We have stayed (accompanied by our small terrier) at this lovely hotel three times. It is all that a Scottish Country House Hotel should be. On this cold October night there are big roaring fires in the lobby, sitting room and dining room and our...More

There's absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel, we just found it sort of--underwhelming, I guess. The staff were perfectly nice, but it did feel like we sometimes had to hunt for them. The rooms were spacious and well kept, but we found the bed to...More

About
Description
Nestling beside Loch Feochan in Argyll, Scotland, lays Knipoch Hotel (pronounced neepoch -och as in loch). This four star country house hotel is privately owned and run by the Craig family. We opened Knipoch as a More hotel in 1981 when the original building was refurbished with the reception, kitchen and bedroom wing being added. Prior to this it was our family home, with a history. In 1592, Campbell, Thane of Cawdor was assassinated here at the "house of Knipoch in Lorne". In England as well as Scotland, hotels vary and individually owned hotels each have a personality. At 18 rooms (including suites), Knipoch Hotel is small enough to care for our guests personally, yet large enough to be a hotel. Less
