For starters it offers a 14 metre pool, gym, dance studio and squash court, and if that’s not enough it’s also within perfect distance of the West Highland Way boasting plenty of outdoor activities to keep the athlete in you energised.

    After all that excitement what better way to relax those weary legs than in the hotels own Moroccan themed Haven Spa complete with sauna, steam room and spa bath. And, if you want any beauty treatments all you have to do is ask!

    Volker Steinnemann, operations director of the Best Western Buchanan Arms Hotel and Spa says, “We are very pleased to be joining such a proactive and modern marketing group of hotels. Best Western allows us to have the best of both worlds by maintaining ownership and management with the additional benefits a global brand brings.”
