A loch-side hotel near the foot of Ben Cruachan Mountain, with breakfast and a glass of prosecco

With the slopes of Ben Cruachan Mountain in the distance, the rugged coast nearby and the waters of Loch Awe right on your doorstep, Scotland's dramatic stone Ardanaiseig Hotel is in a spot of astounding natural beauty. It's hardly surprising then that it's been awarded the Good Hotel Guide Editor’s Choice Award for Romantic Hotel, as well as Country House Hotel of the Year 2017. It was also the regional winner in the Scottish Hotel Awards’ categories of Romantic, Wedding and Pet Friendly hotels in 2017. Plus, it sports two AA Rosettes.

Surrounded on all sides by landscaped gardens, wild woodland and loch-side trails, there are countless places to walk, cycle, fish and generally enjoy the great outdoors, if the infamous Scottish weather permits. All that fresh air and exercise is even better when you can follow it with a dram of the finest malt whisky from the bar and award-winning gourmet cuisine. If the fancy takes you, grab a book and curl up in the lounge by the crackling fire.

Bedrooms are super-cosy and have an inviting, authentic feel, with plenty of luxurious amenities. As the Ardanaiseig Hotel is owned by Bennie Gray (of Grays and Alfies Antique Markets fame) you can expect hand-picked adornments throughout, setting the considered, homely mood nicely. Needless to say, Ardanaiseig Hotel effortlessly scooped a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence too.
