Craigard House Hotel occupies an imposing position overlooking Campbeltown Loch. A recently converted Victorian mansion, originally built by the owner of the Lochruan Distillery, which closed in 1925. Craigard offers a friendly and informal stay, in comfortable and welcoming rooms, with en suite bathrooms, free WiFi, USB sockets, and free parking.
Most of the bedrooms have stunning views over Campbeltown Loch - with our South-facing location offering panoramic vistas of the sunrise and sunset. The range of rooms varies from one single room, through standard double rooms, to large and superior family rooms containing a double bed and either one or two single beds. We also have a Four Poster Junior Suite, with a sitting and dining area, and a magnificent bow window - ideally placed to take in the wonderful view. All bedrooms are well-appointed, with fully-tiled en-suite bathrooms including bath, shower, huge, fluffy towels, bathrobes, comprehensive welcome tray, mineral waters and smart toiletries. There are three ground floor rooms, each with walk in shower.
The Award-winning Lochside Restaurant offers excellent local seafood, shellfish, meat, cheese and game - lovingly prepared by Head Chef and his team. All food is freshly prepared - home-made bread, and desserts with our own orchard fruit and beloved Sticky Toffee Pudding! There is an ever-changing a la carte menu, and daily specials, including freshly caught seafood and shellfish from local boats - such as Loch Fyne Langoustines, Scallops and Mussels; Turbot, Monkfish, Sea Bass, Dover Sole, Halibut; Smoked and Roast Salmon, Smoked Mussels, Haddock and Kippers from Kintyre Smokehouse; Lamb and Beef from Ifferdale Farm and Ballywilline Farm, and Pork from Killocraw Farm. In the lounge, local Real Ales from Arran and Loch Fyne, sit happily alongside the fine old and new world wine list and range of Malt Whiskies, including a number of Springbank and Glen Scotia Campbeltown Malts. Stunning views make the elegant Restaurant so popular, that it is advisable to book in advance!
Visitors travel from all over the world to play the renowned Classic Links Courses of Machrihanish GC (10% discount for Craigard Guests) and Machrihanish Dunes GC. Dunaverty GC is also a fine challenge, with wonderful scenic views on a beautifully kept links course.
The three award-winning Distilleries in the town are an extremely popular draw for visitors from all over the world. Springbank Distillery, unique in that it carries out all the processes, from malting to bottling, on one site, produces three distinct Malts with different characteristics: Springbank (lightly peated), Longrow (heavily peated), and Hazelburn (unpeated and triple distilled). Their newer sister distillery, Mitchell's Glengyle, makes the lightly peated Kilkerran. While Glen Scotia Distillery nearby, owned by Loch Lomond Group, produces a range of peated and unpeated Malts.
The latest Distillery in the area is Beinn an Tuirc, making Kintyre Gin, a multi award-winning spirit.
Kintyre is a beautiful peninsular, with island views to South, East and West. Whether your interest is scenic beauty, golf, walking the Kintyre Way, mountain biking, Malt Whisky or Gin, ornithology, competitive running, or any of the multitude of watersports and leisure activities the area has to offer, we will do our best to provide a comfortable base. It is even possible to hire the whole hotel. All arrangements can be made to suit your individual needs - from tee times to transport.
Our aim is to ensure that Craigard is the Hotel in which we would like to stay - if we were away from home.
We look forward to welcoming you,
Roger and Lori
