The Scotsman features the Loch Lomond Arms Hotel

Monday Dec 07 2015

We were thrilled to see a glowing review of the Loch Lomond Arms Hotel in The Scotsman. Read the full article here or see our highlights below!

To borrow a few phrases from the journalist Lynn O'Rourke, as we simply can't put it better ourselves:

"If ever you feel the need to reconnect with nature (before sitting down by an open fire with something equally warming to hand), or simply to remind yourself what a truly beautiful country we live in, head to the Loch Lomond Arms Hotel."

Her thoughts on our interiors... "from the duck-egg blue walls to the flickering fire, stags’ heads and tasteful hints of tartan, this is one carefully thought-out interior."

Our food: "Head chef Allan McLaughlin uses fresh local produce in an inventive way (the day we leave, one of his staff is out foraging for mushrooms). The menu changes regularly and we enjoyed wonderful Shetland mussels with homemade bread, roast Ayrshire beetroot salad (a particular high point for my veggie husband, although not quite as high as the hand-crafted ales). The fish and chips (fresh haddock and the most delicious thrice-cooked chips) are excellent...if you can manage dessert, the crème brûlée is quite special."

And we loved her summing up: "This is quite simply a great place to escape to. The interior is lovely, and there’s good food, friendly service and stunning scenery on the doorstep."
