The Putechan Restaurant is at the heart of heart of the hotel and is an elegant and atmospheric setting for lunch, dinner, to meet, celebrate or simply pass the time while enjoying the dramatic scenery all around.

The restaurant and separate bar

Our menus change depending on what’s in season, and with such local supply, we can see precisely where things come from. Suppliers include the famous Loch Fyne Oysters, Barbreck Farms, Inverloch Cheese and the Oban Chocolate Factory. We buy ethical, and where we can organic and sustainable.

We believe in head to toe eating, our chefs love to use different, less fashionable cuts of meat and offal, bringing a homely feel to the restaurants food, and an interesting and contemporary dynamic to the menu.

Our bar offers a wide variety of beers, lagers, wines and spirits. It is open to the public from 12 noon to 12 pm each day with later opening till 1am for events. Food is available from 12 noon till 9 pm each day with the same menu as our restaurant. The Bar has covers for 20 diners and is split onto three areas in a similar fashion to the restaurant.

We also have a Games room with Pool table and Darts board. We also have a selection of books and games available for guests use.

The whisky

Campbeltown is one of the four recognised whisky producing regions in Scotland. Today there are three distilleries – Springbank, Glen Scotia and Glen Gyle. Springbank is by far and away the most successful and the distillery produces three distinct types of whisky (the only two other distilleries to produce more than one are Loch Lomond and Tobermory).

Campbeltown may only host three distilleries today, but there were no few than 37 whisky distilleries established there in the 19th century, earning it the coveted title of “whisky capital of the world”.

With a locale so steeped in whisky history, you can imagine that the Putechan will host an extensive and eclectic whisky collection. What better way to enjoy a dram than by watching the sun setting over the islands and the Atlantic surf crashing onto our pebble beach.

We are ideally located for many Argyll distilleries and for travel to the Isles, with crossings from nearby ferry terminals. We can help with advice and with organising your whisky tasting tour.

Our furniture

The owners of the hotel have a keen interest in arts and crafts and commissioned a stunning variety of bespoke tables from Patrick Baxter of Lanarkshire Hardwooods. Patrick is a master craftsman who has designed tables from salted beach, oak, cherry wood, burr poplar, horse chestnut, elm, birch and holly. The tables can be linked together to provide seating for larger groups set on a stunning piece of wood. The window ledges throughout the main public areas are Yew and were made by Colin McCartney, one of the hotel’s owners. The Main Reception desk was designed and built by Colin.
