Less than a hours leisurely drive from Glasgow City centre, probably 40 mins from the airport, we went via Loch Lomond. Arrived at the hotel slightly early than planned, but the friendly staff sorted our bags and showed us to Room 1 which was beautiful and overlooked Loch Long, the shoreline is accessible directly across from the hotel. Lovely bathroom with a view of the next door neighbours castle walls. Lunch was delicious. Dining room is oak panelled and overlooks the Loch towards a dramatic backdrop of wild mountains. Nice lounge and siting rooms decorated to a good tasteful standard. Small book and DVD library free to guests. Our evening meals from the fine dining menu was most excellent using fresh local produce ; we ate out only once during our three day stay only when we went off exploring into the mountains. Sumptuous breakfasts; my favourite was the smoked local haddock. Of note the young waitress staff were very polite, clean and smartly dressed. Friendly house maids. The young waiter Nacho was very helpful and ensured every whim including minor changes or additions to our food choice was requested from the chef- who always surpasses our requests. Good wine menu and of course a selection of whisky ! The owners Beth and Murdo were very nice and found time to make all guests including ourselves welcome. We have already recommended this hotel to family, and will likely go there again. Three days well spent; flying time from Glasgow to East Midlands less than an hour !
