Stayed in the nice and spacious chalet. Very clean, good size kitchen dinning area with all that you need, great amenities. The staff was very helpful. We will definitely go back. Good place as base for traveling. Nice ski resorts at around 1 hour drive.

Stayed here for a night during a trip around Scotland. Owner David was very knowledgeable, especially on his Whisky, which he had a good selection of. Nice rooms, great amenities, breakfast was nice and good location close to Oban, Glen Coe and Loch Lomond. Would recommend and certainly go back.

Seriously I had one of the best seafood chowders I've ever had in Scotland. I've travelled in New England and Nova Scotia and the chowder at Brander Lodge definitely rivals these. Thick, creamy and hearty laden with fish and mussels. Mmmmm I'm salivating thinking about it now. It was divine. We were pampered and indulged and I'd definitely return. We... More

Only had a bar snack as time was getting on, but this was very nice. Cooked breakfast was spot on and set me up for the day. An after thought, I should have asked if I could have... More
