... apparently the road used by James Bond in Skyfall when he drove to his Scottish ancestral home. Just outside of Tyndrum we found Ewich House without any difficulty and were welcomed by Ian. We had our dinner at The Real Food Cafe in Tyndrum which is famous for its fish and chips. One of the staff told us that he was going to London for the chip frying finals in January! We had haddock and chips and it was a pretty good ...

Weather fine, but cool. Returned to Oban, enjoyed a meal at "Coast" - nice restaurant and then walked off what we'd eaten. Oban is very similar to Akaroa / Stewart Island (Sth Is, ...
... a bottle of 20 year old whiskey which had been made from 9 different vats which totalled 250 years of ageing. Cost was £300. Instead we bought a 10 year old whiskey which was much more reasonably priced. Back to the bar for dinner at our inn tonight before setting off to Fort William tomorrow. Time is flying past much too quickly and there is never enough time to see and do everything we would like ...

Crossing Mull required a hour and a half bus trip on one lane rods with Steve, cynical, witty, informed, irreverent bus driver chatting on in an amiable patter about everything from bike riders to the tartan set. Mull is majestic, mountainous, waterfally, ...

As we don't know too much about the squirrels it could have been an adult or a young one, though it was a great red colour.

Historical Traveler Reviews Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa Inveraray
Having recently returned from spending the Christmas Holiday period at Loch Fyne Hotel I feel I have to comment on the tremendous job all the staff did over this holiday. Their attention to detail was above and beyond what was required. They made every effort to make us comfortable and welcome, even down to making a snowman on Christmas Day The location is stunning. We shall certainly be returning.
Stayed here for 4 days (three nights) between Xmas and New Year. We didn't get as much walking done as we had hoped, because the weather was pathetic. Thank goodness for the pool, sauna and jacuzzi.
Can't beat this hotel for location,views,good food and service.Room was large double with side view over gardens, spotlessly clean and well stocked welcome tray.Good choice of dinner and breakfast menus well served by efficent and friendly staff.Short walk to town centre along loch side makes this an ideal short break location. We manage to get a last minute deal which ment this was great value for money.Have since recommended to friends who returned with same glowing reports.
Superb. Everything wonderful. Rooms lovely and clean, good standard. Food superb, staff first rate. We will return
The Loch Fyne Hotel at Inveraray, is very interesting. It is set in a stunning location with superb views of the loch. When entering the hotel for the first time, I was greeted with a friendly smile from a lady on reception who had very efficiently all my pre-booked details to hand.
Recently I celebrated my anniversary at Loch Fyne. the mini suite was fantastic, the housekeeping attention to detail was 1st class and the food and service second to none. I cannot praise this hotel enough. The management and staff went out of their way to ensure Alan & I had a great time and we would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
Don't miss this place if you are travelling near Inveraray.
I have visited this hotel twice. Firstly when I took my mother and because we got the holiday for such a cheap price at the time - I couldn't really complain (via Easybreaks). The food was ok and the room was alright. However I returned with my husband and our room was tiny and had dampness and mould which was foul smelling. I have to be fair and advise that we were moved to 'an executive twin' room which was not what we had booked (double) but anything was better than staying in the first room. Overall the stay was ok but the so called entertainment was woeful. I was embarrassed being a Scot as the place was full of foreign visitors and a few were unhappy about the accomodation, the food and definately the guy with the guitar. I doubt I'll ever return!!!
Contrary to their web site and brochure, this hotel has all the atmosphere of a run down Travelodge. The residents lounge is totally without atmosphere and any seating is the cheap variety previously used in their Bistro (now closed).
Bless the staff
Staff are treated absolutely horribly! Just make sure you tip them directly, rather than the rude management. I actually saw a waitress brought to tears over something so trivial. Spoiled an otherwise perfect meal.
I have stayed at this hotel twicw and fully intend to stay there again. The views are spectacular. The food is wonderful (Prices are for full board DBB). It also has a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jaccuzi. Looking over Loch Fyne while relaxing in the jaccuzi is really something. Highly recommended.
