Lovely night's stay
We had a great stay for one night over a weekend out hill walking. Our bed was huge and the whole room was very comfortable, with a lovely new bathroom with views out over the hills. Location was excellent and we had a really warm welcome. We would definitely stay here again.

On top of the Golden Larches.
Rooms are above the restaurant. Quiet since they quit serving food at 7 pm. We went down the road to Mhor 84. Good food and had some live entertainment. Rooms are along the road but not much traffic going by. Lots of space but stairs to climb.

Great!
We loved everything about The Golden Larches - the setting, the supper, the bed, the breakfast, chatting with the owner and the iced ginger cake for the road! Thanks Alistair for the great directions - we had a lovely day driving through the park and seeing Loch Lomond AND we made the ferry! Come see us in Colorado. Mary
