Excellent lunch

Finally got to take the drive from inveraray to eat here today. Was most definitely worth it. Between the four of us we tried most of the lunch menu and every plate of food we received was delicious and well presented.

Recent seaplane flight from Loch Lomond to the hotel by Loch Voil. Lovely location, especially when the sun shines. Hotel could not be faulted except for our lunch. £70 for two with their three course meal (no coffee). Really disappointed with the portions and the presentation. The saving grace was their lovely home made bread. In fact I would recommend... More

Came for lunch which was excellent. Surrounding is beautiful with loch at the bottom. Rooms looked lovely from the outside. Place to come to and not go out!

Quite a drive to get there along a single track road but well worth the effort. Would certainly like to stay at the hotel next time as the food was excellent. Friendly attentive staff serving very good food with lots of extras between courses.

We came in search of one of The Old Library Tearoom at Balquhidder, one of my favourite spots to visit in the summer months. We were disappointed to find it closed but relieved to discover Monachyle Mhor after driving further along the loch. I liked the bench seats outside and the sense of openness. We had a great lunch and... More

Helped by the great weather, which allowed us to sit outside for lunch, the food and service was very good. The fish chowder is to die for. Very pleasant indeed.
