Inversnaid Lodge stands in a secluded, elevated position overlooking Loch Lomond and the spectacular mountains beyond.

All rooms have en-suite shower, WC and handbasin and tea/coffee facilities. There is a sitting room for guests' use, drying facilities, bar licence and fire certificate. The Lodge is surrounded by extensive woodland and rhododendron gardens and 50 acres of hill land, adjacent to the RSPB nature reserve.|
Evening Meals are sometimes available but only by prior arrangement.
Packed Lunches can be provided by prior arrangement and flasks filled. Crisps, chocolate or cereal bars, fruit juice and mineral water are usually available for sale.
