Romance can be hard to pin down exactly.

However, we reckon that a pretty close definition would be standing on the decking at the Galley of Lorne in Ardfern and watching a red sun sink over the sea loch or, on those chillier evenings, cosying up together by a roaring log fire in the bar.

Nestled on the loch side in the picturesque village of Ardfern, the Galley of Lorne started out as a 17th century drovers’ inn.

These days, it is one of the top-rated inns in Argyll with six comfortable and tastefully decorated bedrooms; welcoming bars with roaring log fires and a highly rated restaurant. The inn also boasts panoramic views along Loch Craignish and out to Jura and Scarba.

Get inspired with today’s Big Deal on a romantic stay in the Galley of Lorne Inn, Argyll.

Autumn getaway

A favourite among 5pm customers, today’s offer is available seven nights a week. Option one of this rather lovely Big Deal is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in one the Tiree, Uist, Arran or Islay rooms at the Galley of Lorne Inn, Ardfern. Option two is for a two consecutive night stay.

A bottle of Prosecco will be waiting to welcome you to your room when you arrive and a late check out at noon means that you won’t have to rush the next morning.

There is a £10 supplement for Friday and Saturday night stays.

Double glazing, LCD TV, Freeview channels; clock radio with iPod docking facility and wireless internet access are all standard in the cosy rooms.


The rooms listed above are gorgeous but, for a really special stay, there is also the option to upgrade to the Skye suite which, as well as stunning views looking over Loch Craignish to the isle of Jura, also has a large corner bath with an overhead shower.

Brilliant breakfasts

In the morning, The Highlander full Scottish breakfast will set you up for a day exploring beautiful Argyll.

Or you could choose something a little lighter such as the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or the local, naturally smoked haddie poached in buttermilk. As you may have guessed, breakfasts are quite an event at the Galley of Lorne.

Local produce

If you choose to take dinner at the inn then you will enjoy the best ingredients that the local land and sea can provide.

The menus change seasonally but typical dishes might be the seared scallops from the Isle of Mull; the steamed Loch Craignish mussels or the char-grilled sirloin steak.

Sip on the sundeck

A collection of 50 malts and an ever-changing selection of real ales make both of the inn’s CAMRA-rated bars rather tempting. If the weather is fine the guests can sip a malt on the sundeck and enjoy the views.

Great reviews

Ideal for exploring the Hebridean islands, nearby castles or just walking along the beach, the Galley of Lorne Inn is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway.

Check the Galley’s glowing TripAdvisor profile to see what others thought of the inn. We liked this recent review:

‘Fantastic hotel. We will be back. Stayed for 2 days on the way up to Mull, wish we could have stayed longer! Lovely hotel, fabulous room (+ dog friendly). Andrew took the time to introduce himself to every guest and made sure that everything was perfect. Great atmosphere in the bar, sensational food!’
