Opened in 1705, The Drovers Inn is one of the oldest licensed premises in Scotland and located at the northern tip of Loch Lomond.
It takes its name from the Highland drovers who used to drive their cattle down the side of Loch Lomond to the markets. One of the most famous drovers was Rob Roy MacGregor (1671-1734), the famous Scottish folk hero and outlaw who is often referred to as the Scottish Robin Hood. The Inn was also used as a location in the German film Cloud Atlas starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry.
It is believed that he was a young drover who was murdered at the Inn after returning to seek revenge for the theft of his cattle by a rival clan. Today the Inn offers its visitors a very different experience with live music every weekend, and a wide range of Scottish cuisine. It’s the perfect stop for any walkers passing by for lunch or dinner.
‘With its 300 year history there have been many reported ghost sightings at this iconic hostelry including the ghost of an ancient cattle drover who can sometimes be seen wandering the hallways late at night.’
