A Bit About the Tower

St Conan’s Tower nestles in a natural tapestry of woodland and water. Overlooking Loch Awe, but secluded in its own wooded landscape of redwoods, fir trees, oaks, birches and rowan, this historic house offers a haven of tranquillity. So many of our visitors comment on the stress-free environment, as well as the relaxation provided by the comfortable, well-equipped apartments, each with their own video, book, and CD collections. Only 5 minutes from Lochawe village shop and pub with access to the A85 west to Oban and the Isles (or east to Glen Coe, Loch Lomond or Stirling). Also Lochawe railway station on the Glasgow-Oban West Highland Line. The Tower’s situation could not be more convenient for touring the Highlands or simply enjoying the spectacular setting and scenery. Offering short breaks or week-long holidays, St Conan’s Tower is an ideal getaway. St Conan’s Tower was built by the Duke of Argyll’s great-grandfather, Walter Douglas Campbell, at the end of the 19th century. Walter was a self-made architect and delighted in building unusual properties, the best known of which is St Conan’s Kirk in Lochawe village. The Tower itself, built of granite from Cruachan mountain, was intended as a winter home for the Campbell family who lived on Innis Chonain, the island just off the shore of Loch Awe. Through its 100-year history, the Tower has undergone several ownerships as private dwelling, boarding house, youth hostel, and B&B establishment, before becoming both a residential home and self-catering apartments for the present owners, Sheena and Jackie. Visitors have the added luxury of the unique Tower Lounge at the top of the house, from which panoramic views across Loch Awe, Kilchurn Castle, and the mountains, enhance afternoon tea, or evening drinks. As well as conservatory style furniture, a writing desk with a postcard selection and books about the area and its wildlife are provided. Sheena and Jackie bought the Tower in 1996, have renovated, refurbished, and continue to improve the house and garden to create a comfortable permanent home for themselves and temporary home for apartment guests. Visitors receive a warm welcome and can call on the owners at any time should they need anything. The house is fitted with the latest fire safety precautions and has the added advantages for visitors of a laundry/drying room, carport for bicycles, and ample car park.
