Our loch side hotel is situated in one of the most beautiful and unspoiled areas of Scotland's West Coast Where red deer, otters, eagles, pine martens and red squirrels are daily visitors.
Our ethos is a simple one which can be summed up in one word "care"...
... About the food we provide in our restaurants, the rooms we prepare each day, the welcome we offer and the service we provide to our customers during their stay. Kilcamb is a business where caring is central to everything we do. Through this we forge a lasting and meaningful relationship with each and every one of our customers, many of whom return year on year. Kilcamb is an extraordinary little luxury hotel in an even more extraordinary place - nothing similar is quite so special.
One of the finest Small Luxury Country House Hotels in the Highlands of Scotland, where guests travel from far and wide to sample the romantic atmosphere and exquisite food. However, back in the days of the Jacobite rebellion, Kilcamb Lodge had a very different tale to tell. This fascinating old building has witnessed much of Scotland's history unfold.
Kilcamb Lodge is purported to be one of the oldest stone houses on the West Coast of Scotland, dating back to the 1700's. The word "Kil" in Gaelic means Church but the only link with the church comes from "The List of Ancient Monuments and Historic Buildings in the Parish of Ardnamurchan 1745", where it is referred to as "Old Church and Barracks, Kilcamb, Strontian" Possibly it was used as a place of worship as well as a military stronghold. The church window on the landing here has nothing to do with this part of Kilcamb's history however. The window we see today was transported here much later, from a nearby church by a Minister who once lived at Kilcamb. He had the window fitted into the house simply because he liked it!
1745 was the time of the uprising led by Bonnie Prince Charlie and at this time it is documented that Kilcamb was a Barracks used by the military engaged in seeking out those loyal to the Prince. The Moat-like mound surrounding the frontage to Loch Sunart offers testament to this fact and was most likely dug out by the troops to offer additional protection and cover. Some 600 troops are believed to have camped here.
