Loch Awe Hotel, Argyll, Scotland

This postcard, probably produced by the Hotel, advertises the facilities available: Golf Course, Motor Garage and Electric Light!

The Hotel is still open and their website has a good history page.

Trains stop at the station near the hotel. This station is on the Oban branch of the West Highland Line, originally part of the Callander and Oban Railway.

On the right of the postcard, at the end of the loch, is Kilchurn Castle.

The ruined structure, on a rocky peninsula at the northeastern end of Loch, was first constructed in the mid-15th century by the Campbells of Glenorchy.

Kilchurn Castle, cared for by Historic Environment Scotland, is open to the public in summer.

Loch Awe (Loch Obha in Gaelic) is a large body of mostly freshwater in Argyll and Bute, Scotland, UK.

The loch has given its name to a village on its banks, variously known as Loch Awe, or Lochawe.

There are several islands within the loch:

Fraoch Eilean, Inishail, Innis Chonain and Innis Chonnell.
