Innovative Crinan – Seafood Bar & Art Gallery with Rooms

By | Apr 4, 2011

A shrewd analysis of market trends can often give entrepreneurs a head start when it comes to innovative ideas. At the Crinan Hotel some interesting developments are taking place which Nick and Frances Ryan hope will continue to maintain Crinan’s position as one of Argyll’s most interesting destinations.

In February the Crinan Seafood Bar was launched with great acclaim from foodies, critics and local diners. For many years Crinan as been synonymous with the freshest of seafoods and the new Seafood Bar sets out to relaunch Crinan’s reputation as one of the best places for seafood on Scotland’s west coast.

Reflecting Crinan’s pride in their fresh seafood the new menu includes Loch Crinan Seafood Stew, Pan Seared Loch Crinan Scallops, Steamed Loch Etive Mussels  and Risotto of West Coast Crab.

Not content with launching a new seafood bar, Crinan have also started marketing the hotel as an ‘Art Gallery with Rooms’. Reflecting the success of the regular art exhibitions being held at Crinan, the hotel is being promoted as a Gallery venue with accommodation. Recent shows (and art sales) included Gordon Mitchell, Glen Scouller, Ross Ryan, and Frances Macdonald

In a market saturated with good 3 and 4 star hotels these changes could help consolidate Crinan’s reputation as a fascinating travel destination combining of Scotland’s finest contemporary art, the freshest of Scottish seafood, vibrant canal life, walks, wonderful landscapes …. as well a few delightful rooms with sea views.
