprehensive about drinking the water in their rooms due to the peat content, though the hotel has now responded to this and supplies bottled water free of charge.
