Clearly this place has a monopoly on the west highland way travellers, and thus does not have to try. The food was poor, my steak and mushroom pie was far too salty and the veg on the side was flavourless and heated up from frozen.

The food was beautiful and service was equally just as great! The...

Just returned from a lovely one night break at the Oak Tree inn. Splendid spotlessly clean accommodation in one of the cottages with fabulous view over the Loch. The room was warm and bed comfortable with a big shower. Dedicated wifi per cottage and 27inch tv. Food was excellent and a minor error with our order quickly rectified with no...

Also tried the limited edition Balmaha Scotch that they had at the bar and ended up buying a bottle at the store next door. Lovely peaty and rich. Amongst my favourite...

Great food at reasonable prices. Definitely pub atmosphere with many things to choose on the menu. Mac and cheese and sticky toffee pudding a must! Great family atmosphere! Great local spot while going through the National Park.

Had another lovely stay at Oak Tree Inn...stayed in Aber Cottage, lovely room and great views. Had dinner from Xmas Menu...first class. Breakfast in the morning is not the best in the world of hotel breakfasts. Calibre of food in hotel is let down by breakfast choice. Feel hotel would benefit from a bigger choice of continental choice, fruit, cheese,...
