Comfy clean room, bathroom a little small for my large frame but not the end of the world! Friendly bar all be it full of locals who seemed to have an amazing Italian ancestry when Italy were playing England in the World Cup, still managed to wear a white shirt to watch them get pummeled! Good hearty breakfast in the... More

A perfect one week holiday. I was on my own and they were all very welcoming, friendly, and chatty. Excellent food, comfortable room, great location, and always ready to help. I was looked after and treated very well, I had a fabulous time every evening in the bar/restaurant, all the locals were also very welcoming. Perfect place for a short... More

Stopped here on the way North and then again on the way back South. Ideal little pub with clean and well appointed rooms. Nothing fancy or ostentatious - just "as you'd expect in a village pub B&B". Good Value for money. Didn't get the opportunity to dine here but the menu did look good. They offer "Pub Grub with Finesse"... More

Nice spacious affordable rooms over a pub, how can you go wrong. Parking outside if you're on a motor tour and located right in the middle of Doune. Sit in the Pub and have an ale, or dinner. Breakfast was the standard salt of the earth British fry up. Also, it's just a short walk over to Doune Castle (which... More

Great little place. Nice location, right in the centre of the village. The rooms have a lovely cottage-like feel and the bar is cosy but lively with a mix of locals and tourists. The breakfast was excellent, particularly the baked beans and the food in the evening is delicious, traditional Scottish fayre. Would definitely recommend if you're visiting in the... More

When staying at The Red Lion I experienced hospitality like no other. The charming staff were very welcoming and took care of our every whim. Imbibing local ales, sampling home cooked local ingredients and cavorting with the locals in the bar meant that we really got the authentic Scottish experience. The restaurant was quiet and the food was soberingly good!... More

Lovely place. Our first visit to Scotland and this started the holiday off just right. Excellent all round. Lovely welcome after a long journey. All staff very helpful. Room clean and comfortable and warm. Food was lovely and a nice atmosphere all round. Only stayed one night as on our way up to Lochinver but would recommend .

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The staff are very friendly and the food & drink were excellent. We visited that Blair Drummond wildlife park which is only a 5 minute drive away. The family room was perfect for us as it meant we could have everyone in one room.
