West Loch Hotel

Campbeltown Road, Tarbert

Hotel information


5 out of 5 stars


A former coaching hotel which dates back to around 1780, The West Loch is now a modern hotel and restaurant offering fresh food, comfortable rooms and wonderful views over West Loch Tarbert.

Set at the top of the spectacular Kintyre Peninsula, West Loch Hotel is a perfect base from which to explore Kintyre itself, the islands of Arran, Islay, Gigha, and Jura and miles of stunning coastline in this beautiful part of Scotland.

Local produce

The kitchen brigade are proud to use seasonal fish, game and vegetables sourced from trusted, local suppliers and producers.

Typical main courses might be the locally smoked haddock, prawns, spinach and potato rosti with a lemon and dill cream or the venison and Oban ale pie, served with poached potatoes and vegetables.

As you would expect from a hotel on the Malt Whisky Trail, the cosy and rustic lounge bar serves over 50 single malts. But as craft gins are also booming in Scotland, the bar showcases over 20 from the 11 surrounding islands, including Arran and Tiree. Or why not treat yourself to a cocktail made from Kintyre or Kintyre Pink gin?

See & do

West Loch Hotel is perfect for exploring this beautiful region. To the West, the coast is rugged with some glorious beaches and crashing surf from the blue Atlantic.

West Loch Tarbert, from where the ferry for Islay and Jura departs, has been described as Scotland’s most beautiful sea loch, while the tiny island of Gigha is lush, fertile and relaxing.

The soft airs of Argyll benefit local gardeners and there is a big choice of gardens to visit, from sheltered woodlands at Achamore House in Gigha, to the rhododendron rich gardens at Arduaine and Crarae.

Wildlife is abundant, and the best way to appreciate it is to walk or cycle on the many quiet roads and tracks, or take a walk through the excellent nature reserve at Moine Mhor, near Crinan.
