Our friends treated us to a night at the Oak Tree for our silver wedding . Room was fantastic - in one of the buildings just down the road from the actual Inn itself . Immaculate, spacious , well presented , and that was just the huge bathroom with the huge shower ! The room was great - roomy ,... More

We stayed in Dan's Cottage, which is part of the Oak Tree with a lovely view of the Loch! The staff are really polite and friendly and the food is mouth watering, and if you just fancy a quiet night in you pop up to the reception and order a take away to have in your room!! This was our... More

Went here for lunch after a hike. The burgers we had were absolutely delicious. It is a bit pricey, but the food tasted so good that we thought it was definitely worth it! Although it was quite busy, we didn't wait too long for our food. The ambient inside is cosy and the nature outside is beautiful. Also, the place... More

I stayed one night here while walking the west Highland way with 5 friends. The accomodation, service and food were all great. My only criticism would be it would have been useful if breakfast was served before 8am as we would have like to have been on our way by then.

When we arrived, service was lovely and dinner arrived fairly quickly. The food was tasty, however just after starting my dessert I started to feel unwell. My partner and I were camping nearby and as we returned to our camp site I started to feel gradually worse. Approximately 2 hours after starting dinner I began to experience horrific food poisoning.... More

We're very sorry to hear about your experience. We see that this relates to a visit in June 2014, however your post was made in May 2015. We take food safety and hygiene standards very seriously and would ask that you get in touch ASAP to discuss this with one of the owners. Although it is a long time ago... More

A few days ago me and my boyfriend were hiking the West Highland Way. On our second night we decided to camp in Sallochy Woodland Camping, however, on the very same evening I suddenly fell very ill. It was about 11 o'clock and we realized we should probably find a warm bed instead very quickly. While the reception in the... More

I had dinner at this busy inn whilst hiking on the West Highland Way. Service was excellent; all the waitresses were friendly and efficient. My starter of garlic croutons with goats cheese topped with horseradish and beetroot chutney was good, though too much chutney in my view. I had the chilli for my main course which was very good. The... More

The second to last night of a five night motorcycle tour around Scotland saw me and a group of friends arrive at the Oak Tree Inn. There was a little bit of confusion over rooms but eventually myself and three friends found ourselves in the adjacent "bunkhouse" with the rest of our party in one of the hotel's nearby lodges....

We were here on a short trip and found the oak tree inn very expensive - even for a simple coffee and scone! The surrounding scenery makes up for the extortionate prices to a certain degree. Having said that we noticed lots of people who came for day visits bringing their own packed lunches.

My biggest warning about the Oak Tree Inn is the noise. The rooms are very close together, and there seemed to be no sound proofing, because we could hear loud conversations in all of the rooms around ours. Luckily, everyone appeared to have retired to sleep by midnight, otherwise I would have been tempted to call the front desk to... More
