Long, lovely and lush

Loch Awe is Scotland's longest freshwater loch. Its gentle shores are fringed with impressive conifer forests and gorgeous old oakwoods carpeted with mosses, ferns and wildflowers in summer.

The forest wildlife here is varied and incredibly rich. There are big red deer and tiny wood ants, scampering red squirrels and soaring golden eagles. Spend a week exploring the waterfalls, hill lochs, crannogs, picnic sites and miles of waymarked trails and forest roads, and you'll still have plenty more to see.

Feel small in the cool shade of Mackenzie's Grove: these big trees could be the tallest in the west.
