2023 marks the 200th anniversary of Cameron House and to celebrate, the iconic hotel has announced it will be hosting a year-long programme of events, initiatives, and experiences for guests.
The year-long program will feature experiences that pay homage to the resort’s history and the people who have contributed to its success.. Some highlights include an exclusive competition for guests to submit their favorite memories from previous stays, a limited-time offer for 200 of the resort’s stylish rooms at £200 each, the launch of the first-ever newspaper “The Cameron,” a ‘Celebration Package’ in partnership with ROX Jewellers, and various culinary offerings and events.
Whilst the luxury property opened as a hotel in 1990, the baronial estate’s history dates back to the 15th century. It was in 1823, however, under the ownership of the Smolletts, a local family of shipbuilders and artists, when plans were finalised for extensive renovations to take place, that would transform the home into a grand baronial mansion, known today as Cameron House hotel.
Over the last two centuries, Cameron House has heralded a new era for Scottish hospitality, becoming a popular destination for locals, travellers, royals and political stalwarts. During the 1900s, both Sir Winston Churchill and Empress Eugenie of France visited, and in the 1970s, it was home to a popular bear park for more than 20 years.
Allan Wilson, General Manager at Cameron House, commented on the upcoming celebrations, saying, “We have a fantastic history on the banks of Loch Lomond, and it has been remarkable to revisit the milestones from the last two centuries and more, as we celebrate the hotel’s 200th anniversary.”
Wilson added, “We are extremely fortunate to operate in one of the country’s most scenic landscapes, so full of interesting people and stories.
“Our team are at the heart of the resort, and so as well as putting on events for our guests, this year will also be a celebration of current and former Clan Cameron members who have made the resort such a special place. We’re really looking forward to welcoming visitors from all over the world to share this year with us.”
