Nowadays it is a family-run luxury hotel with an emphasis on good food for which it has received various awards. Wines also feature strongly with a list of personally selected wines.

Situated 6 miles south of Oban overlooking Loch Feochan ideally situated for touring Argyllshire and the Islands. Castles gardens and historic monuments abound in the area and the scenery is beautiful with a panorama of mountains lochs and islands unfolding around almost every corner. All the rooms have private facilities with combined bath and showers heating direct dial telephone TV radio hair dryers and a view of either the surrounding countryside or the loch.
