Hotels in Ardeonaig
Youâ€™ll find Ardeonaig on the south shores of Loch Tay, not far from the village of Killin. Set within fourteen acres of private gardens (recently planted with fruit orchards, wild berries and grape vines), the views across Loch Tay to the summit of Ben Lawers are quite breathtaking, especially when dusted with snow.
Our Finglen Burn tumbles down to the loch and its pebbly shoreline with boathouse and moorings. Yet all this tranquility is just over an hourâ€™s drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow. (Or a twenty minute seaplane flight from the latter.) Weâ€™re small-scale and intimate, very personal. There are just a nineteen rooms in our main inn, two cottage suites and five new burnside Rondavels.
Good food and fine wine in a relaxed atmosphere has been at the very heart of Ardeonaig from the first meal we served. And itâ€™s a real motivation behind our recent building and other improvements. Now, we have the tools to build on our word-of-mouth reputation and formal awards like the Michelin Bib Gourmand and UK Food Inn of the Year. There is a new dining area we have called The Cellar (as in Wine), chefâ€™s tables in the kitchen to witness the passion and drama, an informal area for light meals and snacks christened The Study and, of course, our familiar dining room.
What hasnâ€™t, and will never, change is dedication to the freshest, local seasonal produce, cooked with care and flair to bring out its full flavour. A menu dictated by whatâ€™s best in season. Unfussy, unpretentious, but definitely not run-of-the-mill dining.
