Kilcamb Lodge

An 18th-century stone house with Victorian east and west wings, Kilcamb Lodge stands amid meadow and woodland grazed by red deer. Its lawns run down to Loch Sunart. Variously home to an admiral, a church minister and a teacher, and once barracks for the troops of Bonnie Prince Charlie, it is today run as a small hotel by Sally and David Ruthven-Fox; Paul Arcari is the manager. The atmosphere is ‘relaxed and friendly’, with ‘homely’ lounges and ‘log fires everywhere’. The spacious bedrooms, each of which has a loch view, have been refurbished in 2015; upgraded bathrooms have a power shower. Lunch and dinner are served in the candlelit dining room and the more informal brasserie. A new arrangement with Tiree-based fishing boat Kirsty Ann supplies fish for the daily specials on chef Gary Phillips’s menus. They might include dishes like Kilcamb seafood platter; West Coast sea bass, tomato and olive tart. At breakfast there are home-made croissants, granola, porridge, berry compote, kippers with parsley and lemon butter, Inverawe smoked salmon, as well as the full Scottish.
  • We were warmly greeted. Our bedroom was tastefully decorated and very quiet; everything scrupulously clean, great lighting. The pleasant dining room has good napery, china and service. The food was delicious but we thouht the portions were small. Breakfast was first rate. Anne Goh, the manager, is friendly, efficient and observant. A luxury hotel with a luxurious feel.

  • A tastefully decorated siting room with lovely large windows overlooking lawns which go down to Loch Sunart. A perfect garden setting. Our rooms was nicely furnished. A good bathroom. The food was enjoyable. The owners were not in evidence.
