The inn is situated by a beautiful loch and has superb views out to the loch and surrounding hills. We just stopped by for a coffee & soft drink but were really disappointed. Both coffee and soft drinks were awful (my fresh orange and lemonade did not feature fresh orange - it tasted more like diluted orange!). Also the seating...

Fawlty Towers re-created but in a stunning location. Arrived in a power cut so not a good start. Ordered a pint at the bar but a search had to be mounted for a pint glass. Room very small, no TV and not even a clock. No cold water or toilet flush due to power cut. When water returned, the plumbing...

And dogs allowed in. We only had a drink as they weren't serving food when we visited which was a pity as we were hungry. Friendly pub, don't know what the rooms are like, it's a bit dark inside, but could easily be made more attractive.

Son & I had a night here with the campervan. Lovely weather, great walking on lochside and loads of room to run around and play in the field. But loo block unfinished, no showers (which is fine for lads for one night, however) forgot to shut window on van as dusk approached and was joined by several thousand midges, not...

We booked into this hotel because of the location, expecting somewhere interesting and because we didn't want anywhere corporate or anonymous. Unfortunately the whole place is pretty tired and run down with much poorer amenities compared with other hotels charging the same prices. Our room was small, with no TV - although the plug sockets and arial were still high...

Stunning location on the banks of St Mary's Loch, the first thing that grabs you when you arrive is the outstanding friendliness with which you are greeted on arrival. Campsite itself is very basic and probably more suited to experienced campers. This will however change in coming months as the amenities are in the process of being upgraded. Campfires are...

I stayed at this famous hostelry for one night while walking part of the Southern Upland Way. I don't think I have ever stayed anywhere as friendly. The owner sets the tone which soon spreads to the guests. I observe that reviewers divide between those who love this remote hotel as it is and those who would rather have found...

Had a lovely stay at Tibbie Shiels Inn during May and was lucky enough to discover a rare insectivorous plant nearby called Butterwort in two locations. It’s a small plant with a basal array of vivid, sticky, green leaves which has adapted to living in a nutrient-poor environment by trapping small insects and then rolling up its leaves around them...
