#1 of 10 hotels in Dunoon
Victorian in stature and quirky by nature, Abbots Brae hosts Scotland's smallest bar, a restaurant showcasing Scotland's natural larder, well appointed rooms all nestled in three acres of gardens and woodlands with breath-taking sea views! Romantically secluded accommodation set in the tranquil seaside village of Dunoon. Nestled high amongst established woodland with sensational views over the Firth of Clyde and surrounded by some of the most breath-taking scenery you will ever see, Abbots Brae has earned itself an enviable reputation as a luxurious home away from home. Built originally, in 1843, as a holiday retreat for an affluent Glasgow glass merchant, the house still maintains many of it's original features. It is set in its own secluded woodland garden with breath-taking views of sea and hills, yet it is only one mile from Dunoon Pier and one hour from Glasgow (via ferry).

A business trip to the Argyll and Bute area led me to this hidden gem. I wasn't responsible for the hotel bookings and when my colleague and I asked our locally based colleagues about the hotel no-one knew of it, which made us wonder where we would be spending the night. Oh
