Inn at Ardgour
Travel Blogs from Ardgour
After arather quiet Hogmanay, what I didn't realise was the in the highlands everyone goes home at 11pm as they need to be int heir own home for midnight. Hence midnight itself was a fizzer however we had a good night met many people form all over the UK. The pub had a guy on a guitar singing a variety of songs and a girl playinga fiddle so that …
... went on a walking path, possibly about 800 m long, to the top of a Aonach Mor. It was a lovely vantage point and the clouds came and went, alternatively obscuring and revealing the view. When we descended in the gondola we stopped for lunch at the cafe and then drove on through Fort William towards Glencoe. The views of Loch Linnhe, with towering mountains behind it, were absolutely beautiful. The road we were driving ...
... The mountain ranges disappeared into the clouds, making the return journey very different from the outbound one. We were tired from a long day and it started raining by the time we headed out for dinner so instead of our usual evening stroll we decided to drive into town. A good idea as the rain continued into the evening. A very pleasant last day in Fort William. Tomorrow we head north to ...
The clouds have lifted and although it is still overcast the rain has passed for the moment. It is pretty cold so we have finally unpacked the thermals, gloves and hats. The Isle of Skye is a 2 and half hour journey from Fort William through the mountain ranges. We passed by absolutely beautiful countryside which in winter would be snow covered. The numerous lochs, streams and waterfalls were present at every turn of the road as we twisted our way towards the coast. The ...
... for the Isle of Mull, where we hopped on a bus to traverse north to south (1 hr) , onto another smaller ferry and 10 mins later on the Isle of Iona. Two hrs later, reversed. Weather fine, but cool. Returned to Oban, enjoyed a meal at "Coast" - nice restaurant and then walked off what we'd eaten. Oban is very similar to Akaroa / Stewart Island (Sth Is, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at Ardgour
The staff were very friendly, the location was good and the room was fine. The low point was the food - it was very average compared with other places we stayed.
Ideal base and great location
Stayed here for three nights using the Inn as a base for the area- definitely recommended.
Great small hotel, room overlooked the Loch and everyone was friendly.
Location is ideal right off the ferry and on the water.
Room was small but very clean and it had a good shower.
From my initial enquiry right through to check out family were very helpful with all aspects of my stay.
If you are heading up towards Fort William do not be drawn to the bland hotels in the town stay here- it has so much more to offer in terms of location and quality of stay.
As a point on another review- there is now a smoking ban in Scotland ( great news- can not wait for it to become law in England as well) so the main bar is now fine to sit in.
Loved the Inn
Thought the Inn was extremely good in all areas. We could not fault it and would recommend it to anyone.
We were received with a warm welcome at reception, and shown to our family suite which was very clean and fresh, with all the furnishings being quite new.
The bar area was fantastic, extremely cosy and warm, with a few decent beers!
Our view in the morning down the Loch was just breathtaking.
Thanks to Luke and the rest of his family for making our overnight stay one of the most memorable of our brief excursion to Scotland
We really enjoyed our stay at this family-run establishment. We used the inn as a base for exploring Fort William area.
Good for ferry just outside the front door, well placed for exploring Ardgour , friendly staff , reasonable breakfast but mediocre uninspired evening meal . Comfortable room , clean and tidy , nice ensuite . Good views out over the loch . Tables outside if the weather is nice (which it was )
We had a great but short stay here. It is family run, and everyone was very friendly and accomodating. Our room looked right out over the loch and the ferry. Great modern bathroom.
Dinner was good and reasonably priced. Look forward to staying again.
What a gem!
The hotel is located Lochside opposite the ferry. It looks the part, as you go inside, the staff who also own and run the Inn are so friendly, the rooms are pleasently decorated and furnished. The views are just spectacular. Food reasonably priced and of excellent quality. Would really like to keep this one to ourselves, but that wouldn't be fair. This was the best of our touring holiday to Scotland.
I really liked the Inn at Ardgour
My friend and I stayed at the Inn at Ardgour at Easter 2005, and were very impressed. Our room was small, but very nice, clean, and had everything we needed. The views are spectacular. Dinner both nights was excellent, and the breakfasts were well worth getting up for. The atmosphere in the bar, which seems to attract locals as well as residents, is very good. Staff were friendly, and very helpful.
If you're visiting this part of scotland, and you should, I have no hesitation in recommending the Inn at Ardgour.
