Bunrannoch House is an absolutely fabulous place to stay. Ben and Rita are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much of a problem.
Delicious home cooked Scottish food is their speciality. With wild game, venison, and lots more tasty treats, you leave the dining room each night feeling full and well fed.
The rooms are very tidy and well decorated with comfy beds and lots of little touches which make you feel at home.
Bunrannoch house really is a true Scottish gem, waiting to be discovered by all.
I truly recommend you stay at this very family friendly, delightful and truly magnificent hotel.
Ben and Rita are fantastic, unpretentious hosts. Welcomed on arrival with tea and shortbread. Rooms very comfortable. Rita's home cooking and local ingredients combine to provide some of the best food in Scotland. Wild salmon and partridge both superb and portions big enough to support a day of mountain walking. Well worth its top Trip Advisor rating for Rannoch.
We really did not know what to expect when it came to dining in Scotland. It has been 30 years since I had been to the Highlands, and at that time, I rarely ate anywhere but pubs. Sometime between then and now, Scotland has turned into a foodies paradise, with exceptional meals of game, seafood, vegetarian and local fare seemingly everywhere. Bunnrannoch House was the best of the lot, not just because of the quality of the food, but also because of the quality of the hosts. You really are part of the family here, in fact our second meal of the week happened to be the night the host was celebrating his birthday with his son's family. We didn't stay at Bunrannoch, we stayed at Carie House down the road, a wonderful experience in it's own right, but I can see why anyone would want to stay at this lovely Inn with it's wonderful views and charming farmhouse atmosphere. A huge herd of stag came into the fields just outside the house every night. If you are in the area you must not miss this place!
Terrific value for money
Hotel is in a beautiful setting near the lock. The room (ensuite) was basic but comfortable. Our hosts were very attentive to our needs and we had a highly amusing evening with Ben who has a fantastic non PC sense of humour. The three course dinner was a delight - venison shot by Ben! - as was breakfast. Highly recommended.
We will definitely return.
We booked this wee hotel to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. We had friends staying over and 17 people for an evening meal. What a fantastic place! Don't be put off by the slightly scruffy exterior - the owners, Ben and Rita, are in the middle of a major refurbishment of the building and things are just a wee bit "up in the air" at the moment. The welcome that awaits you inside is second to none. The bedrooms are very comfortable and clean, the sitting room and dining room are also very comfortable, relaxing and as formal or informal as you'd want them to be. Ben is a super host - once you get used to his dry sense of humour. The food is almost entirely locally sourced (you've got to try the Pike and Trout Pate, made from fish caught in Loch Rannoch, a stone's throw from the hotel), and Rita is an absolute wizard in the Kitchen! Ben and Rita designed the menu to suit our party - vegetarians, vegans, gluten free - she takes everything in her stride and produces food that any top establishment would struggle to compete with. The portions are generous, to say the least, and she makes the best Apple Crumble I have ever tasted. If you want to sample a dram of good whisky, Ben is your man - and like Rita, he's not mean with the measures.
Everyone in our group said that they'd love to go back and spend at least a weekend here. A perfect spot for good food, good drink, nestling between Loch Rannoch and Schehallion, and all at really good value for money.
Ben and Rita made a special night even more memorable.
