Dalmally

Dalmally

Dalmally was established in the mid-1400s by the first lord of Glenorchy, Sir Colin Campbell, to serve his nearby residence, Kilchurn Castle. Today it’s a small village of wee cottages, stretching two miles east from the top of Loch Awe, along the Strath of Orchy. The name ‘Dalmally’ means ‘pebbled valley.’

Dalmally’s popularity with tourists is helped by the convenient Dalmally railway station. Running along the Glasgow-Oban line, it makes the nearby lochs and mountains easily accessible. Dalmally’s village shop and hotels also make it a good stopping point along the Coast to Coast Walk, from Oban to St Andrews.

Within the village you can explore the Glenorchy Parish Church, a category A listed building constructed in an unusual octagonal shape. There are a wealth of activities just a short distance from the village too, encompassing both indoor sites and outdoor activities, as well as a number of wildlife-spotting opportunities.

We love Dalmally because...

  • Great base for exploring
  • Attractive landscape
  • Easy access to major cities

In and around Dalmally

Kilchurn Castle

Approachable by road and a short walk, or directly by boat across the Loch, Kilchurn Castle is a majestic ruin of a formerly magnificent stronghold, perched on a rocky peninsula overlooking Loch Awe. Built as both a home and fortress by Sir Colin Campbell, the first lord of Glenorchy, in the 15th century, this striking castle is a great place to explore and offers picturesque views from the upper levels of the keep.

Fyne Ales Brewery Tap & Shop

Located at the head of Loch Fyne, the brewery uses water from the surrounding hills to brew its beers. You can go for a stroll around the Loch or hills and then stop in at the taproom for a pint, fresh from the source. Alternatively, go on a brewery tour led by their experienced brewers to better understand the brewing process, then sample a selection of ales in a tutored tasting. You can also try a steak and ale pie made with beef from their own Highland herd.

Cruachan Power Station Visitor Centre

Hidden underground, deep inside Ben Cruachan, the Cruachan Power Station provides eco-friendly energy for the National Grid. Admission is free to its visitor centre, where you can learn about the complex construction of this eco-friendly hydro-electric power station, and there are plenty of interactive activities for children. A walk up to the dam is also an impressive spectacle from below, with amazing views across the mountainous landscape from the top.
