About The Lochside

The Lochside is a traditional guest house found in the village of Arrochar, on the shores of Loch Long, deep in the Loch Lomond National Park. The outdoor decking area affords great views of Ben Arthurs and the surrounding mountain ranges, Loch Lomond is less than a five-minute drive away and a wealth of climbing and hiking is found close by.

All rooms are non-smoking, have en-suite bathrooms with showers, free Wi-Fi, a TV, hairdryer and tea & coffee-making facilities.

The Lochside has its own boat slipway, plenty of free parking, a lounge gives respite during bad weather and CCTV cameras and live-in staff are on site.

Full Scottish breakfasts, lighter options and packed lunches are available, and the bar offers pub food and refreshments, with a pool table and football shown.

Glasgow Airport is a 45-minute drive away, and the Loch Lomond Golf Club is around a 20-minute journey.

Positive Reviews

Mountain location, right on the loch front.

The Lochside boasts a great location amongst the mountains, close to fantastic walks like the Cobbler, while the decking and patio area has a breathtaking view out over Loch Long.

Helpful and personable team.

You will find the staff to be warm, welcoming, and very helpful in offering suggestions on where to dine and local attractions, and also how to get there.

Delicious breakfast variety.

The Lochside’s guests were happy with being able to choose their breakfast option, with lots of variety, good-sized servings and a bar next door serving decent food and drink.

Negative Reviews

Single stayers can find it cramped.

Those who stayed in the single rooms found them to be a bit small, with similarly sized showers, but they also proved to be manageable for a night or two.

Walls a little thin.

A light sleeper who happens to be next to some loud guests may find the walls to be thinner than required, so bring some earplugs just in case if this sounds like you.

Ask for Loch-facing room.

It goes without saying that the rooms facing the loch are preferable, but they are less likely to get traffic noise than those on the other side so are also good for the noise-sensitive.
