“A hidden gem on the banks of Loch Lomond”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Ross Priory is a peculiar cross between guest house/hotel/conference centre/golf club. However this should not put you off. We stayed in a room on the ground floor which was spacious and beautifully appointed with views to die for. Generally no staff remain on site overnight and there is no reception at all. There is an emergency telephone number overnight and the staff are around and available although ringing bells is necessary to locate them. Once around the staff are very obliging and helpful, particularly Kate the housekeeper, who is totally lovely. The purpose of our stay (2 nights) was for a wedding, which is when the novel arrangement of Ross Prior came into its own since there was no-one else to disturb and the party could run to its natural course. Breakfast is good but only served between 8.30 and 9.30am which is a bit limited in my opinion, particularly if one is on holiday and wants a later start.

Visited with friends in late July,walked in the gardens and admired the views from the front of the house across the Loch while husbands played golf. Had lunch which was very nice. A lovely peaceful setting and we had nice weather,what's not to like.

We had our wedding reception at Ross Priory on Saturday the 6th of July 2013.The hotel and the location provided for the perfect setting and back drop to our wedding. The staff helped to make the day run smoothly, with the food to a very high standard. All our guests had a wonderfully time, and would highly recommenced Ross Priory as a wedding venue for anyone who is considering it.

We booked Ross Priory as a relaxing end to our road trip to Scotland and were not disappointed. Everything was perfect from the location, rooms, friendly staff to the delicious cooked breakfast. My husband played two rounds of golf on the short but challenging course which was the icing on the cake for him. We look forward to a return visit in the future. Thank you to all the staff at Ross Priory.

I have actually been here for two weddings now and have loved both visits. Friend of mine got married here on 14 June and it was a great day. Simply put Ross Priory is stunning. Friendly and polite staff made it a great day and the meal was excellent. Do check out the Priory and go a little walk around this magnificent place the rooms are lovely. With a golf course to look at from the front and Loch Lomond to your immediate left you will not be disappointed.

My partner and I recently spent a celebratory weekend at Ross Priory and were very impressed, particularly by the food, excellent service and beautiful rooms. Log fires, comfy sofas and views of snow-capped mountains added to our experience and the friendly staff made us very welcome. Lovely walks in the grounds and the courtyard will be a suntrap in summer - we'll be back to sample the delights again then but in the meantime, if you want a romantic, away-from-it-all couple of days then Ross Priory fits the bill!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Loch Lomond and the mountains
