The old school in the remote village of Dalavich has been lovingly converted to make 4 apartments in an area of stunning scenery and peace and quiet. Rent the properties individually or together to sleep a total of 16 people.
Dalavich is a delightful village with shop, church and cafe on the western banks of Loch Awe, 30 miles inland from Oban. Inverliever Forest is close by with forest walks, cycle routes and nature trails where red squirrel, pine marten, osprey and golden eagles can regularly be seen, or meander up to Otter Point and Avich Falls. Loch Awe is the third largest freshwater loch in Scotland and some of the largest trout in Europe have been caught right here, salmon pass through the loch travelling from the River Awe to the River Orchy and the loch is home to several ruined castles on islands, one of the most photographed castles in Scotland, Kilchurn Castle, can be found at the northern end of the loch.
The Old School as the name suggests was formerly the village school but now provides comfortable accommodation for groups or families in one of the four apartments. Each named after a traditional school subject, the apartments are furnished and equipped to a high standard in an area of peace and tranquillity. The village, approached over 14 miles of single lane road with stunning scenery all the way, is the perfect base for those wanting to escape city life, you can walk or cycle for miles in any direction before coming across a shop, pub, restaurant or another human being.
The apartment has central heating and comprises:

The old school house is a lovely place to stay. Geography is a spacious well equipped unit with an excellent shower and cooking facilities. The conversion from a classroom has been undertaken to a very high standard and everything is well maintained.
We found it an ideal place to stay with our dogs as it has a large garden and there is a forest walk at the edge of the village.
The owners are friendly as are the residents of Dalavich which has a Post Office/shop and a social club where visitors are welcome.
We are delighted you have enjoyed your stay at the property.
We hope to welcome you back to Geography of another of Cottage Holiday Group's properties in the near future.
