The Glencoe Inn has been reopened to guests by Crerar Hotels, following a refurbishment involving an investment of more than £500,000.

Crerar Hotels declared that the investment in bedrooms, food and drink offerings and outdoor areas had transformed the hotel “into the ultimate boutique accommodation experience at the heart of the world-famous glen”.

All 15 bespoke bedrooms and bathrooms have been fully refurbished.

Crerar declared that, as well as offering a “thermal experience” with a hot tub and sauna, the outdoor Hidden Garden spa “offers one of the country’s most awe-inspiring backdrops”.

Chris Wayne-Wills, chief executive of Crerar Hotels said: “We’re thrilled on two counts – re-opening our doors to welcome guests and showcasing the results of an outstanding refurbishment.

“Despite the challenges of the past year, we have created a home from home experience against the backdrop of one of Scotland’s most famous landscapes – exactly what we were determined to do when the investment was secured."

The Glencoe Inn’s food and drink offering has been upgraded as part of the investment.

The Gathering bar and grill will continue to serve Scottish steaks and burgers alongside its renowned fish suppers. A new Steak & Lobster Bistro menu meanwhile features native, grass-fed Scottish beef and venison from the Crerar Home Farm alongside Scottish seafood from the surrounding lochs.

Red Shed Pizzas will make its debut at the hotel in summer, "bringing a taste of Italy to the West Highlands" with rustic pizzas made with hybrid yeast and sourdough served fresh from a new outdoor wood-fired oven.
