This was our first stop on the West Highland Way. Colin gave us a warm welcome and showed us to our room and made sure we had received the right bags from baggage transfer.

Room was compact but ample for our needs. It was lovely to have a bath and have a good soak in advance of our day 2 walk. Toiletries provided.

We had the twin room above the garage and breakfast room and there is a small kitchen with tea/coffee facilities and actually an area for cooking if you didn't want to go out for dinner. It was sunny during my stay and I had a lovely seat in the garden with the furniture available.

My only suggestion would be to not use fabric condition on the towels. I am allergic to it and felt the smell overpowering and had to dry myself with some clothes instead.
Others could be in the same boat.I also think it makes the towels feel a little wet.

Good breakfast in the morning. I'd recommend it.

Drymen rooms has several different room options -- two twin rooms on an upper floor, one double room on the ground floor, and a smaller separate building (the "Garden Room"). I was in the Garden Room which was small and compact (barely enough room to house the queen bed). The bathroom was small but functional with a shower only. The in-room tea and coffee amenities were basic, nothing special added. Breakfast the following morning was satisfactory. The room had TV and free WiFi.

This was our first stop on the WHW after Milngavie. Whilst we had a warm welcome it was not that engaging and we got the impression that we were going through a turnstyle. I guess it's quite difficult to do anything different when the majority of stays are one night. However other places along the way seemed to manage it ok!! The room downstairs is too small and the window treatments are not block out. My wife had to leave her bag outside the room as there was not enough room inside. Breakfast was adequate but we felt that they had only put out enough for each individual i.e. one yogurt each one piece of fruit each etc. The BnB is located well close to the WHW and local amenities but we would recommend elsewhere. We do not often put a negative review on trip advisor but we fail to see how this place can be all "roses"

Thanks for taking the time to leave this review. While disappointing, it gives me the opportunity to reflect on what we offer and how we can improve.

It’s interesting that you describe your welcome as “warm but not engaging” when both words are actually synonyms for the other?

You also compare us to your other accommodation on the WHW which is inevitable. We note that, with few exceptions, the rest were hotel standard. It would not be appropriate to disclose pricing but a bit of internet research would tell you that your room rate at some of your others was 2-3 times what we were paid for your stay.

Your room has been assessed and graded by Visit Scotland where we exceeded the size requirement for a b&b. Further, your room has been certified for disabled access. We are sorry it was not acceptable to you. In eight years, I’ve never known anyone to have to leave their bag outside. Curiously, at no point did I see your wife’s bag outside the room?

Your room is in a shaded, north facing location, we feel the blind offers appropriate shade but admit it doesn’t offer 100% blackout when the window is open.

Fruit and yoghurts are replenished when required. You could have eaten as many as you liked. Note, however, as a B&B at this price point, we are under no obligation to provide these items. We do so in goodwill to the pleasant and fair walkers who cross our door.

Again, thanks for your thoughts.

The room and bathroom was very clean and nice. Colin, the host, made a tasty and hearty breakfast -- perfect for those who are hiking the West Highland Way or the John Muir Way. It was very close to The Clachan pub which was great for dinner and beer.

I stayed here in August on my first stop on the West Highland Way. The room was really nice and relaxing place to rest up after the first hike and the breakfast was exactly what I needed t start my second day of walking.
