The intimate whisky bar and two lounges with roaring fires, exude comfort and a real warmth of hospitality.

Don't forget we also offer a luxury self catering accommodation in our luxury holiday cottages to rent, Bramble Cottage and The Old Smithy for those who would like a little more independence but with the flexibility of having hotel facilities right next door. The best of both worlds.

We also have the most amazing cycle tracks with a scenic cycle from Oban to Fort William, or perhaps starting from Port Appin for a little short cut!
