We try our best to offer all locally sourced products which I am sure you will agree, are of the finest quality. McIntyre and McQueens of Bute butcher, Fyne fish, Neil  for the Langoustines, Fyne Ales from Loch Fyne, Fish from Gigha and Tarbert landed from the Johnstons. brothers. Winston for the venison, Local eggs from Bogies Farm and  when the fire is roaring we thank Chris and Roddy  for helping top up the logs.

Our restaurant and lounge have period features and furniture creating a relaxing atmosphere in elegant surroundings. The views north & south of the Kyles from this room are spectacular. The bar is more relaxed affair

We enjoyed our autumnal stay so much that it's tempting to keep quiet about the hotel for selfish reasons, but the owners really do deserve every success. Our room had beautiful views over the water to Bute, (the ferry is a minute's walk from the hotel) and was decidedly cosy. Best thing about the hotel, though, was the welcoming bar where we ate on all three nights of our trip: the food was excellent, likewise the wines, there was a nice friendly atmosphere - not always the case when you are in someone's local - and a warming log-burner, so the overall experience was very relaxing. We aim to return next year.
