Laid back breaks near Loch Lomond.

Best Western Buchanan Arms Hotel and Spa offers a truly relaxing retreat within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, in the conservation village of Drymen.

Our picturesque location on the world famous Highlands Way makes this fabulous hotel a must-stay-in. From the bar to the spa, we'll give you a warm welcome night and day.

Whether you want to get out and about along Scotlands Central Belt, take a day trip to the coast or stay closer to your home-from-home and enjoy our beautiful surroundings, we'll be happy to guide you when it comes to things to do north of the border.
