Cameron House has reopened this week after a three-year restoration project, returning with a new grand foyer and Lobby Bar and a multi-million-pound extension featuring a grand ballroom also in the works
Located within 400 acres of countryside in the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, five-star resort Cameron House has always had the benefit of sweeping views and plenty of outdoor activity opportunities – falconry experiences, pony treks, clay pigeon shooting and 4×4 off-road driving adventures, to name but a few.
The scenery may have remained the same, but the decor and amenities within the hotel have been updated, with a new lobby bar serving cocktails, champagne and the resort’s Signature Afternoon Tea. The Cameron Leisure Club and Tavern Bar have also been completely remodelled.
Cameron House’s main hotel building comprises a former baronial mansion dating back to the 17th century, known as ‘The Auld House’. It will be the setting for 14 suites complete with decor influenced by Glasgow-based Timorous Beasties, along with cashmere throws by Scotland’s second oldest family business, Johnstons of Elgin. In total, the hotel will offer 140 guest bedrooms, including 24 luxury suites – one of which is the 110-square metre Cameron Suite, a duplex penthouse with two separate terraces, a private bar and stunning views. Guests staying in both the Cameron and the Tower Suites are offered a complimentary private Champagne cruise around Loch Lomond during their stay.
Drawing on inspiration from the hotel’s new décor and reimagined suites, Johnstons of Elgin has developed a bespoke tartan for the venue – the Cameron House tartan. Its colours bring to mind the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond and heather-dappled glens, and will feature throughout the uniforms of the concierge and kilted doormen, as well as front of house, guest relations and food and beverage teams.
The wider Cameron House Resort is also home to an award-winning spa complete with a rooftop infinity pool, an 18-hole championship golf course, and a 234-berth marina. Guests can enjoy an array of water activities along the banks of the loch, including speed boat and jet-skiing trips, kayaking and katakanu excursions, paddle boarding and fresh water fishing.
The resort is currently undergoing a multi-million-pound extension, which will include a brand-new ballroom with capacity for 400 guests and an additional 68 luxurious bedrooms, bringing the resort’s total offering to 208 bedrooms, including 30 suites that will be completed and open to guests in early 2022.
During the renovation of the building, Cameron House Resort has invested significantly in a new modern steel construction that provides a high level of protection including strictly compartmentalised floors, as well as a comprehensive range of fire safety measures. While redesigning and reconstructing the hotel the developers have taken every possible measure to ensure the safety of the entire development including the existing bedroom wings being fitted with a modern fire suppression ‘water mist’ system.
