Feòran by shore of Loch Awe - Kilchrenan - near Oban, Argyll Scotland
Large Self Catering Holiday House

Kilchrenan is a small peaceful West Highland Village situated amongst some magnificent scenery, and is approximately half a mile from the north westerly shores of the beautiful Loch Awe. The area is dominated by Ben Cruachan (just less than 3700ft) and its neighbouring peaks with the softer, gentler and partially wooded slopes surrounding Loch Awe providing a delightful contrast.
