My family and I headed out yesterday for lunch at Loch Venacher. The location and decor get 5 stars, absolutely beautiful views. The food is expensive and very small portions. My “vegan salad” had small slivers of vibrant beautiful vegetables but these were literally shavings,...More

I think it may well be as there is no other cafe restaurant on Loch Venacher that I'm aware and I've being there for a good number of years. Hope this helps
