Cameron House Hotel – Weekend in bonny Scotland

Hello readers!!

I mentioned on our Instagram a couple of weeks ago that I would soon be blogging about my stay at Cameron House, Loch Lomond.  The hotel was beautiful – a perfect weekend getaway in Scotland.  It is located right on Loch Lomond, with stunning views and cosy interiors.  The dark colours and mixture of tartans give the hotel a relaxing atmosphere.  Here is the room.  The bed was amazingly comfortable and we had a view of the loch.  It definitely was a struggle getting out of bed! (It is a good job I had nothing to get up for but the delicious breakfast).

The Great Scots Bar, which you can see above, served a great selection of drinks and meals during the day.  The bar had large comfortable sofas which we sunk in to (with a drink in hand) and took in the gorgeous snowy view whilst we were cosy indoors.  We went here both nights and made a good attempt at making our way through the yummy cocktail list!!  I can definitely recommend the Cameron House Martini – a delicious martini with hints of apple and elderflower.  We ate there once for lunch.  I chose the “Fisherman’s Basket” – haddock goujons, scampi and fries.  Washed down with a glass of prosecco.  It was delicious.

In the evening we had dinner the Cameron Grill.  For starter I had the selection of Scottish salmons which you can see below.  It was beautifully presented and tasted even better than it looks!  It was served with homemade blinis which were so yummy!  For main course I had scallops served with champ potato, wilted spinach and tomato butter sauce.  Unfortunately for you, when it arrived my priorities were eating rather than taking a photo so I can’t share with you how delicious it looked!  But, you can take my word.

With the relaxing atmosphere of the hotel, the swimming pool, gym, and choice of restaurants I could have stayed in the hotel the whole time.  Thankfully the Scottish weather was on our side, so we did venture outside and had a small walk next to the Loch.  It was icy cold but the sun was shining beautifully.

In the early evening we went to the Carrick Spa.  It is a couple of miles from the hotel but the hotel can help you with transport.  The Carrick Spa has an outdoor hot tub on the roof.  We were in there as the sun went down, and we were looking at the beautiful snowy hills.  It was up there in one of the best things I have ever experienced!

 Overall, our stay Cameron House hotel was one to remember!  I couldn’t fault the hotel in any way.  It was relaxing, with good food and drink – what more could you want?  The Scottish snowy and sunny weather definitely helped make it that little bit more special!
