In a quiet place of undisturbed tranquility and almost surreal natural beauty, where the slopes of Ben Cruachan fall into the clear waters of loch Awe, lies a deeply romantic and luxurious old country house.
Ardanaiseig was built in the Scottish Baronial manner for Colonel Archibald Campbell of Clan Campbell in 1834. It was designed by William Burn and is listed for its architectural importance.
For Weddings we have the capacity for up to 60 day guests and a license to hold civil ceremonies inside the hotel or within the grounds. A purpose-built amphitheatre on the loch shore offers a particularly beautiful setting for the exchange of vows and wedding photography. We have in a number of situations had a marquee built which raised the capacity to 120.
With 16 bedrooms, a stunning drawing room, relaxing bar and romantic loch-view restaurant, Ardanaiseig feels like a luxurious home-from-home for couples and their guests, especially when booked on exclusive-use wedding venue basis. Every room within the hotel is individually designed and adorned with lavish antiques, and honeymooners are particularly fond of the contemporary private Boatshed Suite on the loch shore.
