We went there with a friend for dinner (without a reservation), and enjoyed the beautiful view over the loch Linnhe. The service was fast and friendly. I had the soup of the day, very good and quite filling, and a baked fillet of seabass, which definitely made it to my top 5 of the best fish I've ever had. My... More

We pitched up without a reservation on a Sunday evening. The hostess sat us at a window table. Floor to ceiling window, mind you, overlooking Loch Linnhe. Service was prompt and friendly, and the menu was varied with an emphasis on local produce. I had langoustine caught from the Loch, followed by venison. Hubby had Cullen Skink followed by pasta....

I chose to sit outside, which, for this time of year was going to be a time of competing with the midges: me for food, them for me! Apart from that, I couldn't fault the food for the night meal, or the presentation of breakfast.

The Holly Tree is a nice restaurant, located in a nice hotel. There is an absolutely stunning view from the restaurant. The only problem is the food isn't good. Although my fish was fine, the chips were obviously the frozen sort...the only frozen chips we were served during 3 weeks in Scotland. My husband ordered a bison burger which was... More

Had a lovely meal of Salmon in lobster thermidor sauce. Booked a table...efficient and friendly service from quite a young staff. The meal was quite delicious.... Salmon absolutely cooked to perfection. Also great to go out on to the verandah and watch the setting sun. The hotel is certainly in a beautiful location...would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the... More

Restaurant is located on the loch with great views. Make sure to make reservations as it is a very busy spot.

My wife and I ate a late dinner at the Holly Tree Restaurant on August 2nd based on a recommendation from our B&B owners. The restaurant was crowded when we arrived around 8 p.m. but we were able to get a table after a short wait. The views of Loch Linnhe from the dining room were spectacular. We do not... More

Three years ago we dined at this restaurant during our first visit to Glen Coe. We had a lovely dinner then, and so returned during our second stay in Glen Coe this year. We were not disappointed! The food is simply delicious. Even the 'simple' pasta was fantastic. They have both 'classic' and original dishes, and a large choice of... More
