Some Scottish hotels overlook a loch.
Set in 20 acres of Ayrshire countryside, Lochside House Hotel and Spa has views of two.
Nestling in rolling hills near New Cumnock, the hotel overlooks The Loch of the Lowes and has views of the Creoch Loch.
It is also pleasingly convenient for a relaxing short break. Glasgow is less than an hour’s drive and Edinburgh can be reached in under two.
Originally, a shooting lodge for the Marquis of Bute, the hotel combines a traditional Scottish welcome with 21st century amenities and striking, contemporary design.
