Loch Awe is Scotland's 3rd largest Loch and her longest at 21 miles in length.  It is world renowned for its trout fishing and has a large salmon population.  In Kilchurn Castle, Loch Awe boasts one of Scotland's most photographed attractions.

Cruachan visitor center can be found on the shores of Loch Awe and provides a fascinating glimpse into one of Scotland's most remarkable Hydro-Electric projects where water is pumped up hill to a man made loch during periods of energy surplus, and allowed to flow down hill through turbines to provide power output during periods of peak demand.
