I stayed at this famous hostelry for one night while walking part of the Southern Upland Way. I don't think I have ever stayed anywhere as friendly. The owner sets the tone which soon spreads to the guests. I observe that reviewers divide between those who love this remote hotel as it is and those who would rather have found something more like a Premier Inn. I am firmly in the first camp.

Had a lovely stay at Tibbie Shiels Inn during May and was lucky enough to discover a rare insectivorous plant nearby called Butterwort in two locations. It’s a small plant with a basal array of vivid, sticky, green leaves which has adapted to living in a nutrient-poor environment by trapping small insects and then rolling up its leaves around them and digesting them. It has a small but pretty bell-shaped blue flower and can be found near the top of the Captains Trail on the left beside the ditch before you reach the forest, and beside the smaller Loch Lowes growing on the shore just past the wooden bridge. Lovely place!

Room Tip: Ask for the Loch room

Tibbie Shiels is in a stunning location, there are some good points but it us obvious that this Inn requires an awful lot of investment to bring it up it it's price of £45 per night. Plus points- beds v comfy breakfast plentiful. However we shared a family room v small with bunks and next door bathroom no shower, intermittent water pressure. Not v clean and v old fittings. Milk so out of date when we opened it the whole room stunk. Food and drinks are all served with no view of the loch as the Conservatory/Dining Room was full of drum kits and stuff and not a place you could sit. It is a real shame that an Inn in such a perfect location is so poor. More suited to £25 per night than £45

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the loch. Our only view of the loch was from the loo

We stayed on the campsite.
Beautiful location at st Mary's loch.
Made to feel very welcome by the owner Alistair. Relaxed and laid back atmosphere and surroundings!
Nice wee bar with plenty of laughs, jam on the guitars, drinks and pub grub.
Highly recommend.

Myself and a friend have just spent the weekend here, it's not a 5 star resort but we were made to feel very welcome, the place is in need of a little tlc but the family atmosphere was lovely, the owner had his parents staying who were the nicest people you could wish to meet. The evening meal was very nice as was the breakfast, a very pleasant family pub/ b&b, would like to return when they have a gig on.
