Ardanaiseig Hotel :-
In a remote place of quiet tranquility and almost surreal natural beauty, where the slopes of Ben Cruachan fall into the clear waters of Loch Awe, there is a small, luxurious and wildly romantic old country house hotel. It sits alone overlooking the mysterious islands and crannogs of the loch in deeply wooded gardens teemimg with wildlife…its Ardanaiseig Hotel.
As civilizations developed, political, military, and economic ties became very important to prominent families and clans. Arranged marriages were a means of cementing ties between families, middle class family businesses, and countries. A man's daughters, who were considered to be his property in those days, provided a means of securing needed alliances with other families. Thus dowries were introduced as a means attracting and securing the most beneficial family alliances possible.
