The Oak Tree Inn
One family has not only single-handedly changed the face of Balmaha forever, but they have done so humbly, quietly and with true style. With islands and the highlands as its backdrop, the Oak Tree Inn has really set the bar very high with what the Fraser family have created. As a small boy, Sandy Fraser knew full well just how proud his father was of the village they lived in, but they were also quite conscious of the fact that the village needed to be brought into the 21st century. That is exactly what this family has achieved, with sensitivity. Balmaha is starting to be the destination visitors just have to visit when travelling to Loch Lomond and we have to say; once visited, never forgotten. Based within the Loch Lomond National Park, the surrounding landscape is truly breath-taking!
We rarely feature an accommodation provider as an attraction in any one chapter, but the Oak Tree Inn is so much more than that! It offers outstanding accommodation, supported by excellent food in their restaurant and excellent coffee in their St Mocha Coffee Shop. No matter which part of the Oak Tree Inn you visit, the one thing that you can be guaranteed of is true customer service, which has always been at the forefront of what the Fraser family is all about. Having spent some time with the Fraser brothers, Stuart and David, and experienced this amazing business and the village itself, our author’s heart leapt for joy. Mainly because The Oak Tree Inn and the Fraser family are truly what this book is all about. A true Top 100 Attraction is one that is on your mind long after you leave, and that is why the Oak Tree Inn and the village of Balmaha is one of our hidden gem attractions.
