A romantic loch-side country hotel close to the foot of Ben Cruachan Mountain, with breakfast and a dinner option

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 was named Country House Hotel of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards, and it earned the title of Romantic Hotel of the Year in Argyll and Lomond for 2014, as well as three 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 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 from Cornel Uys.

Bedrooms are super-cosy and have an inviting lived-in feel, with hand-picked antique features and plenty of luxurious amenities. If the mood takes you, grab a book and curl up in the lounge by the crackling fire or take a picnic in to the scenic surrounds. Ardanaiseig Hotel has scooped a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
