We missed our train therefore arrived a little later than anticipated. There was a large party of tourists who had arrived before us. There was a nice ambience. WE were seated at a lovely table looking on to Ben Lomond. We were due to go on a boat trip up Loch Lomond so decided we didnt want anything to heavy. The menu was lovely but we just fancied something smaller. The waitress suggested we go through to the bar restaurant, we did and the food was lovely. We went for ciabattas/baguettes with fries & salad - was really good and great value for money.
The staff were really friendly.
The view you get from Kilted Skirlie is amazing - looking out on to the Beautiful Ben Lomond - definitely recommend. I will be back

Traditional Scottish cuisine with a modern touch
Sourcing the finest local ingredients to ensure the highest quality fresh seafood, poultry and meat dishes, the chefs at Kilted Skirlie use traditional recipes yet give them a contemporary, unique twist. An example of such a dish is the haggis, neeps and tatties starter which is served as a ‘gateaux’ with a whisky and chive sauce.
Other menu items that have been popular with regular visitors include the chef’s creation ‘chicken in the heather’ (a tender chicken breast cooked in French mustard, honey, garlic and cream); the Scottish salmon Balmoral (fillet of Loch Fyne salmon, rolled in oats); and the kilted beef stew (beef cooked with red wine, herbs and root vegetables). Some distinctly non-Scottish dishes like Cajun enchiladas and vegetarian lasagne have also been known to make guest appearances on the menu at Kilted Skirlie.
