Welcome to the Loch Awe Community Website

We are a community-led site, aiming to provide information for the residents living around Loch Awe and its visitors.

Our community stretches from Bridge of Orchy in the north, through Dalmally, Lochawe, Cladich, Ardbrecknish, Portsonachan and on to Eredine in the south and includes the longest freshwater loch in Scotland - Loch Awe.

We are a not-for-profit organisation and subscriptions from accommodation providers and businesses fund space to promote community activities and services.

The district offers a fabulous wilderness for anyone interested in outdoor pursuits. 
So much is on offer - hill walking, climbing, cycling, fishing, as well as lochs and rivers. 

There are good transport links with the rest of Scotland by road and rail and there are ferries from nearby Oban, which can take you to the Western Isles.

SSEN's Monstrous Proposal for More Pylons Dissecting Dalmally >>> 


 A85 – West of A819 Inveraray Junction resurfacing scheme 11th-15th March.

BEAR Scotland, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will be carrying out essential carriageway maintenance on a section of the A85. These works are planned to commence on the 11 March 2018 for 5 nights, with no works planned for the weekend. It is proposed that the resurfacing be undertaken between the hours of 9pm and 7am Sunday night to Friday morning in an effort to minimise disruption.  

A diversion will be in place (attached) for traffic travelling between Tyndrum and Oban, however to further mitigate the impact of the works an amnesty will be in place at 10pm, 1am and 4am. At these times traffic will be escorted under convoy through the site.

Traffic travelling from Inveraray in the direction of Tyndrum and Oban via the A819/A85 may experience some disruption on the 11th of March while work takes place over the A819 junction, however, this should be intermittent in nature.

Cladich Bridge Inspection Works : details>>>

The Roads Structures Section have requested that the B840 be closed at Cladich Bridge for bridge inspection works. The bridge inspection vehicle will take up the full width of Cladich Bridge when the inspection is being carried out. The works will take place on Friday 23rd February, 09.00 to 16.30. Traffic heading westbound, down the loch, can use the UC77 Cladich Link Road to avoid the closure. There are no alternative routes for eastbound traffic. The road will be opened at half-hourly intervals to allow eastbound traffic through. Emergency vehicles should be let through without delay.




Sun 11th Feb - Thurs 15th Feb


The resurfacing works are programmed to commence on Sunday 11th February 2018, with completion anticipated by 07:00 Thursday 15th February 2018. The works are planned to be undertaken between 1900hrs and 0700hrs each night. 

Unfortunately, due to the restricted road width within this section we have no option but to close the road in order to ensure the safety of the workforce and members of the travelling public. The A85 will therefore be closed in both directions over the extents of the works each night. During these times traffic will be stacked at either end of the closure then escorted through the work when safe to do so.

Alternatively diversions will be in place via: 

  • A816 Oban to Lochgilphead, A83 Lochgilphead to Inveraray then the A819 Inveraray to Dalmally. 

Or via 

  • A828 Connel to Ballachulish, A82 Ballachulish to Tyndrum then A85 Tyndrum to Dalmally. 

Access for emergency vehicles, local bus services and to properties located within the extents of the work will be maintained, although some disruption is inevitable. The road will be fully open during daytime Monday 12th to Wednesday 14th.
