Sir Fitzroy MacLean, one of The Creggans Inn’s previous owners, was a writer and diplomat who also served in the SAS during the Second World War.
Many think that he was the inspiration for Fleming’s James Bond.
However, take up today’s Big Deal and there will be no need to battle baddies; crack spy codes or jump out of planes.
Sir Fitzroy has done all that so that you can relax in one of Argyll’s top beauty spots.
Just over an hour and a quarter drive from Glasgow, The Creggans Inn Hotel is an award-winning, family-run business that sits on the shore of Loch Fyne with views to Inveraray.
Each of its fourteen bedrooms has been individually decorated and has its own distinct character. They are all en-suite and feature little luxuries such as the Sea Kelp toiletries.
Many of the bedrooms feature breathtaking views over Loch Fyne as do the guest lounges where visitors can enjoy a dram, a real ale or a glass of wine while watching the sun set over the loch.
A mouth-watering full Scottish Breakfast is included and, should you choose to dine in the hotel, The Creggans Inn’s award-winning kitchens offers the finest local seasonal produce for you to enjoy in the relaxed and informal MacPhunn’s Bar & Bistro.
An ideal base for exploring Argyll and central Scotland, the area surrounding The Creggans Inn Hotel boasts castles, gardens, wildlife, golf, quad biking and fishing.
Many a TripAdvisor reviewer has had a great stay. This is what user citygal234 wrote recently:
‘Superb. An ordinary common or garden B&B it certainly is not, it’s a lovely country pub by the side of the loch with the most wonderful views you can imagine for this part of Scotland. Our room was second to none with the biggest en-suite I’ve ever seen, it felt both luxurious and made you feel very at home all at the same time. The restaurant was superb, service was friendly and the food was absolutely wonderful, we just didn’t want to stop eating as it was so good. Afterwards we spent the rest of the evening in the bar area where we found the mixture of visitors and locals extremely good company – all in all a very very nice experience of Scottish hospitality at it’s very best.’
