Experience the quieter, ‘local’ side of Loch Lomond with a trip out to Gartocharn. Witness the charms of rural life and scenery, whilst making sure to drop by our 5* visitor attraction as graded by Scotland’s national tourism agency, Visit Scotland.

Take a break from the action and adventure so readily available in Loch Lomond. Allow yourself a few leisurely hours to peruse both our art gallery featuring talented local artists, and our eclectic emporium of deli, gift and fashion items which truly can’t be found on the high street! Punctuate your perusing with a treat or three from our stylish, yet cosy licensed coffee shop serving breakfast, afternoon teas, lunch and delightful in-house bakery products.

Open 9:30am-6pm everyday, last menu orders taken at 5pm. 


rural village on the southern shore of Loch Lomond.

Our idyllic location of Gartocharn is situated at the quieter south end of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, sitting in the shadow of Duncryne Hill, affectionally known locally as the ‘Dumpling’ because its shape resembles a cloutie dumpling. Gartocharn offers visitors to the wider region insight into the gentler pace of Scottish rural life largely unchanged by modern day hustle and bustle found only a few minutes drive away closer to the loch shore
