A rolling lawn meets the shore of Loch Shiel where Glenfinnan House Hotel stands in its unique position, across the bay from the National Trust for Scotland monument to Prince Charles Edward Stuart (a.k.a. Bonnie Prince Charlie). Ben Nevis, the UK's highest mountain, is visible from the Glenfinnan Estate and a 10-minute walk away is the famous Glenfinnan viaduct railway bridge which was used in scenes from various Harry Potter films.

This Scottish country house is a fine stone mansion dating from 1755. Attractive public rooms include a comfortable drawing room, a beautifully appointed dining room and a welcoming bar where traditional music is often heard. Manja and Duncan Gibson are the resident managers - and extremely hospitable hosts - who will welcome you into the delightful hall, where a log fire blazes.

Manja and Duncan don't expect guests to require a key: the atmosphere is akin to staying in a friend's Highland home. The charming bedrooms, many with a stunning loch view, some with a garden view, are furnished with solid, mahogany and oak furniture. The décor and original fittings suggest complete relaxation. Accordingly, there are no televisions or telephones in the rooms: it really is like staying in a private house. Select from the Four Poster Room, Double/Twin room, Family Room, Family Suite (with adjoining bedrooms) or the Jacobite Suite. The Garden View rooms have spa baths so that those without a loch view have an extra special treat. All rooms are provided with a vase of fresh flowers, fruit bowl and tea and coffee tray.

As befits a stay at a traditional Highland home, good food and drink (even music) is order of the day. Duncan Gibson is the classically trained chef delivering consistently superb meals. Glenfinnan House provides a good, home-cooked Scottish breakfast which is far and above "the usual run of the mill", smoked venison, kippers or poached egg with smoked salmon and a light creamy dill sauce. Large cafetières of coffee, fresh fruit, cereals, orange juice, croissants and pain au chocolate will set you up for the day.

Scotland is steeped in history and romance...the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald being just one example. More recently, Scotland's reputation as one of the world's most romantic destinations has been highlighted by the recent spate of celebrity weddings over the past few years. This beautiful hotel is available to reserve as an exclusive wedding & honeymoon destination, or to celebrate a special anniversary.
