We were hoping to do a walk up Kirkton Glen but when we arrived we found a sign from the forestry commission saying the conditions were not safe and the trail was closed. With no alternative plan we wandered a bit further into Balquidder and saw a sign for the Mhor. We decided to have a wander up and I have to say Kirkton Glen's loss was certainly our gain. We sat outside with our dog and the views were spectacular. The lunch menu was just being finalised so we ordered a drink in preparation. We both had the scallop starter which was delicious, then my partner had the monkfish with squid ink and cod roe, I have never been a fan of monkfish but was persuaded to try it and it was fantastic, I am now a convert. I had the pork which was so soft and tender it melted like butter in the mouth. What a beautiful way to while away a couple of hours in the sunshine.

about 10 miles up a narrow road but lovely scenery so take plenty of time and enjoy the whole experience. Great food beautifully served. sunday lunch is £34, for 3-courses plus an amuse bouche and home made bread. Nice friendly staff.

Whilst it takes a bit of careful driving to get there,it is certainly worth it. We only went for a plate of soup (which was really good !) the reception and the service we got was second to none. The young Belgian gentleman made us welcome and chatted to us as if we were old friends. The views are spectacular and the restaurant very intimate.

We were passing this hotel and popped in on the off chance for lunch. We struggled to find where the entrance was but someone saw us and guided us through to the restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The views were fantastic, we would love to stop here for a night in the future. The food was really nice and reasonably priced for the quality.

The food was nice if not very slow in coming and the egg on my burger was burnt to a crisp, a much better ambience than was in the previous hotel ( kings house )but they need to stop taking themselves so seriously
