Our first stop-over on our touring holiday in Scotland, this is a breathtaking location and is approximately five hours travel from South Yorkshire. The hotel is well situated looking down onto the loch which is just over the road. The prorietors are welcoming , and our room was well decorated and clean, with a large en-suite to a good standard. The dining room is very atmospheric and was quite busy when we came down for dinner. Food was very good with large portions, and the crested crockery is a very nice touch. Breakfast was excellent with the traditional options of potato scone and black pudding. There is a large car park to the front which overlooks the loch. In the afternoon we took the Glen Ogle trail up the Glen, which is on the old railway line. Gaining access to the formation is a major climb, since the railway was well up the side of the Glen, but once up there, the walk is easy with panoramic views to the east and south, where snow was still on the mountain tops. The route is also used as a cycle trail and as the weather picked up, a few more cycles appeared. There are two lovely old viaducts towards the top of the Glen, and a large number of streams cascade down from the hillsides. A fantastic walk. This Hotel would make a good base for touring the area.
