Positioned on the side of a peninsula reaching into Loch Leven, The Isles of Glencoe Hotel is a peaceful retreat with spectacular views of some of Scotland’s most famous lochs and mountains.
A family friendly establishment, the hotel is built in contemporary Scandinavian style and offers the warmest of traditional Scottish welcomes. Outside, the lochside trails and charming woodland adventure playground are ideal for children or secret agents to explore.
The offer is for 2 people to enjoy an overnight stay in a standard double or twin room at the Isles of Glencoe Hotel. Guests will enjoy a two course table d’hôte menu in the evening and a full Scottish breakfast the next morning.
Bedrooms at The Isles are spacious, modern and comfortable and feature commanding views across the loch or to the hills of Morvern. There is WiFi available in the rooms.
In the evening, guests will enjoy a two course set dinner in the spectacular loch side restaurant.
The dinner menu changes daily to reflect the availability of the best local produce. The menus offer a choice between dishes prepared in a classic, simple Scottish style and dishes which look to the rest of their world for their flavours.
Typical dishes might be the roast leg of lamb with a red wine and rosemary sauce; the seafood pie or the roast chicken breast with a spicy peppercorn cream sauce.
As well as a complimentary round of golf at the nearby Dragon’s Tooth Golf Course (club hire not included), guests are welcome to use the hotel’s leisure centre and its facilities which include an indoor heated pool, hydro-seat, bio-sauna and exercise room.

The Isles of Glencoe Hotel has won plenty of fans on TripAdvisor. This is what one happy guest had to say recently:
‘Great staff, great views, great breakfast. Stayed for two nights here in October with our family, 2 adult children and one teenager. The view from our bedroom window was fantastic, absolutely stunning and we come from a beautiful place ourselves! All the staff we had dealings with were, without exception, polite and helpful and in the case of the lovely wee lady at reception – an absolute treasure (she’s the sort of reason people stay in hotels, what a diamond). Beds comfortable, ensuite bathroom and the best breakfast we had on our whole holiday tour of Scotland. Great choices and I can recommend the black pudding. Teenage son and I loved the pool – a great addition to a perfect stay. We will definitely be back.
