My husband and I went for a late lunch just before Christmas thinking we were going to the main pub....but no its a little annexe built on at the side housing a gallery.

We stayed at the Loudon Hill Inn while flying at Strathaven balloon festival, the room was well presented to a high standard and comfortable, the staff were very friendly and the food was cooked to perfection by Dan.

No blackout linings on curtains, extension cable to tea/coffee tray goes more than half way up the wall. No bar and restaurant closed Monday's and Tuesday. Wee bit remote location, so if you expect to enjoy alternatives you need to drive... More

Had started as a nice visit, lovely setting and can't hear the road too much. Short menu, but nice food nonetheless. Breakfast was not included, I thought this was the idea of a BnB. Room was nice enough, except light fittings poorly On, towel rail came off the wall as I pulled the towel off. The Wi-Fi didn't work the... More
