I worked as a receptionist at the Crinan Hotel some 40 years ago (my first job away from home) and had always wanted to go back. first Saturday with nothing planned for ages we decided to go for it ! The car trip from Glasgow was lovely through Inverary then Lochgilphead and right along the canal and there at the very end is the Crinan Hotel. Really strange stepping back in time and I couldn't quite believe that not a lot had changed. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and shock shock my old boss Nick Ryan and his wife Frances still run this family hotel. had a lovely walk around, Mr Ryan told us the take the lift to the 3rd floor where they have a spectacular gallery displaying Mrs Ryans paintings, with outside space to take in the breathtaking views out over the canal. We had lunch in the seafood restaurant which was really fab. The dressed crab was delicious as were the salad leaves and tangy salsa. My husbands haddock was super sized and fresh fresh fresh fab.!!! what a great place has really stood the test of time, will not leave it another 40 years before we return that's for sure. !!! Ps and Mr Ryan was a bit less scarey than he was a way back then !!!!!
