Looking at the exterior of The Drovers you'd wonder if it is open, outside looks aren't it strong point, but beauty is only skin deep on this fine old establishment. Walking into the Pub you feel like you are going back in time, and I mean this in a good way, a roaring fire adds to the feel of the... More

This historic pub is absolutely unique. In winter you'll be welcomed with a roaring fire that will take away the chills. You'll also experience a fascinating collection of stuffed animals including a bear in the entrance hall. A real talking point and one to take make sure you take your camera for. Food is good but can get a bit... More

Visited the Drovers Inn now every year now for around 7 or 8 years in a group of friends. To be honest, it is an annual night away without the kids and copious amounts of alcohol! The Drovers has always had good entertainment on a Saturday night and a friendly welcome every time. The food is decent pub fare and... More

We missed the typical pub meals famous in Scotland like steak pie. There was no children's menu and you have to pay adult prices for them

Had to visit the Drovers Inn whilst touring round Loch Lomond. The Pub is great inside, very historic in its nature and all the features are really what make this pub stand out. Lots of Various artifacts on display including the large grizzly bear at the entrance hall. A definite tourist trap though to be honest. Staff all in kilts... More

Only one word can describe The Drovers...... FANTASTIC!!! What a place, stayed here for New Year and I have got to say it's the best Hogmany party I have ever been to. Everyone was so friendly, the staff, the locals and the guests. It feels like one big family party. Don't expect 5 star accomodation but its cozy and the... More
