Why stay at Best Western Buchanan Arms Hotel & Leisure Club?

A lovely hotel located near the bonny banks of Loch Lomond, the BEST WESTERN Buchanan Arms Hotel & Leisure Club is the perfect choice for visitors planning a countryside retreat. Boasting brilliant facilities, lovely views and positioned on the world famous West Highland Way, it's excellent as a stopping off point on an exploration of the gorgeous countryside and even better as a bolt hole for a truly relaxing and refreshing holiday.

Get your holiday off to a great start by spending some time in the hotel's gorgeous pool and feel all of the stresses and strains of everyday life drift away in the spa bath, sauna or steam room. There's a tranquil relaxation room too and, if you're feeling more energetic, feel free to plan a workout in the hotel gym.

If a round of golf is your favourite way to chill out, you'll be glad to know there are two courses within a five minute drive of the hotel. Enjoy the views and have a go at the 18 hole Buchanan Castle Golf Club or the nine hole Strathendrick Golf Club, both located in nearby Drymne. Perfectly positioned in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, the hotel is also ideally placed for anyone who loves a stroll through stunning countryside and you'll find a whole host of historic attractions in the surrounding area. Plan an afternoon out at Stirling Castle, an adventure at Blair Drummond Safari Park or a wander around Glengoyne Distillery.

Once your sightseeing is done for the day, return to the hotel and a choice of several restaurants. For a contemporary vibe, try Salmon Leap, and for fabulous views, try the Conservatory. Both offer varied menus featuring local produce and inventive, delicious, dishes. Do be sure to save enough space for a drink in the Snug Bar with its wide range of whiskies, wines and non-alcoholic beverages as well as enchanting historic décor. Afterwards, retire to your comfortable room and enjoy a good night's sleep.
