Lodge your bid for loch-side hotel

Argyll business expected to attract global interest

AN award-winning loch-side hotel in Argyll is expected to attract global interest after it was placed on the open market

Located on the edge of Loch Sunart in Strontian, on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, Kilcamb Lodge is set in 22 acres and has two moorings on the loch. The hotel, which was named Romantic Hotel of the Year in the 2010 Scottish Hotel Awards, has ten letting bedrooms, a lounge bar, drawing room and dining room. Current owner David Fox said he and wife Sally have upgraded the hotel during their eight years of ownership. “We moved up to Strontian after looking at many business opportunities and Kilcamb’s location resulted in us falling for this wonderful property on first viewing,” he said. “We have loved every minute of running Kilcamb Lodge as a country house hotel but now is the right time for us to fully retire. We have decided to continue living in this wonderful part of Scotland and will continue to enjoy the spectacular scenery and friendliness of the locals.”


Kilcamb Lodge sits on the edge of Loch Sunart on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula in Argyll.

Knight Frank’s David Reid and Ran Morgan, who are handling the sale, said the hotel is “exceptionally profitable and beautifully finished. It presents an incredible opportunity to live in one of the most beautiful parts of the British Isles and obtain a wonderful lifestyle,” said Reid. Morgan said it’s rare to find a hotel right on the edge of a loch. “It also has 22 acres with planning permission, which will make it very attractive to may potential purchasers,” he added. “I have no doubt that Kilcamb will attract global interest.” Knight Frank is marketing Kilcamb Lodge at offers over £1.4 million.
