Our History

From Roberts humble beginings in Dundee as a Self-Employed Joiner, Mike came on board and we built a reputable Locksmithing and Joinery company.


We were looking for a change of pace and couldn't resist the charms of Loch Awe!

Mike is a hospitality manager now employed at The Ben Cruachan Inn as their bar manager as well as handling all of Lock Awe's Admin, Robert is employed locally with Lonan Joinery.


And so begins our journey with Lock Awe Locksmiths...

Our Vision

We quickly realised there was a lack of a competitive locksmith in the area talking to local tradesmen and businesses.


We aim to offer a full security service for domestic and buisness clients throughout Argyll from our new home here in Loch Awe.


We've adopted Kilchurn Castle as part of our logo and will be offering services to both them and St Conans Kirk free of charge in the coming months as we begin trading.
