An easy drive from the delightful village of Tayvallich, Cairnbaan is among only 12 Hotels given the status of Scotland's Heritage Hotels.
Welcome to Cairnbaan Hotel, a stylish, relaxed and pleasant place that has been awarded three stars and a rosette with the AA. Cairnbaan is also among only 12 Hotels given the status of Scotland's Heritage Hotels. We have 12 luxurious and relaxing rooms, all individually designed and well equipped with some additional touches. The Cairnbaan Hotel is situated at Lock 5, approximately halfway along the 9 mile-long Crinan Canal. It can be reached from the north (Inveraray) on the A83 or the A816 (Oban), or from the Cowal Peninsula on the Tarbert - Portavadie ferry. To the south are Kintyre and the Isle of Arran via the Claonaig - Lochranza ferry. During its course from Ardrishaig northwards to Crinan Loch, the canal passes through some of Argyll's most outstanding countryside, and its 15 locks and 7 swing bridges provide added interest for visitors. For the sporting guest, golf is available at the nearby Lochgilphead Golf Club. The excellent fishing includes facilities for Sea Angling and Salmon Fishing. Many attractive Hill Forest Walks are to be found in the vicinity of the Hotel and walking or cycling along the Crinan Canal is a popular pursuit. The hotel is an easy drive from the nearby village of Tayvallich. There is so much to see and do.
