Just dropped in for coffee. One of my favourite small hotels. The food has always been superb and the new menu looks fabulous. Jamie and his team as attentive, professional and friendly as ever!

We spent a week in the Trossachs exploring and saw endless beautiful places, at a good time of year due to the trees turning lovely colours but the Lake of Menteith was breathtakingly lovely. Peaceful and good for walking nearby. We visited Inchmahome Priory too,...More

When visiting, don't miss the opportunity of travelling on the ferry to the priory ruins on the island.

Ferry sits 12 people. Get there early as the last ferry is 4:15pm. The Priory is good. Read the signs and see the Abbey and ruins. Take a walk around the island. Last ferry leaves island at 5pm. Enjoy it!

A pleasant spot in lovely scenery, being Scotland's only lake. Unfortunately no ferry available so we couldn't visit the priory. Maybe next time!

Rowed by the ferryman across the lake to the Island of Inchmahome on a cold September morning, we watched the anglers (mostly) fly fishing for trout. We used a 'Visit Scotland' tourist pass, otherwise we might not have bothered which would have been a pity....More

You will need to rent a canoe from next to priory launch. I'd take the ferry that Historic Scotland supplies you. Parking is free next to Historic Scotland priory place...
