News and offers direct from The Crinan Hotel in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland

News from Crinan
The autumn colours have been really stunning this year - if you are able to come and stay with us soon, you might be in time to see the fantastic displays of different coloured leaves on the trees in the woods around Crinan.  And the views from the hotel can be surprising - last week we saw snow on the hills on the Isle Mull and no one can remember seeing that so early in the year!
We hope you will be interested by the updates below and the special offers which you can find via  the foot of the page. As you can see there is plenty going on, or you may prefer simply to  relax and enjoy the scenery or settle down in front of a roaring fire in one of our lounges. 
If you need more information, get in touch by phone or visit our website or click on the links in the footer of this message to join our social media world too!

Remember you will ALWAYS get guaranteed best rates by booking direct through our website.

We do hope you will visit soon  - we will offer you a warm welcome and true Highland hospitality!

Art & Music weekends - Martin Treacher at the Crinan Hotel - Autumn 2018

Art and Music Weekends at Crinan

Martin Treacher (pianist, accordionist, piper) is a versatile musical entertainer who will join Frances Macdonald to host Crinan Hotel's exciting new Art and Music Weekends.

Since 2005 Martin has been full-time resident musical entertainer for the Carnegie Club at Skibo Castle in the Scottish Highlands, acknowledged as one of the world's finest clubs/hotels.

During the Art and Music Weekends, Martin will offer a classical recital, a Noel Coward Cabaret and selections of well-known and rare Scottish songs. He will pipe guests into dinner, provide some accordion in the bar, and at the end of the evening lead guests in a memorable sing-song around the piano.

And for any guests who have always wanted to play the piano, Martin can reveal some short cuts and have them playing a melody in no time at all!

Keep an eye on the Crinan Hotel website for dates for these weekends.
