Our History

Discover a unique country inn established in 1786 on the Isle of Bute. Simon and Maria Tettmar bought Kingarth Hotel in October 1997 and developed its potential to benefit both local guests and tourists.

Smiddy Bar

Go beyond Kingarth Hotel to experience Smiddy Bar. We opened the bar on 28 July 2001 following an extensive building conversion project. Our old blacksmith’s barn which was once run as part of the hotel was converted to accommodate the new bar.

Play or relax in the heart of our property. Our versatile Smiddy Bar offers you the perfect place to delight in a range of activities, including:

  • Pool nights
  • Darts nights
  • Summertime weddings
  • Al fresco dining
