Activities & Boat Trips
There is plenty to see and do in Crinan and the surrounding area.
The Crinan Canal walk begins right outside the hotel door, and there are several short walks on which visitors can find out more about this magical destination. Right behind the hotel is our own 'secret garden' - tended by Frances Macdonald, this is open to hotel guests who seek a little sanctuary in which to stroll and contemplate the seasons.
For the more energetic guests there are several golf courses nearby. We have a splendid 40' classic wooden MFV (motor fishing vessel) which can be chartered on a daily basis complete with skipper or for longer bespoke charters. Why not enjoy a lobster lunch at anchor by the Isle of Jura and then stroll ashore to see where George Orwell stayed as he wrote 1984.
