Cameron House, Loch Lomond

Cameron House is a five star De Vere hotel situated on the banks of Loch Lomond, just 25 minutes from Glasgow Airport.  I recently had the pleasure of staying overnight, which was the first time I’d stayed since its £25 million refurbishment in 2007.  The end result is a fantastic traditional hotel with a great Scottish feel to it and a property fitting of a great location on the ‘Bonnie Banks’.   The bedrooms are tastefully designed with tartan rugs and deep colours, giving it a very homely feel.  Personally, my favourite part of the hotel is the Great Scots Bar; where pictures of famous Scots (Colin Montgomerie, Sean Connery, William Wallace, Billy Connolly, etc) hang on the walls.  Spend 15 minutes wandering round the bar looking at all the pictures…….it’s an education!

Whilst it’s a difficult property to include in a typical itinerary (you wouldn’t use it as a base when playing any of Scotland’s top links courses), it will often fit in perfectly at the end of a trip.  For example, if you’re in the Highlands or St. Andrews and you’re flying home from Glasgow, it’ll be much more enjoyable to stay at Cameron House on your last night, than it would be to stay at a typical airport hotel.
