Fodor's Expert Review Drovers Inn
Knowing its clientele, this quirky, noisy, friendly inn serves huge, hearty portions that are what you need after a day's walking on the nearby West Highland Way. Scottish staples like sausage and mash, minced beef, and haggis jostle for a place beside occasionally more adventurous dishes. The dining areas are hung with swords and copies of old paintings, but the best place to eat is the crowded bar. This is a genuine traveler's pub (hearty rather than elegant) with a range of whiskies and mounted animals presumably brought by earlier travelers. The bear at the door should not put you off (it is stuffed and very old). There is traditional music every weekend, and there are 30 rooms for rent.
