Great location, fabulous food, friendly staff!
This was a great place to spend our last night touring Scotland. The food was fantastic, by far the best meal we’d had on the trip. We stayed in one of the garden chalets over looking the loch. It’s a little compact but has everything you need and great soundproofing. The shower was also the best we’d had by miles for good water pressure and at last a bath towel big enough to wrap around your entire body! My only small observation would be that the sofa bed in the lounge area isn’t very comfortable to sit for a long time, so not sure what it would be like to sleep on. Also the walls in both rooms were badly scuffed and marked which if given a fresh coat of paint would give a better first impression. As with all the places we stayed in, they are very short staffed. So be patient and prepared for a little wait to be served, as they are doing the best that they can. All in all though this was a great ending to our fabulous tour of beautiful Scotland. We would definitely return.

A very pleasant overnight break of journey.
Lovely surroundings, with our garden suite room overlooking the loch. The staff were very welcoming and service was excellent, with the food matching that too. Added to the list of places we would like to return to (maybe by train: the station is just over the road, but you would not know it unless you looked closely).

A fantastic inn, an absolute treat. We stayed in one of the rooms at the back of the Inn, above the bar / restaurant, no view, but very spacious and comfortable. Extremely quiet too, we had completely undisturbed sleep. Restaurant served excellent food and the bar was well stocked. Brilliant, attentive and friendly service throughout the stay. Free parking. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
