Crinan Hotel


This romantic retreat enjoys a stunning location with fabulous views across the Sound of Jura. The hotel stands at the north end of the Crinan Canal, which connects Loch Fyne to the Atlantic Ocean. For over two hundred years this hostelry has been caring for the community needs of this tiny fishing village, and welcoming travellers. This sense of continuity has been lovingly provided by Nick and Frances Ryan for over 40 years. Relax with a drink in the Gallery Bar on a summer's evening, or settle in the Mainbrace, a wood-panelled seafood bar which extends to the patio overlooking the fishing boats. The Westward Restaurant's cuisine is firmly based on the freshest seafood - it's landed daily just 50 metres from the hotel. Look out for hot Arbroath smokie; risotto of crab with cream cheese and chives, and - if meat is preferred - pan-seared Scottish sirloin steak.
