Self-Drive Breaks

Self-drive breaks are perfect for guests looking to escape on their own and follow their own itinerary. All breaks include accommodation with breakfast and evening meal followed by night time entertainment.

Our breaks are priced per room with two adults sharing. We are able to offer these deals when we have space available from our coach tour holidays. We release any unsold rooms for self-drive breaks four weeks in advance.

Ardgartan Hotel

Nestled in a dramatic woodland glen and overlooked by the Arrochar Alps, the Ardgartan Hotel offers forest walks or time to simply relax and contemplate the spectacular views. The impressive glass fronted foyer provides a relaxed space with panoramic views of Loch Long and an opportunity to soak up the scenery whilst the function room holds nightly entertainment for those who enjoy a dance.


All self-drive breaks include: accommodation, breakfast and evening meal followed by night time entertainment.


Amenities:

Enjoy the local surroundings and explore the deep woodland forests with a stroll along Croe Water. Alternatively, there are many way-marked trails to guide keen walkers through the hills, or for the adventurous there are plenty of summits to be conquered within the Arrochar Alps. Ardgartan’s grounds are particularly rich in wildlife and the waters outside the hotel are often home to seals, otters and occasionally bottlenose dolphins.

So much of Scotland is still inaccessible by road but there are many well marked trails around Ardgartan and neighbouring Loch Lomond. Jump on the local bus to Tarbet where cycle hire is available from the pier. Speak to hotel reception for bus and ferry timetables.

The Loch Achray Hotel is situated in the heart of the Trossachs, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The hotel is serenely set among woodland on the shores of Loch Achray and is overlooked by the towering Ben Venue. Wildlife abounds in the forest and surrounding area but the Trossachs are also steeped in history and have hosted many famous visitors over the years.

Amenities:

The serene location of Loch Achray Hotel offers a varied selection of walks, from a stroll around the Loch to conquering the surrounding peaks. Ben A’an is one of the most prominent landmarks in the Trossachs and the views from the summit are out of all proportion for its modest height of just 1,500ft. Ben Venue is a more challenging peak but rewards with views that stretch as far as the Crianlarich Munros, Ben Lomond and the Arrochar Alps.

Loch Achray lies in the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and the countryside surrounding the hotel hosts a wealth of wildlife and beautiful forests.
