The SpaceBuilt in 1864 as a Victorian sporting hostelry, Ford House has recently been renovated and converted, and today is a 3 star guest house. Located in the small village of Ford, at the southern end of Loch Awe and a couple of miles north of Kilmartin Glen, it is off the beaten track in quiet yet spectacular surroundings. We offer comfortable bed & breakfast accommodation, warm and friendly hospitality and great food all year round. We also offer art exhibitions and workshops, live music and artists’ residencies. Ford House is ideally situated, whether you want to spend a relaxing time visiting the local attractions in Kilmartin Glen, walking the local forest paths or exploring the wider area of Argyll & Loch Lomond. Interaction with Guests We can provide evening meals, for a nominal charge, served in our sun room. Guests are also welcome to join us by the open fire in our lounge. The NeighborhoodFord House is situated in the peaceful and tranquil village of Ford, in the heart of Argyll. There is no traffic noise, nor light pollution. Ford lies close to the banks of Loch Awe, world famous for its pike and trout fishing and fantastic scenery. The property has changed very little since its grand opening as a Victorian Sporting Hostelry in 1864. Its large, well-equipped kitchen and sun room dining area (which complements the facade of the original exterior - the only more recent addition to this B-listed building) make for an intimate restaurant experience that appeals to both locals and the many visitors to the area. The area is renowned for its abundance of wonderful local produce. It is also an area rich in prehistoric sites and scenic landscapes. Kilmartin Glen is possibly one of the most important Neolithic centres in Europe. It would be impossible to list here all of the sites (it is said there are about 300 archaeological sites in this area!) but the following should not be missed: The Museum of Ancient Culture, Kilmartin. Dunadd Fort. Temple Wood stone circle. Nether Largie cairns and standing stones. The mysterious rock carvings at Achnabreck. Kilmartin Glen is delimited along its southern edge by the blue ribbon of the Crinan Canal. At Crinan itself the scenery is at its most beautiful, with the colourful canal basin and magnificent views across Loch Crinan and the Sound of Jura. Knapdale Forest, extending immediately south of the canal, provides some of the finest walking in Argyll, as well as being home to the Scottish Beaver Trial (as seen recently on BBC's Springwatch). SBT rangers lead beaver walks every Tuesday evening from June onwards.  North East of Ford lies Loch Awe; at 25 miles long Scotland's longest inland loch and probably its most famous for fishing. The surrounding forests and glens are excellent for walking and wildlife spotting: red, roe and sika deer, red squirrel, otters, woodpeckers, eagles, buzzards and osprey are commonly seen. Two osprey pairs nest within ten minutes walk of Ford House.  The nature reserve at Moine Mhor is also something of a birdwatcher's paradise. The ancient bog is home to hen harriers, curlews, whinchats, stonechats and warblers, as well as roe deer and otters.  The busier town of Lochgilphead is approximately 12 miles away. There you will find a variety of shops, a supermarket, library, swimming pool and a golf course. Getting AroundBe warned: Ford is not well served by public transport. On three days of the week there is a very limited bus service between Ford and Lochgilphead. On the other four days there is nothing. Own transport is, therefore, pretty much essential. Other Things to NoteOur nightly accommodation price includes breakfast. We can offer the full Highland breakfast, the full vegetarian breakfast, or locally-sourced smoked salmon and scrambled eggs (the salmon courtesy of Murray's Smoked Products, across the road, the eggs courtesy of the nearby Auchinellan Estate's free range chickens). All of this is, of course, accompanied by à volonté tea, coffee, toast, cereals and orange juice. We can also provide evening meals (two courses plus tea/coffee) for an additional £10 each. All dietary requirements/culinary foibles catered for. Meals must be requested in advance. Please note, we have no licence to sell alcoholic beverages, but guests are, of course, welcome to bring their own, and need fear no silly corkage charge.
