We had pre- booked and staff put on an excellent home made spread of soup , sandwiches and sausage rolls with as much tea & coffee we could drink to go with shortbread and chocolate cakes . There were no concerns about boots .

I've stayed at this hotel twice and I absolutely love it! Everything is just superb :) ... the food is excellent; the staff are lovely and it's so quiet that I slept really well. There are the most amazing views and brilliant walks around the area. The Black Bull is also dog-friendly, so I was able to take my dog...

Had dinner at The Black Bull last night. The food was amazing and the staff really couldn't do enough for you. When I mentioned that there was nothing on the dessert menu my son could eat because he has a milk allergy and asked if he could have a banana from the banana split or something they made him an...

Just spent two nights at this hotel for our anniversary. On arriving we were met by friendly staff who were very helpful. The room allocated was not really suitable although it was in very condition but unfortunately did not have sufficient space to hang our clothes. The owner had no hesitation in allocating a room that would meet our needs...

Stayed one night as part of our Rob Roy Way walk. Excellent accommodation, hospitality and food. Would definitely recommend. There is a signposted diversion to Gartmore off the main route. The hotel is approximately 10 miles walk from Drymen.

Staying at Cobleland campsite and unfortunately discovering the hard standing pitch we were allocated resembled a quarry we were very keen to get out for the evening. Booking into the campsite earlier we were delighted to be informed that a courtesy shuttle service ran between the local hotel, The Black Bull in Gartmore and the campsite. The shuttle ran at...

Dropped in coming back from a day out for something to eat, on an early Saturday evening. Looked deserted and shut up from the outside, and once we ventured in we were disappointingly the only people in the building. A pleasant member of staff led us to an odd, and very cramped room adjacent the bar area. The room had...
