If you’ve ever ventured up the West Coast of Scotland then it’s likely you’ve seen the sign for Cameron House as you pass Loch Lomond.
A fire in December 2017 closed the hotel down, but now after an extensive 3-year restoration it has re-opened and as you can see in the images here, no expense has been spared. Location wise it’s one of finest spots in the country for access to adventure activities and to the bustling city of Glasgow.
There are 140 guest bedrooms, with 24 of these being luxury suites, and all have been individually designed with exceptional attention to detail.
Andy Roger, Resort Director at Cameron House, said: “We’re enormously proud to be opening our doors once again, welcoming both our returning guests and new faces to our beautiful resort. Completely remodelled to the highest standards, guests can enjoy a truly luxurious experience while relaxing in the beautiful surroundings of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs national park.”
The hotel has a new grand foyer reception, a brand-new lobby bar featuring a grand marble-top bar that will serve the finest champagnes, cocktails and afternoon teas.
The main hotel building dates back to the 17th century and is known as The Auld House. This has 14 exquisite suites inside with enhanced luxurious touches including cashmere throws by Scotland’s second oldest family business, Johnstons of Elgin.
There’s a new fine dining restaurant too – Tamburrini & Wishart – where you can order a five-course tasting menu that changes every two weeks, and a three-course lunch menu.
The resort’s most exclusive rooms are The Cameron and The Tower Suites where you get a complimentary private Champagne cruise on Loch Lomond as part of the package.
The Cameron Suite is 110 square metres in size and is a duplex penthouse with two separate terraces and even a private bar, while The Tower Suite is in the original tower and has an opulent living area.
The remaining guestrooms have the kind of luxury touches and Scottish charm that Cameron House originally became famous for.
One of the major offerings that will be of most interest to adventure-fans is a programme of loch and land activities available at the resort called ‘Unrivalled Adventures’. These have the backing and support of the Chair of UK Sport, Dame Katherine Grainger DBE, who grew up locally near Glasgow and is one of the UK’s most celebrated sportswomen as the only British female Olympian with five medals from five consecutive games.
Dame Katherine Grainger said: ‘”Cameron House has been, and always will be one of a kind. I’m proud to be working with the team to re-introduce the hotel’s exceptional experiences against the backdrop of breathtaking Loch Lomond. Having been lucky enough to experience some of the best activities on offer, I can testify how magnificent each event is and hope people will travel near and far to enjoy the Resort and Scotland at its very best.”
On the Loch there’s speed boat and jet-skiing trips, kayaking and katakanu excursions, as well as paddle boarding, fresh water fishing, or champagne cruises onboard the impressive Celtic Warrior. There are also bike hire trails, falconry experiences, pony treks, clay pigeon shooting, 4×4 off-road driving adventures, Segway safaris, as well as a list of picturesque walks and hikes curated by the hotel’s leisure and events team.
Infinity pool views
There’s a completely new Cameron Leisure Club featuring a gym, 18m swimming pool, steam room, sauna and bubble pool. All ideal to relax in after a day of strenuous activity while giving you scenic views of the surrounding Trossachs through the floor-to-ceiling windows. For the very best views there’s an incredible rooftop infinity pool.
