Here enormous turbines convert the power of water into electricity, available to you in your home at the flick of a switch.

  • Kilchurn Castle   At the north eastern corner of Loch Awe lies Kilchurn Castle, built in the 15th century by Sir Colin Campbell and is probably the most photographed castle in Scotland. The castle is open from April through to September each year and is well worth a visit. Access is via a short boat trip from the pier in Loch Awe village or by foot from the side of the A85 near the railway viaduct
