The Crinan Hotel is a magnificently eccentric hotel in Argyll on Scotland's beautiful west coast.
Family owned for over 40 years, guests at Crinan benefit from many original and authentic touches and a charming artistic flair. Visitors enjoy genuine warmth and colourful hospitality in a hotel that respects its history and place in a stunning and wild environment.
All of the hotel bedrooms have breathtaking views of the sea, some have private balconies and each room is dedicated to a famous Scottish artist.
Located at the north end of the Crinan Canal, Crinan has been a fishing port for over 200 years. It is unique and unspoilt. Jumbo prawns (langoustines) are landed 20 metres from the hotel kitchen at 17.00 hours in time for dinner. The Westward Restaurant serves fine and exciting fare. The Crinan Seafood Bar is deliciously more informal. Scottish beef, hill lamb and locally sourced organic produce are served in both. The seafood is caught by small local boats and trips and classic yacht charters can be arranged. Lock 16, our famous Seafood restaurant which has won many accolades including best Seafood Restaurant in the UK, is open during the summer on Friday and Saturday evenings for dinner and for private parties at anytime.
