Crinan Hotel – Spring 2017

The Crinan Hotel will be re-opening for the 2017 season on Friday March 3rd.

Until then, we will be busy with refurbishment and improvements to the Hotel.

The new season will see updated menus in our Westward Restaurant (see the Hotel’s website for sample menus for all our restaurants) and there will be a range of over 100 whiskies for you to choose from in our cosy bar.

As ever, you will be made to feel very welcome and we look forward to sharing our idyllic corner of Argyll with you.  You can simply enjoy the views, or take advantage of the opportunity to get out on the water – there are a number of options for boat trips to the islands or to see the notorious Gulf of Corryvreckan Whirlpool in full flow.  In March, Sandy will be running trips on his RIB Venture West (£35 per passenger) and later in the spring, the Hotel’s own classic motorboat, the MV Sgarbh will be back at sea.   On those slightly chilly early Spring days, you can relax with a complimentary dram in front of the fire when you get back to the Hotel.

Boat trips at Crinan on MV Sgarbh

The Crinan Hotel offers the wonderful experience of boat trips on the MV Sgarbh on some of the finest cruising waters in the world, never mind just the west coast of Scotland.

MV Sgarbh

The Sgarbh is a fully restored classic motor boat moored at Crinan right outside the hotel which overlooks the Crinan Canal, the gateway to the Atlantic and the islands.

The Sgarbh (gaelic for cormorant, the sea bird) was built in 1947 on the river Clyde in Glasgow as a herring fishing boat. She retired from fishing in 1953 and then was beautifully fitted out below for cruising.

She is built of teak, fully varnished and completely original, the last of her type. Weighing over 20 tons and at 40 foot long she is solid and safe.

Boat trips and more extensive charters can be tailored to suit your preferences with personalised itineraries. The boat is coded for up to 12 passengers during the day and 4 passengers for overnight charters. Fresh seafood and other local produce can be prepared by the hotel and served during your cruise.

Visit the Crinan Hotel website for more information and booking details – and perhaps take the opportunity to stay at the Crinan Hotel in May and June with our ever-popular early summer “three nights for the price of two” deal (applies to B&B rates on Sunday to Thursday nights only – limited availability).  You can book online here – Crinan Hotel bookings

‘Sleep with Art’ at Crinan Hotel in Argyll

Crinan‘s ‘Sleep with the Art’ is a unique experience, devised by Frances Macdonald and her son Ross Ryan.

A selection of artists have each had one bedroom devoted to their work. Several paintings of that particular artist will be hung one of Crinan‘s bedrooms. With each room named after the artist, guest will be able to enjoy a range of the artists work during their stay at Crinan Hotel.

Crinan Hotel is well established as an Gallery venue on Scotland’s west coast. Owner Frances Macdonald and her son Ross Ryan are well established Scottish contemporary artists and regularly exhibit at the Crinan Gallery.

Works by Frances are in several important private collections at home and abroad as well as corporate collections including Fleming’s Scottish Collection. Paintings by Frances Macdonald can be viewed at her dedicated web site – www.francesmacdonald.co.uk. Frances is represented in Scotland by The Scottish Gallery and in London by The Portland Gallery.

When he is not travelling the globe or sailing, Ross Ryan works from his print studio in the Old Boathouse at Crinan Ferry. Fully equipped for Collograph, Monoprinting, Etching and Woodcut prints, this is where Ross creates his print series and develops new projects.
