Ardeonaig Hotel & Restaurant

Colonial-style luxury retreat on Loch Tay, Perthshire.

A stay at Ardeonaig is a relaxing treat with real luxury and genuine personality. There’s everything from loch views to cosy peat fires and decadent bathrooms to unique South African inspired Rondawels overlooking Loch Tay and the snow covered peaks of Ben Lawers.

There has always been plenty to interest guests in the area and opportunities increased considerably when Ardeonaig recently took over local Ardtalnaig Estate. Activities now range from field sports and fishing to photography stalking and guided walks together with lunch, dinner or an overnight stay in our Mountain Bothy.

Needless to say the majority of the produce served at Ardeonaig is from the estate or is grown or reared locally. There is a strong emphasis placed on food, wine and service at Ardeonaig and recognition of this was made apparent when chef/owner Pete Gottgens was awarded the Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Food Award 2009 in December.
