  • “A Wee Gem”

    The Oak Tree Inn is a great place to stop off for walkers, cyclists, bus tours or when you\'re just out on a peaceful drive. Beautiful in all seasons as the log fire crackles away during Winter months and the surrounding scenery is spectacular. My husband and I never tire of a visit. Would highly recommend a visit for lunch or dinner and even better to stay overnight and also sample the lovely breakfast.

  • “Delicious Meal, Great Atmosphere”

    Stopped here for a meal whilst on a walk round Loch Lomond. We had a steak and a burger. Both were absolutely delicious. My husband said his steak was the best he has had for a long while, cooked to perfection. My burger was also the best I can remember tasting. The service was excellent. I mentioned to the waitress that I had never tasted haggis and the chef sent out a small dish to taste. There is a lovely atmosphere in the bar, very cozy and decorative. Would definitely recommend.

    We stayed for a night at one of the Oak Tree Inn Cottages. Great view from our room and both the dinner and breakfast were delicious. The pub is super cosy and the hospitality was amazing. Will definitely return.

  • “Great B&B in a Wonderful Setting”

    We spent one night at Oak Tree while driving around the highlands. We had the family suite, which has 2 rooms - one with a king bed and the other with a single + a set of bunk beds. Lovely big bathroom with rain shower. Really comfortable for the 4 of us and very clean. Staff was helpful and warm, a most pleasant stay. Hiking in the area is simply amazing. The highlands has spectacular landscape and the mountain trail from the carpark across Oak Tree offers superb views.

    We visited the restaurant here on our last night in the area and had a delicious meal in the bar of the Oak tree in. Food was of a high standard and atmosphere was warm and cosy. Would also highly recommend the coffee shop attached - had a great coffee and lunch there earlier in our trip!

    We had a meal at the restaurant for my birthday and they catered for all of my dietary needs (vegan, gluten free) without any fuss. The food was phenomenal and the service was spot on! I would definitely recommend staying here and we would stay again. Thank you Oak Tree Inn!

  • “Best Place on Loch Lomond”

    This place, what can I say! It was stunning. Immaculately clean, beautiful area, and superior service. We got upgraded to a cottage, and it was spectacular. We ate breakfast two days and it was delicious. The food at the restaurant was 5 star quality. We can not express how impressed we were with all of the stay. We hope to make it back there one day.

    Just came back from a two day break in the lovely Oak Tree Inn. Lovely food, very attentive staff, nothing was a bother to any staff member great to see that as a lot of people come from all over the world and this could be the first Scottish welcome for them. Plenty to see and do in Balmaha great walking boat trips kayaking canoeing! It was fantastic and to all the staff you are brilliant, a credit to Scotland looking forward to staying again.
