Rugged mountains, mysterious lochs and windswept beaches all make the Highlands one of the most romantic regions of Scotland.
Explore it all from one of Scotland’s most romantic hotels: Ardanaiseig.
A previous winner of the Most Romantic Hotel category at the Scottish Hotel Awards, Ardanaiseig Hotel sits on the shores of Loch Awe.
Built in the Scottish Baronial style in 1834, Ardanaiseig Hotel is a gorgeous country house hotel at the end of a winding track near Taynuilt in Argyll.

If you decide to take dinner in the hotel then you are in for a top flight gastronomic experience, not to mention fantastic views of the loch from the dining room.
The kitchen uses the finest, seasonal produce which Scotland can provide to create their mouth-watering dishes.
The menu changes regularly but typical main courses might be the fillet of wild turbot with peas, tomato, artichoke and morels or the charred sirloin of Scotch Aberdeen Angus with potato purée, wild mushrooms and home-smoked ham.
It’s no wonder that the restaurant has three AA rosettes.
This Big Deal writer stayed there a few years back and its loch side setting is as achingly beautiful as the house’s lavish interior.
Not that you need to take my word for it. As well as numerous awards, the Ardanaiseig Hotel is rated a brilliant 4/5 on TripAdvisor and the following quote is typical:
‘Amazing. Booked for a birthday treat and it didn’t disappoint. Quirky hotel with charm aplenty. Food great. Staff welcoming and helpful. Arrived late on the Friday but still a warm welcome and sandwiches in room. Looking forward to our next stay…’
If you are looking for an atmospheric hotel for a romantic break then Ardanaiseig on the shores of Loch Awe is a sure fire winner.
