The space
North Lodge overlooks the meeting of the waters between the River Echaig and the Little Echaig looking to the Cowal Hills beyond. Situated in the Argyll Forest Park and the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, the Lodge is in one of the loveliest locations in the area. The Lodge is equipped with a welcoming wood burning stove that provides a warm highland welcome after a hard day walking through some of Scotland’s loveliest scenery. There is room for up to 7 people to comfortably sleep in North Lodge with the addition of a folding bed. There are three bedrooms, two twin rooms (one with adult bunkbeds) and a large double. There is a large luxury wetroom with underfloor heating as well as a second WC and wash hand basin. The Cot House Hotel and restaurant is a ten minute walk away on the newly constructed pavement whilst Dunoon with its restaurants and shops is only 5 miles drive or bus journey away. Further afield is the lovely Whistlefield Inn. Public transport is available from early until late on the hour into Dunoon.

Guest access
Guests have complete access to all of the Lodge.

Other things to note
Access for disabled persons is restricted as there are a number of steps to be negotiated to gain access. There is a lovely covered terrace with comfortable wooden benches for sitting out on warm evenings or sunny days.

Location

Kilmun, Scotland, United Kingdom

The Cowal area is one of the hidden gems of Argyll and Scotland. Although Argylls secret coast is fast becoming not so secret anymore! There are many fantastic walks close to the Lodge as well as some seriously good mountain biking from gentle rides to extremely challenging! Ask the owner for advice on trails and marked courses in the area. There is a kayak which may be available for guests to use as well as paddle, buoyancy aid and splashback. The use of the kayak is entirely at the users risk and responsibility. There is a convenient place to launch kayaks from right across the road from the lodge into the tidal river and sea although this is steep and users must take care as this is not the responsibility of North Lodge Self Catering. This is a very special area and please ask for advice on walks, bike trails and kayaking opportunities.

I am an Archaeologist who grew up in the Kilmun/Benmore/Rashfield area and still have family and friends in the area. I use the Lodge myself whenever I can and love the area especially in Spring and Autumn when we can have lovely crisp, cool and sunny days perfect for walking. I love to listen to music, sit on the terrace at Kilmun, walk and cycle in the area and enjoy the passing of the seasons.
