We stayed here for one night whilst walking the West Highland Way. Our room was adequate though nothing special for the price. I was very glad we had booked an en-suite room having seen the state of one of the shared bathrooms which clearly had not been redecorated since the 1970s and did not even have a shower.... The pub... More

The room we stayed in was filthy. There was actual mould on the bed frame! The bathroom was tiny and grimy, the breakfast the following morning was an insult to hotel breakfasts... the whole place should really be avoided, which is a shame because the location is perfect and with a bit of effort this place could really be something...

My girlfriend had stopped for food here before when visiting Loch Lomond so we thought it would be nice to stay here on our visit. Great location and the Inn is certainly great to look at. Loads of stuffed animals and really old Scottish charm but this isn't then reflected when staying. The rooms were extremely basic, especially as it's... More

Probably the best hotel I've ever been. Great if you like the Scottish style and myth. The Drovers is a unique place with good food, fine drinks and a warm feeling. Very friendly people. Most guest are hikers or travellers which greats a certain family feeling between them. If you are near, you should definetely go and stay for the... More

I am giving this place 3 stars because of the character of the bar and the great food. The accommodation was adequate. I was given a room in the annex across the road. The room was a good size with a large four poster bed but no TV or wi-fi. The bathroom was a bit dated and not as clean... More

The most wonderful place I have ever been to, real scottish home made food, the best real ale on the planet, cosy fires warm company and host and hostess that are the best. When I visit Scotland its my destination, I cant get there enough, perhaps again this winter. I could write for hours about it, but no words can... More

We stopped the night here recently. As ever the bar was lively the service prompt and friendly, the band entertaining and even the tourists from Englandshire came close to insufferable as fellow patrons. Unfortunately whilst we do enjoy the shabby chic experience the room we had omitted the chic element. Most disturbing of all was the mysterious damp patch on... More
