We have recently returned from Beautiful Scotland tour with National. The Claymore hotel is in a beautiful location overlooking Loch Long with stunning views especially in the mild autumn weather. Whilst the hotel is not 5 star, it is clean,comfortable with friendly and obliging staff who will go out of their way to keep their customers happy. All the staff were extremely kind during our 5 day stay and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts and evening meals provided a good choice of foods to choose from to meet most customers palettes. Our package included 4 drinks per person daily from the bar service which we thought was marvellous and saved us a lot of additional expense. In addition a traditional cream tea was served mid week, again at no additional expense. Entertainment was provided each evening which was good. Trips to Callander, The Trossachs, Inverary and Oban were well worth the visit but on the optional day we took a long walk along Loch Long and then a light lunch in the nearby Village Inn which is highly recommended for good pub food and selection of real ales. We will definitely book more of these breaks next year as thoroughly enjoyable. The only negative point to make sadly was the attitude of our driver, Paul, who needed full training in customer care and knowledge of the places we visited. Perhaps he was not used to the route or area but was rather rude to us on a number of occasions.
