Local activities include boat trips and horse riding. Our reception staff are happy to help with information and bookings. There are walks strenuous or gentle, but equally spectacular and Argyll coastal leisurely drives. Sightseeing includes mountains and lochs, highlands and islands, you may even see a seal off the shore if you are lucky. The Highland Cattle will be grazing in the field in front of the hotel and happy, as always, for a pat on the head, or why not pop down to the pond and say hello to the ducks for those that don’t want to venture too far!
Arrive at leisure and settle in.
Our Chartroom II Bar and Bistro is open all day for delicious meals and refreshments. Unwind with a welcome drink and a slice of Christmas cake in front of the lounge fire. The Asknish Bay Restaurant greets you in the evening with a sumptuous festive dinner from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. Booking a dining time in advance is advisable. Our local church has a midnight service. Join us for minced pies and mulled wine on return.
A Merry Christmas to all!
A continental breakfast will be served between 8.30am and 10.00am in the Asknish Bay Restaurant to give you time to open your stockings! Lunch will be served between 12.30pm and 2.30pm for residents and non-residents. Details of Christmas day church services locally are available at reception. From about 12.30pm, complimentary cocktails or something soft, accompanied by our own canapés, will be served in the Cocktail Lounge, giving guests ample opportunity to peruse the Christmas Day Luncheon menu at their leisure.
Christmas luncheon is a mouth-watering six course traditional feast with all the trimmings including our own Christmas puddings, mince pies and chocolates. An interesting alternative choice for those that don’t like traditional fare will also be offered using the best local ingredients. A fine Scottish cheese board and sandwiches will be available in the lounge from 8.00pm for those who get the nibbles later on.
