Knockderry Country House Hotel, Cove, Nr Helensburgh

Country House Hotel

Shore Road, Cove, Argyll And Bute, G84 0NX

    With recent awards from the Scottish Hotel Awards 2014, for our chef and for quality of hospitality, Knockderry Country House Hotel is the perfect base for guests looking to explore the area.

    The unique coastline, fairy-tale castles and famous distilleries, mean there is so much to do and see.

    The hotel is within easy reach of Loch Lomond, Loch Fyne and the historic town of Inveraray, yet it is less than an hour's drive from Glasgow and less from Glasgow Airport.

    EatScotland Says:

    Knockderry House provides formal and informal eating in most attractive surroundings. Friendly staff, a welcoming ambience and high quality food await, with much local and other Scottish produce incorporated proudly throughout the menu.
