When the rumblings of hunger are upon you, or a little refreshment is required, you are quite literally spoiled for choice at Cameron House. From the Cameron Grill to the Claret Jug, all tastes and desires are catered for. Head Chef Ryan Neil sources only the freshest and finest of local produce in all his creations.
The Cameron Grill:
Rogues, thieves and vagabonds line the walls as you sit down at the contemporary Cameron Grill. You’re in good company & thankfully it’s only a mural depicting such notaries from clan days gone by. There’s a sizzle and a crackle in the air from the open fire as steaks are brought to tables. In the distance the open plan kitchen buzzes furiously with excitement and the occasional eruption of flame and steam from the grill. Time for wine you think, as a sommelier appears from the nearby walk in cellar…
After a short wander from the main hotel, avoiding the geese and ducks that play by the water’s edge, you enter the New England style Boathouse restaurant. Unstuffy but elegant, the place is abuzz with families and captains from the nearby marina. To sit in the restaurant or on the decking by the loch? The astonishing view is tempting, but the aromas from the wood burning oven creating the best pizza for miles, just swing it for you.
The Claret Jug:
The Carrick course is spectacular, but you’re on the 17th and already thoughts turn to The Claret Jug. The legendary Claret Burger and fries seems to drive you on relentlessly. You can smell victory or is that your burger on the Josper Grill already? you wonder as the last of the man sinks his putt. Soon you’re lazing back in a slouchy sofa with a tasty single malt in one gloved hand and the fabled burger is brought to your table. Rebel cries resound from another table as tales of the dramas and near-misses are retold time and time again as the wine and beer flows. Looking for great atmosphere and hearty fayre? True love awaits the golfer and non-golfer alike.
Great Scots Bar:
You’re in good company as you sit in Great Scots Bar. Gazing around you see the walls lined with famous Scots from past and present. Most of them have been here. But the biggest of all sits outside in plain view as you sink into a sofa by the window. Ben Lomond – dominating the Highland range resides over the loch – looking on at your choice of tipple. ‘You chose well,’ he rumbles, or was that the distant thunder rolling down the glens? Let’s hope I am so lucky with my next choice you think, purposefully striding to the bar to take on yet another Scottish legend of the bottled variety. True love awaits those seeking a night of legendary Scottish hospitality.
On The Map: Loch Lomond is located approx. 20 miles northwest of Glasgow. The main A82 road runs along the west shore of the lake en route to Fort William and beyond to Inverness.
Loch Lomond is celebrated in literature, song and legend and it’s just a stone’s throw from Glasgow. Near, but emotionally quite a distance. Loch Lomond straddles the Highland border, and the water changes as you drive north. The southern edge of Loch Lomond is broad and dotted with small islands. It is softly shaded by woods and Lowland meadows. However, north of the town of Luss, Loch Lomond narrows. It is here that it fills a deep trench that was gouged by glaciers during the Ice Age. Very theatrical of this Loch! At the heart of Scotland’s first National Park, Loch Lomond is the embodiment of the startling beauty of a Highland landscape. A hidden gem for centuries, Sir Walter Scott first brought the lake, and other areas in the Trossachs, to the public’s attention in his poem, “Lady of the Lake.” Then, as now, visitors admire the park’s soft hills, islands, and seashore.
