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 …
... lane road took at least an hour. I don't know how many times we stopped for photos, and we could have taken many more had there been more stopping places. This is a dead end track, so we came back to the A82 for the final run through Glencoe, to the village of Glencoe. This area is steeped in history, and is the scene of one of the most treacherous events in Scottish history, which we will explore tomorrow. However the scenery is absolutely ...
... us around. Glasgow has for a very long time had a bad wrap. But our stay here was just great. We headed out for dinner to the centre of town, found Jamie Oliver's Italian restaurant and sat for another yummy meal and glass of Chillian Sauvignon Blanc. The waitress was lovely 'again' and we got chatting re what we were doing tomorrow. Well we did have sort of plans but was all changed once she mentioned "The Falkirk Wheel" Could not pass up that wonder! The Falkirk wheel is ...
... set it on the train. We arrived in Fort William and decided to go to the grocery store to pick up dinner. Fort William is a really small town and we weren't sure how much we would find to eat near where we were staying. We got to our B&B and the lady set us up a table to have our dinner. After dinner we went for a walk to ...

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.
