Why Stay At Ardanaiseig

A grand 18-room country hotel in a former residential home on a picturesque lake in western Scotland, The Ardanaiseig is the ideal setting for a romantic country weekend.

The Scoop

A landmarked Scottish estate originally built as a private home in 1834, this country hotel on beautiful Loch Awe is a popular romantic getaway for couples from Glasgow and Edinburgh. The hotel's name, which means "ferry point" in Gaelic, is a nod to the importance of the lake, which supplies the fresh wild salmon to the property's award-winning restaurant. Many of the 18 guest rooms—all of which are individually decorated in vibrant shades of pink, red, or blue—enjoy magnificent lake views. Adding to the allure is an in-house whiskey expert who oversees tastings of world-renowned local brands. (The hotel is, after all, just 40 minutes from Oban.) The expansive grounds include a "secret" walled garden, and the property outfits guests for fishing right outside its door.

Insider Tips

On a clear day, take a small boat to Loch Awe's private island, Eilean a Chomraidh, which is also owned by the hotel. Ask the staff to pack you a lunch.

Take advantage of the hotel's dedicated ghillie, or hunting specialist, who will guide you on the hotel grounds.

Why We Love Argyll

The western part of Scotland is majestic—untouched by urbanization and picturesque all year round, with snow-dusted mountain peaks in winter and scenic drives down emerald-green tree-lined roads in summer.

Don't Miss

Inveraray Jail: For history buffs, earmark an afternoon for the macabre (but fascinating) Inveraray Jail, a 19th-century prison 35 miles south of the hotel. Actors in period costumes guide visitors through the inmates' experience, including some of their punishments and an old-fashioned trial.
Church Square, Inveraray. 011-44-1499-302-381
Admission $14.
