The Loch Awe Carriage


A traditional railway carriage newly converted to holiday accommodation.

This self-catering holiday coach is now available to book for your Scottish Highland holiday. It is positioned in a stunning location on the shores of Loch Awe: one of the most scenic yet easily accessible parts of Scotland.

 from the carriage

Loch Awe is Scotland's longest and one of the largest inland lochs. Offering fabulous views over to Kilchurn Castle, the coach is the ideal base for exploring the surrounding area where there is much to see and do - or you can just laze by the loch, relaxing amidst the glorious Scottish scenery.

"The Gateway to Heaven!"

Michael Dobbs


One of our videos shows the train from Glasgow passing the carriage on its journey to Oban. If travelling by rail its just a short walk across the foot bridge from Loch Awe station to this outstanding holiday location.





Now converted into a delightful and unusual self-catering holiday home the coach retains as many original features as possible and will provide visitors with an unforgettable holiday.
