We went selfdrive to Scotland , looking back we should of gone by coach as cheaper seeing as we had over five hour journey . But god was it worth it ,the building ,the views, the weather was great that's before we went in Hotel .
We stayed in room 33 the new build , I had asked for a loch view when booking as that was a view! Double bed + single , lovely furniture and shower room ....big . We are only in our 40s so knew we would be the youngsters but everyone were lovely.
The staff are nice , helpful nothing to much trouble for them . Food excellent and great choice , must say jeans tighter now though.
Entertainment every night , dancing etc or rooms for board games or just quite for reading.
Difficult to get a mobile signal but full signal in the middle of the loch whilst fishing on a boat which was amusing ,even though stung by a bee after only 10 mins on it . Also at night the midges were a huge nuisance and in droves I was bitten a lot ' still scratching!
We had a four night break and for what we paid was incredible DBB ...£245 pure luxury and peace in a beautiful place .
A must is Oban great fishing town and a walk to the loch castle , views everywhere are to die for . We are Wales freaks so pleased with the mountains lakes and openess . Can not get used to all your things with oats in though even my rice crispies , leave alone there meant to snap crackle and pop :)
Be prepared to drive a lot or walk a distance , post office cum shop five mins down the road and that's it so bring your own goddies as not great choice .
Oh and wi fi only in reception so you have to sit there , lucky if you get a signal in your room .
Gretna green totally ruined by turning it into yet another shopping arcade , not in the least romantic . Loch awe was for us!
