Went yesterday for lunch and it was excellent. Had the Scampi and it was delicious as were all of the other meals. Staff very young and friendly nothing a bother. Lovely grounds and what views of Ben Lomond couldn't be in a nicer spot. Daughter was married here so has a special place in our hearts. Will be back soon.

Two day and nights. From the outside it looks the part of the old building it is. However the interior has all be brought up to modern comforts, without loosing it ancient appeal. Sitting on the south shore the views are breathtaking. Also you will find an 18 hole golf course (members) and spectacular gardens to wonder about in.

We stayed here 1 night in June and are very happy we did. It's a beautiful building and grounds right on the lake. We arrived late afternoon from Edinburgh. After being shown our lovely rooms we headed for the bar. Then, as the weather was lovely, we took a walk to the lake and garden before dinner. Excellent dinner and... More

Thanks Seeker321 for your terrific review. Ross Priory is indeed 'A Treasure' and I am so pleased that you all enjoyed your stay so much. Inchcailloch is certainly a beautiful room with a fantastic view. Torrinch is equally as lovely in our opinion and a little more secluded but still with that fantastic view - I'm sorry you felt it...

We spent my birthday at Ross Priory. We absolutely loved the property, the stunning scenery, the gardens, the room ...

We went to a small wedding at Ross Priory and thought the event was handled very well. The building is impressive, the staff were attentive and courteous, and the food was good. We were fortunate to be there in nice weather, and the views up Loch Lomond were breath-taking.
