More Information

Steeped in history, this idyllic location is an excellent resort from which to explore the surrounding countryside and its many attractions. The Clan Campbell stronghold of Kilchurn Castle stands at the north eastern end of Loch Awe. The location of the hotel offers glorious views of the loch and the mighty Ben Cruchan.

The Hotel has a mixture of family, double and twin rooms, all with pleasant outlooks and en-suite facilities. But for that special moment why not reserve one of our loch view rooms which are available for a reasonable supplementary charge. Our guest lounge is a comfortable and cozy area where you can browse through our library, sit and play board games or just relax in front of the fire. This room is steeped in history and has ambience that must be experienced for you to understand the very special place in history this hotel enjoys. Occasionally throughout the day guests will be able to experience the joys of the pipes.

Our magnificent Cruchan Restaurant runs for over half the loch side frontage of the hotel. The excellent menus are complimented by the superb views from the tables. The cuisine is modern Scottish.
