Loch Melfort Hotel & Restaurant

Spectacularly located on the west coast of Scotland overlooking Asknish Bay, the 4 star Loch Melfort Hotel is a quiet and tranquil getaway, with the awe-inspiring backdrop of woodlands and the magnificent mountains of Argyll.

Friendly staff attend to every need and there is a warm, welcoming atmosphere from Calum and Rachel Ross and their team.

Spacious bedrooms are peaceful and well appointed, with comfortable furnishings and the majority have large patio windows overlooking the islands of Jura, Shuna and Scarba, with balconies or terraces and fabulous sea views.

The award winning restaurant, which has breathtaking views as far as the eye can see, is perfect for a romantic meal. Guests may feast on the fresh local fish, shellfish landed at the local pier and free range meat or game from local farms, complemented by an extensive selection of wines.

There is also a mouth-watering array of home-made bread, desserts, delicious ice creams and Scottish cheeses. Breakfasts are legendary, with locally sourced products, including organic and fairtrade cereals and porridge, homemade marmalade and Loch Fyne Kippers.

The Bistro at Loch Melfort hotel, next to the famous National Trust Gardens, serves light meals lunches, suppers and afternoon teas from 11am - 10pm, with a licensed bar and boasts amazing sea views and a warming fire on the colder days.  For children, we have a Kids menu available, playground and Highland cattle to go and visit. Bring your wellies for a paddle at the beach! Local outdoor activities include fishing, sailing, riding, walking, golf and mountain biking. Well behaved dogs welcome.

Visitors can explore the nearby islands and local places of interest including Mull, Kilchoan Castle, Castle Stalker and the stunning Dunstaffnage Castle (home of Clan Campbell).

Arduaine Garden, situated adjacent to the Hotel, is extremely beautiful and home to a diversity of plants and trees from all over the World. It is especially renowned for Rhododendrons in the Spring.

Kilmartin Glen is well worth a visit as is the Bridge over the Atlantic of the famous Corryvreckan Whirlpool, made famous on Robson Green's Wild Swimming on ITV.
