“lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2011

I am amazed to have read the reviews as we could not have found a more reasonable priced cafe with delicious food or kinder people.The watersports is fantastic.I think that some people expect the world for a tesco price.We found the baking amazing and the lady even gave my children a bag of bird food to feed the ducks.Smashing place,can't fault it.

“Not what it used to be”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2011

We have visited Loch Earn for nearly 20 years both with, and without the children, and have been into the Watersports Centre many times. Until a few years ago it was run by Neil and others and could provide a wide range of snacks and meals throughout the day at reasonable prices. In recent years those running it have changed, firstly by people who banned us taking the dog in, and now by ones who, as in a previous review, 'charge hotel prices for greasy spoon food'.

We called this year with our youngest son (21) who had flown up to join us for a few days.

I went for the cheapest thing on the menu, jacket potato (£5.50!) when it came it was 2 potatoes freshly (!) microwaved, now pretty cold and covered in coleslaw - at least that is what was called. My wife could not have her cheese toastie as the sandwich toaster had just failed and my son's scampi must have been caught from somewhere suffering an oil slick. Cost nearly £25 - the only time we went that week.

Not impressed with the language from one female member of staff to another.

Also they wanted £10 to launch my 4HP boat - 100% increase from before, launched it from the loch side, savings paid for petrol for the week!

If you want a snack near here go up Glen Ogle (north) to the mobile snack bar. This is open every day except Tuesday and Wednesday, run by a super couple who charge very reasonable prices and provide service with a smile every time! - check out http://www.robroycountry.com/index.php/Details/Glenogle-Snax-Killin.htm?Itemid=0

Otherwise Loch Earn is well worth a visit - we are booked for 3 weeks self catering for 2012.

“Beautiful location - extremely rude staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

We went for as part of a groupon deal for watersports - had paid £30 each for 2 hours activities - when we arrived there was no one there to help us - we had to wait around for ages and then after our session was meant to have started we were eventually given wetsuits. Once we were changed and almost in the water someone decided to tell us that the activities we were meant to be doing were broken and we could get a refund. (after travelling for two hours to get there and after letting us get changed we were not impressed!!!) We did enjoy ourselves but were shocked by lack of organisation and rudeness one member of staff - asked us if we were enjoying ourselves and then walked away whilst we were replying to him!

Would definately go back to Loch Earn for watersports but would avoid this company again!

“What a lovely place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2011

My children and I have just stopped off at the watersports centre and cannot believe the improvements from last year. We didn't plan any sports but could not resist the zorbing and a bannana ride. A five minute stop for a drink ended up as the rest of the day with a lovely meal and too many cakes!
