A small selection of
Woodland Log Cabins and Riverside Lodges located on the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs
National Park in Scotland.
It can be time-consuming searching the internet for holiday accommodation, and often all you
can find are the big agencies with thousands of properties to let. We are a small
independent operator and this site is an introduction to what we have on offer. If you are
interested in staying for a holiday in our self catering accommodation simply follow the links on
Now here is a little information about the area. First of all, we are
located on the West Coast of Scotland, not too far away from the Scottish Central Belt. Glasgow
city centre is less than 90 mins drive, and Glasgow International Airport is less than 1 hour away.
The West Coast is known for its rugged scenery of loch, mountain and forest and is regarded by many
as the Highlands of Scotland. We live here, and the romance and beauty and wonderful mountain
scenery normally associated with the Scottish Highlands is what brought us here.
There are many types of self catering accommodation available in the
area, from cottages to caravans, lodges, chalets and log cabins. We offer you the opportunity to
stay in an authentic log cabin located beside the famous Pucks Glen waterfall and gorge walk in the
Argyll Forest, or in a nearby Riverside Sheiling overlooking the River Eachaig. The Pucks Glen walk
is accessible from your cabin at Pucks Glen Lodges (100m) and the Riverside Lodges (100m) and
immediately you will sense the magic and mystery of a time gone by. Many have likened it to the
forests of the Lord of the Rings. It was named after the mischevious sprite Puck of a Midsummer
Nights Dream renown.
The mystery of the area extends beyond Pucks Glen into the afforested
slopes around the villages of Kilmun, Blairmore, Ardentinny, Sandbank and Dunoon where you can
experience for yourself the ancient cairn known locally as Adams Grave. Walk the mediaeval
Ardnadham path flanked by platforms on which were built ancient dwellings, and signs still of the
industrial activity carried on - charcoal burning, smelting and agricultural activities, now almost
lost in the bracken. Crannog remains can be seen above the surface of Loch Eck in times of little
The area is also home to the Tall Trees of Benmore within the
Botanical Gardens. Giant Redwoods tower over, guarding the park.
Strath Eachaig straddles both sides of the River Eachaig, a silver
stream winding between Loch Eck and the Holy Loch. You can choose to stay at the
Rashfield Sheilings, two luxury self-catering lodges overlooking the river. Otter and Pine Marten
have been reported, and the Red Squirrell and Red Deer often seen by the banks. As locals we have
seen many different birds along the river, including the Dipper, Grey Wagtail, Heron, Woodpecker
and Duck. Is there a better way to relax than quietly watching the wildlife from your deck? The
Sheilings are especially for couples looking for peace, relaxation and a little touch of
Both Pucks Glen Lodges and Rashfield Sheilings are available all year
round for week breaks, short breaks, weekend breaks and romantic breaks. Each lodge at Pucks Glen
Lodges has full heating facilities, and at The Sheilings each cabin benefits from a real log burner
to keep out the cold in winter.
So if you are a couple looking to get away for a retreat, this could
be the place for you... If you have a dog, bring him too. Pucks Glen Lodges are pet
Yet, if you want action and
adventure, well theres not much that is not available. Choose from Paint balling, Quadbiking,
Swimming, Cycling, Horseriding, all within an hours drive. Bring the children during holiday time
and even the dog - they are sure to love it. Try your hand at fishing in the lochs and rivers, or
golfing at one of several golf courses nearby. And of course, theres dining in a fine selection of
restaurants, country inns and cafes from Dunoon to Loch Fyne.
We came to the area on holiday last century, around 1998, and two
years later we moved our home here with our family of four children. Living in Strath Eachaig
ourselves we have seen the area in all weathers - bright sunshine, storm clouds gathered and
heavens opened, a winter wonderland. We began letting the Pucks Glen Lodges in 2002, and in 2013
added the two Riverside Sheilings.
We love it here and we are sure you will too..!
