Holiday Rental House
Enjoy a superb holiday in one of the last remaining Scottish Camping Railway Carriages set in a spectacular location on the beautiful shores of Loch Awe, the Railway Carriage has been carefully restored to maintain all original features and provides comfortable accommodation for a quirky and unforgettable holiday. The carriage originally ran on the London to Edinburgh main line and has been converted by an enthusiast into a delightful and unusual holiday home. This Railway Carriage is set just metres from the shore of Loch Awe which is Scotland's largest inland loch and has fabulous views over to Kilchurn Castle in one of the most scenic yet easily accessible parts of Scotland. Accommodation for 5 on one floor. (There are two sets of steps leading up to the carriage from ground level).

About the neighbourhood
Apart from the wonderful views, the small village of Lochawe has the Ben Cruchan Inn an excellent pub serving good food and a post office/shop all within a very short walk. There are beautiful views over to Kilchurn Castle, one of the most photographed castles in Britain which is accessible by foot along an attractive path from the Castle's carpark which is just one mile from the Carriage. Loch Awe station is a stop on the West Highland Line from Glasgow to Oban which, together with the local buses which pass the road end, allows visitors to arrive and reach many local places of interest by public transport as well as by car. The Hydro-Electric Power Station (well worth a visit) within the 'hollow mountain' of Ben Cruachan is served by its
