The Bird Hide is a furnished cosy cabin which sleeps 2 in a double bed.
Relax by the wood burning stove, watch the birds from the seating area outside or walk 50m to the lochside, swim, fish or make a barbeque.
There is no electricity or wifi - though 4G works on mobiles. There is The Hub next door with a comfy sofa, farmhouse table &chairs, games, books, a gas ring, cooking utensils & stove. A 12V shower you plug in your car socket and compost toilet complete the off grid experience.

Die Unterkunft
The Bird Hide is on the shores of Loch Awe, in a secluded area surrounded by a working farm. There will likely be cattle and/or sheep in the field with you. The cabin has no electricity or WiFi and so you can focus for a few days on the beauty and peace of your surroundings and enjoy the birds and some wild swimming free from the demands of the modern world for a few days. The stars are amazing! The Bird Hide has tongue and groove walls that are constructed from 45mm logs, the wood is milled from slow grown sustainably grown Northern Spruce timber. There are 3 double glazed windows facing the loch in all directions. There is no running water inside the Bird Hide and we provide drinking water in 5l bottles. There is a tap at the farmhouse available 24/7.
Bring waterproof shoes/boots as there are great walks in the hills around and always bogs and burns to be crossed. If there has been heavy rain there can be muddy patches on the track too.
There is a (pretty basic) solar shower which attaches to something stable above your head such as an overhanging tree branch and warms up in the sun. Good in summer.
There is also a great 12V shower one part which plugs into your car lighter socket and the other into a bucket of water. Heat the water on the stove first!
Cooking is done either on the top of the woodburner, on a barbeque outside or in the Hub next door.

The Hub has a woodburner, large farmhouse table and chairs, comfy sofa, various kitchen utensils, pots and pans and a gas ring. It has books, cards, games and is a great space to paint or read or to cook.

Zugang für Gäste
The Bird Hide is your own. It is fully furnished and sleeps 2 in a double bed. It has candle lanterns and battery powered LED lights and a cosy wood burning stove for those cooler evenings and for making a cup of tea or hot chocolate.
All bed linen and towels are provided and there is a
composting toilet that fits in with eco credentials and reduces our impact upon the environment.

There is a starter basket of wood for the woodburner.

There is space to park your car by the Bird Hide, but if there are cattle in the field please park 50m from the hut in the fenced off area, just in case a cow wishes to admire herself in your wing mirror. IF YOU CAR IS LOW TO THE GROUND THE TRACK IS NOT SUITABLE. Please leave your car up at the farmhouse in this case.

Please also make sure not to walk amongst the cattle especially when they have calves at foot. Please give them a wide berth. The field is a couple of miles long so this is always possible.

The Hub is also your own as is the entire area surrounding you. The only visitors are cattle, sheep and occasionally my children may run by if they are going out in a boat or kayak from the pier below

Weitere wichtige Hinweise
There is a track from the main road down to the Bird Hide. It is a farm track and not suitable for very low cars. There is ample parking at the farmhouse which is a 5 minute walk away if you prefer to leave your car there.

There is no other property in the field with you.

We are approximately 1 1/2 hours drive from Glasgow and 2 1/2 from Edinburgh. Inveraray is the last opportunity to shop at a supermarket (Coop) though Dalmally and Lochawe village both have good village shops 3 miles away.

You can hire a boat from my neighbour Cliff at Lochawe Boats to go to the Lochawe shop - which is directly opposite the Bird Hide, past a small island with a ruined castle on it and the remains of an ancient crannog. There is a pier below the Bird Hide for mooring.

Argyll is the most beautiful place in the world and the views from the Bird Hide are out of this world and change all the time, but please bear in mind there are days it rains, days it is windy and days the sun can burn you very easily. Please be prepared for all 3 in a day.
Please ask me any questions you may still have though I hope I have covered everything.

Lage

Lochawe, Schottland, Vereinigtes Königreich

The Bird Hide Cabin is located in Argyllshire, in the West Highlands of Scotland, on a farm. The area is a rural, secluded, mainly farming community and makes the perfect base to explore all that this beautiful location has to offer from mountains, lochs, historic castles and prehistoric attractions. There are 7 castles on the loch itself. There is a wide variety of wildlife from a resident Osprey, Golden Eagle and Sea Eagle to Red and Roe deer, foxes and pine martens.

The neighbourhood is an area of outstanding beauty. You can see the stars at night and hear little more than the birds and the train that rumbles along the West Highland line 3 times a day the other side of the loch. The Old Military road runs from the farm up to the monument in Dalmally (no cars on it) and is a great walk with a picnic to see the views out to the Isle of Mull. There is an excellent restaurant and pub in Lochawe and a fish and chip takeaway/delivery service in Dalmally. The pub in Inveraray The George won Pub of the Year in Scotland recently and is wonderful. There are so many things to do round here and I provide a basket of leaflets. I can also give you recommendations of places to go that are off the beaten track.

Fishing from the shore is free provided you ask me for a permission slip as landowner. If you fish from a boat you will need a permit available when you hire the boat or at the local shops.

I am the 4th generation of my family to live on the farm here. I know the area well and can advise people where to go both on and off the beaten track. I have been to the places I recommend and often with my 4 children. We live an outdoor life, we spend a lot of time in and on the loch, fishing, canoeing, having barbeques, foraging for food. We have many different animals on the farm. A lot of the furniture and furnishings are antique, upcycled, painted, or in some way colourful. We have a much loved family off grid hut and quirky campervan which are also available for rent.
