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.
After "kidnapping" his bride, the groom would take her and go into hiding. By the time the bride's family tracked them down them, the bride would probably already be pregnant! A "bride price" would then be negotiated. An earlier source is the early Jewish custom of the bride and groom spending a week together alone immediately after the marriage feast. The earliest reference to this practice is Jacob's marriages to Leah and Rachel.
