Booking is simple, please just send an enquiry and we will get in touch. However if you have any questions please read through answers to our most commonly asked questions and if your answer is not there do contact us.

My family age ranges from 2 to 82, is Rhumhor suitable?
Yes Rhumhor is eminently suitable for young, old and those in-between. On the ground floor we have a bedroom and shower room which is ideal for those who don’t fancy the stairs. A family favourite is of course the large family room where everyone can sit and socialise, enjoy the pool table, watch a film or have a BBQ on the decking. For times when certain members would prefer a little quiet time there is our peaceful drawing room with its stunning loch views or the bright half landing with its comfortable reading area. There is great family entertainment at the local leisure park, with entertainment for all ranges, just ask us for more details.

Can we bring our dog?
Yes, please contact us to discuss. Your dog will be very welcome and it is an amazing area for walks. We will ask that you agree to keep your dog to the ground floor, out of all bedrooms, off furniture, and never leave him or her in the house on their own. A £20 pet supplement will be due with the balance.

There is a small Costcutter grocery store 4 miles down the road near Lochgoilhead and also Lochgoilhead post office has a good local store inside. There is a large Waitrose at Helensburgh.  There are two smaller supermarkets, a deli and brewery in Inveraray.

How do we collect and return the keys?
The owners will contact you with useful pre-arrival information and confirmation of the arrival and departure process in the run up to your stay at Rhumhor. You will be provided with their contact details should you need any help during your stay.

Is there a local taxi service?
Yes there is a fully licensed taxi that operates out of Lochgoilhead.

Can we book a short break?
