Hotels and Accommodation

ARGYLL & BUTE

 

     An Lochan, Tighnabruaich

 THE IMPRESSIVE FRONTAGE LEADS TO AN EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE EXPERIENCE...

 The beautiful lochside hotel of An Lochanin Argyll rests on Scotland’s West Coast, facing the Isle of Bute. An Lochan (Gaelic for 'by the loch') has been awarded three coveted Red Stars by the AA, and joined an elite club called Inspectors Choice - signifying An Lochan as one of the very best hotels of its type in the British Isles.

 In addition to being awarded AA rosettes it also features in both the independent Good Food Guide and the Good Hotel Guide. It's the perfect place to escape from the pressures of everyday life and immerse yourself in pure hedonistic pleasure.  If you enjoy the finer things in life - supremely fresh seafood and game in our restaurant, fine wines and ludicrously comfortable beds, a relaxed round of golf or some excellent fishing - your stay at An Lochan  there in Argyll will leave absolutely nothing to be desired.

SOME OF THE FRESH LOCAL PRODUCE

The secret of a meal to remember? For the two restaurants at An Lochan Tighnabruaich, it's all about fresh local ingredients. Which is why you'll often see Shonna and Mary, still in their dripping wet-suits, delivering scallops to the kitchen; Arthur setting out in his boat in pursuit of plump langoustines; or Winston heading into the hills, on the trail of Venison....

...AND MORE TO GLADDEN THE STOMACH

 ...(Back in 1966, Winston Churchill left school at the age of 15 to follow his passion for the outdoor life and maintain the family tradition, by training as a gamekeeper, working with his father. Four decades later, he supplies all the hotel's venison - stalking with his dog Daisy in Glen Lean, where the deer feed on myrtle and wild thyme, which makes the meat even more delicious. And if you can't quite believe the name - the Spenser-Churchill Family challenged it when they saw it in a newspaper article: there's a story to be told there, if you ask in the Hotel )

Waking up at An Lochan is pretty special, too. Each of the eleven luxurious ONE OF THE LUXURIOUS SEAVIEW BEDROOMS OVERLOOKING THE KYLES OF BUTE bedrooms is individually furnished and decorated, and all but three have stunning views over the Kyles of Bute. And you'll find your bathroom has precisely what you need to help you relax and wash away all your  SPACIOUS AND COMFORTABLE BEDROOMS THROUGHOUT

 

 

worries: bath big enough for a proper wallow; warm slate tiles underfoot; and a plentiful supply of extra-fluffy towels and locally produced toiletries from Denise Purdy.
