Our visit was before the takeover.
It was apparent at the time that it was none too soon. There is little or nothing to do in Tighnabruaich, apart from walk up and down a long and decaying, though picturesque front, with, at the time, excellent climate and relatively few midges .
The hotel food was good and well served.
The bar had a potentially excellent atmosphere, however, was hardly ever occupied, not even by staff, and though there was no-where else to go, the floor was littered with cold chips and the remains of a "fish supper".
For the two days we were there we hardly saw a soul. A few day trippers parked on the front, looked at the sea, then went away.
On balance, I would be happy to give it a second chance if we could have the same room with the same outlook.
Location, if you want to take the trouble, is delightful.
