Royaume-Uni / Argyll / Écosse

Originally called New Inverawe, Ardanaiseig was built for Colonel James Archibald Campbell of Clan Campbell in 1834 by renowned Scottish architect William Burn. Burn was a prolific architect credited with a number of Edinburgh’s finest 19th century buildings, along with over 600 manor houses built or remodeled for the Scottish gentry. He is considered the founder of the Scottish Baronial style. When Colonel Campbell died in 1879, New Inverawe was sold to a mining magnate from Cumberland, Mr John Ainsworth. The new owner renamed the property Ardanaiseig, the local Gaelic name for the point area on which the house was located. Meaning “The point by the ferry”, the origins of this name are obscure. Just a stone’s throw from the banks of Loch Awe, the hotel gives you a stunning base from which to experience the full beauty of the Highlands.
