As you arrive the magical waterside setting will take your breath away. If you enjoy supremely fresh seafood, comfortable rooms with stunning views, great individual hospitality and an area with fabulous seascapes with an island feel your stay at The Royal an Lochan will leave nothing to be desired. We are however only 90 mins from Glasgow and on a scenic peninsula.

Stayed 2 nights here with dinner only on first night. Owners are trying hard but the level of comfort, service and quality is inconsistent. Bar was basic - tap choice poor. Dinner was disappointing - prebook offer was based on the online menu but both the Langoustines and the

HI Jane Thank you for your review, all be it, disappointing for you and for us to read, I am sorry you didn't enjoy the food, I am surprised to hear the scallops were overcooked as the chefs really take pride in every dish that leaves the kitchen and are experienced in cooking, especially seafood, perhaps next time you visit the area will you will give us the opportunity to make amends. I totally take on board your point with regards to the cruet dishes and will endeavour to replace these as soon as I can find an alternative. I thought I would just let you know too that Greg & I (the owners) weren't actually here when you arrived or in the restaurant through dinner, we had a night off, our staff member who checked you in may seemed nervous but I would say it was more he was desperate to get it right for you, our staff all deliver excellent customer service at all times, we know this because of the consistent feedback we receive, again apologies this was not your experience. I believe that we all work together in this beautiful village, it would be naïve of us to think we have a captive audience, Its so important that all our visitors and locals alike have a great experience wherever they eat/stay etc. so that they will fondly remember and come back to Tighnabruaich again and again, and the locals therefore can have choices, always getting quality but just a little different option for each occasion. I know we all promote & recommend each other as a part of building this experience, we are proud of what we have here as a collective tourism experience. Kind Regards Greg & Gill

We were sailing with friends through the Clyde and into the Kyles of Bute, their boat wasn't big enough for all to sat on board so we needed shore accommodation for 2 adults and 2 children. I called Gregg and he was able to put two good quality fold up beds into a double room
