I've dined at the Coylet on a number of occasions over the past few years, under at least two different managements, but most recently in early January 2014. It's a grand old country inn with bags of atmosphere (a fine old bar which is separate from the restaurant area, real fires and a lot of exposed wooden beams), situated in very scenic surroundings right on the shores of Loch Eck. There is plenty of parking, although some care is required when getting on and off the busy A815 road. If staying in one of the nearby lodges or caravan parks around the shores of Loch Eck, then it is walkable in the summer, although a taxi is a sounder option in the winter (we used "George's taxis" in Dunoon - a very friendly chap in a splendid Panama hat!). The food is fairly standard pub or bistro-type fare: not a huge or particularly fancy menu, but it was fresh, tasty and very nicely presented, and all of us enjoyed what we had. The steaks were great (although a couple of our number found the accompanying chips slightly on the the soggy side...). There was a surprisingly fine wine list, and the wine was quite reasonably priced, too. Desserts were good, and the cheese board definitely didn't disappoint.
