Crinan's 'Sleep with the Art' is a unique experience, devised by Frances Macdonald and her son Ross Ryan.
A selection of artists have each had one of the hotel’s bedrooms devoted to their work. Several paintings of that particular artist are hung in the chosen room. With each room named after the artist, guests will be able to enjoy a range of the artist's work during their stay at Crinan Hotel.
For many years Crinan has been an inspiration to visiting artists. The scenery and views are spectacular - the Crinan Hotel was awarded the Luxury Sea View Hotel of the Year by the Luxury Travel Guide in 2018. Studio space is available at the hotel and help is on hand from the resident artists.
Throughout the seasons the Crinan Gallery at the Crinan Hotel mounts a number of exhibitions featuring local and prominent Scottish artists. Full details can be found on the Crinan Gallery Exhibitions page.
The Crinan Hotel is renowned as a Gallery venue on Scotland's west coast. Owner Frances Macdonald and her son Ross Ryan are well established Scottish contemporary artists and they both exhibit at the Crinan Gallery regularly.
Works by Frances are in several important private collections at home and abroad as well as corporate collections including Fleming's Scottish Collection. Paintings by Frances Macdonald can be viewed at her dedicated web site - www.francesmacdonald.co.uk. Frances is represented in Scotland by The Scottish Gallery and in London by The Portland Gallery.
Ross Ryan studied at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen from 1993 - 1997. From his home in Crinan, Argyll Ross has travelled worldwide painting and sketching. Recent trips include the Galapagos Islands, Germany and the Finnish Arctic Circle. Examples of Ross's work can be seen at The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh.
