Cairnbaan Hotel

An historic hotel in a deligfhtful canal setting serving excellent seafood and Scottish cuisine.

The Cairnbaan Hotel hotel is located at Lock 5 on the Crinan Canal. The hotel was originally built some 200 years ago to serve the fishermen and steam puffers traveling along the Crinan Canal. There is a nautical feel to the hotel restaurant where the emphasis is on cooking and serving fresh caught West Coast seafood as well as traditional and contemporary Scottish fare. The Cairnbaan’s home-made puddings will appeal to hearty seafaring appetites.
