Rowantree cottage presents a great value choice for comfort and hospitality for anyone considering a stay in Arrochar. We required a stopover for our halfway point between Leeds and Skye, and Rowantree cottage appeared to strike the balance between comfort and cost.
The welcome was friendly and the owner helpful and cheery throughout. The rooms were comfortable, both en-suite, with window seat views across the loch to Ben Arthur. The ceilings are a little low for tall people, but it’s an acceptable hindrance in return for a characterful setting. Beds were comfortable. No complaints over sleep quality.
The cottage is situated on the main road a stone’s throw from the loch, with both Ben Arthur’s Bothy and The Village Inn (Arrochar’s two pubs) within walking distance (2 minutes and 20 minutes respectively). The Village Inn offers a locally-sourced menu and a fine selection of regional ales, whilst the Bothy is a decent option if you’re on a tighter budget.
Breakfast was stunningly presented in the stylised wooden entrance hall, and was the perfect start to a hard day of driving. The Scottish sausage and haggis were delicious if perhaps a little rich for so early in the day, and overall the plate – whilst well-cooked – was somewhat dry. Despite this it was a nice change to have a traditional Scottish breakfast and the owner was very accommodating with requests should you prefer something else. The orange juice and coffee were fresh and delicious.
This is a small B&B, full of charm and handily located. It offers a comfortable night’s stay, a terrifically warm welcome, and a characterful breakfast send-off. Highly recommended for anyone considering Arrochar for a stopover or a longer stay, and for value for money it’s doubtful you’ll find better in this particular corner of Scotland.
