Today this fine tradition continues with our unique selection of award-winning Single Highland Malts, Single Casks and Special Vintages, still lovingly produced on the premises. Their range of distillery tours, in-depth nosing sessions, private dining and unique hospitality includes our legendary Master Blender sessions, when our guests create their own individual whisky to take home. The Glengoyne Distillery experience is incomparable.
A little known Gem that will make a welcome addition to any Scottish Holiday, is a stop at the famous Drovers Inn. Situated on the road to Crianlarich near the beautiful Banks of Loch Lomond, you feel like you have been transported back in time to the romance of Highland Life as a Cattle drover or Jacobite. Just outside the Inn are the Falls of Falloch which have significance to any Rob Roy fan.
The interior of the inn has not changed in the past 300 years and this can definitely be seen from the stuffed animals to the bare walls showing through long since faded wall paper.
The hospitality on offer is fantastic and is true to the ”Highland Code”, the atmosphere is very welcoming and in the evenings you feel like you have been invited a wonderful highland gathering with the odd fiddle player, dancing and happy people sitting together. It pulls on the heart strings and makes you, if you are a Scot, feel very patriotic or if you are foreign, you will feel at home.
The food and drink is also something to mention. Being a Scottish restaurant and bar there are obviously a wide variety off Malt Whiskeys on offer and Scottish themed dishes like Aberdeen Angus Steaks and Roasted Wild Boar. If this doesn’t tickle your taste buds there are other more international dishes and drinks on offer such a lasagne and coke.
The Inn also offers accommodation and is very popular with ghost hunters. There are supposedly a few ghostly residents at the Inn. If you are a sceptic however, the rooms are full of charm and the delight of sleeping in a room with so much history should really appeal.
