Fodor's Expert Review Balloch House

Balloch Road, Balloch, West Dunbartonshire, G83 8LQ, Scotland

Cute, cozy, and very Scottish, this small hotel offers simple but clean rooms along with tasty breakfasts and good, hearty pub meals like fish-and-chips and local smoked salmon for reasonable prices. Rooms are spacious, and some have great views of the loch; beige tones and wooden furniture are appealingly neutral. In the pub downstairs, the tartan carpet and burning peat fires are nice touches, as are the low ceilings and flickering candles. On the menu, the roast carrot and apple chutney tart is especially tempting.
