Here at Loch Melfort Hotel community is at the heart of everything we do.  

We work with local suppliers wherever possible, host community events and support local businesses as much as possible including:

  • Supporting local artists by displaying their works throughout the hotel for sale.
  • We are active members of the community offering support wherever possible for local businesses, organisations and events by advertising on our social media and around the hotel.
  • We offer free rooms for disabled people and their carers via Respitality Scotland.
  • We donate old furniture to local charities.
  • We give discounts to local customers and companies.
  • We even recently opened up the hotel when closed for a local funeral.
  • We regularly give donations to the village hall parish lunch and Christmas raffles, local schools raffles (Rockfield Primary and Kilninver Primary), local Charity groups, Craignish Boat club raffles, Craignish village hall fundraisers, Kilmartin Museum fundraisers – the list goes on and on!
  • We are involved in and donors to the Native Oyster Network and Seawilding’s local native oyster regeneration project at Loch Craignish. We sponsor an Oyster Hoister!

NTS Arduaine Gardens

Loch Melfort Hotel and NTS Arduaine Gardens have a long-standing relationship. We have been supporting the gardens for over 12 years!

The gardens are understandably a highlight of the stay for a lot of our guests and we have keys for hotel guests to access the garden out of hours for an unforgettable experience.

We give out information and encourage our guests to support the gardens.

We founded and continue to organise, run and be avid members of ‘Arduaine Friends’ membership committee and are readily involved with fundraising, events, social media and raising awareness, and even saved the Gardens from closure in 2009!

Locals Card

We have also launched a Locals Card, which offers a 10% discount on food and drinks and 20% off accommodation for people who live within a 20 mile radius of the hotel.
