Knipoch Hotel Information


On the shores of Loch Feochan, situated on the historic burial route of the Kings' from Scone Palace to Iona, Knipoch is a house with a long history dating from 1592. Nowadays it is a family-run luxury hotel with an emphasis on good food, for which it has received various awards. Wines also feature strongly with a list of personally selected wines. Situated 6 miles south of Oban, overlooking Loch Feochan, ideally situated for touring Argyllshire and the Islands. Castles, gardens and historic monuments abound in the area, and the scenery is beautiful, with a panorama of mountains, lochs and islands unfolding around almost every corner. All the rooms have private facilities with combined bath and showers, heating, direct dial telephone, TV, radio, hair dryers and a view of either the surrounding countryside or the loch. As the hotel is situated in unspoilt countryside, all of the rooms have a delightful view of either the surrounding gardens or Loch Feochan. However, most important is the warm and friendly atmosphere, which you will find here.

The Craig family home since 1969, Knipoch opened as a hotel in 1981, and still provides the charming, peaceful character of a traditional family country house. From our comfortable rooms, to our warm inviting lounge/bar and delicious homemade food, we like to make everyone feel part of the family during their stay.
