Knockderry House

Shore Road, Helensburgh

Hotel information



Looking like a fairytale castle, Knockderry Country House Hotel is situated on the banks of Loch Long, one of the most magnificent sea lochs of Scotland.

Log fires, a loch-side location and castle architecture all contribute to the hotel’s considerable allure.

Family-owned and run, it is a beautiful spot in which to escape the rat race.

Cosy escape

The drawing room has magnificent woodcarvings and a cosy atmosphere.

During the colder months, it all makes for a wonderfully comfortable and relaxing environment in which to unwind after a day spent walking, sailing or exploring the local area.

h3. Various room types

There are three contemporary King rooms in the new wing. Each room has been decorated to reflect the colour palette of the surrounding countryside.

There is also a King room in the main house which has the benefit of a separate bath and walk-in shower. Furnished with king-sized beds, these rooms have views of the gardens.

The Master rooms in Knockderry are so called as they were originally the principal rooms of the old country house. Now stylishly refurbished, they provide the ultimate luxury.

There are four Master rooms in the hotel, each named after a loch. The Master rooms boast stunning views, roll top baths and walk in showers.

Guests in all rooms can look forward to ensuite bathroom facilities, luxury fabrics, flat screen plasma TV, crisp Egyptian cotton, coffee makers, sumptuous bathrobes and handmade, organic luxury toiletries by Ishgha.

Free Wi-Fi access is available throughout the hotel including all bedrooms.
