We know this area well and usually go self-catering, but this time we stayed at Kilcamb for one night.It's an absolute gem.
Room 12 was an incredibly spacious suite,beautifully decorated with 5 small windows mostly looking onto the loch.The room is no good for tall people(we were advised of this) as it has sloping ceilings - but we didn't mind as we're not that big! A lovely bathroom and elegant sitting area.More like 5 star but cosier,I thought.
The setting is glorious - big sweeping lawns and little paths cut into the grass to allow easy walking down to the shore with the only sound, curlews and oystercatchers.
We ate in the very attractive new Brasserie (the word hardly does it justice, it's quite posh).We noticed most of the 'fine dining' food is on the same menu as the Brasserie though you can also opt for fish and chips and more casual food,But the options were so attractive we decided to go for the Fillet and Foie Gras (£25) and the Trio of Venison(£20).Both were absolutely superb.Desserts - I just couldn't make up my mind.The Banana Daiquiri, Banana Creme Brulee and Peanut Butter Ice-cream concotion was to die for.Seriously good cooking.
Breakfast was one of the best I've had - the melon and orange cocktail with sorbet was gorgeous,really unusual.Smoked haddock was first class.
Professional and friendly staff,beautiful public rooms with gorgeous views,all very relaxed.We will definitely stay again or even just stop in for lunch or dinner.
1.5hrs away(on a VERY winding single track road) is fantastic Sanna Beach and the Lighthouse.If good weather, the drive (opposite direction) to Kingairloch is stunning too.
This is sea-eagle, golden eagle and otter country.
