If you want to find a quiet, beautiful corner of Scotland that's not too far from Glasgow, then this traditional country house hotel is just for you.

My wife and I stayed there at the end of April with the rest of our extended family, as my daughter had chosen it for her wedding venue! I have to say, for a wedding venue, it couldn't be better, but also for an experience of the true Scotland, it would be hard to beat.

The hotel itself is in a wonderful setting, with long lawns leading down to Loch Long. There is plenty of wood-paneling, open fires, and of course a wide choice of whiskies at the bar! There is a range of rooms available, but I would recommend one of the master suites facing the loch as the views are magnificent. The standard of cuisine was also excellent. The wedding reception meal was far above the level you might expect, and the restaurant was of similar quality on other days too. I would advise any visitor to try the afternoon tea in particular, as you'd have to go a long way to beat it!

The hotel is quite isolated and you would need a car to travel around, but there are plenty of attractions worth visiting. We especially enjoyed Loch Lomond Shores, where there are shops, restaurants, children's activities and of course boat trips on the loch! Golf courses abound, opportunities for walking are everywhere, and of course the scenery is amazing.
