“Our stay at Sloy cabin with our dog was just what we needed for a complete week of rest...”
Reviewed 9 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Sloy cabin offers you a well planned compacted accommodation for a week away from home...the kitchen is fully equipped for basic cooking...a bleach spray is always good to travel with and due to the compact size is quickly taken care of.

Well rested and a little fitter after our stay, bike hire is a must to explore the hidden area and beauty of this little part of the world.

“Perfect Location, Comfortable, Clean and great Value”

Just back from 4 nights in the Strae cabin at Loch Aweside Holiday Park and thoroughly enjoyed the break. Booking was simple, access was as easy as knocking on Irene's door and picking up the key and we weren't disappointed. In our opinion the location on the park was perfect - just away from the water front enough to avoid the breeze, away from the playing field for a bit of privacy and not buried in the woods and the constant 'twilight' - we had an open view across the stream, plenty of light and only 200 yds from the waters edge. It's also one of the few cabins with it's own fire pit which really made the holiday for us - you just can't beat marshmallows toasted on the open fire.
Size wise the cabin was perfect for the four of us with a comfortable double bedroom and bunk beds for the kids (11 +14) with another two bunks available for when they fell out! Everything in the cabin worked as it should (TV, DVD, heaters, showers etc) so no complaints there but in fairness some elements could do with an update. The couch had seen better days in terms of comfort and the cooking equipment was only just capable of feeding four hungry mouths - sharp knives and some bigger pots would make a difference - especially as there's aren't really any option of eating out within a 10 mile radius. Anyway - the benefits far outweighed the slight niggles and it didn't spoil the holiday for us.
Make sure you stock up before you head down the 14 ml single track from the main road as the shop in Dalavich only has 'emergency' supplies like biscuits, pot noodles, ice cream and alcohol - no bread or milk !! Plenty of supermarkets in Oban but a great butchers and grocery store in Taynult which has all you really need!
There are some nice walks through the forest straight from your cabin door and the rental also comes with fishing rights for Loch Awe (from the site only).
All in all it was great value for money, a comfortable, cosy cabin in a great location both in terms of the site and the location on Loch Awe - brilliant scenery all around, a peaceful setting and plenty to do.
We will certainly go back to the same cabin again and as mentioned - one or two upgrades would make all the difference !

“So peaceful”
Reviewed 1 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We loved our 3 night stay at Sloy Cabin. It was warm and cosy and the view of the Loch and easy access to it was fantastic! We virtually had our own little pebble beach. Rarely have we stayed anywhere so quiet and peaceful.The wildlife was interesting including the red squirrel. We were there during a quiet season and the rain showers did not spiil our stay.
