Drove past this on my way home and had some nice waterfall scenery opposite from it and had benches outside as weather was nice and looked quite good driving past for a quick bite and a half pint. Well I dropped in and as i got closer i saw the faults which made me doubt the place before i got...

Me and my partner went here for a long weekend away. We didn't know this is where we were going as it was a surprise trip away from my parents. We arrived on the Thursday PM and we were warmly welcomed into the "taxidermy time warp". We went to reception and checked in. We asked what room we were in,...

Would recommend popping in for a quick meal as food was good and the pub was interesting , packed with stuffed animals and interesting artefacts. We stopped over when doing the West Highland Way . Not sure if I could recommend a warm welcome here ...our rooms were not ready till 3 pm , we were advised to call back...

Decent food for a reasonable price. Always a welcoming atmosphere. Toilets recently referred and what a difference. Always a great place to stop off and usually quite busy but not real delays on food. Also dog friendly. Look forward to my next visit,

Food was braw! Steak pie and the venison were both wonderful. Sticky toffee pudding was the best! Stayed across the road, room was clean and comfortable. Once we figured out how to work the shower we had plenty of hot water.I would definitely recommend this place!

My husband was really looking forward to staying here and he wasn't disappointed. The Drovers is definitely jam packed with character. Our accommodation here was actually over the road in a small terrace of lodges. The room itself was large and had all we needed, with a good size shower en-suite. Very dog friendly and the breakfast was absolutely fine...

I have to completely agree with "Allbrew2017" review. We also stayed here as an overnight while walking the WHW, and it was the worst we stayed in. It sounds like the same room - no television, no radio, no wifi, broken floor tiles, and a poor water heating system. The breakfast was in a tiny room full with guests, so...

I can honestly say I will never step foot in this flea pit again the staff and management were maybe the rudest people I have ever came across in a public house. The toilets are disgusting apart from the great entertainment this place has no redeeming features

My wife and I stayed here for one night while walking the West Highland Way. We had upgraded to a room with en suite in the lodge opposite, costing just under £100. The room was basic beyond belief with just a double bed, a small table and a rail instead of a wardrobe. The bathroom tiles were broken right across...

We stayed overnight while walking the West Highland Way. After a very hard days walking, we received a warm welcome. We were apprehensive about staying here, and indeed some of the public areas are in need of attention, but our room was good, the bed was comfy and the room was clean. It was in the main building and did...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located at the very top of Loch Lomond, The Drovers Inn is steeped in three centuries of Scottish tradition. In fact, Rob Roy himself has enjoyed hospitality at this world-reknowned hotel, bar and restaurant! Our residents vary from those who are stopping-over on their west highland way adventure, to those who are staying purely for the good food and entertainment. The bar regularly hosts local musicians and guests and guaranteed a lively time on Friday and Saturday nights. Come in for a heat - and stay for the warmth. ... more   less
