Bed and Breakfast Description


The Hawthorns Bed and Breakfast in Drymen was built in 1873 by the Duke of Montrose to attract a doctor to the village, and for over 120 years it was home to four successive general practitioners.

All of our rooms are carefully decorated and finished to a very high standard, and have en-suite facilities with WC, wash handbasin and shower or bath. Colour satellite television and tea and coffee-making facilities complete the features, all designed to make your stay as comfortable as possible. In the morning a traditional Scottish breakfast is served in the dining room.


Argyll Attractions

Drymen is ideally located for touring Scotland, with easy access to the Western Highlands, the central belt and the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. Here are some of the attractions which can be found in the area:

Loch Lomond is the largest fresh water Loch in the United Kingdom, 24 miles long and five miles wide and at its deepest point nearly 600 feet deep.

Scotland's first official long distance walk, the West Highland Way is a fantastic 95-mile trail from Milngavie to Fort William. The Way passes through Drymen, making it a natural stop-over location, or a place to explore parts of the Way. Starting in Drymen, the Rob Roy Way is Scotland's newest official long distance walking route. It follows paths used by Rob Roy MacGregor in the 17th and 18th centuries, and finishes in Pitlochry in the heart of Perthshire.

Located in nearby Killearn, a tour of the Dumgoyne Distillery gives you a glimpse of the unique production process of this famous single malt whisky.

The historic city of Stirling is only 30 minutes drive from Drymen, and offers visitors a wide range of attractions. Highlights include the magnificent castle and the Wallace Monument, commemorating William Wallace, whose life was celebrated in the film Braveheart.

Traditional Highland Games are held in many towns and villages close to Drymen during the summer months.

Designated as a Forest Park in 1953, the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park is a wonderful place to visit for those looking to get away from it all. Walks, cycling routes, horse-riding, view points, fishing and much more.

Glasgow and Edinburgh are within easy diriving distance of Drymen, and offer the visitor everything that could be expected of such major cities. Highlights include Edinburgh Castle and Glasgow Cathedral.
