Professor Stephen Hawking
We are sad to hear the news today that Professor Hawking has died. The owners of the Crinan Hotel remember regular summer holiday visits to the Hotel by Stephen Hawking and his young family. "He was wheelchair bound but still able to communicate naturally and did on many occasions try to explain to us about black holes".
For a number of years, the Crinan Hotel's Room 27 has been dedicated to Professor Stephen Hawking.
