Knockderry House is situated on the banks of Loch Long in beautiful Argyll. The food and drink of the area is dominated by the produce from the sea lochs and the rich pasture land that surrounds us.
Our food is influenced by the traditional recipes of Scotland and the fish, game, beef and poultry that the land and sea produce. Please view our sample menus.
Our team take enormous pride in the preparation and presentation of every dish to ensure you experience the true flavour of Scotland. We use only fresh Scottish produce in conjuring up our menus. The venison is stalked from the local hills - the scallops are from Oban - even the breakfast eggs are from Caroline's chickens (Dixie, Susie and Chloe - who live in the next village!!).

We are currently working with our local farmers market and a consortium of other local food producers to source the best local vegetables, fish and meat in order to reduce the food miles travelled from producer to plate.
Dinner is served in the old wood-panelled dining room of the original house with its glorious stained glass and a charming outlook over Loch Long.
During the summer, the garden terrace is the ideal place for a light lunch or an early evening drink overlooking the lochside. In winter, the Lounge Bar with its magnificent woodcarvings and glorious crackling log fires make a suitably comfortable and relaxing environment in which to unwind at the end to a day walking, sailing or exploring the local area.
Knockderry House Hotel provides guests with a welcoming and relaxing environment to escape, explore the area and celebrate with exclusive use country house weddings and private parties. To enhance your stay, we also offer Tailored Activity Eco-Tours and Personalised Walking Tours.
Owned by Murdo and Beth MacLeod and their excellent team of local staff with multiple awards for hospitality and quality of food, Knockderry Country House Hotel offers a truly Scottish country house welcome to all visitors to Cove and the Rosneath Peninsula near Loch Lomond.
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.
