Loved the brekkie with fresh made scones and marmalade follwoed by something light and followed by some Scottish fayre usually smoked fish. Perfect way to start the day. Evening meals are devine.

We walked here for a drink from the Loch Voil Hostel on the other side of the loch (about 25 mins). The setting is absolutely stunning outside and really cosy inside. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent bar and highly recommended.

The location and the accommodation. Extremely comfortable, quiet and attractive rooms. I feel that it may be living on its past reputation and that other expanding interests in the company group may be leading to the managers taking their eye off the ball.

Loved the choice, the quality of the food and the amazing depth of flavour in every dish. Local produce and organic. Loved everything about it - nothing to dislike!

We went for dinner at Monachyle Mhor after years of meaning to do so and our expectations were very high. Too high perhaps. The food was good but at the price charged it is not acceptable to serve sprouting broccoli that has "gone too far" and was virtually inedible. Some of the dishes seemed to have too many ingredients and... More

Everything about Monachyle is superb from the wonderful idyllic location overlooking the loch and hills, the lovely boutique hotel style rooms, very friendly staff, and not least the fine local produce. This was my first trip back in probably 10 years and definitely since the full makeover which has taken the once comfortable farmhouse hotel to the very modern boutique... More

loved environment and views. Disliked several dog poos on the ground in the outdoor seating terrace and car park area. Dogs and children are free range there. £4.50 for 2 golfball sized scones but they were fresh and nice jam.

It was a miserable night as we drove down the one way track, but boy was it worth the effort ! From the welcoming cosy bar and roasting fire, we kicked off withtt the most wonderful amuse bouche followed by an excellent three course meal with the freshest of produce. The service was friendly but not intrusive. We thought the... More

The rooms are great and very comfortable. The surroundings are gorgeous. The food is simply delicious fab wood pigeon and melt in the mouth lamb. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. It's a bit expensive but you get what you pay for. Would highly recommend.
