Stayed at another local hotel, but had dinner at the Clachan Cottage for 2 nights in a row. First night, we were impressed as all 3 of us are vegatarians. Ordered the macaroni cheese and chips from the bar menu - portions generous, food lovely, and a great view of Loch Earn. (Bar is not the most glamorous, but prices reasonable). Next night, went back and just ordered the same thing, as the vegetarian menu is limited. We were later told that they had run out of macaroni, but they offered us vegetable curry instead - we agreed. This consisted of rice, 5 bits of microwaved dry veg, and mixed in a tiny bit of powdered cheese sauce (no taste of curry at all!). Was barely edible - tasteless and spiceless...but worst of all...they charged us a whopping £10.95 a plate! Ridiculous! So, for any vegetarians, if they run out of mac and cheese.......go somewhere else!!

We were well received at short notice and the food offered and served was well presented, wholesome and generous in volume. It served the purpose well but we did feel that as this is a tourist area it does not send out the strongest of messages in so far as what Scotland has to offer in terms of overall quality. Value for money was fair. The canned background(jukebox) music was too loud! The ambience for the lochside location could be improved. We would return if in the area after hiking.

We had dinner in the restaurant on Saturday night. Setting is very nice and some tables and chairs outside. Food was good, but overpriced for what you get. Service was slow. Given that this is a tourist area, staff would do well to offer service with a smile to create a better impression.

Fabulous setting - dreadful lunch. The sun was shining and we felt the setting was fantastic. We had eaten here before and had a nice lunch - but this week we were really disappointed. The food was cold, the service was slow and it was not value for money. The food was not cheap and sounded nice on the menu but was very disappointing when it arrived.
