Our base is the village of Drymen at the southern end of Loch Lomond
The Winnock Hotel is located in the centre of the attractive village of Drymen and has proven popular with our clients for many years. The hotel, although fully modernised in terms of facilities, has retained its 17th century charm with original log fires, beamed ceilings and a warm welcome. All bedrooms are en-suite with colour T.V., telephone and tea/coffee making facilities. There is no lift but the hotel is on two floors only.
