Hide away at an impressive castle-like country house on the banks of Scotland's Loch Long, including breakfast, a cream tea and a glass of prosecco
A stay in the enchanting Knockderry House opens up a world of fairytale castles, stunning Scottish coastline and famous distilleries. It stands out on the banks of Loch Long with its distinctive turrets and towers, and inside it’s every bit as impressive, with wood-panelled rooms, log fires and stained glass windows.
Originally built in the mid-1800s as a summer retreat and now a historic country pile with a warm ambience, it comes as no surprise that Knockderry House has recently won the Romantic Hotel of the Year award at the 2016 Scottish Hotel Awards. It also sports a gleaming TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
The cosy wood-panelled drawing room is a comforting hideaway on chilly days and perfect for a pre-dinner drink in the impressive restaurant. In warmer weather, you can drink in splendid loch views from the garden terrace. This four-star hotel is a perfect base for exploring the stunning Loch Lomond, mainland UK’s largest body of water, within the huge Trossachs National Park or the Argyllshire coastline.
The area reveals some truly breathtaking scenery, with mountains and glens beckoning heart-racing treks and bike rides or simply tranquil strolls. Loch Fyne, the historic town of Inveraray and cosmopolitan Glasgow are all a manageable hour-long drive from this hidden retreat.

The rooms are all individually designed and feature local artwork and free Wi-Fi. The three Contemporary King rooms in the new wing are decorated in a rural Scottish palette, with views out over the garden. One King room is located in the main house and holds a separate bathtub and walk-in shower. Opt for a Master room for even more unique charm, comforts and space.

Dining is a key part of the Knockderry House experience, not only because the food is so fresh and lovingly prepared, but also the terrace – where you can drink in splendid loch views in the warmer weather – and the cosy wood-panelled dining room are memorable, calming settings. You’ll find both formal and informal dining here, and whatever you eat, you can guarantee it's made with the finest seasonal Scottish produce.
Knockderry House feels remote, located in a tiny village on a peninsula, and yet it lies a mere hour from cosmopolitan Glasgow and less than that from Glasgow Airport. It’s a perfect base for exploring the stunning Loch Lomond, mainland UK’s largest body of water, within the huge Trossachs National Park or the Argyllshire coastline, plus Loch Fyne and the lovely historic town of Inveraray, with a magnificent coastline and an imposing castle.
