This 34-room manor house on a peaceful 300-acre private island (connected by bridge to the mainland) is located near the port town of Oban. Some of the Standard lodgings can be small, so be sure to request a Deluxe Room in the Main House or one of the six Hilltop Reserve suites, which include balconies and private gardens with hot tubs. Log fires warm the comfortable lounges and the book-lined bar that opens to a sun-drenched conservatory. The gourmet dining room offers Scottish delicacies as well as nightly trolley specialties carved at the table. Other amenities include a spa with a 55-foot indoor pool, a thermal suite with a hydrotherapy pool, a gym and The Deck restaurant for light fare. The estate also encompasses sporting clays, a croquet lawn, a tennis court and a dramatic nine-hole golf course.
Lowest Rate: Standard Room, $400; Editor’s Choice: Hilltop Reserve, $630 (two-night minimum stay required from April-October).
