There is so much to do in the Loch Awe Area with everything from inspiring walks and climbs, boating, wild-swimming, fishing, golfing, historic castles and churches, splendid gardens, wildlife and the national park, friendly villages, fisheries and distilleries ...to name a few.
Mostly though, it is the breath taking scenery on the southside shore of Loch Awe with the stunning views of this magical loch and beautiful landscape beyond that keeps people close by. With three Bond films (Ian Fleming house close by), Harry Potter and Game of Thrones all filmed around here, our location is photographer's and painter's dream.

MAKE US PART OF your journey
Portsonachan can be a wonderful part of an exploratory journey . With the stunning coastal routes and every A-Road between your various staging posts passing through spectacular scenery, it's as much about joyous travel as it is about the destinations themselves.
Besides the magical Highlands, we're also about getting to know the undiscovered, completely tourismless side of the country, which is North Scotland.
With places, where there’s more sheep and hairy cows than cars on the roads, dramatic mountain ranges and mysterious lochs, ancient pine forests and a pristine coastline, this is a wild landscape unlike any other. From Scottish Islands and fishing villages along the coastline, to the natural wilderness of the Highlands inland, this is a trip and experience of a lifetime.
Bar & Restaurant
The Cruachan A La Carte Restaurant offers fresh local and seasonal produce with a focus on the best that the West of Scotland has to offer – all this in a dining room with spectacularly scenic views of Loch Awe.
Our menus are regularly updated and include a comprehensive selection of vegan dishes. Select drinks from a range of ales, including our very own Portsonachan brew, as well as wines sourced from a local merchant. These are served alongside a choice of soft drinks and mineral water.
We can cater for up to fifty people in the restaurant to help host your special event.
Eat in our restaurant or outside on our the terrace or have a takeaway for your lodge, all with spectacular views whilst you eat.
"We loved the quiet, calm setting and view from our lodge. Our favourite part of the day was our early morning walks along the loch shore - sunset was gorgeous too. Staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough to ensure our stay was excellent. There was a lot on offer from the excellent restaurant, outside terrace or takeaway food to walking, fishing, boat trips and loads of helpful information about the area. We would definitely recommend a stay here!" Mark August 2021
