Scottish Highland Hotel - Glenfinnan House Hotel
Our weekly Thursday music sessions
start again from the 2nd April 2015
A rolling lawn meets the shore of Loch Shiel where Glenfinnan House Hotel stands in its unique position across the bay from the National Trust for Scotland monument to Prince Charles Edward Stuart (a.k.a. Bonnie Prince Charlie). Beyond the monument Ben Nevis is visible, the UK's highest mountain, while a 10-minute walk away through the red deer dotted Glenfinnan Estate, is the famous Glenfinnan viaduct railway bridge which was used in scenes from various Harry Potter films. This Scottish country house is a fine stone mansion dating from 1755. For more details see history of Glenfinnan House. Attractive public rooms include a comfortable drawing room, a beautifully appointed dining room and a welcoming bar where traditional music is often heard. Manja and Duncan Gibson are the resident managers – and extremely hospitable hosts – who will welcome you into the delightful hall, where a log fire blazes. Along pine-panelled walls hang an atmospheric collection of paintings, most with a Jacobite theme, including an impressive portrayal of the 1745 Jacobite Rising at Glenfinnan. (courtesy of the 1745 Association). The surrounding scenery is glorious and Glenfinnan House is a perfect venue for breaks, weddings, various functions... or even just a quiet retreat. From the moment of your arrival every effort is made to ensure your wellbeing and enjoyment.
