Scottish Thistle Awards success
A hotel on the banks of Loch Long has been recognised at the Scottish Thistle tourism awards.
Knockderry House in Cove was awarded the Best Eating Experience accolade at the regional finals for the west, which took place on Thursday November 29 at Oran Mor in Glasgow.
The 15-bedroom hotel and restaurant was praised by judges for its focus on food provenance and for offering a ‘very warm, welcoming and authentic quality Scottish experience’ for guests. The business was also commended for its collaboration with local businesses, including Cruise Loch Lomond and Glengoyne Distillery.
Owners Beth and Murdo MacLeod said: ‘At Knockderry the entire team work in harmony to deliver the complete experience for our guests. Often going the extra mile to exceed expectations. It is therefore fitting and particularly pleasurable for us to achieve recognition as Best Eating Experience.’
