I had a great experience! The staff were terrific, very friendly and accommodating. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone exploring Loch Lonond or hiking the West Highland Way as it's conveniently located. Oh, and the traditional Scottish breakfast is amazing!

We stayed at the Hawthorns for a week. We will return there for we liked it. The breakfast was excellent. It's a good place to explore the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Chris and Jane were very helpful. We went to the Clachan and the Drymen Inn for dinner. Both places are about a two minutes walk away.

I had a lovely first night off the trail (WHW) at the Hawthorns! I arrived early but they were very accommodating holding my stuff and letting me into my room as soon as they could. They were very sweet and welcoming. Just know that if you are coming off the trail, it can be a little confusing- you have about...

We arrived on a cold wet afternoon to a warm and cheery welcome. Once signed in Jane gave us a tour of the well thought out amenities and left us to settle in. The family room was more like a suite, with lots of space for an energetic 3yr old and travel cot for the baby. After a very comfortable...

We were given a warm welcome by Chris on our arrival after our first day walking the West Highland Way and despite being earlier than the arrival time on the front door, this presented no problem. We were shown to our room, which was quite small, with a bathroom outside in the hallway but this was reflected in the price...
