Make like a laird and live it up, Scottish-style, at the stately Stonefield Castle. This national treasure sits amid 60 acres of gorgeous woodland and gardens, which reach down to the shores of the sublimely beautiful Loch Fyne. Dating back to 1837, the castle is now a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning hotel but remains home to some splendid examples of Scottish baronial architecture and style. Expect original furnishings, wood paneling, ornate ceilings and marble fireplaces.
While the décor is as traditional as you could wish, the hospitality is as warm as the roaring fire you’ll curl up next to with your evening whisky. Tuck into oysters from Loch Fyne in the restaurant, before choosing from a delicious roll-call of enticing Scottish fare, from venison haunch to whole lobster. No evening is complete without a nightcap, of course, so head to the bar for a wee tipple while you plan the next day’s adventures. Might we suggest ambling through the woodland and down to the loch?
How to Get There
Just returned home (reluctantly) from our second visit to Stonefield.
Absolutely amazing hotel, staff and food.
Staff so friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble and all very happy.
Loved the walk round the island and the grounds.
Food beautiful, everything perfect.
I came here with my husband and just wow! How amazing and romantic the scenic views by the restaurant over the sea and the beautiful island.
Food was wonderful. Staff very kind and the history and layout of the castle is just stunning, the gardens are well maintained - despite the mine holes of a driveway but all in all a wonderful experience
Will come again
Staying for 1 night thought it would be old and stuffy but staff brilliant food menu limited but first class. Room OK bathroom lovely well worth a visit.breakfast good.off the beaten track but worth a visit.
