What’s On Guide – Loch Lomond
We are very lucky here at The Drovers Inn to be based in what is quite arguably one of the bonniest locations in the world. With stunning scenery, bustling wildlife and abundant with pure, fresh Scottish air what could be a more perfect base for exploring this amazing part of the world. Here we give the low down on the best Events coming up over the next few months. So whether you’re after mouthwatering food, planning your dream wedding or looking for a good old knees up whilst sampling some local beers – our guide has it all.
These traditional Scottish events would go hand in hand with a stay at our Hotel offering a truly Scottish experience. There would be no better way than to finish off your long fun-filled day than with a Dram a Gin or even a cuppa in our lively little Bar before retreating to your room and soaking up our Scottish atmosphere. We have even added driving time from the Drovers Inn to each of the events– we like to be helpful that way!
