The Colintraive Hotel is easily accessible by water due to its 6 moorings which are available for use all year round. We are the perfect stopping point for sailors enjoying the West coast, only a few hours sailing from Largs, Portavadie, Tarbert and Rothesay. If you intend to use our moorings, please call ahead to ensure availability. The moorings are located just past the ferry and the first 6 are marked for hotel use only. Priority is for customers who are dining in the bar or restaurant however if there is availability sailors may use the mooring for a small fee which goes towards the maintenance of the moorings.

With regular flights almost every hour of the day from London to Glasgow, a trip to the Colintraive Hotel couldn't be easier! Renting a car from Glasgow airport would allow you to reach the Hotel in under 2 hours.  On the way, you meander the shores of Loch Lomond and rise through some of the finest Munros Scotland has to offer along the rest and be thankful. The drive alone is worth the flight but the real treasure is to be found once you reach us.
