The Colintraive Hotel is an award-winning hotel with magnificent views over the Kyles of Bute. Open every day of the year, it’s a fabulous spot for a drink and excellent home cooking. It was Inn Of The Year 2010 and won a gold medal for local food. As well as four lovely rooms, there’s also a friendly gastro pub and restaurant where you can feast on local produce expertly prepared. Local seafood features on the menu, including fresh langoustines caught in the sea in front of the hotel and hand-dived scallops, as well as beef and lamb from Bute and venison stalked by Winston Churchill. Try the famous seafood linguine. The village post office and grocery store is just next door.
