The Tabernacle


“Its clever interior includes a secret bunk for a child, en-suite, galley kitchen and wood-burning stove...”


Dan Mulally, designer and builder of The Tabernacle at Loch Aew


The Tabernacle


Coming soon to Loch Awe is our characterful hand-crafted tin-clad Tabernacle. Nestled in its own private woodland setting with a hard-standing car park space, the Tabernacle enjoys views of Loch Awe and Ben Cruachan beyond. Perfect for a romantic get-away, the Tabernacle also boasts a clever double-up bunk hideaway for a child to accompany adults. We think it's the ultimate Glamping experience in Argyll.

The Tabernacle will to be ready for rental in 2017. Watch this space.

As cosy as it is deceptively spacious, the Tabernacle combines a beautiful and practical galley kitchen with a spacious bed, shower room and wc plus mod-cons such as TV, Sound station, underfloor heating and wi-fi. Images above are representative. Here's a sneak preview of some images of the Tabernacle, which is in the final stages of its hand-crafted construction.

Staying in the Tabernacle, you’re a 5-minute stroll along its private path to the cosy and friendly Ardbrecknish bar and restaurant. You’ll also have shared access to the Blue Cottage Activity Shed and its bikes, golf clubs, fishing gear and more.

Tabernacle guests receive a free welcome basket with essentials and some local produce such as Loch Fyne Ales. Take the strain out of shopping for provisions - if you would like the cottage stocked for your arrival with fresh, local and in-season produce and maybe some luxury items, we can provide this service for an agreed supplement; simply contact us when booking to make arrangements.
