Loch Awe, one of Scotland's largest lochs, stretches over 26 miles in length, spans up to a mile in width in certain spots, and plunges to depths of 300ft. It not only offers awe-inspiring scenery but is also a popular angling destination in Argyll, renowned for its giant ferox trout. These formidable brown trout have transitioned from feeding on invertebrates to preying on other fish, allowing them to grow significantly larger and live longer. Loch Awe has seen the capture of several British records, including an astounding catch on March 15th, 2002, weighing an incredible 31lb 12oz! While most of the brown trout in the loch average 6 to 8 ounces, fishing for the elusive Ferox Trout offers a compelling challenge for passionate anglers. Other species that can be found in Loch Awe include Rainbow Trout 'escapees,' Sea Trout, Salmon, Arctic Char, Perch, and Pike.

The Old School in Dalavich provides an enchanting escape into the heart of Scotland's natural beauty and offers an array of experiences for nature enthusiasts, anglers, and anyone seeking respite in this captivating corner of the world.
